Capture

Today we looked at what needs to go on a front cover of a book. our task was to thing of what needs to go on a cover and stick them on the wall. Then we had to design three layouts for our front covers. Also we had to come up with the title, author name, tag lines and the images we are going to use for our story covers. in Alma’s session we looked at three different types of book covers and design our own book covers using illustration, photography and collage.

week five tuesday- 02/02/16

Today we looked at how Foley created sound effects to go with a film and we had to choose a clip that Dave showed us and in a group of three we had to create our own sounds for the clip. Also we research about Foley’s work and what skills they needed. Then after we choose our clip we had to collect our props before we recorded all the different sound to go with the Charlie Chaplin clip. After we recored our sounds we used Adobe premier to add the sounds to the clip. Then we had to see what  sounds we needed for our story and how we are going to make the sounds.

Foley research

it recreates sound effects for film and television production. People uses different types of shoes and props for examples, glasses. Foley matches the sound effects to the motion pictures. The sounds aren’t cut in with the film.

week five -monday 01/02/16

Today we looked at a film about stop montion and the creative process.Then we had to decide on what part of our story is going to be the 30 seconds. My stop motion of my story is where they stare into the distance looking at the flashing lights because they are standing still and thinking should they follow the light. This is going to be in the middle of the story because it is after they walk into the forest. I also was expanding my story to help me decide where the stop motion of my film is going to be. I choose the middle of the story because they are standing in the middle of the forest and looking at the flashing lights and the shadows and they are thinking that should they go through the forest to see where the light is leading them to. I put it in the middle because they are in the forest where it is dark and gloomy forest and they see the bright light and the shadow but what would they do next? I was planning out what my stop motion is going to look like when it has been created and what materials i need to use and the location. Presentation2-stop motion. Also we were designing a poster to support the LGBT people in the world and where they can go to for help in the college and outside the college. here are some links that i found for people to get help:

Week four-wednesday 27/01/16

Today I broke down my synopsis into different parts by highlighting the parts and I am going to expand on them to help me set the layout for my story. the next thing that I need to do is expand on my story. In alma’s session we carried on doing our storyboard by using the templates we were given and building up our story ready for it to be filmed later on in the term. when I was doing my layout for my story I use different techniques to make some of the story look spooky.

Work

A damp wooden house with an eerie ghost sound echoing through the dark gloomy house… But where is the eerie ghost sound coming from? There is the sound of breaking glass. They hear a sound that triggers a past that is running through their minds. But who is it? Ever since their mum died. They go back on that day. Should they carry on going through the house and seeing more shadows?   The door slammed opened, but the shadow was gone when they turned their backs. But was it someone they knew? Who are the shadows? They have managed to escape into the forest. The light is fading; there is no way to escape out of the forest.

They are walking through the cold dark scary forest when they see bright flashing lights. But what are the bright lights shining at? Is the shadow animal or a person? They won’t find this out until they get closer to the flashing lights and see the shadow more clearly. But when they reach the end of the flashing light. The shadow has disappeared. But where has it gone?   Was it someone from their past talking to them through the rustling trees?   Something is coming and there is no escape. What are they going to do next? Will they live or not? Do they have any help or not? What happens if they get separated? Will they find each other in the forest?

My story that I started expanding

A damp wooden house with a loud eerie ghost sound that is echoing through the dark gloomy house which is horrible and smells like a dead rat. But where is the eerie ghost sound coming from?  There is the sound of breaking glass. the glass has smashed into different tiny pieces  They hear a sound that triggers a past that is running through their minds.
