A2 Media Coursework Questions To Get To Know

  1. Hey everyone, I'm doing A2 Media Studies AQA. And I NEEEED help. To cut straight to the point, my teacher is clueless about everything, he thinks he's one of the kids, he's immature and he's not even officially a teacher yet.

    I only passed AS because the students all teamed up and taught ourselves, but for some reason we are not doing it this time, probably because the work is much harder and I can't find much help online. Please can anyone help! I really need these grades to get into uni! Thanks if you can!

  2. Hey tberyan, I'm about to sit the same exam this year (7th of June) and would happily offer you some advise on the A2 exam.

  3. Hi, yes please! It would be of massive help!

Creative Filming and Editing Tasks

1)    Filming a person sitting down with the monitor window open and with another camera film the monitor.

2)    Cloning editing task – tripod and camera must remain still in wide shot. Actor is filmed moving in different parts of the shot. Standing by the board, sitting down. 6 different shots. Go to premiere link on how to edit it.

3)    Depth of field task –

·       Do a distance little and large shot so that someone looks very small in the background and another very large.

·       Place an object like a cup or a ball down maybe with grass background - place the camera level with the object quite far away and then zoom into it so the object is sharp but the camera is blurred.

·       Place your artist in the background and add various cut out props to the foreground to float around the artist.

4)   Reverse shot – while the artist is singing get them to walk carefully backwards, but to add excitement to the shot add obstacles for jumping over and ball throwing so it can be reversed.

5)    Wheelchair / Tripod – we are going to simulate tracking and dolly shots. Camera on wheelchair film artist moving towards you singing to camera one take 30 seconds.

Tripod shot – raise the front leg of the tripod so the camera is pushed forward on the back legs.

6)   Lego stop motion – 30 still shots of lego action (one second each)
