Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?
Now looking back at my progress from my first preliminary task to my final film, I can see that I have definitely made improvement in both my editing and my variety of shots.
Firstly, my confidence has grown massively in my use of the programme Preimere Pro. I feel I can now confidently edit shots together more so than I did in my preliminary task, and my editing is generally a lot better than the simple editing seen in my preliminary task.
In my preliminary task I used the 180 degree editing rule to convey a conversation between two people, however I did not include dialogue in my film meaning I cannot compare my progression in this editing skill as the 180 rule is disregarded in my film. However I feel that using the 180-degree rule in my preliminary task helped me to improve my confidence in my editing skills and inspired me to use a variety of editing techniques in my film such as match on action.
Furthermore, I feel the continuity of my editing has improved since my preliminary task as after editing a variety of basic shots together in the preliminary task, we were assigned to film a mundane task. This involved filming an everyday task which may often be seen as ‘boring’. I filmed the simple task of washing up a mug, and used different camera angles, sound and editing techniques to try and make the film more interesting.
Another large progression is the addition of after effects to my final film. I leant how to use the complex programme to create my indent and to add titles to my final film. These are two things that I did not know how to do when creating my preliminary and therefore did not include. The use of my ident and titles has enhanced my final product and made it look more professional.
