Evaluation - 1. In what ways do your media products use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

View word document here: This is my first question, where I used a green screen and final cut pro to edit it. This enabled me to talk with images alongside to give examples or reinforce what I am saying. The music video at some point plays throughout however I slowed it down to fit it in with what I am saying.

Evaluation - 2. How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

View word document here: This is my second question where I chose to do a voice recording as there were a lot of images to show and I use these images to back up what I am actually saying within the video.

Evaluation 3 - What have you learned from your audience feedback?

View Word Document Here: - This is my third question which I also edited in final cut pro and used the green screen for a similar reason. It allowed me to give examples of the feedback and speak alongside this.

Evaluation 4- How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning, and evaluation stages?

This is my final answer to the questions which I have put into a presentation on Prezi as I felt that I didn't need as many images to back up my point so I put it into a presentation for simplicity.

Evaluation process

I have completed the first question for the evaluation but I still need to read over it and edit certain sections of it. As its insisted that the evaluation is presented in different media based forms, I am going to film myself in front of a green screen and then talk through my first part of the evaluation. I am then going to insert a video in the background which highlights the different sections that I am talking about. I have also done my second question however I am going to present this through a video and use voice recording to talk over the certain parts of the digipak/poster/video that I am discussing.

final music video

This is the third draft for our music video, we are going to put it on websites for people to give us feedback on it so that we can use this feedback within our individual evaluations, however we are really happy with the way that our music video looks!

Editing last parts of music video

Firstly, we needed to make sure that for the first chorus there is  a shot of me singing which we replaced with a previous one of me singing 'suddenly I see' as this is a convention which we need to adhere to. We didn't want to repeat this shot more than once so we extended out another shot where we are spinning around, as this involves movement in the shot it does not slow down the pace so we are all happy with this change.

 I changed one of the 'suddenly I see' sections to build up the pace more by including more pictures infront of the previous shot as it is quite slow and we needed to build more pace on these sections as they are the chorus.

I also changed another one to more cars driving past which has been sped up to give it more pace, the previous shots were too slow and didn't look right so we are all happy with the change that we have made here. 

The section where there is a montage of images, the effect has been removed to speed up the pace of it as the effect slowed it down. 
We included the text for the name of the band and the titles but we need to move this around and also include the record label too, which will make it look a lot more realistic. I've moved around the text and also changed the font so that it is coherent with the digipaks. 

This can now be exported and we can put it onto social networking websites such as facebook and twitter so that we can get more feedback from outside people. This will be really helpful because we can get an outsiders perspective on our music video as they will not be aware of the genre so it will be interesting to find out wether this is portrayed to people. We can also all use the feedback individually in our evaluations. If there are any major recurring issues that are spoken about in our feedback we will discuss in changing certain aspects but at the moment we are very happy with the way that the music video looks, and with the feedback that we have already got from teachers and also people in our class.
