We have made a storyboard for our narrative shoot to ensure we get all of our main shots and also some more experimental shots. This will be very helpful when filming so we don’t forget any important shots.
I am really looking forward to our shoot and feel very organized and prepared for it.
This is a video we have created showing the variety of shots and angles we got during our performance shoot.
Our performance shoot had a bit of a slow start, preparing where we wanted our performers to be positioned and we played around with the lighting throughout the process of the day to find out what worked well and what didn’t. In some of our shots the lighting is extremely warm and orange but we can later fix that in editing.
On the up side we got a very wide range of shots. My 2 favorite ones are our tracking shots and close-ups because I think they worked very well and look very professional with the equipment that we had.
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. We explained to Lenny our narrative ideas and he seemed to really like it and told us that it was all doable which is great.
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.
I have included a YouTube video to help us if we get stuck doing the colour grading when it comes to it, this will show us directly what steps to do when.
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.
Above is our lucid press and script for our genre analysis.
We have chosen an indie rock song as we feel the genre is very alternative and fun to be creative with.
We have chosen the song “Holding onto You” by twenty one pilots. We like this band a lot because they challenge a lot of societies norms with their style of music and the way that they present themselves, e.g. wearing makeup to be expressive. Indie rock artists try to stray away from mainstream artists and they pursue this with the way they express them selves, their style of music, what the sing about and also their advertising, e.g. album covers, posters.
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.
