For our test shoot, we already had a variety of shots that we planned to use inspired by our pallet. We then chose a snippet of the song “On my Mind” by Jorja Smith.
Why on earth would I leave
If you were everything I wanted you to be?
When I saw what you did, who you were with
Got me questioning the things that I believe
To make sure everything went to plan we planned to bring:
A charged battery
Use a chair for tracking shot
Below is the footage that we got during our test shoot, which we then took to Premiere Pro to edit into a small sequence. Overall I am happy with our edit and think it was successful.
What went well:
The variety of shots that we had
The lipsyncing with the lyrics
The edit with the beat
It follows the genre of music chosen
It would have been better if:
We had even more of a variety of shots
Using more effects and filters
Pan and track shots smoother
Maybe added a few clips without the singing in
The representation of our star went well, as our confident, carefree star image came across and we managed to get enough coverage to convey her star image brand. However, for the future, we should think about getting even more footage to get the best shot out of each take.
I think my montage shows does show that the best things in life are free and has an impact after people have watched it. I think there is a story going through the video of one person helping the other to discover what good things can be done to make other people happy such as giving a present or surprise to someone else or just even holding the door open. At 0:18 in the video the man receives a cake from a friend and he looks pleased and shocked after taking it, this shows you can do something nice and it will have an impact on someone once doing something they might go do the same or something else to help someone feel better that day. I used the same scenes but I took it from different angles to get different perspectives from each person as it gives a better understanding of how the people feel. Another idea we had in mind was someone who seem upset but then received a hug from someone else to cheer them up.
