During this week I continued to work on my ‘Making of Documentary.’ When I originally started this piece I thought it would be much quicker to do than the poem assignment, however I have been proved wrong in a major way. Although I had already completed my moving image I had to backtrack and retrace all my movements, making me regret my decision not to film the process as I had been going along as this would have prevented me wasting time.
I wanted to ensure I had enough material to include in this documentary so I created a quick plan scheduling what I wanted to include. I found this particularly helpful, as it ensured I documented the entire process and something vital was not missed. As well as this, i created a quick shot list of the different shots I wanted to include.
One area of the documentary which I am happy with is the typography research section. I feel that this has a good flow and I credit this to the range of shots used. By cutting to different shots, I feel the documentary is more engaging and is more likely to maintain the attention of the audience.

In class this week we were given a copy of brief 2. I had the choice of three different topics which were an advertisement for an app, a short interview or a 90 second film. My initial thought it to create the 90 second film, however I will spend some time doing research and considering ideas.
As project management is very important in order to meet deadlines, I decided to create a gantt chart which would help me manage my time as effectively as possible. This can be found below.
