How did you use media technologies in the construction, research, planning and evaluation stages?
1 Introduction
1.1 Throughout the course of my A2 media studies I have used many different media platforms. Blogger is a media platform which I have used throughout the whole of my A2 media studies creating a blog to record my work as well as making my work easily accessible for my teacher.
1.2 As well as the use of blogger I have also used other media technologies such as web tools to put my work onto, Adobe Photoshop to edit my music video together. All of these media platforms I have used previously at AS media, so I had an idea on how each of these platforms works.
2 Research
2.1 Blogger
2.1.1 Blogger is Google’s free tool for creating blogs. Blogs, short for web-logs, are a form of online journal.

2.2 Prezi
2.2.1 'History of music videos post', a post I created on Prezi which looks at the history of music videos widening my knowledge of the topic.
2.3 YouTube
2.3.1 I used YouTube to watch music videos of the same style genre to analyse them. Taking into consideration Mise en scene, narrative, and editing. I analysed Ed Sheeran's - Give me love.
2.4.1 I have done some independent research into the lyrics of my chosen song, by breaking the song down and looking at the lyrics helps me get a better understanding of the narrative.
