Final film opening - Elephant Juice

Preliminary Exercise

I just noticed this isn't my finished preliminary exercise as the background sound in this version from neighbouring classrooms hasn't been edited out but hopefully it will be up on Youtube in the next few days so I can embed the finished version.

Evaluation Question 7

This is just an image of the mindmap I created using as I couldn't get the embed code to work but it will hopefully be up tomorrow!

Disaster strikes... :(

Unfortunately we found out last week that we had lost ALL of our editing because there was an issue with the hard drive. Of course at first Zoe, Jess and I were panicking but we realised that nothing could be done and we'd just have to accept it! Fortunately, I had backed up all the original footage on my memory stick so it's not like we have to start completely from scratch... (note to self, back up EVERYTHING!) We have however lost 2 scenes which we will need to re film when we come in over Easter to redo our edit. Hopefully now we've all had quite a lot of practice with the editing it won't take us too long to redo everything as we have made a plan of everything that needs to be done... Organisation is key!

Glitter Storm

So today we were discussing names for our production company and eventually decided on Glitter Storm Productions! We all really liked the idea of making it with actual glitter so that's what we experimented with next. Firstly we had the idea of writing Glitter Storm on a page in glue, then sprinkling glitter all over it, tapping off the excess to reveal the words Glitter Storm written in glitter.

However, this idea didn't really work out so instead we used a page of A3 black paper, covered it in glitter then filmed the words Glitter Storm being written into it. As you can see from the image I took, this idea also didn't work as there wasn't enough contrast between the black paper and the dark purple glitter so the words were not readable. 

So to resolve this we tried it on white paper and it worked brilliantly!
