Dear Moderator,

Here are the links to our AS students' blogs. They have all completed the brief that asks them to complete a continuity task and a film opening sequence. They have produced thriller openings.

They have all worked on their own to plan and edit their own films. We hope that you'll enjoy their work.

(Kareem is currently rebuilding his blog after his posts got deleted over Easter.)
(UPDATE: A week after Easter, Kareem was admitted for an appendectomy and has not returned to school before the coursework deadline. He has done his best to rebuild his blog from home but has struggled with further medical complications since. We will be asking for special considerations to be given.)

Evaluation - The final 20 marks


  1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. How does your media product represent particular social groups?
  3. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
  4. Who would be the audience for your media product?
  5. How did you attract/address your audience?
  6. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
  7. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the
    full product? 

This is a great response to Question 1 by Kamini from last year:

These are interesting ones from Yasmin whose evaluation also made it into Level 4 (though it's not perfect!)

This is more of a level 3 but shows you how you can annotate your film opening in YouTube for Question 5:

This is an example of a director's commentary over the students' film opening (warning: it's not particularly high quality)
This is a better one:

Example from other centre (note - your evalution must feature on your individual blog)

Also take inspiration from A2 Evaluations - Look at Hasina's tasks and Chloe's voice over for instance.

Also look at the examples linked on the left hand-side under Essential Links (towards the bottom of the list on this page)

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
