Here is a link to a playlist featuring all the drafts from our main task:
We spoke to our class after the final screening and asked some questions. Here are the questions we asked
Do you prefer the sequence with or without sound?
Our previous draft didn’t have any sound so we asked the class whether they thought it was better with or without sound. The whole class thought it was more effective with sound.
Do you think the music was effective?
The whole class thought the music was effective. This is good as we added it after getting feedback from them before which suggested we should ass music.
Do you think the lighting was good?/better than before?
When asked the first part of the question, Only around half of the class thought the lighting was good however mostly all thought it was better than before. This was good as it was out main thing that we wanted to improve from the previous draft
Is the voice-over effective?
Similar to the music, we added this after feedback suggested it would improve the title sequence. The majority o the class thought that the voice over was effective.
Does the title sequence make you want to watch the whole film?
The majority of the class would like to watch on. This shows that we were successful with the idea we wanted to carry out.
Below is a video I used to learn how to create titles in after effects.
Logan was released on March 1st as a highly anticipated film starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Stephen Merchant. It was written and directed by James Mangold and adapted to a screenplay by Scott Frank.
I saw this film on the day it was released not knowing much about the ‘X-men’ or ‘Wolverine’. This however did not mean i couldn’t follow the film. The story was very emotional and relatable to most people.
The film is balanced, it has its very intense action moments which keep you on the edge of your seat and then it has the toned down emotional scenes which really draw you in. The film engages every part of you and almost makes you feel like you are within the film. the characters are played so well, especially Logan. We see sides of him that aren’t expected, how he is becoming weaker throughout the film. Emotional sides,which take a while to come out, and selfless sides.
One of the best scenes is when Professor-X has a seizure. It’s just incredible. The scene is held out for such a long time which creates a massive tension within the audience. It also really shows how powerful Professor-X actually is.
The child, Laura, is payed very well. The way she portrays her character makes you want to be her. She’s so cool. As her character doesn’t speak much English- or speak much at all for that matter, it is down to her acting to portray her personality to the audience. At first she seems quite shy until Professor-X takes her under his wing. This is when she really develops as a character. She gives a very powerful performance for a child and if the film wasn’t a 15 rating, she would be a good person for girls to look up to.
Having only seen one X-men film, which wasn’t that good, I am glad i saw it. It was just great.
I r8 it 8/10
