In this lesson we hope to complete our garage band to make th soundtrack and also finish editing the footage to make our opening.

We managed to finish our garage band so we now have a soundtrack for our opening we also finished editing the footage we do have, we put all the credits onto the footage and muted the extra sounds which were in the background (toilets flushing/people talking/doors opening) as we did not want these to be heard. When we put the soundtrack with the opening it fitted well as the soundtrack is quite dark and simple, which is what we wanted it to sound like. The only thing missing is the gunshot at the end, this is because we accidentally deleted it when we deleted the end of the soundtrack as it was too long for our footage and we were unaware that it was there.

In todays lesson Nicole and Becki are going to be working on the soundtrack using garage band. Fern and Olivia will be editing the footage that we already have. As we have not got all the appropriate props needed, we cannot film all of the extra footage that we wanted to film although we are going to film extra parts such as a tap running and a lock changing from green to red as we wanted the extra footage to have the credits playing over as we did not want them to be playing in the part where our main character, Olivia, is leaving the toilet. Also in this lesson we are going to try and finish as much of the editing as we can so that we can concentrate on finishing our soundtrack and then adding finishing details.
