What have you learnt about
technologies from the process
of constructing this product?
Whilst filming we had to refer back to a range of different
technologies that we had used and learnt when creating our
preliminary task. A key aspect was editing as this was the
first task we had to complete and edit for ourselves
Learnt how to use the
editing software, Adobe
Used this throughout our
media product along with
iMovie that was later on
Both iMovie and Adobe Premiere Pro, helped us gain a high
standard piece of work. We were able to incorporate digitial
green screens using iMovie which none of us had done before.
We were also able to add special effects, such as the smoke for
the teleporting effect.
A Canon 700D is what we used for filming our main product, filming in
London and at the house. Our teacher gave us a tutorial which i filmed
and have included on my blog before we used it.
The tutorial showed us how to focus the
lens, create the correct distance, set the
settings accordingly and to correct the lighting.
Not only did we use the camera, we also took advantage of our
Iphone 6's. On the Iphone there is a camera setting for creating
a time lapse. We used this when we created out Tower Bridge
We had to use phone tripods so that the
phone stood in the same position without
Connected to the camera were two pieces of
equipment, the Rode microphone and a tripod.
I did some further research about the Rode
microphone before using it when filming. We
used the Rode Video Mic that was designed for
on the go film producers.
The tripod was very useful as you can alter the
height and rotate the camera smoothly.
The tripod helped us gain different camera
shots. These include, high angle, panning,
close up and medium shots.
When representing my work i was able to incorporate a vairety of webtools
onto my blog. I felt that it made my work more effective and was assembled
in a way that was appealing and creative. This allowed me to present my
research in different ways including, animated presentations, powerpoints,
booklets, flash cards, mind maps, audio and videos.
Exam Time/ Go Conqr
YouTube was a necessity as it allowed me to upload pieces
of work I had edited using Adobe Premiere Pro or iMovie,
and then embed onto my blog to share. As well as this I was
able to watch videos and other opening title sequences for
Blogger was the main resource we used to publish all of our
filming, presentations, research and developments.
Being able to embed nearly anything was really useful to
be able to do. It allowed me to store all of my work in one
place where my teacher and anyone else to see
