Reconstructions Traditional interview conventions

Mid shot
Interviewee to the left hand side We try addopt the same approach by doing the same through mid shots and the interviewee poitioned to the left.
Audio features include not hearing the interviewers question and music in the background whilst there is a voice over or in the interview. Challenging traditional forms

Along with using the traditional documentary forms we have also challeged them by...

As we wanted our documentary to be be more conventional we decided not to chanallege any of the documentary forms.

The technologies we used Apple macs *

Word* Througout the contruction of our documentary we used a variety of technologies in order to help us complete our task. Apple macs- we used these to import and edit all our footage along with record the voice overs.
The macs come with a software called Imovie which enabled us to do all aspects of the editing process very easily as importing, editing and recording voice overs were all within the same software.
Cameras-We used one particular type of camera that was small and compact that recorded good quality footage. It alows the use of a tripod making filming steady shot much easier.
Tripod-Using the triod was very beneficial as it allowed us to film steady panning shots whilst we were in London. YouTube-We used Youtube to get our archive footage from as this gave us a good choice of videos to choose from. We then used a youtube video converter to enable us to use and edit on the Macs.
Da font- this was a site that allowed us to use a variety of fonts to make our ancilaary pieces look more attractive.
Blogger-We used blogger to record what we have been doing whilst creating our documentary. Blogger allows us to post what we have been doing in the form of text, photos and videos. Websites we used
Paint-I used paint to edit some of the images that I was using for part of my supporting piece. It allowed me cut the image and fill in certain areas.
Publisher-Publisher was used for another supporting piece. I used this in the magazine article as I could easily move the text around and choose where i position all the pictures starting from a blank publication.
Word-Microsoft word was used to write out the article we created for the magazine and to also not down any ideas we had for our documentary. Windows programmes 2012-Dream or Nightmare? Audience Feedback
As part of our audience feedback we showed our production to some students in our school and asked them questions.
We learnt that based on the answers we got from the questions we asked that we rarely challenge any documenatry forms and we confirmed them very well through montage shots, interviews, music and espicially slowed down shots to emphasise a point. Many of the students said they enjoyed the documentary and thought the target audience was anyone who would be interested in the Olympics. Another question we asked the audience was what areas of the documentary could have been improved? The audience thought that areas of the audio could have been improved as some of the voice overs were too loud so they needed to be adjusted. Also some shots were too shaky so they needed to be stabilised
Both of the ancillary pieces that I created relate to Sam Sturt which is highly focused on in the documentary.
As a group we created the magazine article together and separately I created a Bilboard.
Magazine article
Through the magazine article just shown we tried to convey that Sam Sturt is one of Britain's best hope (or the only hope) of getting a Gold when it comes to 2012. We have done this by interviewing him and focusing on aspects such as his chances of getting Gols when it comes to 2012 and his typical training regime.
In addition to this we had to focus on the documentary too; so issues around whether the Olympics will be a success is discussed as well.
Therefore this piece focuses on an interview with Sam Sturt and his chances of competing when it comes to 2012.
The piece that I created separately is a billboard advertising the documentary . I think from the billboard the message is clear on what it portrays as there are Olympic rings in the background and Sam Sturt going through the process of a flip. With the text of “London 2012-Dream or Nightmare?” it shows that the documentary is discussing whether the 2012 Olympics will have be a positive or negative affect on London.
As this supporting piece is advertising the documentary I have included when it will be screened on T.V. Our class had decided to make a fictional television station called DocuTV where our documentary is being shown on the 26th May.

We have used the typical codes and conventions of an interview in our documentary by having the interviewee placed to one side and him looking away from the camera
