Growing concern... You must start posting your Evaluation. I want to see some of the tasks on your blog by tomorrow's lesson, even if they are still 'work in progress' - you will be able to amend / add to them.

Example from other centre (note - your evalution must feature on your individual blog)
A2 Evaluations - Look at Hasina's tasks and Chloe's voice over for inspiration.

Just to remind you again, here are the criteria for a level 4:
16–20 marks
- Excellent understanding of issues around audience, institution, technology, representation, forms and conventions in relation to production.
- Excellent ability to refer to the choices made and outcomes.
- Excellent understanding of their development from preliminary to full task.
- Excellent ability to communicate.
- Excellent skill in the use of digital technology or ICT in the evaluation


Home learning on the film industry

Due in on Monday 14.2.11 for mr. Molloy's lesson. No excuse accepted for not completing it. It should also help you with some of your evaluation tasks!

Final Deadline - 14th March 2011, 5pm

All coursework, including all evaluation tasks, must be completed by Monday 14th March 2011, 5pm. No further posting will be considered after that deadline. This Thursday you will be working on Evaluation question 1. Afterwards, you will have to continue in your own time.
Get any filming for your evaluation tasks done before half term! Get yourself organized!

You have already started on the Film Industry with Mr Molloy and will be working on the other exam unit (Representation in TV Drama) with me after half term.



You must use every opportunity to use the pod this week and next week before Thursday to complete, export and embed your final cut. You must start posting your evaluation tasks now. A letter is going home to explain it all.

You must strive to show your film opening to your target audience and gather feedback - see earlier posts - to tackle your evaluation task on feedback. Think of filming your group and / or your audience discussing your work. Structure the feedback with guidance questions. Add shots or clips from your film, do a little subtle editing, et voila!

Use the links on the right-hand side to look at examples and remember to have a look at the A2 blogs as well, particularly for examples of how to tackle question 1 (you'll be doing the same task).


Home Learning - for week beginning 7.2.11

You need to get started on your evaluation tasks. We will start Evaluation question 1 in class but you must get started on questions 2, 3, 4, 5. I expect you to have completed at least 2 tasks in depth and as creatively as possible by next Thursday (at least a rough version). Please look at your packs or the previous post for guidance.

Remember that your final edit needs to be completed by Thursday 10.2.11, end of lesson 2. If you finish early, you will be working on your evaluation tasks.



Now that your sequences are nearly there, you seriously need to focus on your Evaluation Questions - another 20 marks can be gained with a little commitment and effort.

This is the booklet you need to refer to. It is to be found at the back of the assessment booklet you already have. Be as creative as you can. Start working now and organize time to film one of the evaluation questions. Please look at the A2 media students' blogs to look at the varied ways to evaluate creatively.
