Picture camera

This is the camera in which we used to take pictures when showing our thought processes when creating our A2 project. In using this camera it made it easy to upload photos and the quality of each photo was up to standard.

Video camera

This is the video camera we used for recording our short film, it was easily transportable and was of high enough quality, i felt it was effective and easy to use. Uploading our footage was easy, however if we had used a higher quality camera we may have been able to reduce the glare from some of the lights within our film, however i feel this didn't affect our overall film too greatly.

This is me and Taylor's evaluation of our 5 minute A2 film named "The Raincoat Killer". Within our evaluation we have answered 4 questions, analyzing the technical aspects of our film and the process of creating it. We then recorded our evaluation and will upload it so we can then play it back. Our evaluation has helped us summarize the good points of our film and the areas that need to be improved on. We also reflected on our research and planning stage and by doing this we can identify any problematic areas and any wrong turns we may have made which later have developed into recognizable mistakes, e.g. choosing genre or plot perhaps.

Interaction and feedback

This is a print screen of some of the feedback We received for our A2 project, (short film). We uploaded our film onto the internet (Facebook) and this allowed friends etc to view it and say what they like or dislike about our film. By interacting with our target audience it allows us to get a better idea of what certain conventions to include in our film that worked well. And what areas may have not been so effective. Ultimately we must know what some of our audience think about our film as it is purposely aimed at them and by gaining specific feedback we can then tweak certain elements where neccessary.

This is a document created by me and taylor, in which we planned the 10 shots we will include within our storyboard, which we would then be presenting to the class. We were also aware we needed to use shots that could tell a story, and were easy to explain in a single caption. however we did not want to reveal too much of the story-line. by planning our shots it also saved time as we knew exactly what and where we need to go and what type of shot we will be using in each and every shot.
