Strengths Our strengths were we had many ideas for the storyline to start with, and were then able to pick one. Also because we know each other quite well, so we were comfortable working together. We spent a lot of time on ‘genre’ research, so we were able to get key conventions of our chosen genre (horror) included in our sequence. Also we used social networks very well to communicate on what work needed to be done between us. We spent many hours on filming our piece after school; this took a lot of commitment and dedication.
WeaknessesOur main weakness was time keeping, we spent alot of time filming and had very little time to edit, this prevented our editor (Sunraj) from perfecting the editing to the best of his ability. Also we sometimes found it hard to communicate as agroup and found ourselves getting frustrated whenthings went wrong, but in the end we got the work done and resolved things.
Opportunities Unlike most schools we had excellentresources/equipment provided by our schools media department, including high qualityvideo cameras, tripods and apple Mac laptops. This made our work easier as the equipment was of a high standard.
ThreatsWe had limited space when using the lift and this made it harder to do point of view as itwas a small area of space. And also because we were filming in school occasionallycleaners and teachers walked by in-between scenes which meant we had to re do some parts of a scene.
