For this question I will be
looking back at my
preliminary task and put it in
contrast with my final
piece, I will show
organisation, research and
production, camera, editin
g and sound.
Organisation is how well you planned ahead of recording and
know exactly what you’re going to do throughout the time of
production. The clips on the left are from our preliminary, as you
can see clothing is changed because the two clips were filmed
on different days and not planned ahead. Where as the final
piece (right) would appear as if it was on the same day, However
we had made sure that clothing would be the same whilst filming.
This made the film a whole lot better because it meant no
amateur mistakes were made.
Camera is having a wider range of shot composition and
have continuity within your film. The shots on the left from our
preliminary shows that most of the time all our shots were
standard mid range shots to show the character, we had no
close ups to help emphasise on characters emotions and
facial expressions. However in our final piece we tried to
implement as many close up as we can to help portray the
Editing is used after filming, it is used to help make the final
piece appear seamless and therefore improving on the
continuity used in filming. In our preliminary the only transition
we used between clips is a fade, this did not help emphasise
the continuity in filming and actually made the film appear
really bad because most clips were separated with a fade.
However in our final piece we had implemented cuts and still
made the film appear as if it was all happening in time.
Sound is a really important factor as it can make the
audience interpret things in different ways all being
dependent on the sound. In our preliminary we had no music
to help portray the different characters and our voices had
hardly any emotion. Whereas the voiceover in ours was really
confident and helped portray the characters lifestyle, in our
voiceover the character mainly spoke as if he didn’t care
about being arrested and was mainly wanting to speak
about how great and celebrity-like his lifestyle was.
