Radio Breakfast Show Comparison (Unfinished)

Radio One Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw Analysis

The show starts with intro music that is upbeat and lasts about a minute. The music is upbeat because it is to wake people up and to grab their attention. After the introduction music you next hear Nick Grimshaw greet the listeners and introduces himself, the show and the time and date. A song is then played but he introduces what the song is at it starts to play.

After the song he reminds us what the song was and says the time and date again as well as say the name of the show again. After that a different song is played which is a different kind of song to appeal to a more diverse audience. Once the music is over, he says the name of the song and band again then starts talking to the listeners as if it was a casual chat. While he is talking there is background music, which sounds like techno, plus it slowly gets quieter as the presenters speak.

When they talk they try and sound like their targeted audience which is a younger

Interview Analysis

Analysis of Bon Jovi interview:

The interview is set on a stage with a homely feel with sofas, coffee tables, flowers and patterned wallpaper. The lighting is bright with what appears to be stage lights the brightness from the open window. The sound quality of the interview is clear and at the correct volume. You can hear no background noise or interference during the interview and is spread evenly through out the studio so you don’t hear more sound on the left than the right.

The lay out is the two interviewers on the left hand side and the two interviewees on the right hand side. The camera shots change from open shots that shows all of the interviewers and the scenery and changes to medium close shots of individuals when they are either asking or answering a question and when they are interacting with the person talking such as making eye contact and nodding. They use good rule of third angles when having the medium close up shots by ruling the eye contact to the upper third of the screen as well as position the individual facing each other. The interview also uses panning shots of still images while the interview is happening.

The body language of Bon Jovi is positive; making good eye contact and facial expressions. He is giving clear answers as well as making the interviewers respond in an almost debatable way. They talk about past records, their career history and ticket prices that created the debatable conversation.

Analysis of Tenacious D interview:

This interview is set on the stage of a late night chat show. It is set with the interviewer on the right behind a large table and the interviewees on the left on singular sofa chairs.  They have a background of a night sky by the sea with two islands either side illuminating themselves with lights. The sound quality is clear with no background interference however you can hear the live studio audience in the background with their laughter.

The camera angles used in this interview use the two person shot where you see both the interviewer and the interviewees and switches when the interviewee is talking to a medium wide shot close up. The only other camera angle used is when Jack Black does his roll and the camera angle becomes a lead room shot. The camera lines up well with the interviewer and interviewee keeping at the same eye sight level and showing them facing each other. When the camera is facing the interviewer, he is placed in the center of the shot which is not strictly obeying the rule of third but when the camera is on the interviewees the rule is obeyed.  The lighting is a well lit stage with targeted light on the individuals on the stage to make sure that they are clearly seen and that there are little shadows to disrupt the picture.

During the interview, Jack Black talks about things such as where there band started off, the what he things about other bands and some stunts that he used to do during his concerts which he later on preforms. We also learn during this interview that his band will be playing later on in the show. The body language given off by Jack Black is positive with good eye contact, hand movements and interaction. He doesn’t show the typical sitting up straight posture but instead leaning back with one of his legs crossed showing he is taking this interview in a much more casual manner.

Audio Samples

Loud Audio: In this audio, I was in the student union area standing in the canteen part; the area was noisy on and off. I described the sounds, smells, feelings and lighting as well as background sounds such as music. It picked up a lot of sounds and was very clear, however I do think that I could of picked a louder setting as well as waiting for the room to be louder which it was at some points between recording.

Quiet Audio: In this audio, I was in a corner of a hallway; the area was very quiet when no one was in it however echoed when people were walking past. I described the feelings, sounds and surroundings of the area I was in. Even though the area was quiet, you can hear background noise of other people which can be a bit noisy so next time I should pick a better quiet place.

Outside Audio: In this audio, I was outside next to the construction area at Canterbury College. The area was open and wide with buildings next to me where brick laying is practised. I described the noises, lighting, area, temperature and the feel of the surroundings. The area was a good location but I think I could of been more descriptive about the area in general and I repeated myself at the end mentioning the weather feeling twice. Overall, I think I painted a good picture of the settings I was talking about however I do think I could of improved in several ways such as making it sound like I was describing it to a person, which I will do for a future task that has similar objectives.

Evaluation

Week 1:

Evaluation:

Objective of task: The task was to come up with a question that would lead to open answers and obtain a lot of information. We had to ask people around the college these questions and record them in a vox interview style format. Once recorded we had to create a video by editing the footage we recorded then upload to YouTube.

The effectiveness of the group work was decent. We did well creating and asking questions to people as well as getting a wide variety of people for our video with different answers.

