Question 3 - How did you use media technologies in the construction, research, planning and evaluation stages?
Apple Mac- We used apple macs to do most of our things during the project. We used it for Weebly, uploading video clips, using final cut pro and researching. It helped our project look more professional and is overall a easy hardware to use. We used the camera to record videos and take photos to use for planning, evaluation and our magazine and poster.
Canon DSLR- This camera is a very easy way to film all of our clips for our trailer. We used it with a tripod so that all of our clips would be still and wouldn't have any shacking movement. The microphone isn't that great on it though as in some of our clips we did loose our sound so we had to use sound effects on top otherwise we would have had to film everything again.
Final cut pro- We used final cut pro to edit all of our videos on. This is very easy to use as it allowed us to easily import all our clips we had filmed so we could then use them in our trailer. By using this we were able to add lots of sound effects and text. It made our sequence look like it was high quality. On some of our clips we could put filters on to either make them look darker or lighter and also to create flashbacks with created a more creepy and scary atmosphere.
Microphone- we used a microphone when filming. We did this so that every detail was captured in each shot. This was useful as it meant we could film sounds twigs snapping and breathing, while filming the other shots. So we didn't have to film them separately and or edit them in. Without the microphone we would've have to edit in non-diegetic sound, but through the access of the microphone we have been able to film it while also filming the other shots.
Pic Monkey-we used Pic Monkey to edit our photos. the reason why we used this site is because it allows us to edit the images brightness, exposure and sharpen the photo and we are able to add effects. We used Pic Monkey to edit the magazine cover and poster as it makes it look professional.
Weebly- We used Weebly to to create our website which allowed us to write about our research and planning for our trailer. It also allowed us to show our progress throughout the project.
Here are different software's that we used during the making of our project; these include Weebly, Final Cut Pro and YouTube.
