What have you learnt about about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
This is a vodcast of me listing the technologies that I have used in the process of constructing my media product and briefly explaining how I have used them and why.
Blogger was possibly the most important technology we used because our entire project ends up on blogger. It is not limited to word press. You can embed in videos and import pictures. We also can link words to useful sites. Blogger therefore is extremely important.
All the technologies that we used helped us project our creative vision onto the screen. iMovie was extremely useful as we could mash up our shots. It's amazing how much you can do with such a simple tool. One thing on iMovie that we used was videoFX. We used this to add transitions to some of our shots as well as speeding up some driving footage.
The soundtrack was a big part of our product and without a soundtrack especially in the Slasher genre you lose all dramatic effect on your audience. We used some more advanced software than GarageBand however we used iMovie to cut the soundtrack up and add in other sound effects to match our footage.
LiveType was used to create our two company idents. This software was complicated but in the end it was one of the most important pieces of software as it allowed us to create two fantastic idents which are essential for our film.
I think the only software that could have made our production better would have been through the use of HD cameras. This would have sharpened up the footage and as we have filmed at night the camera would have had less trouble trying to adjust to the light.
