Look back at preliminary task - How have you improved since then?
Since our first preliminary we have improved a vast amount. We have learned a lot about camera techniques and media theory and we have applied this to our OTS. We've applied many of the editing and camera techniques that we have learned to our OTS, this has allowed us to take the shots that we have taken on the camera and piece them together. in our preliminary we learned that angles and the 180 degree line are important and are essential to way that we filmed our OTS. We have also been able to concentrate on implementing some of the known stereotypes and popular trends to make our OTS as attractive as we can.
the two pictures (above) shows how location effects the ambience and the mood of the scene, like how the abandoned and decrepit car is able to make the audience feel a little dismay and fearful as the car makes the scene that much darker, as opposed to the scene (left) that shows a lighter more brighter scene in which nothing dark, scary or horrific is happening and so the audience feels much less concerned with that scene. this is how we have improved on our locations of where we film and what the location says about the scene
The two pictures (above) show how what we have learned about lighting is applicable to our OTS and how it is able to alter the mood and the atmosphere of the shot and scene. The first scene we did not know much about lighting at the time and after learning about how lighting can alter a scene we now know how to manipulate a scene using light, these two pictures show this as the picture left was before we learned about lighting and the picture right shows how we have improved on how we use lights to alter a scene
Above is an example of how our selection of actors was much better chosen. As you can see there are uses of steriotypes that helped the audience to be drawn in.
Here are two screen shots from our preliminary (left) and our final OTS (right). since our we have learned a lot about media theory and what camera angles are good and useful
