MEDIA STUDIES PRACTICAL PRODUCTION

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Shahzad Ahmed 11KR GCSE Media Studies Practical Production Coursework - Supporting Account Our whole group made the decision about filming our horror trailer together. We brainstormed all of our ideas, gathered our information together, and all took a fair part in deciding how the film was going to be shot, where, and so on.
