Evaluation 4

  1. 1. HOW DID YOU USE NEW MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES IN THE CONSTRUCTION AND RESEARCH, PLANNING AND EVALUATION STAGES? EVALUATION: QUESTION 4
  2. 2. RESEARCH AND PLANNING Blogger - Blogger has been the one of the most essential tools for my planning stage. It has allowed me to keep track of everything to keep me organized with my schedule. It also enabled me to keep checking back at my story board and shot list. As well as my risk assessment and locations. Blogger is easy to use and accessible from any smart phone so even when I was out filming, I was able to use the internet and get on Blogger to check I was collecting the correct footage. YouTube - YouTube has allowed me to look at other film trailers and take ideas from them to use in my own trailer. For example I've been able to view other documentary films based on sport and note what features are used throughout and what made the trailers successful . I have also been able to look at other A2 Media students trailers, looking at what got the best marks making sure I have met all of the criteria in order for me to achieve a high level overall. I have also been able to research music for my soundtrack well as work out which soundtracks work best Sound cloud- I mostly used sound cloud to find and discover new and copyright free music. This was a helpful site as it was easy to find related genre music, and it even suggested songs based on my recent listening habits. It was also easy to download my chosen tracks onto my mac and then import into my editing software.
  3. 3. Google - This was a key tool in helping me increase my awareness for and knowledge of sport doping. Using Google it was quick and easy to find relevant articles and videos on different aspects of doping, for example the difference between hard drugs and blood doping. Google Images also allowed me to look up lots of information, such as magazine covers, film posters etc. Google has been a massive necessity for me as it has allowed me to do so much of my research which has been necessary for creating my film trailer and the ancillary tasks. Google Maps - As basic as this may be, this is definitely a new media technology which helped me in the research and planning stages. By using Google Maps, I was able to find my way to places like the race track in Marlborough, which I had never been to before. The street view option enabled me to have a close up look at the location to see if it was suitable and safe to get to. Google Maps also acts as a SatNav meaning allowing me to reach my locations such as Swindon link center with ease as I had the app on my phone and it told me where to go. Facebook Messenger - Facebook Messenger played crucial roles in the planning of my film trailer, poster and magazine cover. These two apps allowed me to get hold of any actors who I was using in my project, let them know what times and dates I needed them and allowed me to keep in constant contact with them. This allowed me to stay organised at all times and gave me the opportunity to be able to rearrange.
  4. 4. THE CREATION OF THE FILM TRAILER Camera – The camera was the most necessary and crucial part of creating my film trailer. My canon 700 D camera was perfect for the job as it recorded footage in 1080p HD which was enough to get decent quality filming. I was already well adverse in the workings of my camera as a keen photographer I knew the settings well, the use of manual focus was vital to achieve intresting shifts of focus. As well as this another key feature is its flip screen which was helpful for shots filmed at difficult angles such as looking down or up at my actors, I was able to hold the camera in the right place and flip the screen to clearly see what I was filming make sure I had the right angle which was very useful! I also used a Rode microphone to record a higher quality of sound, however more important than this was the lens hood at the end of my lens as this prevented harsh glare from the sun or inside lights affecting the the footage, however on most occasions the light wasn’t bright enough to of had much of an effect anyway. Tripod - Throughout the filming of my trailer, it would be fair to admit I hardly used a tripod. I used a tripod for all of my footage that I shot with the main protagonist sat in a dark room and some at the swimming event because I wanted these shots to be slick, sharp and professional-looking. However, I decided that for many of the other shots, I wanted them to feel more hand held, as this is a key convention of documentary films. This gave me shots a sense of realism which was my ultimate aim. However I had trouble keeping up with the pace of my cycling shots and therefore tired filming from the back of my mums car while she drove this allowed me to get a smooth tracking shot which I felt was some of my favorite shots in my trailer, as it appears smooth and professional.
  5. 5. Son Vegas Pro - Whilst creating my AS Media Film Opening, I was using iMovie. I was very well adapted to it, knew all of the ins and outs and little tricks to make my media products successful. However, when it came to editing my A2 Film Trailer I knew that imovie would not be sufficient for the effects I wanted to achieve in post production therefore I started using a newer and more professional editing software which was much more advanced. I didn’t know much about the program when I started therefore had a little help to get to learn what I required from someone who had previously used the program. I also spent time watching YouTube tutorials on how to edit clips, add soundtracks, merge clips, speed up clips, slow down clips, add in text etc. This helped me get to grips with this program very quickly so I could get down to editing as quickly as possible. Using Vegas Pro, I was able to edit my film trailer fluidly and make sure all of my timings were correct and in time with my soundtrack which I was able to make sure it rhythmically matched the trailer in terms of clip changes, blackouts and titles. I think it looks a lot more professional when the shots change on the beat of the music. A key tool I used was the colour correction, to adjust the hue in the shot of the protagonist in the dark room. The colour of his face was much too orange but after looked more natural and pale to give him a look of ill-health which I wanted to portray as he had been taking performance enhancing drugs. I figured out also that I could layer shots over the top of other shots, I used this at the end of my trailer as I felt it was creative and unique. Without this program I would not have been able to achieve the professional and sleek trailer I had envisioned therefore I am glad I used this software.
  6. 6. THE CREATION OF THE ANCILLARY TASKS Camera - For my ancillary tasks, I used my Canon 700 D to take my photos. the photo I used for my magazine cover while was taken while filming rugby with Sam in the school grounds, it is a profile image taken outside therefore I had to adjust the ISO to make sure the image had the correct lighting. The lighting had to be perfect to make sure I had a very clear, professional looking photo and I think it was successful. Photoshop- This was a piece of software that was vital for my magazine and poster creation. I was able to edit my images and create exciting digitally manipulated images which is becoming more and more popular convention for posters and magazine covers particularly of the indie genre, as it quickly grabs the audiences attention. This software is difficult to use however I have used it many times before, therefore I knew the tools I required to follow the general conventions of posters and magazine covers. It is also possible to add and rearrange text which makes it ideal.
  7. 7. THE EVALUATION STAGE PowerPoint - Using PowerPoint was a way of using different technologies on my blog instead of just having lots of text, different uses of media make my blog more visually appealing and easy to navigate. PowerPoint allows people to easily create professional looking presentations. It has a very basic, simple format and makes it easy for anyone to use. By using it in my evaluation, it has helped me expand my presentation abilities and has allowed me to showcase my evaluation in a sophisticated and organized way. Blogger - By doing my evaluation using Blogger, I have again been able to keep to stay organised and on track. It also allows be to edit all of my work easily, with the use of spell check, which easily allows me to adjust mistakes. I have been able to embed links and YouTube videos onto my blog to make it easier for examiners to use and know what I am talking about when referring to different film trailers without them having to search for the trailer themselves. I have also been able to add additional information where needed without making my work untidy. Keeping my blog was easy and fun and allows me to keep all my course work in one place. YouTube - YouTube allowed me to find examples of comparisons of trailers with features I had been discussing in the question. For example, if I was to talk about how my film trailer used a very powerful soundtrack with lots of suspense and build and I wanted to show an example of another trailer which used the same technique, I could search up the trailer for and post the link and this easily shows the examiner what I am talking about.
