Updating blogs and presentations

Some of your blogs have been updated but not all. Furthermore, there is little evidence as yet that work is underway for your evaluation. These will need to be completed shortly as the deadline is looming. Get working!

Some of the research part of the coursework is still incomplete, particularly your research on famous directors and iconic thriller scenes. What you tend to provide so far is general information about directors rather than explaining why they are famous and/or respected in the business. For example, what is their signature film and why, or their signature style and how is it achieved? You obviously need to have seen some of their key films, particularly if they have inspired you for your own filming.

You also need to embed some Youtube videos of key iconic thriller scenes or opening sequences that are a source of inspiration (or aspiration) for you. Write a sharp analysis of the techniques used and to what effect.

Finally, you need to use some screen grabs from your own work and comment on them on your blog. Find a way to scan your storyboards to upload them as well, at least on your group blog, and comment on how well you've kept to them or what you had to change for whatever reason.

In an ideal world, all groups should have produced and commented on their film posters for your new thriller. As far as I know, two groups are working on that.

All in all, still a lot of work to be done... Some good work on DVD covers/film posters though.

Work hard! Some of you are not getting above an E for the first part of the coursework at the moment (It should be 20 marks easily gained).Look at the criteria distributed in class.

Your film openings as they stand will be presented in groups on Thursday. You'll need to present them and answer any question thrown at you. You will also get feedback to allow you to make final changes and adjustments in next Tuesday's triple (19/01/10).

Please see either of us for any guidance.
