Due to their being more members in my preliminary task group, I did not get that much chance of editing and filming.
As I have worked alone in my media product, I have learnt various factors on creating a movie.
I have learnt about different shot types, and what shots work well together, and how to edit them to make them quicker or slower, I also realised the importance of getting the actual shots right and not too rush.
I also changed the lighting of shots to make them fit together in sequence.
A main thing that I have learned in about technologies, such as LiveType and garage band.
The importance of hearing the voice clearly has had a major impact on my film, therefore I realised the importance of having a voice recorder, to re-do any sound you could not hear but also for a voice-over which adds exposition.
I had to plan my shots carefully and what was needed to be said by my actors and actresses.
Also how to create a realistic killing, without it appearing to be a "joke." I did this by using a point of view shot, so you did not actually see the knife, just the arm movement, therefore I used a water bottle, as it made it much more realistic, as my killer was frightened of hurting the actor he was pretending to stab.
Although, I feel if I were to ever create a movie again, I have realised that I should start planning even earlyer on, I changed my idea a few times which was a problem, and alot of the footage was filmed late therefore it was hard for me to gain rough cuts and audience feedback.
I now value the importance of planning and getting shots done, so you can improve on them.
I also made sure there was no background noise. I also took many shots of each clip, so I had a variety too choose from, I could edit them together and work which clips worked best with each.
I used a voice-over to add exposition.
