WEEKLY JOURNALS

This is where you think about your FMP learning journey and development.
Don’t simply describe what you did - consider what you have learnt and how this has benefitted
your project. What do you need to improve?

THIS IS JUST GUIDANCE THAT YOU NEED TO ADAPT TO YOUR OWN PROJECT. YOU HAVE CREATED YOUR
OWN PRODUCTION SCHEDULES AND YOUR WEEKLY BLOGS SHOULD REFELCT THAT.

Week Three - Research

RESEARCH

What did you learn from your I have learnt a lot from my research. I have created
research? infographics to condense this research and show what I
researched. I looked at a video which gave tips on how to
create short films and it was helpful as it showed what kind of
camerawork and characters work well depending on the
genre. I also considered the equilibrium theory which was
created by Tzveten Todorov and I analysed this theory
comparing my short film idea to the standard length film the
grey. To improve my work, I could have researched into
another short film idea to learn more about costumes that fit
the thriller genre well.

How has the research into existing I researched into Ben Elton and David Lynch who are movie
artists and professionals helped you directors. David Lynch uses a unique storyline in his production
improve your ideas? and I wanted to implement a tension building narrative into mu
short film I learnt about the techniques that directors use to tell
stories, this extends my knowledge as I know how I want to
develop the narrative in my short film. The development will be
after the friend’s death the main character must go on a revenge
mission rather than a search.

How has the research into your target Research into my target audience helped me understand how to
audience helped you improve your portray my short film. I researched different target audience
ideas? surveys and 16- 24-year-olds would watch a short film that lasts
between 10 and 15 minutes. This is because if it’s any longer
teenagers tend to lose concentration. This made me condense
my short film to 10 minutes rather than 20 which is what I originally
planned. I could have researched more surveys related to target
audience to get a variety of answers to support my analysis.

How has the research into your Research into my platforms has helped me understand how to
platform helped you improve your promote my short film production. I researched Instagram and
ideas? YouTube and made an infographic to condense it. I showed that
Instagram was a good way to increase the hype of my short film
because this is where I can upload photos and trailers. This can
make my audience more excited about my short film and
increase popularity. I also mentioned that YouTube was a good
way to upload my production as people don’t have to sign in or
pay to watch my production. I can also upload behind the
scenes footage so my audience can see how I created my
production. If I could improve I would analyse another social
media platform such as Facebook or twitter.

What work do you need to complete I am up to date on all my work.
