EVALUATION 8- Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learned in the progression from it to the full product?

Before doing our thriller, or creating our thriller we made an opening to a prelim. The purpose of the prelim was to get us prepared on how to actually do our thriller, it gave us a taste on how it is to use the camera equipment, final cut pro etc. Overall the prelim was enjoyble with my peers, their was great team work, but looking over it we did make a lot of mistake and due to limited time we did mess up a bit like the sound etc.

For both of the thriller opening and the prelim we planned out what we are going to do, like what we are going to need, we brainstormed on a sheet of paper every one contributed to their thoughts and what they through might make it interesting and good.

For both films the next step was we had to do a story board, we all created a story board and wrote down the different shots we are going to be using and how.

Then for our prelim we created an animatic by using jelly babies.
The sound in our prelim was pretty basic but creepy, it stays the same through out. It did work well but we do believe if we had the time we could of choose something better. For our actual thriller we did have time to chose the music, it went very well with our thriller we did have enough time.
The Mise-en-scene for our prelim was in college in the toliets (where she washes her hand), the class room (where the body is). For our actual thriller the setting was in one of my peers house, we filmed in the bathroom, bed room, kitchen and living room (that was where the body was) prelim and thriller little bit idenical when it comes to the dead body. Props we used for our prelim is blood, for our thriller the prop we used was wig, cups, etc.

The sound that was used for our prelim was diegetic which was the chacter saying 'NOO!' and also non diegetic which was the music at the background. For our thriller we didnt use any diegetic sound we only used non diegetic

For editing in our prelim we used slow motion. But for our thriller we used transitions.

For both we used different camera shots like close up, mid shots, over the shoulder shot, point of view shot etc.

Here are the same two shots from our prelim and final film. theses shots are showing how our final film shot is better than the prelim film.
















Everyone was organised, we realised that if one person didnt turn up it would of been a devastaster, but forturnately everyone did turn up on tim, team work was excellent everyone participated. From the prelim i have learnt a lot and it was a fantastic experience. And also making the actual thriller was very exciting and watching it on a big screen. All our hard work became successful.
