Q4 final final

  1. 1. How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages? M.Raja
  2. 2. Other research methods Cd’s, Digipack: I looked at physical examples of Cd covers for a better understanding of digipaks. Word, presenting: I used word for basic presenting of my research Powerpoint, Presenting: This was the most used software to present my research Slideshare: This software allowed me to embed powerpoint presentations onto Webs Scribd: This software allowed me to embed word documents onto Webs
  3. 3. We began planning our actual music video according to the research we gathered. It was easy to plan because we had a lot of examples and real media to work with, and using a range of media technologies we managed to set out our plan in a more easy to understand style.
  4. 4. Word allowed me to quickly type up instructions and ideas for the music video. I also used words to type up the song lyrics to help us plan the narrative with the lyrics. After we had to upload this word document to Scribd. This allowed us to embed the file onto Webs.
  5. 5. Powerpoint Powerpoint was more useful as it allowed me to be more visual and creative. Planning was easier on Powerpoint as there were more effects, animations, media features etc. Also on Powerpoint I was able to demonstrate my results and audience feedback in a more visual manner using pie charts and other graphics. I could also upload the powerpoint on Slideshre so that it generates an embed code which I can use to embed it onto Webs.
  6. 6. <iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/ embed/9PzyiDtBw4U?fe ature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe > The embed code allowed us to easily place into Webs
  7. 7. Photoshop I also used Photoshop for our draft Print tasks. Photoshop is a photo editing software that allowed me to manipulate and enhance images for my print task. I was able to play about with the images and manipulate them. This helped me to understand how to design and create a professional looking Cd cover and magazine cover.
  8. 8. Construction
  9. 9. We used a Canon Legria to film our music video. I learnt how to use the functions of the camera correctly and also how to set up the tripod. The tripod allowed to me take smooth steady shots and also allowed me to pan more smoothly. I learnt how to set up the camera to the tripod correctly and how to use the other features of the tripod. The mac was used for storage of all our video footages and for all the other software we used. I learnt how to connect the camera on to the computer in order to transfer files. I used Final Cut to lay out the video footages onto one canvas whereby I could rearrange, edit and crop certain footage. Final Cut allowed us to create our music video easily because I used Photoshop to create the final print task and through using it I learnt many new skills like colour manipulation. I also used my mobile phone to communicate with my group and take pictures for reference. The pictures used for my digi pack and magazine advert were taken using my 8 mega pixel camera phone.
  10. 10. Evaluation
  11. 11. One of the criteria on the mark scheme says that candidates should use a range of media technology when answering the evaluation questions. Due to this I decided to use various different media technology. I thought by using different software and media technology this would showcase my ability to use a range of media.
  12. 12. Q1 For question 1, I decided to use Microsoft Word so that I could get all my ideas down and have it in an essay form, I thought this would allow me to demonstrate my ability to write clearly and and use Word effectively. Afterwards I realised that this was a plain way to present and a bit boring. Thus I decided afterwards that I would get someone to read it out. I used the mac’s internal voice recorder, this way I could use the audio file and put it into iMovie. Using this software I was able to add background music and present so that people can hear the essay rather than reading it themselves.
  13. 13. Q2 For question 2, I decided to use Prezi as this would allow me to clearly and easily present my point and I could easily show similarities and differences between the print tasks and the music video without having to go back and forth between slides. The animations on prezi are smooth and interactive. Through this course I have learnt how to use Prezi and I have realised that Prezi is popular and many businesses and companies use it to demonstrates their point in a clear and simple manner.
  14. 14. Q3 For question 3, I decided to make a video using iMovie. This method demonstrates that I can use a range of media technology. Using the audio recorder I recorded a voiceover to narrate my audience feedback. I then used iMovie to put pictures, music and the voice over together in an informative and entertaining video. I used transitions to make the video more smooth and entertaining. I placed all the required footages here so that I could easily cut and edit before placing them into the timeline
  15. 15. Q4 For question 4, I decided to use Microsoft Powerpoint. Powerpoint is the easiest and most quickest way to present visually. I already know how to use Powerpoint because it is a popular software and I use it a lot when it comes to presenting. However through using it a lot in media I learnt how to use new features for example the background removal for pictures.
