What have you learnt about technologies
from the process of constructing this
One of the main technologies I used throughout year, and that helped me with my
coursework, is Wix.com.
It is a website that allowed me to create my own blog from scratch and gave me the
freedom to be as creative as I liked. I could design the colours, background, layout and
content so my blog reflected me and the genre I was presenting.
However, I did encounter a few issues with the website, such as:
• I could not embed a Prezi to one of my blog posts due to the layout – I was restricted to
only being able to put a link to the presentation rather than having the Prezi directly on
the blog post.
• Sometimes, when previewing a post it would look different to the layout that was shown
when creating/editing a post. For example, sometimes the test would appear further away
from an image than what I would have liked to I would have to change the layout to make
it fit the page of the blog post.
However Wix allowed me to upload images, text, videos and links to my blog which helped
with the Research & Planning tasks that I had to do.
Google was an extremely helpful website for me in many ways:
• Research – I could look up any information that I needed and I could find reliable
sources that could help me with my work. I was able to research different genres
and find which one I like best and I could then find lots of films associated with
that chosen genre.
• Images – I could find posters and photos that helped me when creating my
opening sequence as I was able to see which fonts and colours are typically used
and then transfer that information to my own work.
• Programs - Through Google I could access different programs such as Prezi and
Vimeo which not only helped me gain information and research for my tasks but
also helped me when I needed to upload presentations or videos to my blog.
I used YouTube to search for clips from films that I needed to watch. I could
view other opening sequences to help with my research when creating my
I could also search for sound effects e.g. a doorbell, that I used in my
Moreover, I used YouTube to upload videos that I wanted on my blog so it
would be easier to transfer them onto a post.
I also used it to search for tutorials on how to use a certain software or how
to use tools on a program.
MacBook / iPhone
My MacBook and iPhone 6 were used very frequently throughout the course
and I thought I should mention them as they were both very reliable. My
laptop aided me when creating blog posts because I could do so very quickly
and uploading images and videos was easy and allowed me to add a visual
aid to my posts.
My phone was helpful at certain times throughout the year as I could use it if
I needed to communicate with my actors, peers and teacher as I was able to
text and email to make sure I was on track/schedule when filming and
creating my blog.
Adobe Premier Pro
Premier Pro was the program that I used to edit my opening sequence. I was able to
grasp how to use it very quickly and I didn’t encounter any issues when using it.
I learnt how to:
• Import video clips and sound files
• Cut/crop a video file
• Add transitions
• Create a title and overlay it onto a video clip
• Adjust the volume and speed of clips
• Scale a video to fit the frame
• Add a filter to a clips
Video Copilot / After Effects
This is a website where I could access templates and tutorials for special effect, titles
I used it to get tutorials for creating production titles as I could see a step by step
video on how to make the title. All I had to do was download the project file and
follow the tutorial.
Once I had chosen the template I wanted and downloaded it, I was transferred to
Adobe After Effects where I could physically make the titles.
At first I found the program a little hard to use as I had never had any experience
with it before however, I managed to create production titles with addition of my
own ideas and colour after some time figuring out the specific tools that I needed to
I used a DSLR camera to film my opening sequence as it is good quality and since I
study Photography I already knew the majority of the tools and settings on the
camera so I found it easy to use.
However something I was not familiar with using was a tripod, but I found it
relatively easy to put up and fold away and I learnt how to stabilise the camera
and use the lever to turn the camera around.
I also used a microphone for the first time when shooting my opening sequence.
This was easy to use and was just an added extra to improve the sound quality of
my video clips.
