  1. 1. I think that coming up with dialogue and doing the media concepts is the hardest part of the pre-production.
    2. The storyboard helps you to know what angles you’re going to use, and makes the shooting process easier. You already know what you’re going to film before you film your video.
    3. The hardest part is filming things multiple times, but my favorite part is acting in the videos.
    4. Sometimes you don’t like how it turned out so you need multiple video, but you also need different angles from the same scene in your video.
    5. It’s hard to match up the same scene of to fit where you left off with a different angle, and to make your sound adjustment right.
    6. I now know to use a mic for better sound and audio. It was kind of hard to hear us in this video.
    7. I learned how to use space elements, and not show every little detail.

  2. 1. Deciding what should be done or said on camera was the most difficult part of pre production.
    2. Storyboards are important, so you always know what you are going to do, so you don’t leave out any scenes.
    3. The most difficult part of the shooting phase making the acting flow well. The easiest part was getting camera angles set.
    4. It’s important to shoot extra video so that if you mess up or decide to change something you always have extra footage to work with.
    5. The most challenging part of editing was making sure the sound is even and sounds clear.
    6. I feel that the biggest thing we learned technically was that sound is very iffy so we have to go the extra mile to make it sound well.
    7. Everyone did a really good jobs on their videos, some things I learned was always shoot extra video, incorporate more angles, and make the sound even through out the whole video.

  3. 1. The most difficult part of pre-production was drawing the storyboard. It’s hard to visualize what the video is going to look like.
    2. The storyboard maps out the story and gives you a frame by frame of the video. Shooting is a lot easier when the video is already planned out.
    3. Trying to find locations to shoot was difficult. My favorite part of shooting was setting up lights and placing objects around the camera to give the video the effect we wanted.
    4. It’s important to have a lot of footage because while editing, you might not like the first take of a scene.
    5. The most challenging part of editing was finding the right music for the video.
    6. I learned that there are tons of sound effects, as well as video effects available.
    7. Try more techniques than you think are necessary, and make your video interesting to watch!!!

  4. 1. The most difficult part of the pre-production was to come up with something to make a video about, and to imagine how we wanted to shoot it.
    2. Storyboards are important because they help you to know what to do while shooting, and help you to not forget anything.
    3. The most difficult part of the shooting was to find the perfect camera angles. The best part was seeing the videos come together.
    4. It is important to shoot as many videos as possible because then you have more to work with, and usually the acting gets better after shooting it multiple times.
    5. The most challenging part about the editing was to make sure the audio was loud enough.
    6. The biggest ting I learned technically was that having different camera angles makes a big difference in a video.
    7. I learned about space elements, and new and interesting camera angles.

    1. HARD PART OF PRE PRODUCTION IS THANKING WHAT YOUR GOING TO DO. OR WHAT OR GOING TO VIDEO
    2. YOU WRITE DOWN WHAT YOUR DOING.
    3. The angles. ACTING
    4. SO YOU WILL HAVE ALOT OF VIDEO CASE YOU DONT LIKE SOMETHING
    5. WHAT PART TO PUT IN.
    6. DO DIFFERENT CAMERA ANGLES.
    7. DO MORE CAMERA ANGLES

  6. 1. The hardest part for me was drawing the storyboard.
    2. It helps you visualize what you want your film to look like.
    3. It was hard to decide where to film, but when an opportunity to shoot something interesting came we decided to go with it. My favorite part was deciding what to do with the footage we had.
    4. You don’t know what you’ll need when the editing part comes in. Sometimes ideas change so you have to do something different.
    5. The hardest part of the editing phase for me was figuring out how to cut between two different concepts. When you have to very different ideas it’s hard to make those two things fit together.
    6. We had trouble figuring out how to import our video so it’s good that we know how to now.
    7. We learned that we need to plan what we want our outcome to be in a more productive way.

    3. It was hard to find a location to film. The best part was putting it all together.
    4. When the editing comes in you don’t know what you will need. It’s better to have more than not enough.
    5. The hardest part of the editing phase for me was figuring out how to cut between two different clips, it’s hard to put two things that are completely different together.
    6. We had trouble figuring out how to import our video so it’s good that we know how to now….that was embarrassing.
    7. We learned that we need to plan what we want our outcome to be so it will look good.

  8. 1. Figuring out what we was going to say and when.
    2. So that you know what shots you are doing and when and your not just doing it off the top of your head.
    3. Hardest part was figuring out what camera angles to use and the easiest part acting.
    4. So you have more then one option and you can pick the best.
    5. Cutting and putting in sound affects.
