Shoot Reflection (Performance)

Overall, our performance was well planned before hand so we had our idea on what we wanted to do in our shoot and what we aimed to achieve. For example, we had our visual shot list present on our phones, we had our meeting with out performer so she knew what we she had to do and what we wanted her to do, in addition, to having the correct mise-en scene in terms of costume because of the meeting that we had previously, because of this we were able to do our shoot effectively and efficiently. However, I feel in our shoot we didn’t exactly know how to actually to record those shoots that we wanted in our visual shot list, so in terms of that issue we should’ve done some more research so we knew how to record those technical shots, consequently for our next shoot we will be more prepared in terms of that aspect.

Specsavers Creative Team Feedback

This was the feedback that we received on our ideas and pitch that we had for our music video, me and Noah decided to record him whilst he was telling his feedback as it would be more efficient for us. This talk helped us a lot on how we should structure our video.

To summarize the feedback :

  • Have a clear story visually in mind
  • Visually show how the narrative interlinks and intertwines together.
  • We need to establish the relationship between the two performers.
  • Put the man low in the frame of a wide shot.
  • The possibility of showing the girl in a photo frame with the boy to convey this link.
  • Write down a clear storyboard of what we want to happen in the video.
  • Think of a way he can be reminded of her.
  • Do a flash back if possible.
  • Don’t out that they can come together.
  • If using flashbacks, delineate what is past and present, whether it be through colour or an effect.
  • There needs to be more of a story.
  • Have lots of closeups.
  • Have it run longer than you think you need.
  • Have a list of shots.
