Promotion Film Reflection

Hello readers,

This term we started a promotion film, Geelong by kids for kids. First we got an email from a lady called Tracey who works at a place who promote the Geelong and the Bellarine, she asked us if we wanted to all make a film for her so that they can put it on their website. Of course we wanted to, so we all got to work, we got into small groups and wrote down a list of places where kids like us would love to go in the Geelong and Bellarine area. Once everyone had written down some great places the teachers culled it down to about 4 areas  with a few places at each. 6A- Torquay- Supa-Tramp, Skate park, Beach and park 6B- Waurn Ponds- Leisure Link, Balyang Sanctuary, 6C- Geelong- Geelong waterfront, skate park and Ferris wheel. Then we all got into a group of 6 [ 2 people from each class] so that we could use the film from each of our partners class. Finally the teachers had everything set and we were ready to go, on Tuesday 6A were the only class to go somewhere because Supa tramp was only open on Tuesday. Once they had comeback from there they saved all there film onto a computer before the film gets lost. Then on Wednesday all the classes set off to there designated places, we all went to a place for around 10-15 minutes depending on what/how big the place is/was. After a great day with all of our filming and everything sorted and completed, we had to save all of our footage on our computers, unfortunately the K-Drive was completely full. Luckily the teachers managed to get 12 USB’s for each group, so it was really easy for everyone in each group to get there footage together and ready. But before we could put all the film on an USB we had to cull and cut all of the bad footage or the last two seconds at the end of a film.

When we had cut all of our film and we were really happy with what we had, we were ready to edit on Corel, it took a very long time to get all the footage on to Corel because it is a very laggy program. When we were happy with our first draft, all the year 6’s went around to everyone’s computer and give a person some feedback so t the en of the session each year six would have five comments. Then we re-edited it with the comments that we got, finally wen we had used all the feedback and were happy with he film, we went and commented on peoples films again. When we had our sheet with all the feedback e gave it t the teachers so that they can chose a few of the best films to send off to the client.

Even if my film doesn’t get chosen, I still think it was a great experience. Here is my completed film⤵
