Transcript: Editing - Photos Editing For our digipak and album poster we want to use photoshop as it is a good editing format for pictures to add images and font onto them. I have watched youtube tutorials on how to use photoshop to familiarise myself with it as we have not used it before since we mostly create moving images for our media coursework. Another software i could use is Microsoft Publisher which, again, i am not familiar with but I have seen being used as an editing software for posters and magazine covers before, making it something I would like to look into for creating our print ancillary pieces. Photoshop do also have an app that they created in 2010 which would make it very easy for me to update our pieces when i need to whether it is on my phone or iPad. This technology convergence of computer editing software and smartphones is a very effective and successful innovation making it easier for me to use as it is also a lot simpler than the online software. This can be good Make up We will most likely be including make up in our music video. It will be neither extravagant or special effects make up as our narrative is more about a depressed girl in a real life situation that could happen. The make up we would use would be to make our actress look more dull and 'scruffy' in a way as she is meant to be portrayed as though she is in a bad place in her life. This make up would be a pale powder and black smudged eyeliner or eyeshadow. Last year we used iMovie to edit our trailer as that was the software available in the media room, this year we hope to use Final Cut Pro X. Final Cut is a lot more advanced and has more transitions, edits and titles we can work into our music video; I will install this on most likely my laptop for us to use and edit our video on. iMovie is very easy to use and we are very used to it after using it for the past 3 years in Media, it is still a good editing software but I think our video will look a lot more professional and smooth on a more advanced editing software like Final Cut. We want our video to have continuity as last year, our opening did not have this in certain parts because some shots had different lighting. On a better software, we hope to have more continuity and be able to fix these issues that we had last year. Camera Sound The main sound of the music video will be the song itself, there will rarely be strays from this non diegetic sound unless we want to add verisimilitude to our video. If we want to have diegetic sounds of the streets and wind we could either take this from the recording of the shots or use sound effects on the editing software or a downloading site for sound effects. Using this combination technique is quite popular in pop-folk music videos and especially Ed Sheeran songs. It is used a lot at the end of the video when the song ends and there is a new equilibrium, they use the realistic sounds to bring the audience back to real life and the actual narrative of the video instead of the song. This is something we would like to include in our project. After using my own camera last year to film our moving image, we decided it was a better decision than using the camera college provide. They would often leave parts blurry and change lighting on different shots, so we decided to use the Nikon D5600 that i have at home and we saw it worked a lot better. We did have some issues with that camera; we didn't really have a lot of knowledge on it and how to use it and adjust the settings etc. It has auto focus and auto lighting which made some of the shots look different and a little worse quality. We will also be using a tripod to ensure our shots are steady and professional. If we choose to incorporate handheld shots to add a feel of realism and persona to the camera we will just use the camera or maybe even a smaller, handheld, mobile tripod. Lighting Last year we relied mostly on the natural lighting of street lights and indoor lights to create the right key of lighting we wanted. This year, as we are creating a music video, we will more likely be using more artificial light as that is more conventional to music videos to use coloured lights and LED lights. It will also allow us to emphasise certain parts of the shot, for example, placing a filler light near the actors face to make that the main subject and draw audiences attention. Technical Research

Transcript: The back light is placed behind the subject and lights it from the rear. Rather than providing direct lighting (like the key and fill), its purpose is to provide definition and subtle highlights around the subject's outlines. This helps separate the subject from the background and provide a three-dimensional look. A camera shot including space around A camera shot including Eyes only The main focus of a scene or in a photo graph is usually placed in the intersections of theses lines on this photo it is where the 4 white spot is. objects placed in the intersection is usually where the audience puts their focus on. Birds eye view This is the secondary light and is placed on the opposite side of the key light. It is used to fill the shadows created by the key. The fill will usually be softer and less bright than the key. To achieve this, you could move the light further away or use some spun. You might also want to set the fill light to more of a flood than the key. A camera shot including chin to top of head Low angle Medium close up This rule is used during filming, an imaginary straight line is constructed where the character is, on the photo above it is the dotted line. It is recommended that the camera should only place on one side of the line, by doing this will bring less confusion to the audience where it might lead to characters switching places. Equipments Camera shot Extreme low angle Technical research Big close up What did we researched about? Camera angle This is the main light. It is usually the strongest and has the most influence on the look of the scene. It is placed to one side of the camera/subject so that this side is well lit and the other side has some shadow. A camera shot including knees to top of head Long shot High angle Dollies A camera shot including waist to top of head Camera Lighting and sound Sounds 180 degree rule Medium long shot Technical skills Rules Lighting & Sound Equipments Rules of thirds H4N Three point Lighting Rules Back Light Shotgun Mic Tripod A camera shot including shoulders to top of head Medium close up Big close up Slider Fill Light Extreme long shot A camera shot including neck to top of head A camera shot including the full body Technical skills Diegetic sound: Sound within the world of film, these are sound that the actors can hear Non-diegetic sound: Sound added in post-production, these are sound that the actors cannot hear. Sound bridge: Sound which crosses from one shot or scene to another Sound motif: A sound effect or combination of sound effects that are associated with a particular character, setting, situation or idea through the film Dialogue: Its a speech of 2 or more person it is usually used in a conversation. Ambient sound: background noise present in a scene e.g. birds tweeting Direct address: actor speaking to the camera Mode of address: How the film speaks to the audiences Foley sound: sound effects that are added in production such a footsteps, a punch, creaking floorboard.

