Self Evaluation: Production
- Problem solving
I believe we demonstrated quick thinking when hitting obstacles. For instance when we planned to film outdoors and the weather was poor, we changed the plans.
By the end of the production we became very fast and efficent when setting up and packing away the filming gear.
Most days we obtained a decent amount of footage, within the production times given we always
- Expert Interviews
Another one of our strong points were organising and executing expert interviews. We also Had to rearrange two of them which I think we managed very well and calmly
We were able to consistently update the blog throughout production, every day of filming.We see this as impressive as we made time to script and record each summary of the day via soundcloud
Technically, I think our strong point was doing camera pans, I think we executed them very well.
- Turn Taking
We equally took on different roles: carrying equipment, filming, sound controlling, interviewing The roles were equally share amongst us throughout the production
- Creativity and Resourcefulness
When we came across things to film we grasped it - for instance passing through the art block we saw artwork which can connect to the subjectTherefore we filmed these.
Hand Held Shots
The majority of the hand held shots were tremendously shaky - with a majority too uncomposed to use. The reluctuancy to use the tripod cost us some deal.
Whilst filming we failed to identify obscurities with the sound levels of the expert interviews. it was only until the editing stage they were identified
The intial set of questions we imposed for our interviews were too broad. They lacked focus and an indication of what direction we wanted to sway in the interviews
We struggled zooming in and out at times - it would either be joltedly done or too fast.
Packing Up Equipment
We had complications packing up at times as we'd sometimes insert the equipment into its case wrong, and forget to remove the slide from the tripod off the camera
