Here is a screenshot we have taken from our project, showing the assassin viewing a picture of his possible target. We decided to use it instead of a photo on paper because we wanted to be different from traditional techniques and use modern ones instead.

Here is a shot of our CCTV footage. We used a wide angle lens to give an ultra wide view like CCTV cameras. We made the footage black and white then the frame lines and the recording symbol in final cut after filming.

Here is a shot that we thought quite a lot about, as it builds tension. It is a close up shot that is made to look hand held to add tension.

Final Cut.

Last few days.

for the last two lessons we have been busy working hard to meet the final deadline. We are fairly pleased with our end result and are confident that we have improved in most areas since the children's film opening. In the last lesson we focussed mainly on the titles, ident, ending and smoothness of clips and transitions.

We are now preparing for the evaluation for our project. Here are the questions that we have to answer as part of the evaluation:
1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge conventions of real media products?

2. How does your media product represent particular social groups?

3. What kind of media institution would distribute your media product?

4. Who would be the audience for your media product?

5. How did you attract/address your audience?

6. What have you learnt about the technologies from the process of constructing your product?

7. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to your final product?

Last day of filming

We managed to finish all of the filming on Friday the 5th February which meant we didn't need to continue on Monday. Me and Austin went to the hotel earlier to get all the equipment set up and in our costumes. When Harvey got there we filmed the first few scenes as we had filmed he last scenes before. Harvey then had to leave before we had finished filming but as Austin was the only person still in the film so i filmed the last scenes. Now we just need to capture and edit the film.
