This was our final schedule this was what we made after we asked all of our actors what days they could do. Working around all of the actors we managed to find the days that would work best for everyone and would allow us to be able to film to make the best quality movie we could make.
We went round to all of our actors/actress’s and asked them what days would work best for them. The two main actors were what we needed to most as they would be on camera the most. After the information was gathered we could work on the final schedule.
We had asked mutliple people to do a questionnaire to show us what our audience would be and what they would have wanted. This is an example of one of our questionnaires that was filled in. We could see from the rest of these that music is a very key part to a dramatic movie. We also know that the camera and the angles that it holds is also very important to the audience.
After we had wrote multiple drafts of our script this is our final script that we will be using in our short film. In this final piece we had added some run time to the movie to make sure it is long enough. We also got rid of an argument between the Foster parent and the Foster child as we didn’t see a reason for keeping this when it was not needed. We also gave an extra scene to the bullies to show their connection with the Foster child. This meant that they were not just some random teenagers and were actually shown with some meaning in the film.
When we just started to plan our short film we decided to look into short films that we could take insperation from after looking for a short film that went into the right plot concept we found this short film ReMoved. This is about a young girl and her young brother who get placed into the foster care system. After a lot of different familys she finds a nice home and is soon reunited with her brother. In this movie we also looked at the shots wanting to use certain styles of how they filmed it. But it also showed us what we should avoid doing. As in this short film they seemed to linger on certain shots for to long this made the run time longer then it needed to be. It also made the shots become uneffective as they started to lose their significance. In our short movie we will also use more dialogue to make our character more likeable.
As you can see above I have placed my first attempt at writing my short film script. I was not happy with how it turned out as it was filled with to many sub-plots and ideas that would not work in the end of it. So as you can see in my second draft I have trimmed away all of the fat of the movie and gotten down to the bone of it. Then after using the skeletol structure of the movie premise I then added in more detail. Not to much to make the movie confusing or annoying to keep up with but enough to develop the characters and make them likeable. This is present more in the third draft I have made.
I have done a large amount of research into different distributors of music magazines in the UK. After all my research, I then went and researched into people who would distribute my anime magazine. I eventually did find a few distributors who would distribute my magazine. The distributors are all internet based the first one is called KidFenris and the other is called NeoMag and the last one is called Otakumode. These are all online distributors who focus on selling anime and manga style magazines. These are the perfect distributors as the people who are aiming at are all people who will use a lot of the internet. Also, the genre that we have made the magazine, Nightcore, matches the style of Anime/Manga.
A different kind of distributor that I have also looked at is a company called Crunchyroll. These are people who show Anime on their websites and people can watch it for free if they sit through adverts. This would be a good place to distribute our magazines, or even an advert promoting our magazine, as this matches our genre for our music magazine.
The people who I distribute my magazine will sign up my magazine with IPSO who will monitor my magazine. IPSO monitors all kinds of magazines and makes sure that they follow specific rules. Some of these rules are things where they make sure celebrities children are kept safe by blurring their faces. Also people who are in court cases are protected by hiding their names. If anyone complains a good reason to ISPO then they are allowed to take the magazine down.
As my distributor will sign my magazine up with them then I will need to make sure that I follow all of ISPO rules and conditions.
In my photo’s that I took for my music magazines I relied on mainly the outfits to make the images. So I constantly made sure that the outfits that the models were in were always made to look Anime to make sure the style was always there. In my front cover and my contents page I made sure to add props to show that it is a music magazine. To do this I used a sound equalizer and a DJ board. I chose these as these are used to make Nightcore music which is the genre I have chosen.
My hypothesis is that many people who read Anime music magazines are in their teenage years and maybe even just the young adults. After I made this hypothesis I then handed out a questionnaire to a multiple number of people. After they were handed out I took them back and looked at the results. It showed that my hypothesis was correct the most people who read or even watch Anime of any kind was people in their teenage years. I then got a group of people of a range of ages in a small focus group. I asked the group who reads anime or anime music magazines. The ones that answered that they did was again the teenagers or the young adults. This proves my hypothesis that Anime music magazines are more read by teenagers and young adults.
