Reflective Feedback Week 5, 6, 7.

On these 3 weeks I learnt more about editing, different filming techniques as well as researching how to do post production and pre-production for specifically audio.

Through-out the week, we had a refreshed memory of different types of audio techniques, audio recorders such as microphones and different ways you can get different sounds. We also looked at the technical aspects of audio and the science within sounds and waves.  Within these weeks, we had to add the audio skills we learnt about directions of using a microphone, being in another location and recording audio and visuals in a public place. We also looked at different lighting skills and re-made our favourite scenes from movies, and we had to decide which type of lighting and direct ourselves using the people we had in our group.

Within our social media report, we had to keep updates on our blog and the progress of how our social medias were when we first made them compared to what they are now and see how much interaction we’ve gained over the two weeks, and I gained a lot of followers and interaction

Industry Overview Research

This is where I will show how the aspects of the industry are connected to what is being created, and how they all relate to each other in different ways.

I will also add how I’m going to show my overview of the industry and the way I’m going to produce this is by making a visual collage of what’s in the industry.

The overview of the industry research powerpoint will be posted on the next post.

Week 8, 9 Reflection and Feedback.

For week 8 and 9 we had to create a one minute short film based on ‘friendship’ and I decided to make mine inspired by one of my favourite films ‘500 days of summer’. As analysed how the original producers and set made it with the mood and tones in that particular scene, it helped me during production as I knew I had to film that happy scenes before sunset using natural lighting as the aim was to show that those parts where the expectations of the character, and I filmed it after sunset to describe the reality of what actually happens and using the natural mood to do the same impact as the expectations were fading away and reality became real for the character.

For editing, that’s where I had to do lots of research as it was something I never experienced editing before on Final Cut Pro X, so it took me a while to find a perfect video to learn from on how to do spilt screen effect. Since the timing is different for the expectations vs. reality, it was hard to manipulate the time frame for the different emotions and mood felt. Overall I really enjoyed creating this project as I was inspired by my one of my favourite movies and it was challenging enough for me to learn a lot within post and pre-production.
