Edublogs is the blogging site where we documented our journey. It allows for the creation of a homepage, you can tag posts into categories so things are filed nicely, and it follows in chronological order for ease. We placed all videos, planning documents and links here so we could refer back to them and analyse our own abilities in preparation for the skills section of our exam.

After Effects is a POST PRODUCTION programme that is predominantly used to apply special effects to videos, even in Hollywood blockbusters like James Cameron's, 'Avatar'. It is understandable when one considers the wealth of tools. Keyframes, pathing, masks and freeze frames are a huge chunk of the animation in our video, and they were found through the editorial prowess of After Effects.

Adobe After Effects - We used this software in the post-production phase. We used it to add special effects and transitions to our product in order to attain more marks and make it look cool.

To learn certain skills on the Adobe programmes, I used a great site called Lynda.com. Although I only used the site for the duration of a ten day free trial it was a deep insight into some more of the complicated skills I wished to use, such as rendering on Photoshop for the digipak, and brushing up on the text animations that we used in After Effects for the PRODUCTION of the product. These skills made our final products conventional to the ska genre, and in turn created predictable…

Lynda - This was important for the post-production stage of our music video. We used it to increase our knowledge of Adobe After Effects and how to transform objects, such as musical notes, using Keyframes.

Photoshop - a professional photo editing suite ensured our digipak and advert were designed to the highest possible standard during post production which made our products as close to the real genre as possible achieving the aims of the brief. It also aided our planning through creating a digital mock up of our digipak using borrowed images which gave us a sense of direction over our designs.

Our Youtube Channel, and the site itself, was crucial. Youtube videos could be embedded into our blog, thus allowing EVALUATION and drafts to be placed in our blog. This showed visual evidence of our progress and growth of our skills throughout the course. It also served as a RESEARCH tool, allowing us to gauge the recurring themes and conventions (Doc Martens, denim, vespas) in the Ska genre.

eBay is an online marketplace where people can auction off items, or buy brand new. The iconic Union Jack jumper was bought off this site, along with other items that were used in PRODUCTION of our digipak and advert. eBay gave us the mandatory mise-en-scene that would create predictable pleasure within the 'mod' psychographic, and furthermore, fulfill the blueprint we had been set for the ska genre.

My printer card uses an RFID chip that connects my school profile to the printer, and as such is a media technology. It was used for the printing of documents like my Production Meeting Agenda, and the celebrity masks that feature in the video. Without a printer card, we would have been working from the top of our head during shoots, unorganised and would not have had the necessary props to film scenes in our PRODUCTION stage.

Marcus's printer card - Was used through each stage of our production. It was used to easily print off documents like 'production meeting agenda'.

Google Slides - a presentation program that was used to make various research presentations during the planning stage, this included genre, star image and synesthesia ideas which, in turn, led to some crucial decisions on mise-en-scene and performer attitude in the music video

Planning: We used EDU blogs in the researching stages of our Music Video as it was a good way for us to share important documents. It also enabled us to gain constant feedback from our teachers about our progress and quality of evaluation.

Adobe Reader XI is software for the viewing, manipulation and reading of PDF documents. It was an effective reader to have as the scanner in the printer would only email files as PDF, and such files are unreadable without this programme installed. Our team relied on the scanner to send us documents to our e-mail; so that we could work on our digipak to incorporate the artist's signatures and break the fourth wall for example.

Adobe Reader XI - this software allowed us to view PDF documents we had scanned in. This was important during post-production to extract and manipulate a scanned in document of the artists signatures which we wanted to edit into our digipak.
