Evaluation of Stop-Motion Project<br />By Sammi Wilde<br />
How did I use technologies to create my product?<br />Digital Camera:<br />When shooting my stop motion film, I used a digital camera . This allowed me to edit the pictures I had taken. It also meant the images were a better quality. I could upload them to a computer and edit the sequence of photos into the desired film.<br />Tripod:<br />I used a tripod to steady the camera and to make the individual shots precise and level with the set.<br />
Cont.<br />Slideshare:<br />After editing my film, I created an account on ‘SlideShare’ and uploaded my film onto the site. The file was too big so I went back onto PowerPoint to re-edit my film by splitting it into 6 parts and then uploaded them to the site.<br />Link to SlideShare account: http://www.slideshare.net/xx-tawnygurl-xx/edit_my_uploads<br />YouTube: <br />Eventually ,I will be able to upload the film to YouTube. This allows other people to watch the film and comment on it. <br />

How did this task enable me to be creative?<br />‘Creative’: Relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas.<br />Creating the set for my film was difficult. I needed to acquire a reasonably sized box, pictures of a kitchen, floor and food; as well as the stars – fruit. <br />To show the fruit speaking, I wrote on some lined paper and cut it out in the shape of a speech bubble and placed next to the character with blu-tac.<br />Funny as it is, I dreamed my film narrative... My main character: Orange, was having a birthday party, but no one turned up. He became really upset but eventually his friends did turn up after a build up on the M60.<br />NARRAT<br />I<br />VE<br />Acquiring the other characters was reasonably easy due to my family being the ‘healthy’ sort. The character’s ranged from: apples, oranges, bananas, lemons, melons and grapefruits. <br />B<br />UILDING<br />THE<br />
Cont.<br />To create emotion on my characters, I drew faces on each of the fruit, I also added hair and other accessories like hats to add personality.<br />I didn’t work with anyone on this project because I wanted to create the film by myself. But whist editing the film, I asked for the opinions of my family as to whether it was: too fast, too slow, bad quality etc.<br />After watching some films on YouTube, I found inspiration for my film. <br />At my house, the only room where we get the most reasonable lighting is in the conservatory which is where I ended up creating my film. Luckily, the rest of the family were elsewhere so I could knuckle down and concentrate on what I was trying to achieve.<br />Time wasn’t an issue when I was making this film. I had the house to myself and the conservatory door shut so I couldn’t get distracted by noises and the radio.<br />
