- Explore my chosen genre further
For this module i plan on focusing my practical project around the horror genre – Which i spend a lot of time on last year, and taking a step further when using it as an advetisment.
- Work with a bigger crew
On many of my previous projects i have kept to a moderately small crew, as much as it is easier to direct less people, i feel working with more people from various backrounds will certainly help shape my project more, and will also give me the opertunity to take advantage with the talent who are around me this year for this MA.
- Overcome my fear of public speaking – about my own work, pitching
I have always been very nervous about speaking about my work to lrge group of people – especially pitching. I am hoping throughout the course we will all be able to pitch/share what we are working on in a professional sense, not only for experience but to overcome that fear of ‘all eyes on you’. I am also attending a few talks at the beginning of this module to help specifically with this, which will benefit me in the future.
- Build an editing orientated show-reel/profile
My present showreel is to show all of the skills i have gained through filmmaking. However, since trailer cutting and advertisement in film is my main goal this year, i am hoping by the end of the course i will also have a seperate profile to show specifically what i can do with a piece of work and advertise it correctly to the appropriate audience.
- Have more work experience on other students/companies projects
This year i plan on being involved in as many projects as i can, sharing and helping with whatever skills are required from me, I also have a great opportunity to intern in Film & Media for National Trust – Working mostly on moving image adverts for their upcoming events.
