While I felt satisfied with my cut I handed in, after our presentations in class, with Producer Adam Farrington-Williams & RMIT Media Academic Sophie Langley, I am now able to see and create a checklist of things to change before the final cut presentations – These being:
- To change the dialogue at the end of the film, to allow to audience to sit on what I am saying, as well as being able to digest the children who are speaking, rather than have them as a background feature.
- There is a lot of sound tweaking to do, as this was not something I focused on in the first two cuts of my film – mostly because I didn’t wish to waste time finessing those things when I hadn’t come to a full picture lock.
- & finally, I need to add some sort of call-to-action at the end in text. I’m thinking a quote about humanity of the sorts. I’m not interested in adding further dialogue in the end, as Sophie suggested, just as I think the final statements from me are powerful enough to stand alone, and for that fact that I think that the lacking in a call-to-action in my dialogue works to help the audience understand the point of my film – That being, that there is nothing that I can say to make anyone do anything about it, we must take global action together. All I can do is present people with the current global situation and let the people ponder the question of what can we do?
