Progression from Preliminary Task to Final Piece !
!
Our preliminary task was a starting point that gave us an overview of our level of working
and knowledge of cinematography at the time. After evaluating our preliminary task it gave
me the opportunity to reflect on things that went well and things that could be improved.
Improving aspects of my ability was something that allowed our final piece to be the best
standard it could possibly be.!
!
!
Whilst filming for our final piece ‘Pastures New’ I noticed a significant
increase in my cinematography skills. My knowledge of camera
angles and shots had become better, and through each stage I saw
our clips increasing in quality.!
!
!
!
!
Our first preliminary was not an effective
horror sequence, as the camera angles
were not used in such a way that we could
frighten the audience. However this first task
gave me the chance to explore the camera
and work out which angles, and distances
worked better.!
!
So to avoid overusing certain shots/angles
like we did in the preliminary (Such as over
the shoulder and mid shots).We decided to vary our angles to create a more diverse piece.
This would also demonstrate our knowledge of cinematography. !
!
!
The first few drafts we made had some slight issues. We found that the narrative was too
complicated and hard to understand at times. Also the characters costumes changed more
than once throughout the sequence, meaning we lacked in continuity. !
To solve this we went out and re-filmed a lot of the sequence again and realised that we
were trying to put too much narrative into such a short space of time.!
!
!
In our final piece, the clips all had their own layered soundtrack appropriate to the scene
allowing our film to have the greatest possible effect on our audience. !
We also used more props, such as knives and
mobile phones to give it more of a modern
domestic feel, rather than our preliminary
where only photos were used. Furthermore
with Pastures New, we focused closely on our
use of lighting, particularly with the beginning
scene where Angus is using a handheld
camera to record his message to Scarlett. In
this scene we used a phones flashlight on the
side of Angus’ face to give it more of a sinister
feeling.!
!
If we compare our Final film with our preliminary, our preliminary was filmed in a single day
with only one setting and limited (or no) , costumes or props. For our final piece we had a
longer period of time to plan and gather the costumes and props that we needed. We also
had more freedom when it came to choosing the location for our filming.!
