It is now time to evaluate this whole journey I have been involved in and I’m so lucky to have been involved in the project that I have been, Sarah and I worked so well together and I think we have really working as one on this project. For me when I thought of this project I was scared but actually when you take a piece at a time it isn’t that scary. We have a lovely short film, a box for our production folders, a website and a busting blog to show for it.
It has been an interesting journey and I have learnt a lot about projects like this (how bloody expensive they can be) how much work you need to put in and what you really want to do when you finish. When I first started to think about the idea’s I always decided I wanted this project to benefit me, I wanted this project to help me move out of the university, do the transition from moving from one place I know to finding a place I was unbelievably scared of being but needed to move to there to start to look at getting a job which is why I decided I wanted this to benefit me as much as I can, which is why I chose that for my fmp I wanted to work on someone else’s project and be a producer for this.
I want to benefit and I think this has defiantly helped me a lot realise what goes into the job and role of a producer and I’m so glad I made the decision to go with this role for my final media project of my degree because it has taught me a lot of what is needed for my role and I have learnt a lot from what is needed from me to get to where I need and want to be in regards to finding my role I know what journey it has to be and what is expected from me know which I can thank this module, I wanted this project to be the most beneficially and I think it has just done that.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this project and this module and this over all year I have bettered my skills a lot when it comes to equipment, the way things show be seen, editing, website making, professionalism, how to communicate with people, business and organisations. I have learnt the knowledge the experience all which will benefit me completely.
I have learnt so much from this year the experiences from being a co head to organise a showing for our degree exhibition, to be a producer and one part of the production company Pepper&mint Productions, to helping with the casting and extra co-ordinator for Rudy, to help be involved with some student projects and to help the first year for my advantage learn all about the TV studio and what it is all about when it comes to the format assessment.
Each part has taught me something knew and I have loved it. I have really learnt a lot and I have gained so much experience, this year has been everything I thought it would be and I can’t believe we are finally at the end. This is super scary!! but I have loved it all.
I have gained so much and from this module, this project, the last year and the whole degree… it has all been amazing and I have learnt so much and I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience and I feel ready to move on and find myself in the real world and get a career in the media industry.
