Week 7 – Unit 2: Editing Software Research

Today we’ve been told to research into something to do with Editing. Editing is one of my favourite things to do with Film & TV, so I feel I would talk about the various different editing software’s: from the basics to the more advanced ones and what they entail within each of them.

Week 5 & 6 – Unit 2: Production Research Plan & Project

Within this session, we’ve been looking at Production Research to do with Film & TV. In particular for this post, I’ll mainly be focusing on TV and will be reverse engineering a TV show to extract the details within the production and find out where specific things could be rented or hired for the show.

Week 4 – Unit 2: Research Plan on Camera Technology

Within this week, the focus is on Cameras. In particular, I wanted to do a research plan on the technology side of cameras. In particular, different lenses, the different types of cameras (the history of them), what’s current with quality/sizing and the future of cameras in my opinion.

Week 3 – Unit 2: Research Plan on Foley Sound

Today we’ve started our session with Foley Sound. Foley sound is sound that is used within Film & TV. Foley sound (for anyone curious) is sound that is used within Film & TV as “real life sound effects”. This can be anything from a door creaking open to the thudding of someone falling over.

Week 2 – Unit 2: Research Plan Lighting

Within this week, we’ve been asked to create a research plan to do with Lighting. Whilst coming up with some ideas as a group, I’ve decided to narrow it down to either:

  1. Equipment (The current different types of lighting available).
  2. Physicality of Lighting (The aspects and where to place them).
  3. Film & Lighting within Film (One genres).

Personally, I feel that I would much prefer to learn the different types of lighting needed for one specific genre of film – Horror.
