Important Evaluation Questions:
6. Looking back at your preliminary task (the continuity editing task), what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to full product?
- From our filming sessions we have learn a lot of different techniques, which make a film interesting and unique. There are loads of different techniques that we used within our film, for example:
• Fade in / out shot
• Shot reverse shot
• 360 degree rule
…and many more. We have learnt how to go from basic straight filming to making a film to a professional level, the preliminary tasks helped a lot with this as it acted as a guide line for our filming; we used it as a list we simply followed the list every time we needed a new filming technique.
Filming techniques have to be used when making a film; they add tension, drama and intensity.
Without filming techniques films become boring and useless for the audience, films are made for one purpose…to entertain, and with a film that lacks drama there is no point in spending money producing a film that sends its audience to sleep.
