How did you use mediatechnologies in the construction of research planning and evaluation?
Photo shopI used photo shop for both of my ancillary products and some of the text slides in my trailer. I had already had some experience with photo shop from AS however I wanted to improve on these skills for my ancillary products I therefore watched you tube tutorials and asked friends who had more experience in it. Having done this I was able to remove an image from its background to put it on a plain white one and how to make an image brighter. having learnt these skills I think I managed to create a professional and polished ancillary products.
Final cutFinal cut was used for my trailer it enabled me to put together my clips in an order which revealed part of what my film was about in a conventional way. By learning how to use the different told such as the blade tool to cut longer peaces of film. The colour corrector tool, to make a more sombre atmosphere to the break up scene and a lighter brighter atmosphere to those which are seen as moor positive. As well as been able to layer number of pieces of audio and change levels to blend them in more.
CeltexCeltex was used to create the script for the trailer. This proved useful when planning out the scenes for the story bored and which scenes could be filmed on the same day. It was also useful for my actors as they could have a look over the script before filming and know there lines rather than making it up on the spot. Although I originally found using celtex challenging i quickly came touse it to create a script that made my filming run more efficiently.
Social networkingI used facebook in order to get feedback on my final products, this proved a great way of doing this because I had very little time to get my audience feed back and my target audience could message it me almost straight away. It also meant that I could ask more people than I would have been able to in person.
I phone 4sI Used my I phone to record videos for my audience feedback this proved a really great way on collecting some of my audience research as I could easily summarise the reaction. This could then bedirectly uploaded to you tube via the app and put on my blog all from my phone. Thiswas really efficient and easy as there is a microphone on the recorder . I also used myphone to record the voiceover to my trailer. Had I realised it would have been this easy I would have used it fro my audience research.
Youtube You tube was obviously useful foranalysing videos as I can easily embedvideos into my blog. This was fairly easy to do. I also have a youtube app on my phone which made it simple to upload feed back videos
WordleI hadnt used wordle but before but I liked the idea of presenting my conventions in image form it was really easy to use but really effective and clear to see rather than looking at a number of blog posts.
Nikon DSLR camera and 50 mm lensI has used a DSLR camera before briefly to take pictures for my as music magazine however this was the first time I had recorded using one this proved very challenging changing the shutter speed and ISO however once I had been give guidance I think I managed really well. The 50 mm lens was also really effective and made it look really professional and conventional.
Slide ShareI usedslide share for the research, for presenting myconventions of magazines. planning, by insertinggraphs i summarised the results of my audience feedback and evaluation stages of my project I found ita good way of presenting my information it wasbasic and easy to embed into my blog.
