Mission: Raises awareness for the Tassie Devil. Accomplished.Wait, don’t leave, you haven’t read this yet! It’s not ‘Promoting Geelong’ anymore. It’s ‘Raising Awareness For the Tassie Devil’. It’s different, trust me. Anyway, let me tell you the story… Wait! Don’t leave. I told you, it’s not the same…
Back then, about, I don’t know, the start of term 4? Meh, who cares. Our teachers, showed us SOS10 list:
- Baw Baw Frog
- Lord Howe Island Stick Insect
- Philippines Crocodile
- Western Low Land Gorilla
- Asian Elephant
- Australian Fur Seal
- Tasmanian Devil
- Helmeted Honey-Eater
Hence my title, I chose the Tasmanian devil.
After the choosing of our animals, we started researching about it, and then wrote our scripts. Our film was supposed to go for 1 minute 30, to 2 minutes, so then our script was supposed to go for about. A minute. Supposed to. Mine went for about, a 2 minutes. Including my P.T.C, piece to camera.
Finally, our scripts were finished, our job now, was to film. We prepared our cameras and set of to:
To film. Obviously, I went to the Tasmanian Devil enclosure. The devil was either sleeping, or doing stuff in it’s little log house. It never came out. Only for me. That’s sounded a bit weird. I was doing my piece to camera, and then… THE TASMANIAN DEVIL CAME OUT!!! I repeat, THE TASMANIAN DEVIL CAME OUT!!! Did I make my self clear? THE TASMANIAN DEVIL CAME OUT!!! Do you need to hear that again? THE TASMANIAN DEVIL CAME OUT!!!
The next day, we came back and dumped our footage onto our laptops. And started editing. Editing was nice and easy, got the voice-overs, some footage of the internet, and that’s it, then I started putting this together. 3 sessions later, I finished my first draft. We then got feedback from 5 people. We then had to action our feedback. All I had to do is get better footage and some music. Easy. After that I had finished my final product.
Finally, I finished my FINAL product (I know, I’ve mentioned that already). Final product. I got a lot of feedback for my final product. Here it is:
