Question 6: What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? By Shope Adejare
Sony JVC CameraWe filmed our openingsequence using this basiccamera but it was okbecause it still managed toachieve all the shots thatwe needed and the editingis what really matters.
TripodWithout the tripodwe wouldn’t be ableto film any of thesteady shots that wefilmed.
Mac We began editing our video using the Mac but because the Mac’s at our school are not fast and efficient enough, it became very time consuming to just edit a few clips. This is when we decided to move on to Sony Vegas (next slide)…
Sony Vegas This is the editing software that we used as we didn’t want to use iMovie because we wouldn’t be able to edit at our homes as none of us had a Mac at home however I have a windows 8 laptop which would allow me to use Sony Vegas Pro.
Cable Ties (not technological but was used) To achieve smooth and steady panning shots when Jack was running, we had to use cable ties to tie the tripod on to a bike and film like that. There is also proof of this shown in my ‘behind the scenes’ post.
Fuji film FinPix S1600 camera (for the location shots) For our location shots we wanted to achieve good clarity in our location shots. With my Fujifilm camera we were able to do this because it is 14 megapixel and has a 30x super wide lens. Along with many other various settings.
