final pieces

Question 4 - How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

Question 3 - What have you learnt from your audience feedback?

Question 3

What have you learnt from your audience feedback?

Peer feedback –

Getting feedback from our peers really helps as they see what work we put in in class and they understand as they are doing the same work as us.

There were 4 feedback sheets that people in our class said they liked the editing – 2 people said they liked especially the fast paced editing when it was the drummers solo.

This helped us decide that we definitely wanted to keep in the drum solo where the editing really picks up pace. It shows off our skill in terms of editing and emphasis's the drummers skill.

A lot of the peer feedback said nother improvement for us was to have more energy in the performance. Harry was the main singer of the band so me and toni had to make him energetic and ready to perform like he is actually in a band. We again looked back at music video from indie rock bands and said to him he need to perform more like that.

The teachers feedback included that they liked the editing during the breakdown of the song and that our editing on and off the beat was very good.

This gave us the reassurance that our editing is a strength and something we don’t need to work on. Editing is important is important in music videos so I am glad we mastered the editing.

Our draft we handed in on the 3/12/13 got peer feed back and everyone (9) said an EBI is to synch it up. The singer was out of time which was very obvious hence they reason everyone put it in the EBI box. The reason the lip synching wasn’t correct is because when we was filming the band shots they drummer was so loud we couldn’t here the music so the singer found it really hard to sing a long to the song because he could hardly hear it.

4/9 people said another EBI for my group is if Harry performed better/ was more enthusiastic. It is important the performance meets the expectations of the audience otherwise they will find it boring and want to watch something else. Sometimes music videos can let the song down so it is important everything in the music video is perfect. These feedback sheets were given completed on the 3/12/13

Question 2 - How effective is the combination of your main task and ancillary task?

Question 1 - In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products.

plan for cd cover

This is the CD cover for our band. We are sticking to a blue/purple/pink theme. We think this works really well as it suites the genre as it is rock but it is indie rock. The mixture of colours doesn't actually put a mark on what colour it is. We have the logo we included in the music video. This links the song to the album meaning that lost in the basement is a main song featuring on the album.  The logo is a memorable symbol for people to remember and link the album with.  On the front of the album we are planning to have close ups of 3 all band members

Face uv paint designs

These are the ideas I was drawing in class whilst Harry was editing and Toni was planning the advert for our bands album. I took some inspiration from the internet. I tried to go with a differnt theme every time, whether it was, dots, lines or swirls. The dots one is actually a plan for flicking the paint onto their face, however it is hard to do it in pencil. I personally like this one the best as it looks so much better in person.

I also like the bottom left one on the paper. I took inspiration from the picture bellow, I really like the sharp lines and the swirls. We didn't include the flowers as it is a indie rock band that are going to be wearing this uv paint so we want it to stick to the genre.
