Looking back at your preliminary task (continuity editing task), what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to full product?
The image above shows the two different frames where the continuity takes place, the first and the second.We videoed Theeba coming through the door the same way from both angles. From behind, at a mid-low angle for the first shot, and the next, a mid-shot, showing theeba walk through the door on the other side of her. Then I used Final cut Express to get the exact timing correctly, after several attempts as the timing must be as accurate as possible for the continuity editing to be as best as possible. I also learnt that i need to make sure that everything must be kept the same for every filming part of the filming in order for one shot to flow into the next, even a small variation can effect the flow.
The two frames above, are part of one shot sequence. The technique that i have discovered is quite important is a point of view shot, as Komal is walking towards the toilet.
We took the first shot of this sequence showing komal's hand reaching the door to open the door and, the following shot is another continuity shot, then showing her open the door this, i have learnt is also a good technique to use,

We attracted our audience by choosing our main character out of the normal, as a teenage female character rather than a typical male character, who is a hero. Our main reason for this was our eagerness to stretch the audience and attract the majority of the population, as personally i would say the main character being a female would attract me to watch the film as an audience, as i could relate to it and also sympathize with the character too.
In the opening the first character we see, is the main character although the main character is revealed at the beginning the character is also however portrayed as a victim. Immediately enigma is present in the beginning, creating questions for the audience. Also I, reinforce the idea of the female character having a bigger impact on the audience.
(it is bright in this image, however darker in our film)
The mis-en-scene aspect of our opening, also definitely plays a major role in attracting audience; the location, which is a drama/fitness room that is rarely used and of course looks abandoned, this also helped us relate to school children, whilst it was not directed younger children.
We chose a film title that would attract.
