Audience - About the people - for the people.
Sean Walsh explained to us today in out multimedia lecture, in television accuracy is substantial and audience is completely compulsory.
I learnt that when filming you must always keep in mind the content, style, audience and to humanise, because T.V is not about what you do as an individual but it is about the relevancy you create as a team for your audience.
To get us journalism students into gear, we set off to film three VOX POPS (voice of the people) and three P2C’s (Piece to camera) on the recent outrages of the rise in student tuition fees.
Filming - At this stage the three most important shots to remember are wide-shot, mid-shot (also known as head and shoulders) and close up. Always fill the frame (FTF) you don’t want to have any wasted area in your shot. Pick out all those brilliant angles and shots and get them in the frame.
When interviewing for example an interview with an accredited source it’s always best and appropriate after asking their name how to spell it, this avoids any spelling errors and mistakes. Also it is wise to ask them of their job title to be sure. A simple and easy way to make sure you get down the correct facts and information.
A unit diary is somewhere to store notes of what you have done as an individual throughout the T.V units- a place to store evidence.
Three main questions to include:-
-What have I done?
-What have I learnt?
-What could I have done better?
Always show evidence.
Premiere Pro - The editing software for our filming pieces.
When creating a new project, always create in a DV – PAL Standard 48Htz as this is the only format it will recognise.
Import files form chosen folder and they will automatically be shown in the left hand work box also know as ‘the bin’. In the preview box, you can choose both the ‘in and out’ points of that specific video and to begin editing drag the piece into the timeline.
Rushes and roar footage (unedited material) can be left in the left side box for future purposes. Always save work, edited pieces and progress.
