Question 4

  1. 1. By George Ring
  2. 2.  Technologies were the most common aspect of all of the work I have done through G324. Without the advanced technologies which we use today, I would not have been able to create a MusicVideo in the way that I did. Nor would I have been able to complete the Research and Planning stages of my project.There was a range of different technologies which I used, including Hardware, Software and Online technology.  All of these pieces of technology worked hand in hand in my work, during the planning and the creating of my video. For example, I usedYouTube to publish the work which I filmed on a Camera and edited on a Software.
  3. 3.  I decided to stick to my own personal camera, a Nikon D3200 as I have already used it over the past two years. I have owned this camera since G321, and have been able to learn a range of different features to do with it. I feel like it was easier to do this as appose to changing a camera and having to learn it all over again.  I was not restricted to when I could film as the camera was my personal one and enabled me to use it both at College and at home.  This camera is capable of filming in HD, which means that the quality is of the highest standard forYouTube. I use this camera a lot in Photography and therefore I am able to use it to produce high quality images for my Ancillary Tasks (my poster and digipak).
  4. 4.  I have been using Apple iMacs for over 5 years now and I know how to use all of the software on them. I feel like they are more advanced and it is easy to spread my work across all Apple devices due to them being compatible.  I used an iPad, iMac and also a Macbook Pro when editing my music video and constructing it. It has all the software which I needed and meant that I could do every aspect of my project in one place.  The only problem I had with using these computers was that my computer at college was of an older software version and therefore it did not open some of the files that I needed. As a result of this, I needed to transfer all of my files onto a harddrive.
  5. 5.  In my Production aspect of my work, I used Premier Pro.The reason for this was because I used it last year and I was able to develop my work as I already knew how to use it correctly. During the project, I used features on there such as aWarp Stabliser.This enabled all of my shots to be steady.  I used Premier Pro when completing my lip sync, as I was able to lay the music over the top of the footage and get it almost perfect. As a result of this, it enables me to give the effect that my actor is singing in time with the song.  Indesign was trialled in order to construct my Digipak and single cover. However, I found it too challenging and it did not enable me the creative scope which I needed in order to create one of my choosing. Eventually, I decided to use Photoshop to create my Digipak as I already understood how to use the software to my full advantage.
  6. 6.  YouTube was the site I chose to showcase my finished music video.The reason I chose to upload my work to YouTube and not others was because it is the most visited website of all time, with over 1 billion monthly views. It also enables me to track how my video is performing, and compare it to other music videos using the same song.  Some people came into problem with usingYouTube as artists have published copyright to their song and ban anybody else that attempts to use it. Personally, I managed to upload mine under ‘Educational Purposes’ with minimal hassle.
  7. 7.  Blogger was my biggest platform for both G321 and G324, this is because it is the home for all of the work I have completed over the past two years. By using Blogger, I am able to upload my work, label it so that it is all in one place, and also keep a constant view on what I have done and what is left.  Blogger was the greatest technology I used through both of the years in which I studied Media, this is because I was able to keep organised. All of my work was in the same place, and it all links to my research and planning.
  8. 8.  Since AS media, I have progressed as I have trialled new technologies and also made a video which I didn’t think I was capable of. By using Premier Pro, I geared away from adding non-diegetic sounds and instead using a soundtrack to link to the clips. I am now able to match sound with lip syncing, while I also have a basic knowledge in a new software such as inDesign.  In the future, I wish to extend my knowledge even further and use a range of different Hardware.This will include me recording using separate sound and video recorders and widening my skills in producing different mediums.
