The A2 Course

I am looking forward to trying to learn new skills to help improve my editing or broaden my knowledge about the media industry and I also likew the fact that there is more than one thing that we are goin to make. I want to make a media text that is as close to professional quality as I can with the skills I have and are going to learn. I know the course will encorporate a lot of work and will take up a lot of time, which is quite daunting, however I am looking forward to getting stuck in.

The AS Course

First of all we had to do a preliminary task which had to include all different types of camera shots and movement and we also had to use pre-production and post productions skills. We then created a thriller film opening using the skills we learnt doing the preliminary task e.g. storyboarding and editing the film.

I enjoyed making the film opening, using different camera angles and equipment to film the scenes and then use post production to merge all of the existing scenes into one smooth and flowing film opening. I think that we did well in incorporating music into the film as it fitted almost perfectly.

I think we could have improved on the editing of the film, for example using different effects to add more depth to the film. I also think we could have improved on the credits as they were quite simple and lacked creativity.
