4. how did you use new media

  1. 1. 4. How did you use newmedia technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?
  2. 2. When planning our soap trailer we knew we would have to do lots ofresearch in order to make sure we all new the codes and conventions ofsoaps.  You tube played an important part of our research as we used it to watch trailers of different soaps including Hollyoaks, eastenders, corronation street etc. This allowed us to gain ideas of what we could include in our trailers. We also used YouTube to watch some previous soap trailers made by pupils from different schools. This helped us in seeing what works and what doesn’t
  3. 3. Wordpress is a free and easy to use blogging website which is wear weblogged about our soap Holloway Halls.In WordPress you can embed videos,powerpoints etc. For example thisevaluative question has been createdon powerpoint and then improted intoslideshare in order to be put on theblog.WordPress also allowed my group to get feedback from ourteacher, which made it easier to improve on our posts. We couldalso receive feedback from others for example in our audiencefeedback on the first draft.This helped us to make improvements toour trailer.
  4. 4. We used Photo Plus to created our print work, which included a magazinecover and an advertising poster.We also created our e4 banner here, which we used in our trailer and ourposter. PhotoPlus allowed us to create layers on which we could edit differentaspects. Here are the items we created on PhotoPlus:
  5. 5. We used a programme called Adobe Premiere Elements. This iswhere we created our trailer. Premiere allowed me to edit ourfootage and also music. It allowed transitions between footageand effects to be put on footage, For example we darkened theparty scene footage to make it seem more realistic in being atnight as when we shot it, it was during the day.Using premiere made it easy to be able to film lots of differentfootage and then be able to put it together in a smooth way,making cuts where needed. This was also important in our musicas the track we used was 4 minutes long and our trailer was only1 minute long so we had to cut the music right down whilst stillmaking sure it fit in with the footage. The multiple tracklayershelped in being able to edit both footage and music together.Although I found editing quite challenging at times I did reallyenjoy it and I like experimenting with getting the cuts right andputting different footage together.
  6. 6. During my evaluation I have tried to use a variety of technology. Ihave used links to other websites and other posts in my blog,Slideshare has also been used which allows PowerPoints to beembedded into Wordpress. As a group we created a video as ananswer to Question 3. I also used Microsoft word to createanswers which I could then copy into word press and then addimages and links . Vimeo was also used when uploading our finalpiece which was also able to be embed in our blog.We also created a Group pageusing the social network siteFacebook. Here we were able tocommunicate with each otherabout when we are meeting up andany issues or ideas we had.We also created a group message on our phones andhere we were able to have conversations with each otherabout anything we needed to talk about.
