Audience response is a type of interaction associated with the use of audience responsesystems, to create interactivity between a presenter and his/her audience.
Audience feedback is important in order to crtitically analyse your product and to see if what you created was succesful among your target audience or not.
To gather reviews,comments and opinions I used all the social media platforms I have acces to. I upload my video on youtube and allowed youtubers to comment on the comment section also I monitored the likes/dislikes and views , I shared my video and anciliary products on my Facebook page and also send it in private message to some people that fit my target audience asking their opinion about my product.I posted the video on my A2 media blog as well as on my private page.
And last but not least I asked 10 students from Stanmore College to participate in a focus groupand tell me what they think about my products.
I received positive and negative comments. With 7 out of 10 answering “yes” to the question “Would you purchase this digipack/watch the video/go to the concert?” I was pleased that my target audience likes my products and I could say they were succesful.
A shot list is a full log of all the shots you want to include in your film; essentially it is a checklist filled with minute details that will give your film a sense of direction and efficiency.

I added B&W effect to represent the emotions of the female artist which are sadness and anxiety. I did this by using video effects.I added an transition effect from B&W to colour to create a relationship between lyrics and visual as the lyrics were ”But then you remember you have a reason” which show a change of mood from sadness to happiness.I used the non-additive dissolve transition to make the cut appear more gentile and also because it gives a cool effect of overlaying images.I used deep to white transition to show some kind of memory of how the female artist’s life is in presence of her love compared to how she was at the beginning. I used a fading effect to emphasis the idea above.I used B&W effect and low exposure as I think it looks good with the leather outfit and the tree branches from behind and also reflects her rebel attitude towards the paparazzi.I used the slow motion effect to go with the flow of the song.I used replicate effect to clone the artists faces. I used this effect because i thought it will look good (I’m not sure about it anymore).I copied the video,then reduced opacity, change the position and finaly change the blend mode to screen in order to create a ghost effect in colour.For the end of the video i used a fading into black in the right part of the screen where the artists are positioned as i saw this effect being used in many other pop music videos.

Job Roles in our Music Video
I will fulfill all the tasks as I work by myself which is going to be quite difficult as I can`t explain to the tripod my vision and how I would like to film.It is also time consuming but an advantage will be that I will get an insight of all the roles and their requirements rather than focusing on something I am already good at.Another advantage is that I don`t have a big team to coordinate and I can`t say that because they didn`t do their job I am behind.
The producer in our music video is me and because I am good at coordinating, supervising and controlling matters. I think I am good for the job and I will make sure that everything runs smoothly. I are good at making ideas and share each others opinion.
I am going to be the camera operator because I know a lot about all the camera shots and techniques that we have been taught. I think I am responsible well enough for all aspects of camera operation, like to focus on lighting and overall visual style. I can ensure that the camera and equipments are prepared for the required set–ups, I always keeping alert for any last–minute changes. I can multi–task, and to watch, listen and think on my feet while carrying out complex technical tasks. I can suggest some improvements or alternatives.
The director in our music video is going to be me because I am well organised, sensible, good memory and knows storyboarding well. I tell the actors what to do, ensures the sets are right, establishes the camera angles, controls the lighting and has a say in the editing. I am in total control outside administration things as well.
I will be editing the video because I`m very perfectionist and I like everything to have continuity.I am also capable of seeing my mistakes which make me able to edit those out and improve my project before it`s too late.
Today I went to HMV and had a look at some previous pop albums and other genre albums in order to gain a better understanding when I create my own digipak.Based on what I have seen I decided to produce something different in terms of placing the artists on the cover which means I am going to place Diana,the female artist on the front cover,to look like she`s trying to reach her lover`s hand which will be on the back cover who will also stretching to reach hers. This is an original idea which I haven’t seen on any CD covers until now.
