How did you use new mediatechnologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?
PHOTOSHOPPhotoshop was used to produce both the poster and the magazine cover. Iwas familiar with the software before producing my A2 portfolio as I had usedit for my AS and GCSE media studies therefore I was well experienced withusing Photoshop. I also watched a few tutorials on YouTube to develop myknowledge further.
SONY VEGASWe used Sony Vegas to make the whole our trailer which included editing and sound. Ihad never used the software before but group member Jack Cranston was familiarwith it therefore after him teaching me how to use it and watching tutorials it becomemuch simpler.We used different transitions such as fade so that the trailer flowed better from shotto shot. We were also able to edit the colour and make it low key as this was acommon convention of our genre.
WORDLEI presented the conventions of our chosen genre ‘Thriller’ on Wordle as Ifelt it was a more interesting and creative way to present my work. I alsofound it useful to view all the conventions as a list because it allowed meto identify it more easily.
SLIDE SHAREThis is the third time I have used Slide Share in my A2 portfolio as Ifeel it is an effective way to present work. I produced both;‘Audience Theories’ and ‘Conventions of magazine covers’ slideshare show. Slide Share allowed me to upload my power points inan effective and profession manor.
EXCELI found that Excel was the best tool to create bar charts, pie charts andtables to present the questionnaire results. I found it useful becauseyou can clearly compare and spot trends with it visually presented inthis way.
YOUTUBEI set up a YouTube account for my media studies as I was then able toupload our trailer and the commentary I did on the existing trailer ‘PanicRoom’ to then post on my blog.
FACEBOOKWe used Facebook to get feedback from our trailer as well asarranging focus groups so that we had more reliable answers.
NIKON D7000 CAMERAWe used a Nikon D7000 camera to film the footage for our trailer, film ouraudience feedback and take pictures for our ancillary products. Groupmember Jack Cranston owns this piece of equipment and doesPhotography therefore he was able to teach me and Lucy Benet how touse it in an effective way.
ZOOM H4A zoom H4 recorder was used when I did a voiceover for my analysis of thetrailer ‘Panic Room’. I had never used it before but felt it was a morecreative way to analyse an existing product.
