Question 6: What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this project?

As I had worked with most of the hardware and software before, I found it quite easy to use. The only difficulties I had were figuring out some settings on the digital camera, which did not prevent me from filming what was needed.

What have I learnt?
It is important to always save the project. Due to malfunctions with software and alot of transferring between programmes it was very easy to lose work. Luckily, when we did, the changes were easy to restore.

Placing the camera in  the right place is vital. Many shots needed perfect framing, which was hard to get. The tripod came in quite handy for these, as it allowed us to get the camera in the exact position that we needed it.

How to use different programmes properly, such as LiveType and Adobe Flash. Before this project, I didn't know a lot about Adobe Flash but I'd like to think I would be confident to use it in future projects.

The importance of creativity. All our ideas worked well and I'm really happy with the Impact Films and BFE Production titles. These are original ideas, which make the sequence individual. Most of all the BFE title makes the whole sequence look slightly more professional, but the Impact Films connotes the edgy brand that we were aiming for.
