Unit 9: Research (Greg)

For the unit 9 project we have to complete two pieces that are different formats, the two have to be based on the same theme with the target audience being aged between 16-30 years old.

Before I started creating the final product I carried out research to help me gather an understanding of what I could do, how I could do it, information to include in my product and to get examples of products like my own. I collected a lot of research, however, only a few pieces had input on my work. The types of research ranged from primary to secondary, qualitative and quantitative.

Unit 10: Illustrator (Celia)


This week we learnt more skills in Illustrator based on how to make a flower. We learnt how to use the rotate tool which helped us to make the petals in a quick way. We started by drawing a circle in the centre of the page and then drew another but in the shape of a petal. After we selected the two and aligned them using the centre tool. Once we did this we selected the petal, clicked on the rotate tool and pressed alt and clicked in the centre, this came up with the box you can see in the photo, we then wrote 360/24 this allowed us to quickly create petals. Once we had done the division we also pressed ctrl d that allowed to copy it the whole way around the circle. Continue reading “Unit 10: Illustrator (Celia)”

Unit 10: Production (Celia)

I’ve completed the first attempt at my video, it does still need to be edited and parts need to add in such as the character I made in Illustrator.

Unit 10: Research Evaluation (Celia)

For this project, I had to carry out research that had an influence on my work, this could mean looking at professional pieces to help me be inspired or research that helped me learn how I could do something within my project. This did mean that nearly all of my research was secondary because it was all used to help me know how to do the project. Continue reading “Unit 10: Research Evaluation (Celia)”

Unit 9: Group discussion (Greg)

Did anyone identify specific characteristics that will impact on their writing etc?

During the discussing, we all talked about the mediums we chose and the characteristics that relate to the formats. Such as we are all doing articles and so we talked about the characteristics related to the format, these included: 25 opening words (Hook), word choice and the 5 w’s. One person said that the use of the inverted pyramid meant they were able to priorities what’s more important, and so they could organise their work and therefore improve on it.

Unit 10: Illustrator (Celia)


f.pngWe learnt how to create gradients on Illustrator, we did so by selecting the swatches and drawing a rectangle on the page. Once doing this we selected the gradient tool from the tool bar, this meant we could control the colours and the amount of gradient, plus we could also add extra colour to the gradient. We could do so by dragging them from the swatches and placing them in the gradient section.

Unit 10: Illustrator (Celia)

This week we learnt more about illustrator and I then made a character to go along with my videos. We learnt how to use the pen tool, this then helps us create draw and type of illustration in a more freehand style.

Unit 10: Story Board (Celia)

This week I did a practice run on stop motion and also developed my overall idea for this product.

After researching some designers that gave me inspiration for how I could do my project,  tried to use some of the skills learnt and made my own short stop motion video.


I did so by using the app ‘stop-motion studio’ this allowed me to make a very quick stop motion video, it was also very simple to use. Once I had made the film I uploaded it to the sight Vimeo which allowed meant that I could use it as the platform to post my final product. This practice run allowed me to get an idea of how I can create my final product and also a place for me to post it. Continue reading “Unit 10: Story Board (Celia)”

This week we looked at radio features, this meaning the characteristics behind making a feature or drama. We then had to write a drama and a feature of own for radio. We also looked at what makes the two different.  Continue reading “Week Six: Unit 9, Radio Feature (Greg)”
