Adobe Premiere Pro

In Inquiry with Mr Henderson, I learnt about Adobe Premiere it’s a  editing software for films that were going to produce this year. How to use abode premiere. First, wait for it to load, secondly, when it has loaded click on the new project or if your finishing something click on open project and find were you saved your project then double click and it should load. Thirdly once your in open a spare tab with the pictures or videos your want to put in the blog, drag them from the folder into the bottom of the screen where the timeline is and drop the file in there. lastly press space bar to play. This was how to get your footage in to Abode Premiere.

Helpful Tools:

  1. The razor tool. The razor tool is an important part of film making it allows you to cut out and bit of footage from anywhere in the timeline. How you use the razor tool is by clicking on the razor icon on the left hand side of the timeline you can highlight what you want to delete and then press backspace and it’s deleted. If you accidentally deleted something hold control Z and it should undo your last step.

2. The Type tool. The type tool is an important part of film making It allows you to type and display sentences in your movie. How you use the type tool is by clicking the capital T on the right side of the timeline and then click on the program and start typing. When your finished typing on the timeline there should be a pink bar on top of the video part that displays graphic on it. and then if you want to put it in a different scene drag it along until you have it where you want it. If it displays for too long hold the side and hold it and drag it inwards until it’s small enough. If it’s too small drag the pink further out until it’s long enough for your movie.


Wireless Mics

With Mr Henderson I learnt about wireless mics. The wireless mics that I learnt about was a handheld mic and a lapel mic. The lapel mic is called a lapel mic because the part that it normally clips on to the lapel on a blazer. A lapel and the handheld is used for a master shot or full shot because it can produce good audio at long distances. The way the lapel mic works is that the camera has the receiver and the mic has the transmitter. The transmitter is attached to the lapel by a wire that runs through your shirt and goes to the transmitter that is attached to tour pants  sends the audio to the camera. The way the handheld mic works is that there is only one pack and its the receiver that is on the camera because the handheld has it’s on build in transmitter.

These are the packs for the mics.

Shotgun Mics

With Miss Williamson I learnt about shotgun mics and how their audio is the best out of all the hand held equipment because the camcorders pick up background noise and all noise around them but with the shotgun mic where you point the mic it records good audio from 3 meters away. Shotgun mics are named shotgun mics because of the long slotted tube resembling a shotgun. What not to do with the shotgun mic,aim the mic towards a solid surface of the sound will bounce and may scuff the audio. Do use the shot gun in wind or when you replay the footage the audio will have a whistle sound because of the wind.

How put the shot gun mic on the camera.

Look on the top of the camcorder.

flip the latch on the top.

slide the bottom of the shot gun mic into the latch.

It should look like this.

There should be a cable with a plug at the end and then plug it in at the bottom of the camcorder.

After this slide the little button on the back of the mic in to the middle and there should be a green button then The mic should work.



Royalty Free Music

With Mr Galluccio I learnt that I cant use popular music in my films because of copy write. I can use other music to set the emotion for the scene like for a happy moment you can use jazzy music.

The music that my class had to find had to sound like star wars music, wonder music, titanic music and IT music.


Star Wars


I found the music but I didn’t want to download.


The Greatest Showman





Zoom Cameras

With Mr Henderson I learnt about zoom cameras. Zoom cameras aren’t good for zoom their zoom is average but it’s called a zoom camera because of the brand of camera. The zoom camera is used for it’s amazing audio. The zoom camera has good audio because of the giant mic at the back of the camera.

Underneath is the fluffy thing this is what the fluffy thing is. You see the fluffy thing covering the mic you are actually seeing several layers of airflow suppression. The mic’s typically used for windsock.

With Mr Henderson I also did 2 tongue twisters.




Camcorders and tripods

Mr Henderson

With Mr Henderson my class learnt about framing people one of the shots is the master shot where you can see the whole person from far away, full shot is where you can see the whole person from up close, medium shot is where you can see half the person, the close up is where its just his head an extreme close up is where it’s only his head but so close there is no background around him.

Audio booths

With Mr Galluccio I learned that audio booths can be fun and help out with work but there are rules. Max amount of people in the booth is 2 people, No food and leave the booth how you found it or pack up after yourself.

How to respect the equipment:

Never move the stand or the whole micro phone setup. After using the USB cable put it back neatly where you found it, after using the mic make sure before you leave that the mic is secure on the bench or it may fall off and break, respect it like it was yours.

How to use the equipment:

Use the head phones while recording, don’t touch or tap the mic while your talking because it may distort the mic. If speaking loud move a step back from the mic so you can hear what you say after the recording. After using the equipment don’t forget to unplug your USB cable before you try to listen to  the recording.


shortlists and storyboards

With Miss Williamson I learnt about shortlists and storyboards. I also learnt that 60% of the work to make a film is planning 30% editing and 10% production. This means planning is the most important part of film making because without planning people are unable to understand what to and what to say. When the  plan isn’t detailed enough you might miss a scene or sentence.

My class also learnt about story boards and shot lists.


Storyboards are Important for creating films. The way story boards work is you have to draw a comic that represents every shot and down the bottom are lines that your meant to write the first sentences of that shot. Storyboards are important because they save time, makes it easer to practice and act the role given in the film. This is what storyboards look like.

Shot lists:

Shot lists are important for making films but takes longer but it’s worth the work. Shot lists help with organization because It records what scene your on, type of shot, a rough guess of how long the scene is and the camera angle.

This is a shot list template.

Film School

In film school with miss Williamson my class learned about the rule of thirds. The rule of thirds is to imagen nine equal boxes. take your photo with the main image in one of the boxes. And this is how my group took our picture.

The bee in the flower is the main image that’s why it’s in the middle box.

With miss Williamson I leaned the balancing rule where I have the most important thing on the side then to balance the picture put something of less importance on the other side.

With miss Williamson I learned about leading lines where lines lead to the picture. This is the picture that my group took.

View point:

With miss Williamson I learned if I take a picture on the floor, high or against an object. It can have different effects. This is the picture My group took. My group took the picture against the tree.



With miss Williamson my class learnt about backgrounds Where the pictures important image is not affected from the background that means people are not distracted from the main image. This is the picture my group took.



With miss Williamson I learned that framing is important but what’s more important is to have a natural frame to isolate the main image from everything else. This is the picture my group took.
