  • Our group was made up of four people; me, Joe, Susan and Ruksana. The tasks were divided up and given to each person, for example Joe and Susan were actors, however we all had equal input into the final outcome. We completed the recording of our prelim task by all staying after school until 4:30pm and we edited the recordings together during lesson time. We completed the task within the time we were given as we had good time management. However due to the time we were given I believe that we might have rushed the filming, but we did the best we could with the time we had, but if we had more time it would have been better. My strength was filming some of the shots that were taken and my weakness was the rushing.
  • To film our prelim task we first planned the sequences. We did this by using a storyboard. The storyboard contained all the shot types and the actions in each shot. Before we wrote down our shots we thought about how we could make it creative. We visualised the shots and then we practiced them to see if they were good. When we all decided what shots we were going to use we wrote them down on the storyboard.
  • To complete our task we had to use a variety of technology. We used a Canon HD camera, a tripod and editing software called Adobe premiere. To set up the camera first of all we had to put the battery in, switch it on, then put the recording tape in. Next, the camera was securely attached to the tripod. The camera was then ready to use safely. When using the editing software it was really complicated as there was loads of different icons to click on. The recording was uploaded and we had to cut the different shots out, then place them in the order that we wanted. When using the camera it was quite hard at first as there was many different buttons to press. Also to get a variety of shots we had to learn how to zoom, pan and tilt the camera.
  • When planning we had to think of the time, people, location and schedule. When shooting we had to think of our surroundings, storyboard and time. When editing we had to think of the time, the overall task and to save it
  • I believe our sequence was successful. This was because we worked well as a group as we all decided on what the outcome would be by all having an input in the planning, shooting and editing. Would have more time to film the shots as we feel that it could have been even better if we didnt rush
  • From this task i have learned that i can work well in a group as i didn't do everything on my own; everyone had roles, gave ideas and helped towards the final outcome. I have learnt how to set up and use a camera to be able to record shots and also i’ve learnt how to edit the recordings. Poor time management skills
  • The editing process is very long as all of the shots have to be cut, viewed and placed into the sequence. Decisions were made as a group when editing. We would decide together whether to use shots of not due to the quality of them. we didn't plan time to complete the editing. My strengths were identifying the poor shots by watching and listening closely, my weakness was getting distracted by my surroundings due to how long it took. Concentrate more

    1. 1. Courtney Peverill Evaluation of the Prelim Task
    2. 2. Who did you work with and how did you manage the tasks between you?  Joe, Susan and Ruksana and myself  Tasks were divided up e.g. Joe and Susan were actors  Equal input into the task as everyone had a say in what happened  Stayed after school until 4:30pm to film  Edited the recordings together  Completed task within the time given  Short time given leaded to us rushing the shots, however we did our best within the time  Strengths: filming some of the shots  Weaknesses: rushing
    3. 3. How did you plan your sequence? What process did you use?  We used a storyboard  It contained all the shot types and actions involved in each individual shot  Thought how we could make it creative  Visualised the shots  Practiced the shots  When the shots were decided they were written down on the storyboard
    4. 4. What technology did you use to complete the task, and how did you use it?  Variety of technology such as: Canon HD camera, tripod, Adobe premiere  Setting up the camera: battery, switch, recording tape  Using the camera was hard at first as there were different buttons to press  To get a variety of shots we had to learn how to zoom, pan and tilt the camera  Setting up the tripod: legs were pulled out the adjust the height and then securely tightened, the camera was attached to the top  Using the software: uploaded the recording, cut the different shots, shots were placed in order
    5. 5. What factors did you have to take into account when planning, shooting and editing?  Planning: time, people, location and schedule  Shooting: location and time  Editing: time, saving and completing
    6. 6. How successful was your sequence?  Very successful  Worked well as a group, no arguments  All had an input in the sequence through planning, shooting and editing  Put together well  To improve we would have liked more time  Felt like we rushed the shots at the end
    7. 7. What have you learnt from completing the task?  I can work well in a group as I didn't do everything on my own  Individual roles, gave ideas, helped towards the final outcome  Know how to set up and use a camera to record shots  Know how to edit recordings on Adobe premiere  Realised that I have poor time management, as we rushed the ending
    8. 8. Post production  The editing process if very long  Shots have to be viewed, cut and placed into the sequence  Decisions were made as a group when editing the shots due to the quality or number or shots  Time wasn’t planned before editing  Strengths: identifying the poor shots  Weaknesses: distraction from the surroundings  Changes: concentrate more
