In terms of learning about technologies, i think we have progressed alot with the use of the Macs and equipment such as cameras and the use of tripods etc. At the start of the year, I didn't know how to use the Macs to edit anything, however over the course of the year, we have learnt how to import our filming from the camera onto Imovie so we can edit accordingly. We've learnt how to put special effects onto things such as the typography making it look more professional, aswell as using precision editing on the shots so we get the timing just right and the film doesn't drag out. Aswell as this, we have continually used the cameras at school to film various parts of our piece and my knowledge of using cameras with equipment such as tripods has progressed quite alot, specifically knowing what angles to use the camera at and what type of shots we want to incorporate within the film. As a group, we were lucky with the Mac that we chose as it had the programme 'Final Cut' on it, which enabled us to have a typography different from the limited simple ones that were offered in IMovie. After using it a few times, i would still probably need a bit of help using this, however i feel that as a group we are independant in terms of using technologies, although we did come across adversities on the Macs which we sort out help for.
