TASK 4 HOW DID YOU USE NEW MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES IN THECONSTRUCTION AND RESEARCH, PLANNING AND EVALUATION STAGES
WHAT IS NEW MEDIA?• New media is basically access to digital content like the internet or video games that can be used at time in any place on any digital device like a computer or a phone. During my work there where a number of new media devices that I used. New media at work
WIX• When I finished my work I need somewhere to store everything I did and in comes wix. Wix is a internet website where you can create you own web page that can be viewed by anyone, this website let me write text, place pictures and upload YouTube videos things that I had to do for my work. All of my final work and product has been placed onto wix. Wix can be about anything you want it do which made it useful.
PREZI• Sometime wix by itself was boring so in came prezi a website that lets you create presentations in fun and interesting ways. The reason that I used prezi was solely because looking at pages of pages of block text is just boring using prezi lets me add my own style to my work by having different backgrounds placing text and pictures and having a pathway to move around it. And after I finished my prezi all I had to do to put it on my wix was get the HTML embed it into my wix through its own HTML on the website.
IMOVIES• When I had finish recording my video the next step was to edit the clips that I had to do this I used iMovie’s. iMovie is a piece of software that can be used to editing film. Using iMovie I was able to the clips I had recorded and turn them into a film that I could add and trim parts that I record. Due to the fact that this wasn’t the first time that I have used iMovie I could already use it. I spend a couple of weeks editing this was needed to make sure that I got the editing as good as it could be. How iMovie looks when you edit a film
GREEN SCREEN• During my research there was a point where we had to test out green screen. Green screen is a piece of software that let you place a new image in the background of the clip of recorded in front of the green screen to make it look like someone is I a new area. When it came time of me to test the green screen I sat in front of it and lip singed a song that lasted 10 seconds after this I got the recording and placed a image of a recording studio where the green screen was. Finally I watched the video back to see myself singing inside a recording studio. That was a basic thing you can do in green screen there are a lot more complex things you can do that I didn’t go into as I didn’t want to use green screen in my final video.
PHOTOSHOP• After I finished by filming and editing it was time to move on to my ancillary tasks and to do I used Photoshop. Photoshop is a software that allows for a large range of photo editing and can be used to change a picture into something completely different. The first thing I needed to do was get some pictures and once I did this I could put them onto Photoshop. From here I could edit the pictures into my ancillary tasks by adding text, images, changing colours or fading part out. When using Photoshop this year I was able to develop the skills that I already had on this software through playing around with my images. Once I had finished adding or taking away parts to my pictures the final thing that I used Photoshop for was change the layout that I had so that in my case it would look like a real CD album cover
OTHER TECHNOLOGY USEDCamera- To film video I had to use a camera. Whenfilming I used the camera I a number of different waysfrom placing it on tripod to holding it in my hand eachpart was different depending on how I wanted to film thatpart of my film.Computer- This was the thing that I used the most aseverything I did from wix to Photoshop was on a computerit is the most important piece of equipment that I had towork with.The internet- I used this a lot when doing my work and oneimportant to most things that I did with my work and welleveryone should know what the internet is right?
