What have you learnt about
technologies from the process
of constructing this product? Available Technologies Throughout the making of my media
product I have been introduced to new
technologies and through this have learnt
how to use them.
Sony DCR-VX2100E New technologies that I
have been introduced to... I began by learning the basics of the camera, basics of
the camera include:

Zooming in and out
Moving the camera through the use of panning
and tilting
White balance
Zebra setting White balance is a camera setting that adjusts lighting in order to make white objects appear
white on film. A good example of white balance working correctly, is for example, preventing a white bed sheet from looking orange when illuminated by a candle. By using the white balance I was able to ensure that my film gained the correct light and therefore kept verisimilitude, a key convention of the social realism genre. The zebra setting is a feature of professional cameras which gives an indication of exposure levels. When activated, diagonal lines appear across any part of the picture which is approaching over-exposure. By setting the zebra setting to 70% I was able to ensure that my characters face was gaining the correct light exposure within the close-up shot of my characters face. Avid Express Pro One of the main new technologies that I learnt while making my film
was how to edit using Avid Express Pro; through this I learnt many new skills
such as:

How to digitise my film onto a computer
How to to cut, mark in and mark out, and move sections of
my film about
How to add titles to my project either through the
use of 'Title Tool' or 'Marquee' Other New Technologies Throughout the making of my product I also had to create a blog and upload evidence of the planning section of my film and also my film intro itself, therefore I had to acquire the skills to do this as I had never created a blog before and so therefore had no clue as to how I would add pages and new posts. Blog: Vimeo: I also had to learn how to embed video into my blog as well as upload my video onto Vimeo so that it could be embedded. This overall process has taught me how to produce a product and then how to distribute it to my audience gaining me knowledge of both institutions and audiences. Problems? Within my media product I encountered a problem where my lighting was different in several shots due to the changing light conditions outside as my film was shot over several days and so therefore light conditions varied. To improve this while adding a stylistic feature to my film I decided to edit the colour of my film by using the Avid Colour Correction tool. I used this tool by using the Hue, Saturation and Luminance (HSL) section to change the brightness of the shot and the curves section to change the colour slightly. Problem? Solution?
