Year 12 Media To Do

To Do:
ª Upload and comment on Continuity piece if not done yet.
ª Upload Pitches done in other class and write an evaluation comment - what feedback did you get from the class/teacher on your idea?
ª Write up/copy the analysis you did of the Se7en title sequence by Kyle Cooper.
ª Research the other work and biography of Kyle Cooper. Analyse at least one of his other title sequences, comparing it with Se7en to see if you can detect a particular style in his work. Comment on whether his work will influence your own and why/not.
ª Write a 'What next?' plan, detailing further research and planning activities you plan to undertake.

Year 10 Blog Lesson

1. Set up a new coursework blog using the same login details.
2. Write up your notes from yesterday on it (Mise-en-scene, cinematography, editing, sound and Dexter analysis). Add as much about Dexter as you can (not just what you wrote down in the lesson).
3. Make sure you've put the photos you took on your other blog and labelled them correctly.

Watch the titles of your favourite TV drama show and write notes, on your blog, about how they communicate information about the show to the audience through cinematography, mise-en-scene (and sound and editing if you can).

Year 10 Tasks Wednesday

1. Put all the photos taken by your group last lesson onto your blog and label them correctly (Close-up, Canted angle etc.)
2. Hand in your Textual Analysis essay (Barbie/Hercules).
3. Make sure that you finished your 'My Media', your magazine cover and your banner and that you added them to your blog. These will be assessed for practical production skills so make sure they are as good as possible.
4. Check that everything else is on your blog that should be.
5. Write a post evaluating your performance in media so far - what have you learnt, how have you improved, what are you enjoying and what are you not? Is it what you expected it to be? What else are you hoping we will do this year? What goals are you setting yourself?
6. If you do all that, set up a new blog in the same account called 'Coursework Task 1'. Make a banner for it.
