WORK I HAVE PRODUCED

Through out my time at university i have had the pleasure of working alone or individually,
producing some work that i have been very proud to showcase to target audiences that they are
produced for. The work i have produced have been from a variety of different media elds from
photography to short lm and documentary. I am an avid lm enthusiast- studyingmedia
production and all of its aspectsfor a number ofyears and I am still currently increasing my
knowledge on a day-to-day basis by experimenting and working on various projects. All are lmed
and edited by myself.

ADDICTION This is my nished product for my Final media piece. It is a representation of a


music video but also has the aspects of a hard hitting moral of the story and a dark theme, I
wanted to create something that would be visually stimulating as well as something that was also
informative to the target audience. I did not want to go for the stereotypical short lm for example
a love story or Rom Com, i wanted my nal production to be something i have never done or
tried before, this being a music video i have been able to produce something i am proud to show
and i feel it represents modern society and how easy to get and common drug use is today.
I was fortunate enough to have the music produced specically for my theme of work and it was
made by a very talented producer Ranj Dhami, Who has in fact made the track available online
to purchase.

REMAKE PULP FICTION As one of our tasks while studying Media Production as a group we
were asked to remake Pulp Fiction and make it into our own style something that we could then
show to the rest of the group. This is the end product that had been edited and made into
something as a group we thought represented our style of work well and stimulating to view.

SHOWREEL This media piece is a collective of all the work i had previously done and taken part
of in my second year at University, I feel it represents my work in a way that is enjoyable to watch
as well as shows the key parts of the lm work i have really stood out at and made to a high
standard.

CINEMATIC CITY This short lm was created and edited by myself and was used to represent
something in the place we live in and call home, the brief was to create something to a
cinematography representation of the city and this is the end product i had produced.

GIRL WITH HANDS RAISEDThis was a short lm that portrayed the representation of a
photograph by Oskar Koloschka it was made to show what we as a group had taken from the
photograph and then put a narrative to the image to create a short lm.The lm was then made
into a story as we had made up what we as a group thought was the events leading up to the
image that the photograph represented.This was our end production and our representation of
what we thought the narrative behind the photograph would be..
