Problems with uploading the Footage

Our team member Sam, who had all the footage on his camera, lost it all. This meant we had to shoot the film opening again. However this had a lot of advantages as we could include alot of the improvements that we feel would benefit the video from our first attempt at filming.

Shooting our first draft Film Opening

Our first attempt at filming was successful, but we felt that there were many improvements that could be made:
- Use a wider variety of camera shots and angles
- Include more locations for chase
- Compromise camera angles so typography can be included when editing
- Use sunlight to our advantage.

Marking Criteria for Evaluation

Candidates will evaluate their work electronically. This MUST contain an element of audience feedback and may be either integrated with the presentation of the research and planning material or may be presented separately. Where candidates have worked in a group, the evaluation may be presented individually or collectively but the teacher must allocate a mark according the contribution/level of understanding demonstrated by the individual candidate. The questions that must be addressed in the evaluation are:


• In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

• How does your media product represent particular social groups?

• What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?

• Who would be the audience for your media product?

• How did you attract/address your audience?

• What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?

• Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?

The Logo

This is the logo my group and I have decided to use based on its simplicity, the clapper board is a classic icon in the film industry. It will also fit in nicely with our film opening, as apposed to our other drafts which were too comedic, this one fits nicely.

Draft Logos

The top logo was designed purely because our group has come under a lot of pressure recently with meeting deadlines, it's often felt like the we're going to burst, we've been pushed to the limit but we have met deadlines. This logo is therefore testimony to the pressure we've rose to.

The middle logo simply reflects the groups favourite animal - a sheep. Having something representative of each individual we believe is important to represent the four of us in each production.

The lower middle logo is an old fashioned camera reflecting the attitude we all share that "They don't make films like they used to." We all share this mentality and want to merge old with new through this logo.

The bottom logo is a clapper board. This logo would be used for it's simplicity and relevance to the film industry. After my past research on film institution logos in my opinion this is the one that relates to the most.
