Assignment 3

Your ideas process

I was given a brief by my teacher on crating a film trailer. It had to tell a story and not just random clips. I was given the matrix full movie to covert into a trailer. I straight away thought of showing stunts, fights and conflicts to make it exciting. Showing the process of the fight and battle in the film from the beginning to end.

The type of research carried out

I watched the film and also skimmed thought certain interesting clips to know the story and to pick out key parts. I also watched a numerous amount of film trailers, I tried to watch a lot of Action, Adventure and Sci-Fi trailers as they were the same genres of the Matrix.

What was learned from the research and how the research was used?

I learnt that having a full understanding of a film you will covert into a trailer helps a big load. By watching the whole film it helped my creativity and helped me with choosing what I want in my trailer. I also learnt by watching other trailers how to use transactions, sound effects, music and how it all adds up to create a cinematic feeling.

What equipment was used and how it was used.

The equipment I used was a iMac. I use Final Cut Pro an editing software. This is how I cut and paste clips into my trailer. Plus on this accusation I also used youtube to collect my theme music.

How I can improve on my pitch
