Its quicker to upload to
and then embed the file in
than trying to use
ownupload tool, and gains more marks. It is actually also closer to the real film industry’s practice as publicityand generating potential fan interest is critical to a film’s fortunes.
MICRODRAMA & NARRATIVE THEORYEVAL 6
What was this task? What did you do, and what did you learn from this? Have you uploaded this video?Give a summary of the narrative theory covered – it would be useful to apply this later to your production.Remember, the Media course is designed to integrate and build on your textual and theory work from earlier in the year; your practical, and the written work supporting this, should reflect this knowledge andunderstanding.If you can (try asking colleagues who do English if unsure), try to add brief explanations of the terms
omniscient narrator, linear narrative, and non-linear narrative
, which you can later apply to your production
PRELIM TASK EVAL 6,7
Again, refer to your worksheets on this. Specify the task set. Describe the production process, and includesome evaluation. If you re-shot or re-cut some parts to more clearly meet the criteria for including anexample of match-on-action, for example, say so and summarise what you learnt from the process. Haveyou given clear, precise explanations [in your own words] of what the three principle terms (
match-on-action, shot/reverse shot, the 180 degree rule
) mean? You could add something on the
30 degree rule
…This technical test is designed to reinforce your understanding of
classic continuity editing
(think abouthow editing is made unobtrusive, almost invisible or un-noticable) – include an explanation in your ownwords of what this is. Many of you unintentionally included
when initially cutting your match-on-action sequence – can you explain this term? [You could use the posters in F6 for this!!!!]Have you uploaded your completed video? You might want to make some notes under hardware/software.
Its useful to keep in mind the specific criteria used for marking your work – you’ve been given a copy of agrid summarising how your Research & Planning, Production and Evaluation are each marked. You caneither type this up, or use the copy in the AS Coursework Blog to embed the document as an easy reference point every time you’re blogging.Make careful note of what you’re being asked to do, and keep checking back to self-assess whether you’recurrently at the Minimal, Basic, Proficient or Excellent level on each.
THE 7 EVALUATION QUESTIONS
Type these up in this post (or copy/paste from my blog). Its easy to leave this to the last minute and so loseout on most of the 20% available for this section – which is challenging. You should try to use each of the 7questions as a heading, and add brief notes as you go, which will make life much easier as you enter theoften very stressful final week of editing, with limited time left to complete the Evaluation. These notes donot constitute your Evaluation, which will be your very last post on the blog.
