Conclusion to this question
In conclusion, the range of technologies I have used has made my research, production and evaluation stages a great deal easier than it would have been in the era I am actually paying homage to in my products! Such technologies have enabled me to produce work of a standard that school students would only have been able to dream about then. It has been particularly useful that a lot of the programmes I have been using can export files into other formats that various other programmes can recognise. Without this facility it would have been very difficult to co-ordinate work done at home and at school.
If I were to do this project again, I could make it even easier on myself by using my phone a lot more, as it has access to the internet. If I had used my phone more, I could have kept track of my blog more regularly and therefore been able to upload posts more regularly. This would have saved me a lot of valuable time.
It would also have been easier with access to Premier Pro at home, as I would have been able to edit footage more regularly and make sure everything was completed in good time. However, this was not possible, as my laptop does not have the space to facilitate Premier Pro.
Overall, the technologies I have used have helped me create a range of interesting visual media which is appropriate to, and likely to appeal to, people of today who are used to being bombarded by sophisticated media products.
Perhaps the only disadvantage I can identify with all of this is that the technologies available mean that editing can always be done with such ease that it becomes difficult to reach the point where the decision is made that a product is complete and in its final form.
However, despite this, I still managed to complete my products in time and I certainly would not have been able to produce my advanced portfolio without the full range of the technologies outlined.
