Industry & Professional Codes
Legal – Health & Safety
How might it affect your work negatively?
How did it affect your product positively?
(Planning and research as well as production) In terms of health and safety this did not affect my documentary in any kind of negative way. This is because, I carefully chose the locations I would be filming at and the times I would be filming. Another reason is because, for each location I created a risk assessment sheet outlining any risks there would be when I am filming. For example, for my vox pops I was filming in Ilford town centre and some of the risks were that the equipment could get stolen or lost, someone got knock the equipment over while filming, or it could of rained/snowed while I was filming.
(Planning and research as well as production) This affected my product positively because by creating the risk assessment sheets I was outlining any risks and hazards I would face at my filming locations.
To overcome these risks, I made sure someone I was always with the equipment, I set the equipment up where it could not be knocked over, I checked the weather at all times and I took an umbrella in case it rained unexpectedly.
I created a risk assessment sheet for every time I went out to film in a different location which outlined the different risks and hazards at that specific location and uploaded each of the risk assessment onto my blog. For example, when I went to do my vox pops in Ilford town centre I created a risk assessment sheet for that location and uploaded it onto my blog. You can click on the following link to view the risk assessments for Ilford Town Centre: http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/20 12/01/unit-5-risk-assessment-ilford-
Legal – Copyright
This would have affected my work negatively, if I did not overcome those risks by creating risk assessment sheets or checking the weather whenever I was going out to film. I would have been unaware of any risks/hazards that would have been at the locations I was filming at and this would of increased the risk of the equipment get damaged or somebody getting injured. This did not affect my work in any kind of negative way as I did not break any copyright rules as I had permission for any archive footage and music used in my documentary. I had emailed/telephoned the rightful owners of the archive footage and the music used in my documentary and asked if I could have permission to use it in my documentary. Here is the link to my documentary to view all the archive footage and music used in my documentary:
The positive effect this has had on my work is that I was able to use different types of archive footage and music in my documentary. For example, I had used three different video clips going from old to new as an introduction for one of my interviews which made my documentary more appealing to my target audience. Also because, I had permission to use the music in my documentary I chose a fast paced song which summed up my documentary and went well with what was included in my documentary.

Legal – Data Protection
This did not affect my work in any kind of negative way as I did not say anything bad or something which one on my interviewees or anyone who views my documentary could take as an insult or something offensive. If I had did that, then the BBC could have refused to air my documentary or my target audience may have refused to view my documentary. This had affected my work in a negative way because, when I did my initial contact list I displayed my potential interviews contact details without their permission and I could have got in trouble by being fined or sued.
This had a positive effect on my work because, while I was filming my work and writing up my shooting script I knew that I could not include anything that would offend one on my interviewee’s or any member of my target audience. I could have broken this law by saying something offensive about one of my interviewee’s while I was introducing my interviewee. This had affected my work in a positive way because, I had to display the names of my interviewee’s and crew members for this project on my school blog to school my subject teachers.
Here is the link to my initial contact list:
Legal & Ethical â€“ Race And Ethnicity
http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/2 011/09/internet-research-idea-1bhangra.html (scroll down to the bottom) This did not affect my work in any kind of a negative way as I did not focus on one race or ethnicity throughout my documentary. I also did not comment about race or ethnicity throughout my documentary either. This was because; my documentary was aimed at all ethnicities and races and not just one race and ethnicity.
This did affect my work in a positive way as my vox pops were people from a wide range of different races and ethnicities. I did this because, I could show my target audience that my documentary was not just focusing on one race and ethnicity but it was aimed at all races and ethnicities. Here is a link to my documentary where you can see during my vox pops at the beginning that I have used people from a wide range of different races and ethnicities: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKk dqQCOBlE&feature=player_embedded
Legal & Ethical â€“ Privacy
This did not affect my documentary in any kind of negative way because, I had permission for all my interviews, archive footage, music and vox pops in my documentary. I could have only broken this law if there was someone behind the person while I was filming which there was not so I did not break this law as I took the people I was using for my vox pops to one side so I did not get anybody else in the camera shot or angle.
This affected my documentary in a positive way because, before I filmed each interview I had got permission from the interviewee via telephone/e-mail which insured that I had permission to conduct the interview and film them. In most cases I had to contact the record label to ask if I could have an interview with the person I would have liked to interview and I would have had to arrange a date and time like that. Also when I was filming in a public area/location I had to be careful when I was filming that I did not get anyone that was not meant to be in the shot in it. Here is the link to view all of the e-mails I had sent and received to my
Project Specific - Budget
The budget which I had been given at the start of the project was £5000. This did not affect my project in any kind of negative way because, I did not go over this budget. I had a slight problem as I had just kept under this budget and that could have affected me in a negative way but it didn’t.
interviewees: http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/20 12/01/unit-5-e-mail-print-screens.html This had affected my project in a positive way as this budget was not real as the equipment which I required was provided to me by the school as this was a school project. By that I mean I did not have to pay any location fees, copyright fees etc.
Here is the link to my budget for this project:
Project Specific - Technology
http://jagvirtiwana94.blogspot.co.uk/2 012/01/unit-4-budget.html This did not affect my project in any kind of negative way as I felt the equipment and technology which I used throughout my project was good and I knew how to use the equipment and technology which I had to use.
This had affected my project in a positive way as the equipment which was given to me to film my documentary was very good and I could film different shots with different angles using the equipment given. Also the software which I had used to edit my documentary was good as you could do different things using that software to make the documentary look more professional and appealing to my target audience.
TV Industry Specific – Regulatory and self-regulatory (BBC)
Out of all nine of the BBC ethical codes used I have broken one of the ethical code which is privacy.
TV Industry Specific – Regulatory and
Out of all seven of the OFCOM rules none of them had affected my work in any kind of a negative way as they
I broke this ethical code when I was creating my initial interview contact list for my content research as I displayed my interviewee’s details without having their permission to display the details. I could get fined or sued for breaking this ethical code and my documentary could also not be aired on the BBC because, of this.
All the equipment and technology used throughout this project helped me produce a good quality documentary. The BBC ethical codes have affected my documentary in a positive way because, there were laws which I had to stick to and follow which helped me make a good documentary without leading my target audience on or telling them the wrong information.
The seven OFCOM rules had affected my work in a positive way because, by following them laws which I had to stick
were there to follow which I did and by doing that I did not break any of the laws set by OFCOM.
to it helped me produce a good documentary which informed, educated and entertained my target audience on a whole.
