People nowadays have to admit that they will not be able to live without Smartphone. The dependence of Smartphone is much higher than we have imagined. Smartphone will have certain negative effect to people's life if it goes too far. Wherever we go, we can easily find that people are holding their Smartphone and hardly ever communicate with each other while using it. Using Smartphone seems to be the only way to pass the time. People even have to check their phone frequently without any purpose, or they will feel jittery. Smartphone marketing is getting bigger and bigger, new games and applications are inducing us to use them. Especially for young adult, they are not able to control themselves from playing Smartphone. Slowly they will be addicted to Smartphone, and it causes to neglect their studies and even commit a crime.
However, young adult who are addicted to Smartphone do not think about it seriously. Through this awareness campaign, we hope to let them know how it is dangerous and negative.
Statement of the problem
The movie is expected to be attractive to people, so we need variable angles to take videos and to make the movie rely on the story board. Because Rachel, our director, wants the plot of this movie be fluent to watch, so it will take time to finish. The short movie is supposed to be shown to our classmate, so we should be careful about some sensitive words and issues. (Eagle)
The movie should be educational for teenagers, show them some reasons that will be helpful to their lives later.
The movie should be controlled in 5 minutes to fit in the rule.
The movie is expected to be made understandable and easier to be accepted so that it can spread out, and can educate more kids.
The movie will use the tools from other places or people, but will not appears other ones.
The story line of the movie will be new and interesting for the audience to watch. And we will apply the knowledge learnt from drama class to make the movie more vivid and attractive.
Rachel: In order to make a good movie, video taking skill is the most essential thing. While taking a video, we should consider about the camera angle, light and other elements. We can combine some small stories in it to show the danger of Smartphone addiction. We should make a clear storyline. For our storyboard, it should involve all the detail movement and its reason and result. After finishing the storyboard, we should follow it to take video.
Eagle: The movie should be educational for teenagers, show them some reasons that will be helpful to their lives later. The movie should be controlled in 5 minutes to fit in the rule. The movie is expected to be made understandable and easier to be accepted so that it can spread out, and can educate more kids. The movie will use the tools from other places or people, but will not appear other ones. The story line of the movie will be new and interesting for the audience to watch. And we will apply the knowledge learnt from drama class to make the movie more vivid and attractive.
Winnie: The maximum time of movie should be 6 minutes. I think we should create an interesting and active story lime that could make people want to watch. In the movie we should show how excessively use of smart phones effects our lives so much. We can magnify the details of life to achieve the results that we want to express. The story line should be clear for people to understand. I think the movie should have strong warning significance and could arouse people’s feelings.
Jim: Though 5 minutes are not a very short time, we should make the video as short as possible. To show a clear story to audience with some details we should take many different scenes and pieces of video. Therefore we need a scripts to organized our video and make sure the video will not more than 5 minutes.
Rachel: In the process of making a video, actors should practice their lines. If you want to avoid getting many takes in your film, make them practice the lines and action combined. And do not trust what you see in the view finder. It is not always accurate, so remember to look with your own eyes, and review the film you take after each shot.
Winnie: How to Create an Effective TV Advertisement

Focus the camera on your product.
Decide on a big idea or campaign theme to use in your advertisement.
Choose the audio that you want to use in the commercial.
Come up with video that complements the audio you plan to use. Add computer graphics, if they fit your advertisement
Eagle: A short movie should have it’s own story line which is clear enough so that the audiences are able to understand. The actors and actress are expected to show all the emotions by facial expressions and body languages. In addition, the beginning and the end of the movie also should be wonderful, only like that, people will enjoy your movie.
Jim: The angle of camera is an important element of video taking. Use the eye level to shot we can see the things in the video as our normal life. If we want to use different angle of camera such as high angle and low angle we can have different view in the video.

After finishing watching the video, we think the movie goes smoothly and everyone can understand our story. However, we only have some words explanation at the end of the short movie; we can dub our voice in the movie to improve the quality of it.
Refining and Redesign
We try to make the end of the video better; I dub the voice in our short movie. Because our team members said they were not available during the holiday, we cannot retake the scene. And fix few small mistakes while I edit it.
At the beginning, I want to retake some scenes in our short movie. For example, Jim driving car’s scene, Eagle’s action was unnatural, however, no one reply policy maker anything during the holiday until Monday night, it was too late. The only thing that I can do was adding voiceover. While doing the group project, I think everyone should take their responsibility, not just throw the blame on a certain person. ement.htmlhttp://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-create-an-effective-tv-advertisement.html
