evaluation Q7

Looking back at my preliminary task, what do I feel I have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?

One of the main things i have learnt is actually how much work it takes to get a film permit and that some  times its better to  risk it a little and go in head first. editing is easy when you have time so the sooner its filmed the better due to dead lines limiting the time.

evaluation Q6

What have I learnt about technologies from the process of constructing the product?

well this was really my first on location filming so one of the first things i had to learn to do was research and react to filming permissions on the Internet as well as having a further understanding with the camera itself, such as knowing what light will work and what wont. previous films i have made have been edited on i movie so final cut pro was all new to me, Ive still got a lot to learn but the basics are covered.

evaluation Q5

How did I attract/address my audience?

we decided to attract the audience with an opening sequance thats requires concentration and also to set the audience into a mood which will almost force them to continue watching the film with the slow eary start. as i have mentioned befor the economicle downfall in the world will also help the audience relate to the film.

evaluation Q4

Who would be the media audience for my media product?

the audience would defiantly be the older audience possibly from the late 20s to late 40s as those maybe the ages that would connect with the main character of the a man falling through the classes thanks to lack of funds, or possibly even relating with family problems as the character suffer separation with his family. A younger audience would probably not be as interested due to some may not understanding the situation and some simply not having the patients, however the title itself would defiantly not appeal to the younger audience as they may not have the patients to watch a rather slow mood making start

evaluation Q3

What kind of media institution might distribute my media product and why?

I would like to think that the film would be distributed by company's based in the UK such as the British film institute, however I think the film would be good for a television film distributed by company's such as the BBC or even film four, because all people could access the television and would probably suit more with the British audience because of the areas in England as well as identifying the social classes.

evaluation Q2

How does my media product represent particular social groups?

The opening sequence introduces a character well dressed with a suit and briefcase perhaps showing signs of a upper/middle class citizen, class is also shown through location with the travel around the canary wharf area possibly representing upper class and middle class thanks to the reputation of a wealthy finical district, however we also show times where almost everyone of every class may be found which is the shopping center where the suited character walks around, showing possible future of the character de-classing.

evaluation Q1

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

my media product forms the basic conventions of what a title sequence should consist of with showing certain key features of the film such as mise-en-scene, main character, etc while at the same time not giving too much away leaving the audience intrigued to find out what events will follow. scenes of London's skyscrapers famous for financial usage should hopefully give the audience a sense of what the films about, as well as images of a man in a suit and brief case(possibly the main character)and the individual reading the financial times should confirm to the audience the key theme of the film.
