Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? by Mind Map: Looking back at your  preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?

1. 4. I noticed that the production stages were longer than the main brief as there was a lot more to include rather than just the camera angles, for our pre-production of our mini brief we had to plan and then draw out a story board. For our main brief however we had to plan, do a story board and a plan of action sheet. Not only this but we had to produce a power point to pitch our idea for our idea, we then were given feedback and with that feedback, my partner and I had to change a few things so we had to re draw and re write our story boards and plan of action as we had made some changed.

2. 1. In comparison to our main brief, our mini brief was very simple as we were getting used to using all the new technology and equipment.

3. 2. Our mini brief only had to be a short clip just to show our audience that we could include a variation of camera angles.Our main brief on the other hand not only had to include the different camera angles, but also had to add in the theme of horror and all the conventions of a horror genre film.

4. 3. Due to my partner and I not having used any media resources before, in places the continuity of the editing was not very smooth. However from that we then practiced and our main brief editing was better than before and looked more like a film opening compared to different scenes getting put together and looking disorientated. Not only this, but our camera skills were pretty basic, We did not use a tripod which had an effect on the camera as it was shaky and therefore for our ain brief we did use a tripod and because of this it made it look more professional than our mini brief.

5. 5. As well as getting feedback from our class friends after we pitched our idea, we also produced a questionnaire for people outside the classroom to answer about horror films. We asked people within the age range of 12-18. We found that people aged 15 up were more interested in horror films and that is how we decided to put our film as a 15 certificate as that’s who our audience will mainly be. In our mini brief however, we did not consider an age range we were focused on the different camera angles.

6. 6. I think looking back on my preliminary task, my media skills have improved and therefore the way in which we produced our main brief we can see a big difference in the quality of our work. Not only this but I think that the mini brief helped me to create a better main brief so that I could learn from previous mistakes and make sure it included everything to a high standard.
