Evaluation Q4

How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

Throughout the filming process for our music video, our group used a variety of different technologies and software.

The technologies we used included two different cameras. We originally use the school camera although we didn’t think the quality was up to scratch so we moved onto using Ghanshyam’s camera which was much better quality although it didn’t automatically focus.
We started off also using a tripod which was supplied by the school however we felt it would look more natural and in general better to film completely handheld, the tripod we were given was also broken.

The software being used consisted of Adobe Photoshop and Final cut pro. Final Cut Pro was the software in which we used to edit our final music video. Involving the music video we used Photoshop to make the production label’s logo which we put into our music video during the opening shots.

With the digipak I only used Photoshop to construct the digipak as well as edit images and add text. I used DaFont to get the variety of fonts that I used for my digipak.

The blog that I have made has also used a variety of programs and technologies to help make it look better. With certain photos I uploaded to my blog I used my phone so that I have evidence of what I was talking about as well as making the blog look visually appealing.

The blog also has a variety of videos embedded in which I talk about; I used YouTube to achieve this.

Evaluation Q3

What have you learned from your audience feedback?

Evaluation Q2

How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

When it came to choosing a song to base a music video off we felt as a group what did not only like and know the song well but also relate to. We created a character that would it well into the conventions of the genre and created a sad back story of him try to escape and rough life. Audiences will be able to identify the conventions through the costume in which are artist is wearing, designer clothes, jewellery etc.

My digipak and poster fit well with the music video in general. With the digipak and poster I wanted to show off the scenery as well as photography as the quality of shots and scenery played a big part in the music video. The style is very simplistic and flows well which is conventional to RnB and rap as flow plays a big part to the lyrics so the music video should follow also.
