Today I will be telling you about the journey that I went making my zoo conservation film that I have made on the lion.
The first stage was doing the planning stage, this included making the choice of which animal we were going to do for this film, I chose the lion. Then the next stage was doing some researching on the internet to try and find some interesting facts about why the animal is critically endangered and become extinct, and also why they are such an awesome animal and what some interesting fact are about the animal are, and we had to start to write a script that would be voice overs in our films, the script had to have facts and we also had the try and make it so that the reader would be made to care about our animal .
Then in week 2 the whole of year 6 went to the zoo to get some footage of our animal and take some cool photos and videos of our animals in their enclosures. There were some difficulties that I had to work around, the main one being that the lions were asleep for most of the time that we were at the zoo so it was a bit hard to get some good quality images and videos of the lions walking around. And also I didn’t have much charge on my camera so I had to be extra carful with what I got shots of.
The next stage was the editing stage where we had to get all of the footage off the cameras and onto our computers, then we had to start culling our footage, which means deleting all of the footage that isn’t gold and that we weren’t going to use in our film, then we had to start sharing the footage with the rest of the people in our animal group, but out of 3 classes there was only 4 people that did the lion, but we were very lucky because Emma had some footage of lions when she went on a trip overseas, and that footage was so good. then we had to start putting all of the footage into corel. After we had finished that we had to record the voice overs, these were us reading our scripts into a microphone and having them in the background of our videos and images. In this stage we had to try and find some music that suited our film, to go in the background of the images, videos and the voice overs. Next we had to get some constructive feedback from our peers on what we could improve in our film, the main thing for me was to turn down the music because the audience couldn’t hear my voice. so I did that and I got some more feedback from 3 other people so say that it was a good film, then I was basically done with the editing stage.
the last stage is the feedback stage, where we went around and looked at other peoples videos and gave them positive feedback about the film, here is the feedback that I received,
