Video Production

Provide a brief summary of the services offered by U Tube.

YouTube is a website that allows people to share video clips. Anyone can view videos (though some are R18) or you can create an account to upload and share your videos. This also allows you to rate videos or write a comment about them. If you think one of your friends would enjoy a video you have watched you can email them the link

You can search for videos of interest by entering keywords into the search bar or you can watch a channel which is videos posted by the same person. There are also groups which contain videos of similar topics.
There are many more features in the YouTube world, but that's the basics.

Provide a brief account on how the use of planning (storyboarding and scripting) aided your group’s short film.

Our group used a storyboard to plan our short film. A storyboard is a series of drawings; each with a short description, that shows the basic progression of the film. These drawings were then used as a guide when filming. It made the filming process easier and a lot quicker because we knew exactly what we needed to film before we started.
The storyboard was also helpful in the editing process. It gave us a clear picture of how all the separate clips needed to fit together to create the finished product.
