Production project-progress (Worksheet 5)

I will be doing a video and an eBook about the life of Andrew Carnegie, his family, any significant events in his life and how he came to create Lauder/Carnegie college. It will include why his family moved to America, his passion for education and many other subjects. I will be doing this in a group with a few other people, we will do the research and get the footage together but we will make our own separate videos. The footage we will be getting will be of buildings that are linked to Andrew Carnegie,  such as Carnegie hall, his birthplace museum and any other buildings he is linked with.

Video mixer

video mixer diagram

 

This is a quite old, simple  piece of equipment that was mainly used in the 70’s and 80’s. We tried this piece of equipment in class and it is simple to use and it is quite useful. If you have a laptop and a camera connected with the mixer you can mix the two video sources together and then show the result of the mixing on the projector.
