This is the final work for unit 2 pre-production assessment 4 and while was working on these unit I have enjoyed all the works I have been given and set moreover I get to know my team members very well as well as other students.
For my magazine feature I am doing pretty well but haven’t finished yet need to do some part bits and bubs, at the moment I am doing magazine cover therefore I have included pictures of my team member and I had to put the picture the one I took so then teacher can assets each individually students abilities therefore and had to ensure to use the photo I had taken.
Well I found working on Photoshop much more easier then working in final cut because I have used quite a few time Photoshop and used for my advert in yr 11 but I had never used final cut it was the first time and I was struggling as well I found it very hard for me so asked help of my team members. But in the other hand I think that final cut is fun to work with because you are actually making videos and adding music and get to make and learn how to make videos but very hard to use it and kept on confusing myself up and also everyone put a equal amount of effort on final cut .
I think I spend about about 2 or 3 hours to research for my print features and before I start my print task I made few drafts of magazine just to make sure it’s ok and to get few ideas what to add on magazines so I have added lots of pictures of ourselves I wanted to see different types of cover e.g. headlines, slogans, texts etc I have also used barcodes to make sure it looks like a real magazine instead of Draft.
I think I need more developing work on practical skills because I kept on forgetting their tools other than that I was comfortable to work it I enjoyed every minute of this unit and I am looking forward to work on other unit as well.
Overall I have enjoyed this project a lot and getting to know all the words and have started using them as well I have learned a lot in media how things work and etc I am glad I choose this subject because I get to discover new things as well. I am not very creative person and have been influence by this lesson which is a very good thing because in media we do lot of creative works. I worked very accurately being focused in lessons and listening to each other’s ideas, giving ideas as well as gaining from others too. Also, I usually meet my deadlines because media is the one of my main subject at the moment so I give my 100% focus. Moreover, we mainly used SLR camera for this project, my understanding to it was quite clear because all the instructions were given in the lesson which helped everyone a lot.
My editing skills have been improved because I added a lot of effective texts the other things was I learn how to download font and add it to the font so we had to do the same things for our project I think it was nice idea because mostly font are just normal and need to choose which would take a long time to decide so it was a good idea , then we found the perfect font in that website we wanted something really big bold and we decided to do defused font that fitted on our title www.dafonts.com but before that we had to choose and decide all in group .
All the way through my work I was told to save my work in every 5 minutes because computer might get froze and might lost all the work or other and it’s a benefit to us and its very important to save work and keep it organized all the time.
Going through to this unit I think my strongest skill was filming part because it was very useful plus I also get to learn and I will be ready to use in the future.
I think I need more developing work on practical skills because I kept on forgetting the tools other than that I was comfortable to work with and this way also I will be learning a lot about equipments.I enjoyed every minute of this unit and I am looking forward to work on other unit as well.
