At first i learnt about television soap drama and what the British film industry in which we studied essays and case studys.
As mid october approached we as a class moved on to learning about what a good thriller is what it includes and what we could imitate (intertextuality) from examples of good thrillers, such as Memento, Psycho, The Step Father and many more.
We as a class were then taught many skills to do with the college JVC camera, such as how to record camera footage, place the tripod and how to chose the appropriate focus for our filming. Below is a photo of the college camera
Once we learnt how to record footage using the college JVC camera we were taught how to edit the clips recorded in Final Cut Pro were could combine all the shots taken for thriller opening and add sound and titles. Below is a screen grab of Final Cut Pro
Lastly but not least we were taught how to create titles using Live Type, which found quite amazing as you could create professional titles such as the titles you see in many movies whether its thriller or comedy. Below is a screen grab of my name in Live Type.
