Q4. How did you use media technologies in the
Construction, Research and Planning and
PLANNING AND RESEARCH
O In my planning and research stage I used a number of software programs, internet websites and social
networking sites. These included the like of Google search engine, IMBD, The BBFC website, Soundcloud,
Facebook, Whatsapp, YouTube, Wordpress, Microsoft Office (Presentation, Excel and Word), Slideshare, and
O When I conducted research for film trailers in my genre (Horror), I done this via the Internet in the form of
websites such as IMDB and YouTube. I conducted my researching using a iPhone, Apple iMac and a Acer Laptop.
I accessed these websites by using the search engine Google. I chose three film trailers that I would later analyse,
The Human Centipede 2, Saw 6 and Smiley.
Wordpress Blog – Planning
O I used the Wordpress blog in my project which allowed me to embed videos,
presentations, sound files and maps unto the page.
O The blog page acted as a diary (an organised diary) of the events and any obstacles I
faced in the process of my campaign.
O Audience research and feedback in relation to my own work could also be displayed in
various ways on the Wordpress blog. Other planning documents could also be displayed
on the Wordpress blog, as well as paper work before photo shoots and filming i.e..
Consent form, script, Risk assessment.
Microsoft Office – Planning and
O I used Microsoft Presentation to draw conclusion to the information I had collected in
my research. I used Excel to display figures, from my audience feedback in graphs on my
Wordpress blog. I would upload them on Slideshare before embedding them unto the
Glogster ( Focus Group Feedback)
Planning and Research
O I used Glogster to present my Feedback from my Focus Group,
Wordpress did not allow me to embed it straight unto
Wordpress as an interactive presentation, This is why I
created a hyperlink which allowed people to access my glog
via my Wordpress blog.
O In my construction stage, I used a camera (equipped with it’s accessories) which I would later upload unto Final Cut Pro to
edit. I also use iMovie on the iMac and my iPhone when editing my footage.
O I also use iMovie on the iMac and my iPhone when editing my footage.
In my evaluation I would use;
O Adobe Photoshop
O Microsoft Office
Facebook and Whatsapp would allow me to directly contact any people I wanted feedback
from for my work, these social networking sites also allowed me to get opinions of my work
from people I didn’t know. YouTube was similar in that I could post my video up and get
feedback from anyone who came across it. I used Microsoft presentation which I uploaded
unto slideshare before embedding it on my blog, to discuss my evaluation questions.