The skills I learnt from this task is the correct to ask questions when interviewing people and also how to create good open questions that flow into more questions naturally for more information and data.

A problem I had with this task was that the editing software was buggy and I couldn’t edit the footage properly because of this. This caused the visuals to look out of focus and lower quality and the audio to sound low quality with a lot of background noise. Another problem was that the cameras didn’t focus well when recording causing the visuals to look lower detailed then they first appeared. I managed to make the video look a bit better with editing, however due to the software being faulty it was limited.

The feedback I received for the video was good. That the visuals was a bit off and the sound needed work but it was understood that the software was faulty. People also gave me positive feedback about the questions asked and the amount of people we asked them too.

I think I can improve by getting better footage such as close ups and getting interviews in a quieter area to obtain less background noise. I also think my editing could have been a lot better both audio and visual wise.

Week 2:

Evaluation:

What was the task: The task was to come up with a topic and create some open questions to ask people in a interview. The style of interview we were to use was to show both the interviewee and the interviewer and show the connections and interactions between the both of them. We then had to edit the footage on Adobe Premiere and upload it to YouTube.

As a group of 5 we worked well. Each of us had a go at interviewing and holding the camera to get the correct angles and positions. We ended up recording four different people which gave us four different bunch of answers. After that we all selected one of the recordings each to edit so we could show every interview and how they can be different.

The skills I learnt through this task were the way to record in this style of interview. To have the rule of third and eye to eye contact within the shot. I also learnt the correct way to edit the footage and cut the parts that weren’t necessary.

A problem we faced was that in some of the interviews there was a bit of background noise that couldn’t of been avoided. To solve this we could of interviewed someone else in a quieter location, however this was difficult because the locations were mostly loud around the college and the number of people to interview was limited due to the awkward timing.

The feedback I received from my tutor was that the footage and editing was good. However the my tutor stated that it could of been improved if my footage had more interaction with the interviewee and interviewer. Also, my footage was very long to begin with so had to be redone after I received feedback to cut more to make it transition better and the video shorter.

I think next time I will improve by using different effects instead of the same ones I always use. I will also improve by having more interaction with the interviewee and and interviewer as well as having some jump cuts smoothly edited in to show this interaction at the same angle.

Week 3:

Evaluation:

1/ The objective of the task was to record another interview like the interview we did the previous week but this time correcting what we did incorrectly last week. The chosen topic we decided to interview on was “films” and we created some open questions to ask the interviewee. We worked in groups of three, One being the interviewee, one being the interviewer and one working the camera.

The group worked really well. Everything was done correctly. The interviewer asked the questions clearly, had good connection and interaction with the interviewee and was well positioned. The interviewee was also well positioned, spoke clearly, had good eye contact and gave good long answers. My camera work was good as it was clear quality both visual and audio, had good angles and had good rule of third.

I learnt what I did wrong in the last interview and corrected them this time, with better cuts, smoother editing, better audio with less background noise and better overlay interaction. During this task we didn’t encounter any issues or problems.

The feedback received from my tutor was positive. She liked the video and interview in general. The only thing she said that she would change for next time is to have a bit sharper cuts after questions to get faster answers.

I would improve maybe on maybe the audio being a bit more clearer as well as maybe asking more questions to make the interview a bit longer.

 

Week 4:

(Was ill this week and didnt obtain the sutff to do greenscreen work, will catch up in the future)

 

Week 5:

1/ The objective of the task was to record a simple every day task and record a tutorial using the editing and filming style of continuity making it look fluid and smooth with no jump cuts with either the visual or audio. Once the recording and editing was done it was to be uploaded to YouTube.

2/ The effectiveness of the group was good. We were in a group of 5 and had someone assigned to do a specific role so everyone was involved. I was the camera man so my responsibilities were to get the right angles, quality and shots when recording. The other group members roles were to direct, check sound and help participate with the actual hair plaiting.

3/ The skills I learnt through this task was the 180 degree angle way of shooting to make the recording look more smooth and correct from a viewers point of view. I learnt about different styles of recording and am now more comfortable with it as well as the way of editing it.

4/ A problem that I faced personally was that the editing software was a bit faulty and kept dropping the audio/lagged behind audio. I fixed this by rendering the entire work area more often then usual which seemed to work however made it a lot more time consuming.

5/ My feedback from my tutor was that the end video was a good smooth tutorial and I completed all the necessities needed for this task. The audio was good with good volume music and dialog as well as good speed effects of the hair plaiting. The angles of the recording were all good and got a balanced prospective of the hair plaiting from different even angles.

6/ Next time when I do a similar task I think I will improve by using longer backing music instead of changing half way even though it blended in well. I would also find it easier to have a tripod for a more steady shot instead of holding it by hand.
