What I learned
I have never even opened Final Cut Pro-X so this first step was pretty big moment for me. I never knew that editing could be so simple and I quickly learned how to change from the select tool to the cut tool using keys rather than using the mouse which will help me to make the editing process a lot quicker. To move the mouse to the select tool you press fn A and for the blade tool you select fn B.

I learned which way to hold the camera by a trial and error process as I am used to taking photos and having freedom to hold the camera which ever way I please, so it was a bit of a shock when filming a moving picture that I was restricted to only being able to hold the camera landscape.
We had a short amount of time to create a story board and film our little piece. Our instructions were to film someone opening a door then walking across a room a then finally sitting down followed by a short dialogue.
These are my definitions and examples or some semiotic techniques.
