Our final video: (Woop woop!)
Hey there Onlooker, CreativeCookie here and today’s post is my final post! I am very surprised how quickly the process of this blog has come along…
But first, our final draft! I am beyond proud of what we have achieved! Is it amazing compared to the workings of David Fincher or Alfred Hitchcock? No! But that was never our goal, I am just glad we have made a piece using tech I’d never dream of using!
Camera: Overall, our use of camera kicked started this sequence. The fact we used a camera of much better quality for the main task, compared to the continuity, shows how we have developed in knowledge over the course. Section A of the exam has made me see the use of camera in everything I watch! So coming up with use of camera in our sequence was easy.
Mise en scene: Overall, thinking of an idea (my job) was he easy part! Creating whatever brain explosion I have has always been an issue. Some how everything I saw in my head has become an amazing piece, that aesthetically, to me shows everything I have seen in a crime thriller.I love our superimposition used throughout the piece. Since watching the “Se7en” opening titles sequence I have been hooked on the premise and we achieved it!
Sound: Overall, our choice of music was a really good one as I feel it really fits our genre and it carries a good beat like the music in the “Se7en” titles. I love the sirens and bird scores (no matter how many times they were played!) I also like our voice over, we did change actor a few times but it all worked out for the best.
Editing: Overall, editing was our biggest and longest challenge. I love the flashes used for our editing! I feel it brought the most in relation to the crime thriller genre. I also like how our scenes have been equal cut and shared throughout the sequence.
I feel this blog and this media course has really changed my views on the modern workings of the world. Creating this video was a challenge but its one I am glad we took. In the end; Gabby, Lewis, Simran and myself have created something using all of our strengths and even our weaknesses. To be honest, I really do think it went well! Yes, it was difficult at times but we got up, dusted ourselves off and tried again!
