Short Form Video

February 24, 2010

For the short form video Phil Peel has organised for us all to work in 7 separate  groups to make 7 separate short form videos which once completed will be able to intertwine  with one another. The initial story is based around a lecturer being kidnapped by a terrorist group who are protesting against the use of CCTV in daily life. Me and my group (Consisting of Alex Campbell, Kavi and James Yeo) have chosen to make the part of the Tv News as we felt this would be the most interesting one for use to do as it would give us the chance to work with some of the other groups mainly the Police and terrorist groups but it would also give us chance to use the green screen to help create the news room as well as being able to use programs like Adobe After Effects and Maya to create the graphics needed for making our news reports seem genuine (Opening titles, On screen information). Below you can find all the information we have organised so far.
