How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

What have you learned from your audience feedback?

I created this questionnaire to distribute amongst my target audience. I made it an open questionnaire so that answers weren't confined to set values and people could also express opinions and explain them. As I was doing everything myself in the project, the response to all sections was important to me. From the results I gathered, from the 15 people I gave it to, 15 enjoyed it, 9 people enjoyed the performance more than the story, 6 enjoyed the story more.

Initially, the majority didn't quite understand the meaning of the video, but once they thought about it for a few seconds and paid attention to the lyrics and the title, 12 people fully understood the methods behind it.

10 people said the editing was great and at a comfortable pace, 2 people said it was a bit too shaky at times due to the handheld, and 3 people said they didn't pay much attention to it.

The parts with the biggest impact were said to be the closer shots of the singing and the final shot, with just the singer isolated on the stage. This was because the expressions and the placement, and distance fitted well with the theme of being lost.

Everyone said they would recommend the video to other music lovers, and the only thing people said they disliked were the shakier shots, as even though I reduced them significantly, some of the audience still felt slightly thrown off balance.

Unused Footage

There was plenty of footage taken, some really good shots but unfortunately some couldn't be used due to things such as people in the background ruining the shot or things being too shaky etc. I would have used this one for example but the man with his child in the background would have ruined the mood and tone of it.

digipak inside right

I wanted to keep the inside left of my digipak plain and simple, like the little booklet that comes in a cd case. To do this, I used the same wood texture as the inside right, which is a photo of the back of my guitar, and I kept up the DIY tape theme, crafting the words from images of tape.
