Microphone While filming we didn't use any microphones attached to the camera, this was because there was only a few case were the characters actually spoke as most of our sound was going to be voice over. We used the zoom audio recorder to recorded Jennifer's voice over through out the footage, connecting it with a microphone and covering the microphone with a screen in order to clear sound. We also used the zoom audio recorder to emphasis the sound of Jennifer when she falls and hits the ground, by doing this we were hoping it made the scene more comical.
Camera While filming we first used the DV7, the picture quality was one of which we was pleased with and the sound was a good enough quality to what we aimed to achieve. After filming with DV7 we found that there would be scenes we need to reshoot so we had to use the DV3, we while filming the quality seemed just as good but when we edited our footage together we soon realised the camera shot differently to each other and therefore creating different dimensions and quality within our footage.
Editing To edit out footage we used Premiere Elements, none of my group had experience with this software and it we new for all of us. We briefly practiced using this device at first and we found it fairly easy to use. However when it came around to editing we soon realised it was harder then we though. we had trouble uploading our footage as the software kept freezing but over all we soon got the hang of things and used different effects on it. We used a speed ramp in order to create a fast motion effect, we changed edited the contrast to try and even out the lighting effects and used various other transitions for titles.
Lighting While filming we decided using a fill light in order to lighten areas we were filming as we found they were dark, we also used a reflector to try to get the best quality of lighting possible, some areas you can see the good quality of this wear as other areas the lighting was perhaps not as good as we wished it would have been.
