  • How Did you research your preliminary task ?
  • How did you plan you preliminary brief ? And how was your main task planning better than that ?
  • What was advice for your improvements on the preliminary task ? How did you make you main task better ?

Why was the main task more difficult than the preliminary task ?

We had to come up with our own ideas, shots and actual concept E.G

How did you research your preliminary brief ? Why was your task research better ?

Lost Highway - Mystery Man

Above is the only research i had done for my preliminary task, this is because we only had to replicate the actuall video. We did not have to come up with our own plot, concept, ideas, music etc.

Where as....

In my main task we had to do a lot more research.

During our main task project we had to analyse title sequences:

We had to show our understanding of the prodcution process:

We also had to show our understanding of each frame in a title sequence:


Music was a very important part of our title sequence as this told the audience how to feel and what to do at that moment in time. Therefore we had to do do our music research in depth.

For example a strong brass piece of music will connote that the movie is to do with heros, as we assosiate brass to bravery and authority.

How did you plan your preliminary task ? Why was your main task planning better than that ?

We had planned when to meet with the actors at a certain place and a certain time. We had shot our preliminary task using the video as our base/foundation. We had no set plan, concept or creative shots in our product. We had just followed the shots exactly how it was shown in the 'Lost Highway' clip.

What was advice for improvements of preliminary task ? How did you make your main task video better ?

In my preliminary task my advice for improvements were:


Ambient noise- This is because during the filming our extra laughed, which took the audiences attention away from what was going on.

Error with shots- When filming we had broke the 180 degree rule, which had an effect on continuity.

Below will be an example on Ambient noise and the 180 rule
