My filming group consisted of Tom, Charna and Alex. Our task was to film and remake the opening of the film Juno.
I screengrabbed the shots and wrote down how long each shot last for and the camera movement. We searched for locations to film and then followed the storyboard and filmed the shots.

I took the role of acting the character Juno and was filmed by my group. They directed me where to walk to and how and how long for. The storyboard helped us to imagine the shots and what direction to focus the camera at. (different angles)
Once shooting the footage for the remake of Juno's film opening I edited the footage on Final Cut Express and the music from the Juno's opening and changed the effects for the footage.

I used the effect Sharpen which gave the footage cartoon imagery, I did this because it was similar to the film Juno.I used page peel which is a effect for titles, this peels the title from the page. I faded out the music at the ending and the singing voice faintly drifts out.I added titles such as editors,producers,and who it is by. Then exported the film opening ready to view on youtube.

I am pleased with the editing and how the music brings the opening more lively and entertaining. I think some of the shots could have been thought more of and in position and better chosen locations. The shot where I am holding the wrong prop and instead it was shot of me holding the shot list. I should of been holding the bottle.


Overall feedback was good however the actor looked directly at the camera now and again. The editing could of been improved to give it a more of cartoon look.
