6) Looking back at your preliminary task (the continuity editing task), what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to full product?
The preliminary helped us a lot in regards to progression towards the final product. Through filming and editing the preliminary task, we found lots of useful ways of recording footage and putting it together as a film. For example, we found many different camera angles, and discovered how to edit together footage using FinalCutPro. We also used camera techniques such as tracking, mid shot and close up. These techniques were also used in the final product. There were some flaws in the preliminary due to our lack of knowledge, such as shakey camera and awkward editing, but we learnt from our mistakes!
