27/03/12 - Today we faced a problem with the editing of our film, we found that whilst i had added more clips i had not made it fit to the music.  we were able to solve this by extending the song so that we could make it fit to the film.  Now we only have to add the titles and our film will be complete.  We also added a  Universal ident to our film.  The reason why we did this is so that the film will look more professional and Universal is one of the most well known movie companies in the world and easily recognizable by the iconic spinning globe and also the background music.

27/03/12 - Today i continuely edited our film to the stage that it is almost completed.  I should only take a couple of days until our masterpiece is completed.

23/03/12 - Today I continually edited the film 'Poor Little Daniel', i inserted the title scenes into the film so that the audience knows who made the film, who edited it and who stared in it.

16/03/12 - Today we were told that our title sequence had been nominated for the RAFTA's.  This is the Ravens Wood School's version of the BAFTA's.  we were nominated for the best title sequence of year 12.  Hopefully we will win.  This i believe is deserved because i have worked tirelessly to try to make our film as good as possible.  During this lesson we were able to improve our film by changing shot speed, this makes the film seem faster and that is key to a montage scene.  Also I made the film fit the background music as this will increase the tempo of the film.  We have almost completed the film and all that is needed to place the title scenes into the film so that the audience can see who made the film.

14/03/12 - today we decided to make the majority of the shots shorter and put more shots in.  The reason for this is we believed that people would not want too watch someone shoot slowly for 2 minutes.  We took inspiration from a nike advert which uses short shots for effect.  We also took inspiration form this other video because it has a catchy beat in the background, similar to our film and this makes the video feel faster and ultimately better.  The last advert we took inspiration from is similar to our film because it shows the story of how a player goes up through the ranks and becomes a star, similar to the basis of our film.

1303/12 - Today we were able to edit the first 25 seconds of the film.  It took a while to get used to the certain tools that we would need such as the cutting tool wich is used to cut shots in half.  However we were able to put a smooth transition between the classroom and the gym scenes and we have already put in two different shots to show Daniel playing Basketball.
