Our advert is based around the creative media department where the advert will include showing the viewers around the department and showing off the many things that they will be getting involved in. If they enrol on the course, we will also include interviews with staff and students alike that will give their views on the course as a whole along with answering some of our questions. The advert will be around 10-15 minutes long, and will be shortened down or lengthened depending on what we manage to get on the day of recording.
Firstly, we carried out individual research on 2 different promotional videos for 2 colleges which are the following: Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College and Stockport College. Secondly, we did a brain-storm of the ideas for the digital video for the Creative Media BTEC course. Thirdly, I produced a Gantt Chart/Spreadsheet in order to state the milestones that are needed to be reached in order to meet the deadlines specified accordingly to the 2nd Year Plan for Creative Media. Fourthly, I then researched into the understanding of the target audience in relation to the Creative Media digital video. Fifthly, I then constructed a questionnaire on the course itself where I included question’s like `What makes a successful promotional digital video` and `What do you like/dislike about the course`. Sixthly, we did a script for the Creative Media digital video where it states exactly what is going to happen throughout the video. Seventhly, we did storyboards and sketches in which we are still currently in the process of working on the storyboarding where we covered all of the sketches and most of scenery within the Creative Media digital video.
