Advanced Production

Advanced Production

Return to Media Studies Hub

Return to Blogging Skills Hub

What you need to do here is to make three separate postings under the headings:
  1. Planning 
  2. Production / Post-Production 
  3. Production Report / Evaluation
Link them back to your Advanced Production posting.  


Production / Post Production

(For website creation there will be the taking of original images. Here production means the actual making of the web pages.  In moving image work we talk about "POST-Production when the work involves the editing suite.)

Production Report

This should include a discussion of how & why you planned your product (Roughly 500 words).

You also need to discuss the actual production process. What you learned about Dreamweaver, Flash and any other program you used. You should include screenprints of the tools you used in the programms you were using. Here you can discuss the difficulties and successes of your experience. (Roughly 500 words). Remember if you use plenty of screenshots then this reduces the amount of explanatory words required!

There must be an assessment of the industry context (Roughly 1,000 words). This is a key aspect of the specification that is different to the AS Foundation Production Unit.

Evaluation. There must EVIDENCE of audience feedback. You should have done an audience feedback survey of at least 10 people. This must be made available as a hard copy appendix. On the basis of your audience feedback you should discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your project in relation to your original specified target audience. You should be balanced in this account and make an assessment of how you might improve upon a similar project. (Please note just blagging won't score marks!!! :-) ).

Blogging Your First Step

Blogging Your First Step

Hi everybody, today we are going to get you started on blogging by getting you to establish your blog.

You are going to be establishing your blog on blogger which is a Google owned software. This is because this software has been tested through the college network and it functions through the firewall. This isn't a recommendation suggesting Blogger is best. Other blog software available such as Wordpress may be more intuitive. This blog is developed and hosted by Warwick University Blogs which I find better than Blogger.

First of all open Google and search for "Blogger".

You should get up an entry into the Google software "Blogger". Please follow their instructions to open your own blog.

When you are asked for an email address I suggest you use your own home one rather than the college one. The blog is going to be a permanent thing with you.

For now name the Blog in your own name followed by "Academic Blog". In the URL box put the same thing.

On the first posting put:

As a title Subject Hub

Give your page this heading as well.  Under that put the list of subjects that you are taking. So the actual posting will look something like this:

Subject Hub

Media Studies



Business Studies

Now "post" in other words publish this page.

The reason for calling it a subject hub is to help with navigation. Whilst navigation is easy early on your blog will gradually build up into something quite large.  As you will see from my blog it is nopw so big that navigational issues have developed. The "hub page system is one I have developed to get over this.

The next thing to do is to create another four postings each entitled by the subject name, Media Studies Etc.

One the Media Studies page you need to put the following headings:

Textual Analysis: TV Drama Representation

British Cinema: A Case Study

Foundation Production

These are the areas you will be studying during the course of the year.
