Evaluation In this section of my work, I will be evaluating the pre-production, production and postproduction sections of the work and my skills throughout it all. I will be looking at five different sections throughout my evaluation. The sections I will be looking at and I will evaluate the sections in pre-production, production and post-production are; Most Successful Aspect/Skill Time Management Actors and Crew Equipment and Booking Budget Least Successful Aspect/Skill

Most Successful Aspect/Skill Pre-Production The most successful aspect and skill during pre-production was the contacts list which I had put together as possible interviewee’s and vox pops for my documentary. I had gotten a wide range of different people for each segment I would have for my documentary. I had different music producers, from experienced and upcoming music producers; I also had music vocalists once again from experienced to upcoming Bhangra music vocalists and I also had a Bhangra expert and an old Bhangra artist. You can view my initial contact list by clicking on this link; http://www.scribd.com/doc/66731628/Contact-List-Bhangra You can view my final contact list by clicking on this link; http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/unit-5-final-contact-list.html Another successful aspect and skill during pre-production was the content research which I did for my chosen topic which was “Bhangra” as this is the topic I knew the most about and I could make a good documentary on and inform, educate and entertain my target audience. This research helped me a lot because, I knew who I should interview for my documentary and what segments I should have in my documentary which would help me make my documentary appeal more to my target audience.

Production The most successful aspect and skill during production for me was filming all my interviews, vox pops and any shots of me which were going to be in my documentary. I thoroughly enjoyed the filming stage because; I knew what shots I was going to film, the angle I would have and who would be my interviewees would be. Apart from re-filming my introduction, I did not need to re-film anything else for my documentary which was good as I got the shot types and angles correct when I was filming my interviewees.

This shot is a two shot being used and the angle is eye level.

Post Production The most successful aspect and skill during post production for me was my editing as I spent a lot of time editing my work and getting rid of jump cuts, adding transitions, adding my graphics into my work because, I had to get my documentary looking the best and professional as I could. I was able to book time during my free periods where I had no lessons to edit my documentary and I was also able to stay back after school to edit, add graphics and transitions to my documentary and I felt this helped me a lot.

Another successful aspect and skill during post production for me was that I took on the feedback which was given to me by my subject teachers and my classmates after watching my rough edit documentary. By taking on the feedback which was given it has made my documentary a whole lot better, I have cut down my interviews perfectly, included cutaways where I needed too, added the correct transitions and most importantly I included clips or footage in my documentary which informs, educates and entertains my target audience.

Time Management Pre-Production During the pre-production stage, my time management was good as I was meeting the deadlines set for me to meet by my subject teachers. By meeting these deadlines it insured that I never fell behind with the work. I also kept contacting my interviewees to find out the final dates and times which would suit us both so I could go and film. This was mostly done through phone calls as I felt this would be quicker and I could get a date and time easily. You can view any e-mails I was required to send by clicking on the following link; http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/unit-5-e-mail-print-screens.html

Production During the production stage my time management was good as I had filmed the majority of my interviewees on the date and time I was given by my interviewee. I had a slight problem has 2 key interviewee’s cancelled and I had to find someone else to interview which I did. This took up a lot of my time as I had to arrange a time and date on a short notice but I ended up filming the interview which went well.

Post Production During the post-production stage I managed my time very well as I spent this time editing my documentary to try and make it look neat, the best of my ability and professional as I could. I also was doing any paperwork which I had not completed or I had to redo due to location change for my vox pops and or interview. I had stayed back late a few times to watch my documentary over and over again and I had asked my subject teachers if they could watch it too, so I could get feedback from them and make any changes I had too.

Actors & Crew Pre-Production I felt that I had the correct interviewees for my documentary as I done a thorough research on who should I should interview for my documentary. I also knew before hand on who would be the presenter, camera man/woman and sound operator for my documentary. It was easy for me to get in touch with them.

Production During the production stage, I had managed to film all my scheduled interviews despite 2 of them getting cancelled last minute, I was able to replace that interview with another

interview which I got good footage from. This took up a lot of my time, which I could have used to edit and re-film footage over again.

Post Production The only person which I needed during post production was a voice over artist which was the presenter and I had already written the script up for the voice over artist which made it easy and saved a lot of time which I used to edit my documentary.

Equipment & Booking Pre-Production During this stage, no equipment was really needed as I was not filming any footage because, the main resource which I needed was the internet and that was working. I had planned out what equipment I would need though during the production and post-production stages. Some of the equipment which I was likely to need was a; Tape DV Camera Tripod Microphone IMac You can view my final treatment which I had done during the pre-production stage and I had included the technical viability section in where I had listed what equipment I would need. You can view that by clicking on the following link; http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/unit-4-bhangra-treatment.html

Production During the production stage I had to book the equipment which I needed which was a DV Camera, tripod, tape and batteries. If I was taking the equipment out over the weekend I had to make sure I took a charger in case the batteries died so I could recharge them. By doing this, it saved me a lot of time and money so I did not have to go out and re-film any vox pops or interviews again because, of this issue.

Post Production

During this stage I was working a mac laptop and because, the laptop was being used by other students in different year groups and classes I was not able to use my laptop whenever I would of liked too so I was able to book out the laptop during a free period of mine or after school so I could edit my documentary which saved me from any problems from using the laptop.

Budget Pre-Production During the pre-production stage I had planned my budget out, which included money for equipment, travel costs, food and drinks for my crew etc. I was given a total of ÂŁ5, 000, 00 and out of that I had a total of ÂŁ1,140.60 left. This was not a real cost, this was just a rough cost because, the equipment was provided by the school but that is how much it would cost me if I had to buy everything myself. You can view my budget by clicking on the following link; http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/unit-4-budget.html

Production During the production stage I stayed within the budget because, I did not have to pay much apart from the travel costs and I was the presenter of the documentary. So I only had to pay the sound and camera operator. I also saved money from when I had to re-film footage because, I did not have to re-film any interviews and the shots which I had to re-film were filmed locally.

Post Production During the post-production stage I felt that I had spent enough for my documentary as I did not have to re-film any interviews which meant I had got the correct information and the shot types and angles which I used were good. I had balanced everything out evenly and I had spread out the interviews so I could edit one interview and get feedback if anything had to be changed or not.

Least Successful Aspect Pre-Production I think the least successful aspect during the pre-production process was arranging my interviews as I was not keeping in regular contact which may have caused my interviewee to forget or not have time in his schedule. If I had kept in regular contact I could have been able to keep up to date with other work and plan ahead.

Production I think the least successful aspect during the production process was filming because; I had to go out and re-film the whole of the introduction again because, I had chosen the wrong location and the shot type choice was wrong. This took up a lot of my time which I could have used to edit.

Post Production I think the least successful aspect during the post-production process was my editing of my documentary because, I felt that despite me spending a lot of time editing my documentary it was not to the best of my ability and it could have been better edited. By that I mean the sound levels are not perfect and I should have watched my documentary over and over again just to make sure it was perfect.
