Today in Multimedia we didn’t do much. We started the lesson by watching a video as a class. The video was called how to make a video. It was about all the different processes you have to go through and all this different parts of a production. For example post production, production etc. After the video we all had to answer some questions on the video. This took up the whole first lesson. In the second lesson I partnered up with Harry to create another design brief.
(Provide as much relevant background information as possible about who is hiring you)
The client for this video is Mr Allan.
STATE THE COMMUNICATION NEED
(Describe exactly what the client needs us to make for them)
Mr Allan wants us to create a video for the students in our multimedia class showing them our community and what is in it. He wants us to show what are community is about and what there is and who lives there. All the information we can find about our community should be in this limited 3 minute video.
DESCRIBE THE AUDIENCE
(Describe who will be viewing the product. Identify the relevant information about them, e.g. age; gender; interests; cultural background; location, etc.)
The client for this video will be our fellow students in the multimedia class for year 9. They are a group of friendly students who enjoy multimedia and using and experiencing different types of media. They all have made several videos in this class and are skilled in different parts of this subject.
DESCRIBE THE PURPOSE
(Identify what the client wants to get out of this product?)
The client (Mr Allen) requires us to make a product about our local community. For assessment of our skills. The client also wants us to make the video entertaining and interesting for our fellow students in our multimedia class.
DESCRIBE THE CONTEXT
(Where will the product be seen?)
This product would most likely be seen by the other students and Mr Allen of Wheelers Hill Secondary College. If the video was really good, it could be used to convince people to move into the area so this video could be used at real estates.
STATE THE CONSTRAINTS
(Things that you need to include or specifically not include. Things that will affect your ability to complete the project, e.g. budget, timeframe, etc.)
One constraint of this product would be the quality of the video. We may not have a very good camera at the time or other sounds may interfere with the audio. Another constraint of the video would be the content that would be accepted by society for viewing. For example, it is a common thought that Bayswater and Boronia are places that have some terrible things happening on and we wouldn’t be able to tell the viewers that.
I am starting to find making all these design briefs boring. I think i have developed the skills necessary to make a proper brief. After making so many briefs i am starting to get bored in class. Over all in class I am working effectively but I am still bored.
