We used Rachel’s Apple Macbook to create our media products. This was useful becauseit allowed us to work in any place at any time. My Mac experience from last year made theconstruction of my A2 media products much easier.
This is the HD camera we used to film all of our footage for our music video and take photos.
I created a blog account using ‘Blogger’ to post all of my research and planning, as well as my final video and ancillary tasks.
I used ‘Microsoft Powerpoint’ to create my presentations and then uploaded them to ‘Slideshare’, before embedding the link on my blog.
We used ‘iMovie’ to edit our video. This was really easy to use and we were able toexperiment with various transitions, titles and effects to make our video more effectiveand appealing to our target audience.
I used ‘Adobe Photoshop’ to create my ancillary poster and albumcover. It includes many tools which I used to make my media products more effective.
After creating an account, I uploaded my photos to ‘Photobucket’ so that I could present them on my blog by embedding the link.
Similarly, I used ‘Flickr’ to upload my ancillaries so I could add notes to them about how my products link well together.
We uploaded our rough cuts and our final video to ‘Youtube’ in order in to post it on our blogs.
I used ‘Quicktime’ to take a screen recording of me using iMovie todemonstrate some of the skills I learnt when using the program (editing bluetones). I found ‘Quicktime’ very easy to use and it successfully shows how Imanaged to use various tools within iMovie.
I found the internet extremely useful when it came to researching, as I was able to find out a huge amount of relevant and interesting information. By searching “fonts” in ‘Google’, I found the website ‘Dafont’. This allowed me tofind any font I needed which helped me to create visually attractive ancillaries.
In the evaluation process, I uploaded my video to various social networking sitessuch as ‘Facebook’ and ‘Twitter’ to access my target audience directly and ask for their response.
