Apart from the slight mishap at the beginning with the format of my film (rescued swiftly during the fire alarm by Phil), I think the showing went well overall. I was pleased with the feedback from G-man and SKing, aswell as the reaction of the class. After knowing almost immediately what direction I wanted to take with my film, I went straight into filming using a friends camcorder. After 3 days worth of recording, my friend then broke to me that he had lost the lead that connected the camera to a comp, thus meaning I had lost all my footage.
Therefore, it was a straight sprint to the finish, gathering all the clips that I could find from friends, family, my phone and laptop. I edited these together in my ancient mac’s version of iMovie and added a song that I thought was relevant to what my film was saying about me. Although I had to scramble and grab for footage, I was actually really pleased with the turn-out and think I was pretty lucky with what I found in such a short space of time.
Next time though, I would prefer the film to be of a better quality (my phones camera quality is pretty shocking) and would of loved to have been able to travel home to film my family and my hometown, which I could not do due to time restriction.
Excluding these factors, I’m pretty proud of the outcome and was really happy to show it in class.
