Evaluation Qs 1 to 6

Evaluation Question 7. (Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?)

  Our preliminary task was more amateur in the sense that we were unsure about what we were doing, lacking the skills needed to create a piece of media text. Although, this being said, our preliminary task was something of a learning curve in itself as we somewhat developed the skills needed as we went along whereas with our film opening we already had some basic skills and we planned it out more effectively, using storyboards, an animatic and shooting script therefore knew what we were doing. We also had to look at the weather so all scenery was consistent within our opening to try and keep continuity, so firstly, we improved on the whole planning process, we kept as close to our original script as possible but there were slight alterations we had to make due to elements outside our control (e.g unable to get hold of actors who we were originally using, although we could look at weather forecast it happened to snow on the first weekend we planned to film so we had to reschedule).

Saturday 26th Febuary, we filmed at Moyles court, the weather was good there was enough sun to make the place look peaceful, but it was not so bright that the sun distorts the shot... It was also dry which made things easier.

Shots of potential filming location.



Risk assesment.

If crew mess around here, there are no railings on the roof,
so stupidity could see someone falling off the roof.
Again, there is no railings on roof, so caution is required.

Ledge is only a few feet thick, so if venturing on the ledge,
may fall and hurt yourself.

Stairs are stone, will hurt if you fall down them.

Hole in floor, Could brake ancle if leg gets trapped.

Dark, simple, normal clothing to give the impression of realism and make the film more believeable, making it morer effective to the audience. To create this effect, we will probably be using a dark hoodie and jeans.


dark simple hoodie.

this is similar to the dress codes of jodie foster in silence of the lambs... simple dark coloured clothes.
