EvaluationQuestion 4 – How Did You Use Your Media Technologies?
Question 4• Throughout my production I had used a lot of different types of hardwares and softwares. I had used some hardwares and softwares which I have never used before. However I have learnt excelled in using them now. The main media equipment I had used was the Camera kit, I used the camera and the figrig to film my trailer. I had also used the tripod too, however using the tripod was difficult because I had a hard time adjusting it. I also used a compact camera to take pictures for my recce and for my auditions.
Question 4• For the editing side to my production I used the Final Cut Express HD. I found this extremely difficult to use. I struggled so much and worried that I wouldn’t be able to create my film. But eventually I did, I got a lot of help and was able to use the main features and functions.• While working on Final Cut Express I became familiar with the functions and was therefore able to use them to create my film trailer.• At the end I have learnt more than I knew before I began to use Final Cut Express HD.
Question 4• For editing my ancillary products I combined my magazine and poster creation by using Adobe Photoshop CS3. I personally hate this software, it is very hard and confusing to work with.• Somehow I managed to use it till the end of my productions. But I would never use it again, everything on Adobe Photoshop is confusing and complicated.• The functions seem simple but when you want to use them its very annoying. Adobe Photoshop frustrated me so much.
Question 4• I used the Apple Mac Computers to carry out all my work, using MAC is a difficult because its complicated.• Mac is very different from the normal Windows operating system. However I got used to it and eventually taught myself how function the Mac.
