WEEKLY JOURNALS

This is where you think about your FMP learning journey and development.
Don’t simply describe what you did - consider what you have learnt and how this has benefitted
your project. What do you need to improve?

THIS IS JUST GUIDANCE THAT YOU NEED TO ADAPT TO YOUR OWN PROJECT. YOU HAVE CREATED YOUR
OWN PRODUCTION SCHEDULES AND YOUR WEEKLY BLOGS SHOULD REFELCT THAT.

THESE QUESTIONS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED IN THE WEEKS YOU COMPLETED THEM. DO NOT JUST SUBMIT THIS
FORM FILLED IN FOR YOUR WEEKLY BLOGS. THERE SHOULD BE 11 WEEKLY BLOG ENTRIES (INCLUDING
EASTER).

same place at the same time as they also have work to do so
they were all busy most of the time.

How suitable do you feel your I feel they suited very well as they went with the lyrics of the song
locations were for your filming? such as the trains which helps to make it more effective to the
viewer as they feel more immersed in the music video. They also
had good lighting and looked aesthetically pleasing to the
viewer overall which adds a good effect/.

How have you made use of the I used some techniques which I have learnt so far this year such
technical skills you have developed so as jump cuts to make people disappear. I also used a bit of
