We have received some professional feedback for our film from one of the other media teachers, he has expressed that he likes the idea of our film and likes that we have chosen and followed a certain style of film (film Noir) that not a lot of others did. He commented on our editing and felt that the black and white style that we chose was very effective to to time era we were aiming for with the music linking it as well to the time era.
When discussing what we could do better next time for improvement, he explained that some of our camera shots and edits could of been improved, for example, we cut out certain body parts (cutting out someone's head) and the shot wasn't in the right angle and we lost some of the meaning, to improve this, we will have a look at our film and maybe cut the scene down before the camera error or re-film those specific sections of the film. Another weakness mentioned was that he felt that we rushed the story and should try and slow it down to build tension and not rush through the story, for example, when the hustler realizes he can play snooker and plays well all happened too quickly, he suggested that we should slow that down with a different choice of shots or story to get the full effect of the story and build the tension up as much as possible.
Reflection of Work: This is our final film which we have fully edited and added all the music too and made corrections to, in our view going with the feedback given from our sample and first drafts of the film, making it as good as we possibly could. This is the final product of nearly half a year of working, researching and planning. personally feeling that it had paid off and we were able to show off the skills and development that we had made over the last 2 years, using everything we had learnt in both in side and outside of lessons to produce our project.
We uploaded all of our tasked (Film, Poster and Trailer) on to facebook to get feedback from all of our peers,we did this by creating a page allowing people to both comment and like our projects, this went down really well and was successful, getting comments such as :great Film :)" and "I enjoyed watching that". so looking back at these comments was really nice for m,e and lucien and the feed back that we got back was mainly positive so we were happy. Uploading our stuff onto facebook was a good idea as it allowed us to get an even broader range of comments for our film and other tasks.
