Media Coursework- Final Film Trailer

Published April 20, 2012 by Shanice Butler A2 Media Studies

Here is a link to my video on my YouTube Channel >

Despite my problems with the available editing software, I have finally been able to produce something that I am pleased with because I was able to use Premier Pro well, making use of the many video transitions and effects so that the whole piece flowed and that the timing fitted with the dramatic music I decided to use. The overall process was difficult yet I learnt a good range of things related to premier pro such as how I could reflect the fantasy genre and the narrative. Since the beginning I feel the coursework also developed my personal skills and I can now produce a piece of filming and then edit it confidently.


Media Coursework- Film Trailer Draft

Published March 16, 2012 by Shanice Butler A2 Media Studies

Here is my first draft of my Film Trailer. Unfortunately their is no sound apart from a sound clip of which I downloaded from a website called http://www. It enables you to use a range of different sound effects to help create your trailer such as foot steps in leaves and wind. I received some of my inspiration from the existing trailer above and was hoping to use parts of the soundtrack once I had manage to overcome my sound problem. Hopefully for the final piece I will be able to do this. Overall I believe that I had made quite a good start and kept up the pace by cutting and shortening the clips.

Media Coursework Evaluation Questions

To fully evaluate my Media products for the G324 Coursework I have to answer the following questions.


In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real life media products?

How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

What have you learned from your audience feedback?

How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

Media Coursework- Filming Screen shots

Published January 16, 2012 by Shanice Butler A2 Media Studies

For my film trailer, I have produced the storyboards and directed the filming myself. Here are some of the main shots from my film. The first image is my main character running and is the first shot of the trailer. I have focused on the bottom half and her legs to show she is running and I thought a tracking shot would be a good way of introducing the film. For this particular section I used a tripod to ensure the followed movement was steady.

The shot below is a close up of my characters scared facial expressions. I have made this a slow shot as she walks away from the camera and as she is moving, her hair sweeps round  to make it more dramatic and gives the shot a more tense atmosphere.The next series of shots were from the same take. I decided to use a 36O degrees shot that circles the Villain and heroine from the film to suggest they will have a confrontation. To create the shot below, I layed on the ground with the camera looking up to make it look as if she is standing on top of a cliff and throwing the necklace off it. I believe this was successful as it did create a sense of her being somewhere high up and the day when I had chosen to film was fairly windy, It caused her hair to move which helped create the intended effect.

Media Coursework- Filming

Published November 21, 2011 by Shanice Butler A2 Media Studies

 I have now filmed my film trailer and I think it went quite well however after watching it back, even though I feel I have managed to include a range of shots like it has asked me on the checklist, there is a point where I have accidentally filmed  some unwanted things which are in the background like bags and a tripod, where I have rotated my camera around my characters to create a confrontation; so I will need to deffinately cut that out. I have used a tripod to support my camera and to make sure I don’t have a ‘shakey camera’ as this is not the type of film I would like to create and plus makes it much more professional. The Camera i used was one of the Canon video cameras. I found it quite easy to use but it required me actually looking at the instructions to know how to use it properly.

I enjoyed the filming part of this coursework and playing director for the day but it was deffinately hard work and I found out some problems such as trying to find the perfect shot and the positioning of the camera. I had to also do quite abit of tracking by following my characters to get the tracking shots. Hopefully it will end up  the way I imagined it and able to get in some good effects off the Adobe premier pro software.
