In my opinion I think that you should have done your own visuals with the werewolf and the forest so that it was your own work and not somebody else’s from the internet. I think you should have added more buttons for the interactivity to be more fluent. Also add more sound to the story as the marks are towards the sound and interactivity. However all the buttons I did see are working properly and it was fun to read and listen to the sound you have used, all in all a good piece of evidence within the story. I loved the entertainment and what the objects were about.

The visuals aren’t consistent throughout the game and went from cartoon to photo realistic. All the buttons worked fine and I was able to follow the story with ease.

This interactive story is very short to what it shows at the beginning. The start of the story shows a wolf, this part of the story shows no dialog to what to click. Of course there is a button shape at the bottom right of the screen indicating that you have to click it. This interactivity for the story is very good as when you click the button it goes to the next scene. The next scene shows many different options. The options are shown in boxes that indicate that they are buttons. These buttons interact to go to 3 different scenes the scenes music does not change, throughout but it is just continuous. Within these 3 separate scenes there is a button which is not got a transparent background and could have been deleted to just show a clock as the image shows. Altogether this story has good music to show in the background whilst going through the story.

In your own words detail what you think the strengths and weaknesses of the production :
Strengths: Overall my strengths within this project are clearly my story, narrative and the ability to direct my production to the ideal audience. My peers gave me good for my story and narrative which I am pleased with as I used the story I wrote from another project to influence this project as I came up with a lot of ideas to use for this project. I also think I did well on the production stage as I was able to create my production in time as I used my planning produce efficiently. When making my interactive story it ran smoothly together and all of the buttons work, as well as leading the player to where I wanted it to, which I am very pleased with.

Weaknesses: I think my overall production was to a good standard but I think if I had better visuals and chosen more sounds effects it would be better overall. I kept my production simple and plain which I liked but I think it made the interactive story a little boring. I also think my images and visuals should have been a lot better, as do my peers, if I had spent more time with the details of my images then they would be better and more interesting. I think that my sound should have been a lot better as my peers rated it as ok which I am not very pleased with, I could have improved my sound by adding better music and possibly adding sound effects to the buttons or as the scene changes.

Think about the planning materials you created, did you follow them? If not why? Did the production change at all while you were making it?
I used my lesson planner to plan out my lessons and to help me to keep track of what I needed to do for that following day. I stuck to this planner because it helped me to remember what I needed to do and was a great time saver.

I also had a checklist to follow which had all the things I needed to complete on, I did follow this but didn’t follow the order it was written in because I found that my own way of doing the tasks were easier than following the checklist.

My production changed a lot from the planning to actually creating it. I changed a lot of small things to make my interactive story better or for things to fit into the time limit.

What did you learn through doing this project? Did you develop any skills?
Throughout this project I have learnt how to use some aspects on Flash and how to use the basic tools in this software. I have also learnt how to create an interactive story based on my own ideas and how to develop them. One important thing I have learn from this project is how to manage my time efficiently using my lesson plan. I think the things I have learnt from this project will help me to progress better within my next projects.
