Project 2- Evaluation

This project was all about problems and solutions, each week we got given different tasks which have possible problems, and we have to think of a solution to overcome this problem or if we encounter problems later in our work we are able to talk about them and how we can improve them. We then were taught about the production process and all the stages that contribute to this. We created two different projects following the structure of a production. We went through pre-production learning about all of the necessary paperwork, we then moved onto production stages a stage we are already familiar with because of we have had vast amounts of experience in because of we have worked on it since the beginning od the course, we also went through the stages of post-production which was relatively new as we had only recently learnt about editing amongst other things however we did expand our knowledge during this project.
