We had a man from specsavers come in and review our pitches as well as give us advise on what we could change and how to produce what we wanted to do, mainly on the colour spread as that is the main element of our music video.
When Lenny was showing us how to do the colour spread Sasha wrote down notes on how to do it to help us in the future as it’s fairly complicated to us.
Here is an image of our notes.
Overall he loved our idea as it is challenging and creative and we look forward to trying his technique out.
This is our production meeting agenda for our performance shoot next week. We have done this as it will help us to stay organised and we could use it as a checklist to make sure we have everything prepared in time and we know what we’re doing.
My group and I created this shot list of conventional shots for an indie rock music video. This exercise will help us when it comes to filming our own music video so we know to use the generic shots but can also use some more experimental and funky shots.
This is our 20 second practice shoot at performance for our music video, This was filmed and edited in around 3 lessons. We did this as it was important for us to understand how much footage we needed and how to film it properly. e.g Filming the whole song in one angle before changing it to another instead of just doing a small section.
Doing this I learnt a lot of new things and discovered a lot more about premiere pro and filming too. It was a challenge but we had fun producing it and adding in all our different ideas.
What went well:
We used a variety of shots
We were able to add in drama using different effects
We had a lot of camera movement during shots
What to improve:
Film more footage
Have more fast pace cutting to match the fast pace song
Lip syncing was in time with the music
Have better mise-en-scene
Overall i’m happy with how this turned out considering the time we had to complete it and look forward to creating a more professional music video.
Since I am working with both Haygan and Sasha I have looked over their pitches and reviewed there ideas .I found Haygan’s pitch very creative and interesting. I like his song choice, although it’s a bit alternative I think the mise-en-scene could get very creative.
