This the evaluation that I have produced for the final product that I have created for my final major project.
This is my bibliography for my overall project.
After showing my final edit to my tutor she suggested to alter my lower thirds by having them appear on the screen, rather than having any motion effects as it was to distracting when viewing. After re-editing my lower thirds and watching my final edit with them added in I am in agreement that it suits the tone of the documentary much more.
