Evaluation Feedback: 18/20

The commentary really is an excellent response to questions 1 & 2.
Your Scribd documents are also an excellent response to 3 & 4. I think had the full response been on the commentary it would be worthy of full marks but it is still an excellent overall 18. Well done!

Evaluation Proposal

For my evaluation I will record a directors commentary over the top of my film, this will be shown in the dvd extras. The voice over will talk the audience through the film, commenting on the use of production techniques, how I achieved certain shots and what I wanted to accomplish in each individual scenes. The film can be paused by me when I want to go into deeper analysis and will hep the understanding of the film.
The commentary will also cover the audience aspect of the film and show how I targeted my audience and what changes were made to help the understanding of the audience.
