Here is the final cut for The Slap. The majority of the changes I made were just cutting some parts of scenes out to get the run time under 6 minutes. I would have liked to cut it down more but I simply couldn't get rid of anymore otherwise the base plot would not have made sense. I also adjusted the brightness and contrast in a couple of shots.
Overall I am extremely happy with the final product and its a great feeling to see it finally completed. I set out to make a funny comedy film and I believe I have achieved that.
Here is my final draft for my magazine review. The prominent change I made was changing the main image. I thought the previous image didn't really show anything about the plot or type of film it was so I tried to choose a picture that in itself was funny but also hinted at the plot of the film. This picture shows how Jason becomes a third wheel.I also just proof read the writing and corrected a few spelling mistakes.
Here is my final draft of my movie poster. The only change I have made from the last draft is adding a review to the poster. This creates synergy between the poster and my movie review, as I have pulled the quote from my own review.
I am really happy with the poster overall. I would have liked to make the cutting of my face slightly cleaner around the edges but apart from that I am very satisfied with the end result.

Above is my third draft for my ancillary task. The only major change I have made is adding the two images of Harvey and Jess on either side of the poster. I decided to do this because the poster looked a little plain and bland before hand but also because they are major characters in the film and to follow convention they should be on the poster. I think my next draft will be my final one as I am quite happy with it now.
