Preliminary Montage


  • The variety of different angle techniques I used for example, long a shots.
  • The use of shot reverse shot and match on action.
  • My planning and organizing of my montage.


  • Experimenting with audio and colour correct.
  • How much repetition is used.
  • Use of close ups.

I found this task really useful and I know it will defiantly help me when I come to creating my music magazine, next time I will experiment more with colour correcting and different techniques to make my overall video more interesting.

Continuity Task

I have used the following camera techniques like shot reverse shot, long shot, medium close up and close up. I used these techniques to create a sense of tension throughout my video to show my audience Mark’s reaction to the sweater and that he doesn’t like it but still tries to act as if he does. I have learnt to use the following continuity editing rules for example, the 180 rule, shot reverse shot and match on action. I used these rules to help me in my video to show my audience the different mise en scene I was trying to portray through using different angle techniques. I have learnt to use the following tools/techniques in Premiere Pro like the snipping tool. I used these tools to cut the unwanted parts out my clips that I recorded and wanted to use. If I was to do this project again I would do some things differently, I would have taken more videos in the same angle to widen the variety and give me more choice when I came to editing my video together.
