Due to the absence of one of the group members, I had to take the responsibilities that he had as a cameraman, scriptwriter had been put on to me and as this inconvenience had occurred I took the lead of the project which concluded with work quality being reduced. however besides all of the negative things that occurred to me and the other member of my group was still able to create a nice and meaningful trailer that paid homage to watchdogs 2.
For starters, the timing and video footage in the trailer was very well placed and organized was a very unique way that told the story as I wanted too. On the other hand, there was a scene that was dragged on for too long and could have been improved on by cutting it down and filming a scene or two extra to make the trailer more fluent and not bore the view as that scene is too long and makes the view not interested however it does create a slight bit of suspense of if the character will complete the task in time or not.
The music of the trailer was a very uplifting hip hop type of track which fits into the video as we try to present the events of the game like hacking for justice in a positive light which is a good thing as it makes people feel pumped up to play the game. However, the story in the trailer is a bit dark as it about a male hacker infiltrating an organization’s database through one of their hubs making the track a bit out of place but I still believe it to go with the flow of the trailer.
Week 1 (05/03/18)
This week we started to get everything we need to film as this was the first week of our filming and the last due the time we had left for the deadline. We filmed most of our shots in and the college at around 2pm and ended later that day at 5pm which was a lot of time we spent on shots as we wanted them to be as perfect as they could be with the time we had left. Most of the shots we had come up with we had already decided the places we would shoot the scenes so all that was left to do was got straight into the scenes so we shoot all the shots in order and got all of them done.
I did the filming and directing as Philan done all the action with both of us also evaluating the footage we made sure we could get our shots all done with the minimum time as possible. we day ended with our last shot outside and called it a warp as we reviewed the footage we were happy and decide to return the equipment.
Week 2 (13/03/18)
This week we worked on the editorial stage of our work which we took time with as we picked what clips to use and the style we were going with as we added a small amount of in-game footage as we wanted the viewers to see what other things the game included that we weren’t able to film as we didn’t have the resources nor the time. however, we were still able to produce a very fun and great trailer.
