  1. 1. Skills.<br />Prodigy: Omen, Music video<br />
  2. 2. Programmes.<br />I used Photoshop before because I take graphic design. This means that I was familiar with the software. Therefore I thought that creating the ancillary tasks was quite easy.<br />I also used Final cut express, it took me a while to get used to this programme because I had never used it before.<br />I had help with the staff and the person that was in my group because they had experience with using a similar software.<br />We had tutorials on the software we were using so it was easy to figure out how to use it.<br />
  3. 3. How We Used The Software.<br />We used Photoshop to change the brightness, pixel levels and size of our photos that we were going to use.<br />I used InDesign to create the layout of our CD Cover and magazine advertisement.<br />The main programme we used was final cut express, we used this to edit the footage we had to make the video.<br />We used the software in this way because it makes the finished products look more realistic and professional and I think that is a key ingredient for products like these to survive in the music industry.<br />
  4. 4. Cameras.<br />We used Digital cameras to set our location and ancillary tasks.<br />The cameras we used for this were Panasonic lumix’s.<br />These cameras were easy to use and took great pictures, we could set the settings on anti-shake and it would capture someone moving very fast. E.g. The inside of our CD cover shows this.<br />We also used Video cameras.<br />The video cameras were not as good a model as the lumix’s but I thought that they were quite easy to use and therefore we managed to record our film no problem.<br />
  5. 5. Websites Used.<br /> This website is full of free fonts you can use for your work.<br />We used some of these fonts for our ancillary tasks.<br /> On this website there are Photoshop brushes that can be used for work use only.<br />I downloaded a set of grunge brushes to use on our ancillary tasks.<br />
  6. 6. Blogger<br />We started researching into ways of editing. We looked at A coronation street advert where Tony’s head is moving very fast (fast editing).<br />We posted videos like this on blogger where we could view them all on the same page.<br />I also found images which we found can be easily posted onto blogger aswell.<br />I think that blogger is a good way to show our coursework because it can be neatly sorted and more people can view it.<br />
  7. 7. Blogger cont...<br />I think that blogger was useful for our planning because we could set out polls, comment boxes and video bars for people to view and leave what they thought about it.<br />It was useful for research because we could place it all together so it would look neat and we could find it easily if we wished to refer back to it.<br />
  8. 8. Summing up...<br />I thought that I used certain skills well like:<br />Editing on Final cut express<br />Managing and manipulating photos on Photoshop<br />Using YouTube and Blogger<br />Creating layouts on InDesign. <br />Taking good location stills and pictures for our ancillary tasks.<br />And finally actually filming our work.<br />
