I have learnt how to achieve simple camera shots and angles ranging from match-on-action, over the shoulder, point of view shot, close-up and mid-shot. I have also learnt how to manage and organise time, props, location and actors for the filming. This was quite a challenge for our group and we had a few issues on finding a location for our party scene. However we were able to over come this problem.
Through the process of creating our final piece i have learnt how to edit using Final Cut Pro and have learnt new ways of adding sound, transitions and text. I have also learnt how to cut out clips and add still images, from watching tutorials on YouTube. During the process of creating our film I have noticed a few errors in the film we have produced such as a continuity error where a camera is in one scene and gone in the other.
There is also an unwanted person sat in the top screen of one shot and finally in the mise-en-scene you can see our storyboard lying on the bathroom floor.
Overall I have been able to learn a wide range of techniques that i have applied to both my preliminary and main task, and i am very happy with the outcome and will be taking what I have learnt to the next stage.
