Evaluaon - Queson 7 Looking back at your preliminary task what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? Harrison Radcliffe Skills Before Skills Now Camera Skills At the beginning of the course my camera skills did exist but they were limited. I had gained some filming skills through skateboarding and filming that. had also been involved in a few media products done by other, older students. My camera skills now are a lot beer. I have learnt many different shots so i am now able to use a variety of sll and moving shots. The different shots that i have learnt have allowed me to make my film opening smoother as i have the skills to use a dolly and steady-cam. I have also learnt how to use manual focus. This has allowed me to have crisper and beer focused shots. My improved camera skills have hopefully been reflected in my film opening. What I Would Like To Do In the future i would like to be able to use extreme high angle shots as well as large, panning establishing shots. At the moment in me these shots are near impossible to do as I lack the required equipment like mechanical cameras and a helicopter. Eding Skills At the start of the course my eding skills were very basic as I had had very lile experience with Adobe Premiere. However I did have some experience with a different soſtware so the concept of eding was not too much of a mystery. My eding skills are now a lot more developed as i have been able to pracce using Premiere. I have also watched some YouTube videos to gain more experience and understanding. My eding skills have allowed me to create a film opening that has smooth transions from shot to shot. My film opening also makes sense as there is a clear chronological story. If I could re-do the eding of my film opening i would like to further my special effects skills. I would also like to be able to create animated tles. If i was able to create special effects, i would be able to make my film opening more acon packed as i could recreate gun shots. If i was able to make professional looking animated tles, my film would seem a lot more technologically advanced. Preliminary VS Film Opening My preliminary task is where the idea for my film opening came from so i used it as a basis for my film. However, i made a lot of changes, for example; in my preliminary task the locaon i used did not really fit what was going on, so in my film opening i decided to mold everything around my film instead of vice verser. My film opening is filmed a lot beer as well, the shots are not shaky and they are focussed a lot beer. The pacing of my preliminary is one thing that i did like but it was a bit too slow, so in my film opening i decided to speed it up a bit and this was possible as my camera and eding skills had improved.

Skills Before Skills Now Camera Skills At the beginning of the

course my camera skillsdid exist but they were limited. I had gained some filming skills

through skateboarding and filming that. had also been

involved in a few media products done by other, older students.

My camera skills now are a lot better. I have learnt many different

shots so i am now able to use a variety of still and moving shots.

The different shots that i have learnt have allowed me to make

my film opening smoother as i have the skills to use a

dolly and steady-cam. I have alsolearnt how to use manual focus. This has allowed me to have crisper and

better focused shots. My improved camera skills have

hopefully been reflected in my filmopening.

What I Would Like To Do

In the future i would like to be able to use extreme high angle shots as well as large, panning establishing shots. At the moment in time theseshots are near impossible to do as Ilack the required equipment like mechanical cameras and a helicopter.

Editing SkillsAt the start of the course my

editing skills were very basic as I had had very little experience with Adobe Premiere. However

I did have some experience with a different software so the

concept of editing was not too much of a mystery.

My editing skills are now a lot moredeveloped as i have been able to

practice using Premiere. I have alsowatched some YouTube videos to

gain more experience and understanding. My editing skills have allowed me to create a film

opening that has smooth transitions from shot to shot. My film openingalso makes sense as there is a clear

chronological story.

If I could re-do the editing of my film opening i would like to further my special effects skills. I would also like to be able to create animated titles. If i was able to create specialeffects, i would be able to make my film opening more action packed as i could recreate gun shots. If i wasable to make professional lookinganimated titles, my film would seem a lot more technologically advanced.

Preliminary VS Film OpeningMy preliminary task is where the idea for my film opening came from so i used it as a basis for my film.However, i made a lot of changes, for example; in my preliminary task the location i used did not reallyfit what was going on, so in my film opening i decided to mold everything around my film instead of viceverser. My film opening is filmed a lot better as well, the shots are not shaky and they are focussed a lotbetter. The pacing of my preliminary is one thing that i did like but it was a bit too slow, so in my film opening i decided to speed it up a bit and this was possible as my camera and editing skills had improved.
