Evaluation question 7
Looking back at your preliminary task, what have we learnt
from our progression, for it to full product?
S In our preliminary task we did not use music as if would not link
in with the short film. However for our final film we used a soft
tone type of song, the sound that we had coming through on our
film was very relax-full. We chooses that type of music as we did
an advert for out piece and the music we used linked in well, the
sounds was very smooth as it was background music. This would
then give the audience the feeling that it is a nice peaceful school,
they the ending of the film would be hard to predict and they
would also be interested to what is going to happen. This effect
was done through the use of sound.
S I have learnt how to create credits for the number of different films we
have done, throughout the course. In the preliminary task there was only
one shot so there for credits one had to come at the end, so this made
much easier for me to do, as in our film task there was a number of
different shots so therefore we had to apply credits throughout the film,
this was much harder compared to the preliminary task, as we had to add
the credits by constantly editing the film. However through this task being
harder I feel like I have a good understanding and my skills have
improved when editing credits in to films and pictures.
S when we did our preliminary task we did not choose to use
camera effects as we felt that it would not have been successful, as
it was quite a basic film that we produced. In our final piece we
used camera effects as we felt this film was suitable for it also, we
felt it would improve our piece. As our film was an advert we shot
someone watching it this then would give the audience the
impression that he was up to no good. It also comes off well as we
film part of the film live then after filming someone watching the
footage, this then gives our piece a special camera effect.
S I feel like my editing in my preliminary task was good as when
we edited the video I linked two shots together linking them into
one. Also when filming the character who was plotting to kill
‘Mr wilkinson’ it was important that we filmed his hands and
back of his head, as when editing we could link the two shots
together giving which would give off a mysterious effect, this
would also give us a verity of different shots throughout are film.
This would then relate well with the audience as they would not
see his face.
