Problems uploading our opening sequence and evaluation

There was difficulty uploading our footage because the files were too big. As they were very large it took a long time to upload and the server kept cutting out. We are going to have to compress the files, which takes ages.

Compromise.

Having debated about the music for a lengthy period of time, we as a group have decided that we want to  have one final version of the film, not two separate ones. This means compromising over the soundtrack. Now we have all stopped being stubborn and accepted other peoples view point the soundtrack is much better!

Problems with evaluation

As we tried to film our evaluation, there were disturbances beyond our control because we had to film in a stairwell. People making noise opening doors and going up and down the stairs made it difficult. We had to cut those disturbed parts out and put edits in where the question changed. To edit this we used final cut.

Fitting in S.E.A Productions and ADMILNA INC

After the disaster on Adobe Flash, we incorperated S.E.A Productions in a much simpler fashion. We had the writing in a large blue font on a black background and used a .... cut to make it appear like water. We also added a dripping sound to the background. As far as incorperating ADMILNA INC we used a black background, again, with red writing and simply wrote "in association with admilna inc", it appears after some of the footage of the central character. This idea was taken from the film Mean Machine. After watching simlar films we noted that they're credits were very simple so not to take away from the narrative and we tried to immitate them.

In Association with...

Having watched a lot of similar style films we decided another production line needed to be added in the credits, most of the films we watched had "in association with" on them. So we thought we would do the same and ADMILNA INC was born :)
