The final stretch

The filming is done and the editing is nearly complete for Operation Croack. After a month of blood sweat and re-filming we are on the verge of completing our sequence. The editing process has been long and tiring but necessary to create the best filmography we can. The tasks throughout the process are to be uploaded as well as the final product in the next few days. Now to evaluate and bring much needed rejuvenation to this blog.

Editing Begins

In today's lesson, Adam, Juber and I began to edit Operation Croak. We have all the footage in order and have begun to cut and edit when necessary. We now need to add voice-over to certain clips and utilise the transition effects offered by the software we are using. We also need to create the titles before the live action footage.

We completed 98% of the filming for Operation Croak. We were happy with the footage that was recorded. We now need to dub it with a voiceover and edit it with the necessary animations, effects and soundtrack to make it as good as possible.

Casino Royale Sound screening

In today's lesson, we watched a behind the scenes documentary which explained the importance of sound, music and foley in the film Casino Royale.  I am going to use what we've learnt to help us when creating the title sequence for Operation Croak and the sound of it in post production

Draft Script and Sound research

Adam and I completed a draft script for the title sequence of Operation Croak. We decided upon dialogue and how the title sequence would look visually. This included at what point to transition from animation to live-action and what music we would use.

Filming preliminary task

Jake, Michael, George and I filmed our adaptation of "The Package". I believe the filming was successful however it took many takes to get the continuity correct which took quite some time. This will now be edited and evaluated.


Adam and I created a survey as part of our research for our final task. We asked 20 people from various ages several questions such as they're favourite film genre, archetypal character and what music they'd prefer to have.


When the world is against you, how far would you go to get revenge? A pulsating, bone crunching,edge of your seat blockbuster. Operation Croak
