Main Points Of The Evaluation


.Attendance problems – People not showing up to lessons, late marks ECT …

.Editing problems - lack of internet – Learning the ways of final cut, and being without the internet for several lessons.

.Camera and tripod problems – Filming with a broken tripod, and filming without good sound quality, and filming in HD accidently

.Continuity editing – Members of the group were wanting to film in different weather conditions, and different times of the day.

.Costume problems – Finding the appropriate costume to use for the opening.

.Music – Finding music that suits the genre, and making sure it was copy write free.

.Angles/Match on Actions – Deciding what angles to use, and when to use match on action shots, and figuring out how to edit the two scenes together.

.Target audience – 13 – 19 year olds, Teenage age group.

.Media Institution – What company would most likely release a film such as ours.

.Social Groups – Stereotypes, counter stereotypes, imbalance of social groups.

.What we have learnt since our preliminary task – Different angles and rules, lighting, editing with music and text, effects, such as wire frame.

.Final Cut, Macs, Garage band – Getting to learn how to use the Mac computers and coming to terms with the new technology.

. Up to date music (kind of), over exaggerated costume and acting – Music that can relate to our target audience, basic stereotypical superhero music.

.Use of counter types against superheros – Portraying Keith as weak and pathetic instead of the usual superhero style. E.g... Strong and powerful.

. Mise en scene – Good use of hidden extras that the audience may or may not see.

.Shot framing and head room – Not wasting shot space, such as too much head room, which can ruin certain shots.

.The Blogs – Keeping our blogs up to date, making weekly analysis videos.

This weeks plans

For this week we are going to film the last shots of the film. We are then going to start editing on Thursday (if possible) and hope to spend 8-10 hours on editing and we will do any reshoots (if necessary). We plan to have the whole thing finished by Friday and uploaded onto here.

What we have left to do.

We have to film a few more shots of the opening, think about editing options then actually go into editing. Shooting is going well but we need to go over our footage and see if the framing is good and we need to think about the mise - en - scene. After editing, we will look through it and check if we need any reshoots or if we need to change some of the transitions or how we have edited it.