Firstly, it is the task of public channels to be objective However, Christian broadcasting companies get enough monetary support to be on the public channel Still, there are enough alternatives for Christian television The EO (Evangelic Broadcaster) is able to reach the minimum of 150.000 paying members Christian television programs on Dutch public channels Geertje van Raak Monetary support "Mediapriest" Roderick Vönhogen On the three public channels, Christian programs are broadcast regularly Objectivity Three public channels (NPO 1, NPO2, NPO3) Commercial channels Regional/local channels Public media services have to offer a program that is "balanced, multifaceted, varied and of high quality and is also characterized by a great diversity in form and content" (Dutch Media Law article 2.1) Public channels need to offer a varied, objective and independent perspective Despite the fact that the monetary support is there, there are plenty of alternatives Conclusion Works Cited Alternatives 13 regional broadcasters More than 300 local channels Although Christian broadcasting companies have enough monetary support to broadcast on the public channel, they seem out of place amongst secular television shows, because public channels should be objective and have no religious influence, and there are enough small channels for those who still want to watch religious television.

Transcript: When you are editing a horror film, you need to make sure there's some use of jump cuts, as this will create tension towards the audience. You also need to think about the use of sound, and whether it fits in with the scene and that you haven't just put some random sounds over the clip. If you have re-filmed the voice in a studio, you will need to make sure that it fits with the movement of the person's mouth and that it is synced correctly. We will use Final Cut Pro to edit our production. We can use the shotgun microphone on its own, or we can attach the microphone to the boom pole. If you are filming outdoors, then its best to use a dead cat, as this will act as a windshiled. Lighting Skills Knowing the rules of light, when dealing with photography, you can use it to your advantage. For example, in a lot of horror films, there are scenes where it is very dark, underexposed, this creates tension and suspense for the audience. We can achieve this by changing the shutter speed and the apature. Also the use of coloured gels can be effective, as this can also make the audience feel unnerved. For lighting in a horror film, there needs to be darkness, you can achieve this by limitting your light sources. You should have harsh lighting in a horror film as this will create a violent and also ambiguous effect, which is good for a horror film, so you don't want to use soft boxes or anything that will soften the light. Editing Skills Filming Skills When you are filming, you need to make sure that your location is suitable for what is happening in the scene and that the lighting is also suitable. If you are filming indoors, this is good as you can control the light more then outdoors. When you are filming, you need to think about the mise-en-scene, camera shots, angles and movements, for example you are best to use a dolly and not your hands when you want a partciular movement, as if you are to use your hands, it will come out rather shaky. To achieve smooth shots when using the dolly you will need to make sure that the dolly is placed on smooth flooring or if you don't have a dolly, you can buy some furniture sliders, you can then stick them onto a tripod and then you'll be able to move smoothly on carpet. If you have a dolly, then you can place a piece of plywood down onto the floor and then move the dolly on the plywood and the shots will be smooth. According to Jason Blum, if you can tell the story in a traditional way, you shouldn't tell it in a found footage way, this is his number one rule. His second rule is that the person with the camera has to have a reason for filming what they are filming. His third rule is that 'you must have a plan, e.g. you can't just hand your actor a camera'. In other words you need to explain to them what it is they have to do, for instance, you still need to people to act scared and genuine. We will try to achieve the found footage effect without the audience feeling ill, by having some of the found footage scenes filmed on a tripod, so the shots are stable and other scenes will be filmed handheld so it looks more like found footage. We will also use a stabilizer for the found footage scenes, this will seem like someone is holding the camera by itself, although it won't seem as shaky as a handheld camera, it will seem more stable, so again, the audience won't feel sick. Sound Equipment This tutorial is very descriptive on how to use final cut pro and simple to understand as the man goes through each step on how to use it quite slowly. For this tutorial, it is a shorter video compared to the video above, and it is slightly easier to follow and understand as the man speaking doesn't talk a lot, but he gives you step by step information on how to use final cut. These two videos will help us to edit our production. This is one video on YouTube that explains how to use coloured gels. The man in the video explains that you can literally just clip a coloured gel to the 'barn doors' of the light and it will change the colour of the light. However, if you have an LED light with different gels, then you can just change the colour by clipping it onto the light. Technical Research How to do Found Footage These are the instructions for the H4n with the shotgun microphone.

Transcript: Religiosity is associated with expectations for marriage and divorce by young single adults and adolescent (Ellison, Burdette and Glenn 2011; Kapinus and Pellerin 2008). Specifically, within the United States, there is a density of religious networking that encourages positive life choices and relationships (Smith 2003). Conclusion Data and Methods Church attendance is associated with a reduction in perceived barriers to marriage (Burdette, Haynes and Ellison 2012), Conceptualize Because of the innate function of religion in a society, political front-runners, community leaders and concerned social leaders alike encourage marriage as a social institution to be saved, and in doing so, saving the tool of religious and moral transfer (Brotherson and Duncan 2004; Ogland and Hinojosa 2012). Religiosity's Effect on Views of Matrimony Questions? Next time... -Stronger scale Implications - As the definition of marriage continues to evolve, we know strength levels of religious affiliation impact it's evolution. Contributions - To the study of the relationship between religion and marriage. - To existing studies on the social factors involved in opinion development. Future Research - Use specific affiliations Hypothesis:There is a positive relationship between a person’s religiosity and their views on marriage. Data and Methods Theory - General Social Survey, 1988 I propose that self-reported highly religious individuals will have a higher regard for marriage as a union. Discussion Result (Linear Regression) - Response rate: 77.3% - Sample Size: 1481 The two concepts in this study are religiosity and marital views. Religiosity - independent variable is defined as the individuals own perception of their strength in their religious affiliation, whatever it may be. Marital views - dependent variable is defined an individual’s personal regards of marriage as a union in society. Prior Research 2 out of 5 hypothesis were supported Strengths and Weaknesses
