Week of Wednesday 1st March
So when we started on Wednesday Dan explained what we had to do and the best way it could be done so when I got back to my desk I had to think of both my idea’s and try and decided what one I wanted to use I decided to go with The Dream so basically it’s about a boy named Josh and he goes to sleep and dreams about so many different things from being rich to then becoming his sister I wasn't really sure how to put it all in writing as paper side of projects aren’t my strong point so because Wednesday isn’t really a long day so all I was able to do was think of my idea and write it up with some notes on docs. I wasn’t feeling so good on Thursday so I didn’t come in. on Friday after thinking more about my idea and knowing what I want to do I started and finished my Proposal I will still need to add stuff to it throughout the project but the first few sections are completed again Friday isn’t a long day so that was all I got done during that day.
Week of Wednesday 8th March
On Wednesday we came in and Dan told us to go down and take a look around the the astroturf where they had people come in to help us decided what we wanted to do once we finished our 2 year course,So me and some other from level 3 went and looked at the media part where Steve explained what we could do if we carried on with media after level 3 we could do a university course here at the college after that we came back to the mac bay and carried on with our FMP work I started to create my blogs and wrote about my idea in more detail unfortunately I lost it and had to start over again then I did some more work to prepare for my pitch on Friday where I will have to explain my idea and get feedback to my fellow classmates on the Thursday we came in and had be split into 3 groups for pitching so each class was split up while the first class was in presenting their idea the rest of us had to work on our pitch. For mine I had a few slides explaining how I would film and a brief description of what it’s about I looked at a few different things then finished it off ready for my pitch on Friday. Friday morning I had to do my pitch and the luck for me was some people turned up late so I only had to present it in front of 5 people 6 including Dan it was difficult to present because as much as I like talking when it comes to talking in front of groups of people I find it hard I knew from the start it wouldn’t go to well as the idea I had wasn’t strong enough at all but with the help of other people and the things people had suggested I can try improve my idea and make it more practical that was all we did on Friday so that was the end of my week.
Week of Wednesday 15th March
On Wednesday we just carried on with our FMP work and got some more of that completed I carried on working on my proposal and getting it all done and complete after I finished some more of that I started to watch a few different videos that had been suggested to me from when I did my Pitch,as Michelle wasn’t in that day we had Scott in between both classes so I was there just watching the videos to get some inspiration for my idea I then had taken down a few notes ready to write about on the Thursday then we finished up.Thursday once we came in and logged on we carried on with whatever we had to do so I started to write about the Research I had completed I wrote about the videos and films I watched so I said what part of the video inspired me and how it was set out on the video. Unfortunately I forgot I was limited to what we could write about in our proposal so me and a few other spoke to Scott and he said how we could change it and what we could do so for example one part should only been 200 words but I wrote over 400 so then I had to cut it down to the very basic and I was aloud to move the rest of it into a different document so as I wrote so much I didn’t want to lose any of it.even though it is clearly shown we shouldn’t do over what was given but after I started writing I didn’t really keep track of it. After all that was corrected it was time to finish.
Week of Wednesday 22nd March
On Wednesday when we came in we found out that we had received our feedback/referral work for the interactive unit. Personally I didn’t think we was going to do good that I was going to get a lot of referral’s but I was surprised to see I only got two little bits to do The problem I had was I didn’t do the audio part in my group as because we didn’t have anyone speaking it was just background music we left it to one person to complete so that is something I have to redo after our break I went and helped Emily and Joe in F80 with getting some test shots with the lighting so it was Joe sat on the floor and Emily wanted the light to be shining on him to make him and only him stand out so if the light was too bright then it wouldn’t worked correctly so it had taken some time but we finally worked out what she wanted done and how the lighting worked with her shot. It had taken up most of the last half of our lesson so soon as we finished we came back in and Michelle said we could leave.Unfortunately I wasn’t very well on Thursday but I thought through my idea a bit more from home to improve it.when we came in Friday Dan said there was workshop going on for scripts It’s not something I was interested in so I didn’t go to it instead I stayed in class to complete the referral work and do my Weekly blog.
