Evaluation Question 4 - How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

Page 2: Presentation1 question 4

Throughout the year I have used many different media technologies to create my products. I have used them in the construction stages, the research & planning and evaluation stages. In this PowerPoint I am going to explain and give examples of the different technologies I have used and how they have had an impact on my work and if I found them helpful or not.

Final Cut Express

I used final cut express to produce my teaser trailer. In AS media I used final cut express too, but I found it hard to use and felt as if my work I produced from it was not to the standard I wished for. But this year in A2 I had much more time to learn on this and felt as if I have learnt a lot. On Final Cut Express I have produced my teaser trailer for the construction of my products and also used it to produce my animatic in the research and planning.

In my teaser trailer I wanted to create the horror genre effect and wanted my trailer to look as professional as possible. As you can see by these screen shots, I have learnt to fade the soundtrack and also the on screen visuals. Changing the opacity to make a shot fade at the end enabled me to create the horror genre effect I was aiming for and certain shots because I felt as if the normal shot-to-shot was not affective enough.

I used Prezi in my evaluation stages and research and planning stages. I used it to research my sound ideas because I found it easy to uploads videos of different sounds I had found on YouTube that I could create on garage band. I could then link them so an idea very quickly and efficiently. I also used Prezi for my primary audience research and to produce my film timeline. I used prezi for my primary audience research because I could upload screen shots very easy and then link them to the outcome. Also prezi is easy to work while having an excellent layout and a professional look. Prezi also allowed my to be creative by adding my own touch to things by choosing my own layout and fonts etc. I feel as if I am skilled on prezi and I have reached my potential because I am proud of the work I produce from this technology every time.

I used glogster very early in my research and planning. I made a Glogster to show the location, character types and costume that is going to feature in my teaser trailer. I decided to use glogster for this because I did not need to include a lot of text, just a visual image of what I was going to include in my trailer, so I decided glogster was the best media technology to use. Glogster allowed me to be creative an add my own touch on things. I found it easy to use because it is simple and straight forward.

This is the glosgter I produced and as you can see, I uploaded similar images of the location where I shot my trailer. Also I included images of the costume my characters would be wearing. I also put images of the props I planned to use in the trailer. Glogster allowed me to show in clear detail what I was planning on doing in my trailer, instead of putting it down in words because I wouldn’t have been able to describe this in words. I also added a horror genre touch on this by having a red/black background.

Garage Band

I used garage band in the construction of my trailer to get the corrects sound effects and soundtrack fro my trailer. I had not used garage band much before but I had an idea of how to use it. I enjoyed using this because I had the chance to experiment different sounds and to see what sounded best with my trailer. The advantages of using garage band was that I could experiment what sounded best and it was quick and easy to re-new it if it did not create the correct effect I was aiming for. If I had to say some disadvantages of using garage band was that I was limited to certain sounds to chose from but I found the ones I was looking for.

Here are some screenshots of me using garage band, as you can see on the first image I am searching through the sounds trying to find the best one to fit my trailer. The second image I am putting together my soundtrack. I would say that I am fairly skilled on garage band but I have not reached my full potential on it, there are still things I have to learn but I am pleased of the outcome of my product from using garage band.

I have used blogger to publish all the work I have done. I used it in the construction stages, the research & planning and evaluation stages of my work. Blogger didn’t just allow me to record each stage of my production but du to its online nature it allowed me to produce better work as I could get inspirational ideas that I included into my work. Blogger has allowed me to achieve the most out of my products because of the layout, when looking through my blog, if something did not look he way I wished for, I can easily go back to the product and adjust certain things and then upload it again into blogger. The advantages of using blogger is that its easy to keep track of what you have done and if it is up to your standards. Also it is easy to use and looks and effective way to present your work.

Here are some screen shots of my blog, you can see how it is presented therefore can understand how I can use this layout to look over my work and improve it if needed.

Adobe Photoshop

I used Photoshop to create the magazine front cover and poster for part of my construction work. I feel as if I have gained a lot more skills from AS. I have learnt a lot more of the tools on Photoshop and made this evident in my work. I have learnt how to correctly use the layers and how to order them to make text/images over the top of other things or behind them. I feel as if I have used Photoshop to the best of my ability but maybe there is still room for improvement. The advantages of using Photoshop is that I could create the genre I was aiming for and create professional products.

In this screen shot I am changing the layer style. I am putting an effect on the text to make it stand and and more visible to the potential reader. This is a skill I have grown to be more confident with and therefore made this evident in my product.

In this screen shot I am placing text in the place I wanted to put it. This is going to be part of my sell lines. This is not a new skill I have learnt but thought I would include this screen shot to show me using Photoshop.
