Evaluation task 7

  1. 1. EVALUATION QUESTION 7 Chaya Desborough
  2. 2. Preliminary Task • When I first started Media Studies at AS level, I shot my preliminary task. I had to use various camera techniques and demonstrate them by filming two people having a conversation. There were three basic techniques I had to use. These were: Match on Action, Shot Reverse Shot and the 180 degree rule. • I have progressed a lot from filming my preliminary task to filming my film opening.By filming in different locations I learned continuity is very important and I have learned how to film numerous different camera shots.
  3. 3. Progression from Preliminary Task • In my preliminary task, I used match on action to film Nina walking through the door from behind, then switching to a shot from inside the room to show her walking in. I then panned across to show her sitting down opposite Georgia.
  4. 4. Progression from Preliminary Task • I then used shot reverse shot to show Georgia and Nina having a conversation whilst keeping with the 180 degree rule.
  5. 5. Progression from Preliminary Task • I then filmed Nina looking at the clock, and filmed a close up shot of the clock. • I then filmed a match on action shot of Nina walking out the room.
  6. 6. Film Opening • In my film opening, I used many of the same techniques learned in my preliminary task such as Match on Action, keeping with the 180 degree rule and close up shots. I also used new camera techniques. For example, wide shots, establishing shots, panning shots, tilt ups, over the shoulder shots and point of view shots are just a few!
  7. 7. Film Opening • Here is an Establishing shot, used as the first shot in our film opening. • It is also a wide, high angle shot. • We used this here to let the audience know that the story starts off at a train station, where our protagonist is starting her day travelling to work via train.
  8. 8. Film Opening • Here is a panning shot used to show our protagonist, Samantha walking across the train station to get her ticket. • A technique used in the Devil Wears Prada is to not show the protagonists face for a few shots to create mystery around the character, enticing the audience. We tried to adapt this in our own film opening. It took us a couple of tries to pan across without showing Samantha’s face!
  9. 9. Film Opening • Although you can’t see in this screenshot, here is a tilt up shot which is commonly used in chick flicks to show a characters outfit, we decided to film this so we could keep in with the stereotypical chick flick shots. • Unfortunately, due to the weather it was far too cold for Molly to take off her coat and so we didn’t have a chance to properly show off her outfit, and thus the shot was not as effective as it could have been.
  10. 10. Film Opening • Here, we used a POV shot to show Samantha’s phone, as she receives a text from a coworker. • Due to the lighting outside, we had to adjust the settings on the camera, so that in the reflection you couldn’t see the camera. • We thought the decision to use the latest iphone reinforced the social status of our protagonist and made her more appealing as a potential role model to our target audience.
  11. 11. Film Opening • Here, we used an over the shoulder shot to show Samantha, opening this ‘confidential letter’. • We felt it would be good to use this particular shot as it shows from her angle, exactly what she’s looking at, almost from her point of view. • Furthermore, the fact Samantha is unable to read the full letter before her boss walks in piques the audience’s curiosity and as a result, consequentially makes the audience more likely eager to watch the rest of the film.
