I will be using the Canon camera for my tasks in A2 Media, in order to take images for out promotional poster,CD/album cover and if necessary images to show evidence of the process leading up to each project that needsto be completed. From past experience, I am confident to sat that the Canon camera takes amazing qualityphotos, in which I ensure you that the images for out promotional posters and CD/album cover will be atexcellent standard.
The tripod is extremely important for my music video, as it makes sure that the camera is still, whilst I’mrecording. However, some of the tripods provided have different sizes, meaning that for most of my footage Ihave had to film with the camcorder in my hands, in which I have tried to stay as still as possible in some cases.In other cases, there is quite a bit of movement, but through looking at music videos I have noticed that not allof them are incredibly still.
The camcorder is one of the most important pieces of equipment for the A2 Media Task, as I am able to filmfootage of my music video on it and by zooming in and out, it can give me different shots to work with whenputting the music video together. Sadly, the camcorder used is not the best quality camera, but hopefully Iintend to make it look professional as possible through the usage of the codes & conventions.
The Apple Mac laptop, is absolutely crucial as I need it to edit the music video on ‘Final Cut Express’ and also toedit my images on ‘Adobe Photoshop CS3’. I am quite familiar with ‘Final Cut Express’, although I intend onexperimenting with the sources on the program so that I can learn from them, so that I am able to use theprogram confidently in the future.
The voice recorder is quite essential, as I will be able to record my diegetic and non-diegetic sounds on there formy music video. I will also be able to record my voice on the voice recorder when using presentations or toexplain things in further detail. I haven’t used the voice recorder before, so it’s going to be interesting whenusing.
