Final Post

This blog is now closed!
The project has officially come to an end. It has been a long and tiring process but we have had alot of fun and are proud of what we have achieved.

We have tried to make it as easy to navigate as possible through the use of labels and posting in date order.
We hope you enjoy having a look around.

Audience Feedback Questionnaire Discussion

After our screening, we compiled the questionnaires together and went through them as a group. Below is the video of our responses to the results.

To summarise:
- The majority of the audience enjoyed the sequence and would watch the rest of the film
- Most people were able to predict the general plot of the film
- Special effects and graphics were the most succesful aspects of the sequence as many people favoured this over other factors such as plot, etc.
- Overall feedback was positive but the improvements suggested were to make it clear that there was a teacher present and there should be more explanation into what relevance the opening drawings had in relation to the plot.

Audience Feedback - Test Screening

We held a test screening to get some responses from our audience, which proved really helpful and encouraging. Sadly, the footage had to be edited on windows movie maker so the quality is not high - which makes me appreciate good film editing programmes like adobe premiere so much more!

Advertising 'Exceptional'

To help draw in a larger audience for our test screening, we put up posters around the school. We specifically targeted the sixth form area as 17/18 year olds were nearest to our average target audience age of 20, in addition to the fact that our friends were more likely to attend to support our project.

In the poster displayed in school, the top line is, actually, in one line - apologies for the technological distortion.

Final Script

This is the final script for the opening minutes of our film 'Exceptional', a superhero film aimed primarily at men and women aged between 15 - 25. Over the course of pre-production and production the script underwent many ammendments as the film was adjusted, but the premise remains the same: an unpopular male teenager is shown to be a social outcast, but it is revealed that the has the power to move things with his mind. He is almost caught by his love interest, and procedes to have an awkward conservation with her in which she is shown to not know who he is.

Our action and dialogue had been agreed on before shooting commenced, but due to a voice-over that we needed to add in post-production, a couple of ammendments were made during our editing time. These were done to fit the voiceover in well with our filmed footage, in addition to recommendations made to us in feedback during editing. The final result can be viewed below.
