YouTube is a video sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips.
You tube technology displays a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos.
Unregistered users can watch most videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos. Some videos are available only to users of age 18 or older (e.g. videos containing potentially offensive content).
Related videos, determined by title and tags, appear onscreen to the right of a given video. In YouTube's second year, functions were added to enhance user ability to post video 'responses' and subscribe to content feeds.

Task Five (Blog Posting): Provide a brief account (1-2 paragraphs) on how the use of planning (storyboarding and scripting aided your groups short film.)

A story board is used before you began filming as a way to visually plan how your short film will be produced. A storyboard is laid out so that you can write down what is going to be in the shot but also how it’s going too look with a box that allows you to draw your shot as a starting point. Our group focused on Student life. Our shots involved areas around the polytechnic which gave a strong sense of being a student. This ranged from The local well known dairy and coffee shop to the closest flat where we focused on the mess and the electronic devices around the house. We stuck to our storyboard, but also deleted a few shots which we thought weren’t as relevant. Editing was also done to some of the videos as we had included people’s faces and bits that took along time to get to the point.
