  • Absolutely no food
  • Leave no evidence that you were ever there
  • Leave the microphones on the bench at all times
  • Make sure the microphone and stand are secure
  • Keep the runway clear
  • Don’t knock on the door
  • Most voiceover tasks will take you no more than 5 minutes
  • Always use headphones when recording and playing back audio
  • Don’t touch the microphone while recording
  • If you re speaking loudly move back slightly
  • You may need to unplug the USB when playing back the audio I all so learnt how to put the microphones on and off

and one is the receiver that the camera  where’s then you have to put the little mic thing on you just clip it on then you have to tern it on you click the button that is a circle

than we got into groups and put the mics on and all that some mistakes that you may make is you put the wrong mic on my group made this mistake, you could to forget to turn it on. we went outside and made some videos using the mics.

it was very fun learning about wireless mics


Royalty Free Music

Today in inquiry I learnt about royalty free music and what you can do and cannot do some people pay to use a song or get a free app, if you would to use a song in a show you have to pay for it, if a YouTube used a song that they are not allow to YouTube has to put an add over it or mute it or shot down the Vidor, you can use up to 30 secs of a song if you wish, if the song is over 50 years than you can used it.

We all so learnt a website that you can used and it is royalty free music but you have to put it at the end of the film that the music is from bensound this is what it looks like.


shout gun microphone

Today we lent about shout gun microphones we start off by warming up we said tug twisters (many anemone sees an enemy anemone and which wristwatches are swiss wristwatches).

Than we lent were the microphones live and how to put them on the carmer so all got into groups and put them on then we got our head phones and put them into the cramer and we could hear everyone taking it sounded really cool than we went outside and expended how far away you could go and still hear my group got 30 m.

I lent where the shotgun lives and how to put them on and you can go 30 m and still hare what everyone was saying it was really fun.

Shotlist And Storyboard

Today we lent about shotlist we lent how to yoose them there are 4 prats of the shotlist scenes description type of shot (MS, LS, CU, ECU) the dialogue the storyline and dialogue/audio ( VO, PTC, TEXT).

I all so lent making a film that half takes half of the time to plan 15% of filming and 25% of editing.

A shotgun mic is a mic that you put on the camera you have to make sure that it is on so it dons not fall off.

After he lent about all that we got into groups of 2 and made a shotlist about it we look at a film and put all the defend thing into the shotlist.

I lent all about how to yoose a shotlist and why we us them and that half of the time making a film is planning.



Camcorders And Cameras Angles

Today I learn about camcorders and camera angles we start of by watching a video about all the defend angles here is the video we watched then we talked about all the defend angles, shots: C.V – close up E.C.U – extreme close up FS – full shot M.S mid shot E.S establishing shots angles H.A – high angles L.A low angles O.H.S movement dolly is where the camera mover and the acuter do not zoom is where the camera stays where it is and the actors do not move tracking is where you move and the camera follows you. A film will all ways star with a establishing shot such as stars wars like in the film they show you the stars. I like learning about all the defeat shots angles and movements I cannot wait to yoose all those defeat angles.

Point And Shoot Cameras.

We learnt about point and shoot cameras. We started off by looking at a powerpoint with all the different angles.

The first angle was

Rule of thirds put the main object on the lines

Balancing elements. Put the main object off to the side.

Leading lines. Lines leading us to the object.

Background. Plain background with a object in the front.

Framing. Get something around the object and remember to EXPERIENT.

Then we got into small groups or partners and each group got a camera. Then we took photos of all of the different angles.

I learnt all the different angles. What challenged me was to get a good photo.

With this skill I can now take lots of good photos.


Today we learnt about presenting.

We warmed up by stretching our mouths and saying tongue twisters (red leather – yellow leather/unique-New York/Peter Piper).

Then we looked at a video made last year and looked at the good points and bad points. We also looked at the eye line which is where your eyes are looking when the camera is pointing at you. We also learnt that you have to care about what you make.

We also learnt that you never should put notes on the camera because you are not looking straight at the camera. However, professional news readers have their script on the camera with the script scrolling down with the camera behind it.

Then we got into partners and someone held up their fist and the other person would pretend that the fist was the camera and we said the tongue twisters. Then some of us had a chance to say it into the real camera. I did it and I learnt that you can’t look around and you concentrate on looking at the camera.

What challenged was saying the tongue twisters.

I now have the skill to present into a camera.

Why Make A Film

Today we started Inquiry. We learnt about “Why Make A Film.” People make films for money, entertainment, information, to get a message or story out, for fun and if it is a hobby.

Films are made for different audiences. If you are making a film for young children the film would not have bad language. It may be created as a cartoon or with lots of colour and movement like for example The Wiggles. Young children are created for younger minds to understand and easily follow the story line.

How to get a message across? You get a message across by actors, directors, teaser trailers, ads, music, product placement and audiences (eg Family Feud with laughing in background).

What did I learn? I learnt that people make films for many different reasons.

What challenged you? It has challenged me by opening my eyes to realise that movies are not just made for fun and to entertain us but also for different reasons.
