This week, I’m working on assembling a rough edit for my documentary. I got my lecturer looking over it to see what I needed to include and improve on, Alan Moffat gave me some advice to fill in the awkward blanks by recording a robot like a voice-over which he kindly volunteered to do for me. He also told me to add footage of clips of when the Megabytes Staff/Interviews are talking about certain subjects. I’m not too overly confident on the documentary and still feel that it’s lacking taste, however, within the time constraints I am pleased with what I have so far. My aim for completion of my final of this is 7th June, along with submitting it appropriate paperwork.
My aim is to have a final edit of my show-reel by 4th June, ready for next week’s presentation for both the movie night to display our work and also during the GU presentation. I am hoping to obtain a ‘B’ for my Graded Unit.
Wednesday Morning, I have assembled the video for Cumbernauld FMs promo – I felt I could’ve implemented more interviews within this – but due to lack of time and not been able to get certain presenters on days I was available, I couldn’t do this. I stuck to my two interviews which I have compiled of both presenter ‘George’ and ‘Craig’ along with the logo and sound fx of introducing Cumbernauld FM, I have used pictures and clips as cut-aways over the interviews fading out to contact details and address at the end. I have also included a royalty free soundtrack within the edit.
I have spread out the re-sit amendments for my LO1-LO3 of critical analysis over 3 days working on them at night time from 31st May-2nd June so that next week, they can be signed off.
I have finished my motion graphic title for my production company.
I am overall satisfied with the graphic, however, feel that some elements could have gone better, due to time constraints I wasn’t able to implement more motion, which makes my graphic look pretty basic, overall pleased with the final project.
As this course draws to a close, I feel privileged to have work along side some amazing students as well as working with lectures that have had previous experience in the industry. It has been a learning curve for me these past 2 years at NCL. Even though at timed I struggled, I pushed myself harder and tried better. I do feel that if I concentrated and stuck with deadlines properly that the detail of my work could’ve been better, I have seen slight process within my work as I’ve processed on to HND but still feel that it could’ve been better. Overall, I am privileged to have been able to have this opportunity to learn and gain skills as well as contacts in the industry that I love which is HND TV production.
