To present documents but mostly PowerPoint's.

A creative way to present my work.

It was successful as it was a varied way of presenting my work. Furthermore, it is easy to use.

I

A better method of filming compared to a HD camera. Also, to gain audience feedback and evaluate our work.

It was successful because it was light to carry compared to carrying a tripod etc. Moreover, it was simple to use.

Using a flip cam was a new experience and i felt that i improved, in a sense that i am more knowledgeable about different ways to record footage.

It was successful because it was easy to use and helped share work onto my blog. However, it was unsuccessful when i had to annotate videos on YouTube and the tools took a while to get used to and you could only write so many words.

I

learnt how to present my work differently and in the future i will explore diverse ways to present my work.

IMac

-

IMac used to do research for tasks given, e.g. Finding a opening sequence to evaluate on YouTube.

It was successful as i could do a lot of research that helped influenced my opening sequence.

I have prior knowledge as a GCSE student (as well as owning one) with using an iMac.

-

A website used to collect research specifically when doing the task, inspiring title sequence.

It was successful as the website had a range of Social Realist films that focused on opening sequences.

-

Throughout the whole of Media AS.

It is an effective and clear way to present my work.

It was successful as it was simple to use. Also, all my work was documented in one place safely. Lastly, it allowed me to be creative as i could present my in different ways e.g. i could link Youtube videos.

I

To gain inspiration for opening sequence

It was successful because BSR make films influenced on real events, so the BBC, a place where you gain news of real events, inspired us.

Panosonic HD Camera

BSR opening sequence

To film our opening sequence. To film wild track.

It was successful as it had excellent image and sound quality. Moreover it was easy to use.

I have prior knowledge using this equipment but i feel in contrast to the last time i used i can control it better.

Memory card was used to store the footage we filmed.

It was successful as the memory card was light and stored our work safely

We have upgraded from tapes to memory cards, so, big improvement as work is stored in a safer place.

It was successful as footage was transferred very quickly to the IMac.

I will be using this to upload footage in the future, from camera to Mac.

To import footage upon.

It was successful as it had multiple uses like being able to use software, document work and also transfer work.

I have prior knowledge as a GCSE student (as well as owning one) with using an iMac.

To create graphics

It was very successful! It was like fireworks but better because you could move graphics to you specification.

This software is knew to me. It has improved my graphic making skills as it allows you more to work with e.g. position of graphic. Also, in the future it will allow me to become more creative with graphics.

DaFont

BSR Opening sequence graphics

Graphics provided on LiveType not creative enough, so this website an amazing variety of fonts.

Successful as you are spoiled for choice and can be easily downloaded onto LiveType.

I have improved as it has allowed to progress my graphics skill, since i can pick from a variety of shots. In the future i can pick creative graphics easily.

To convert video to Mp3, in order for it to be compatible to import into iMovie.

Successful as its quick and easy, also downloads straight onto iTunes, so was easy to import sound onto iMovie

In the future i can now use any audio of my choice.

To record production logs.

Successful as blogger is easy to use and i could use it on the go on my phone and record what i completed in the day.

In the future i can do work on the go.

To record part 2 and 6.

It was successful as it had high image and audio quality. Easy to use and also meant i could upload and edit at home since i also have an iMac.

In the future i can now do work at home specifically editing.

To gain permission to use music for opening sequence.

Successful as we could communicate with musician even though we were miles apart.

In the future i may use social networking sites to get in touch with certain individuals to gain permission for music.

Final Cut Express

BSR opening sequence

To merge graphic and final sequence together.

It was successful as you could manipulate graphics, for example, we maximized the title at the end of our opening sequence and also a fade in/out was added. However, it was unsuccessful as the rendering took long therefore it wasted time and i got very impatient. Moreover, it took a long time to get used to! and when placing the graphics on top of the footage, it would sometimes cause gaps to form so the graphics would go in-between instead of layering on top of the footage.

I have learnt how to layer graphics on top of footage. So, in the future this will come in handy as next year we have to make music videos and i will be using this software.

It was successful as it was easy to use since i had prior knowledge.

My editing skills have improved greatly considering the software had been updated. This will help in future projects as a lot of tasks including editing awaits e.g. music videos.
