Coursework Evaluation Question 4

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

Above is a collage of images representing all of the media technologies I used during the research, planning and evaluation stages of my media coursework, this was created using Adobe Photoshop CS2.

The media technologies both physical and digital we used includes the internet, telephone communications and computers with mouse, keyboard and desktop.

With these different new media technologies being available to us we have been able to execute our plans for some of the more technical aspects of our video and print production coursework.

This includes using the green screen technology in using Adobe Premier Pro 2.0 which was essential in the editing stages of our video. Also the advanced editing tools which were used using Adobe Photoshop CS2 to ensure of the best quality of image was achieved through careful editing.

Another factor of new media technology which was essential in the evaluation stages of my coursework was media 2.0. I was able to easily gain peoples comments by using social networking site 'Facebook' and through comments left of my video and print production work through my blog and 'YouTube'. This new media technology also enabled me to access a much wider number of people to give me their views without having to physically find them and therefore I will have a much more valid conclusion to the sucess of my video through many more opinions being recieved.

When caputring our images that we would use in our video coursework we had the luxury of being able to use HD cameras for this and therefore were able to prodcue a very high quality image and improve the overall quality of the video making it look much more professional.

Using google maps I was able to very easily obtain a map of my neighbours house and mine as in the research and planning stages this was necessary when expalining why it was so convenient that my actors live next door but one to my house. By using this service I was also able to give an accurate image and a more professional look in my research and planning stages.

I was also able touse a website called This was used by many students and offers many fonts that you can download and use in your coursework. This enabled us to pick a font which would represent our programme and give a unique aspect to it and creating a brand recognition. So through using this site with nerw fonts we were able to acheive this. and therefore without it we wouldve had to use a standard font which would be used by other people and give a less professional and quality look.
