This is my audience feedback survey based upon my first draft music video.
This is my third and final image manipulation PowerPoint. I’ve decided to edit this picture of my two performers as I think the image was far too dark before and wasn’t good enough quality.
By playing around with features of Photoshop, I’ve discovered how to use the levels and curves tools on an adjustment layer to edit the tones and colouring of my photographs successfully.
Here you can find my second screenshot presentation of how I manipulated this photograph I took of a sunset. I believe that this image was visually pleasing without the editing but the editing just added those extra touches to make it even nicer.
This image will be featured on my final digipak either as the CD or an inside cover with a special thanks message over the top.
Above is my first PowerPoint on image manipulation. I used Photoshop to edit this photo of a rose for my digipak. I believe that without the editing the image was far too dull and didn’t look good even with a quote over the top. By altering the contrast and colours of this image, it now stands out so much more and doesn’t look as boring.
I decided to take a before and after screenshot of this editing process of a close up shot of leaves in my music video. I believe that this colour grading has positively effected this shot and makes the colours much more aesthetically pleasing to my audience and links better with my Autumn theme.
This is a powerpoint of screenshots from my first time colour grading in my music video. I found this rather simple after I got used to it and watched a tutorial on the basics of it. I believe that by colour grading this rose shot it allows it to look much better in terms of quality and tone. It suits my videos tone more and adds a deeper colour.
In order to improve my digipak from the draft to the real thing, I got feedback from two media students. The feedback that they gave me was crucial for improving my work and getting to the full mark level on this product because I didn’t know how my audience members felt about it without hearing from them.
The first person I got feedback from was Emily. She’s an 18 year old girl who studies media at sixth form currently giving me not only a females perspective but a critical one from the industry side of things. She mainly focused on conventions that I’ve used and what I can do to improve my work to the best quality. Click on the image on the right to listen to the feedback from Emily.
My next lot of feedback was from Jack. He’s a 17 year old boy who studies media and film studies. He has an in-depth understanding of media technologies and how you can produce high quality work with the correct equipment. Click on the photo to the right to listen to what Jack gave me as feedback.
I got feedback for my advert drafts from two of my media classmates: Sarah Page and Aimee Smith. Their feedback was vital for me to make improvements to my work because they understood the course from the industry perspective so they knew what I needed to include to get the most professional product possible.
Click on the image to the right to listen to my Voki feedback from Sarah. I found her feedback very helpful as it was from the critical viewpoint of a media student because she mentioned how I could use media technologies to improve the quality of my product.
Click this image to listen to the Voki feedback I recieved from Aimee. She gave me feedback based around the conventions of real media products and how successful my product was in relation to this. Her feedback will help me to improve before I create my final product meaning that I can make the most successful product possible.
Above are my two contact sheets from my shoots. These are all the images that I’m going to consider using when creating my advert and my digipak. Obviously, I’ll need to edit some in terms of colour and tone to make sure they all suit my genre and look good on my ancillary tasks.
This is a short video I made using my iPhone with behind the scenes footage from when I did an at home shoot. I spent about one hour filming and taking pictures of the sunset to add the the visual aesthetic of my video.
