Preparation For Our Shoots

As you can see, Millie and I created a Facebook chat so we could organise a time and place when we were all free. I also looked though our main characters Instagram and picked a few outfits I thought would look well with our theme, this helped our actors as they knew exactly what we wanted them to wear.

Feedback from teacher

This video is the feedback we have received from our teacher about our first draft.

He has watched our video and given us targets to improve and other positive feedback for when we come to developing our video.

Things that went well:

  • good footage
  • nice use of frames and cimatry in our shots
  • nicely light shots
  • a variety of different shots
  • the close up with the shadow across her face
  • the low angle close up of Grace in frame within a frame
  • like the edit

Things to work on:

  • the idea of having an argument, maybe change some shots and try portray their argument in a different way.
  • more quick, snappy and upbeat
  • give our audience time to watch the narrative
  • see more of the musicians

All these improvements will help me and Millie when it comes to our editing and has helped us a lot with how to improve our first music video draft.


Production Skills Evaluation 1

Throughout creating my draft music video process, ‘You Know You Like It’ by Alunageorge, I have started to improve my:

  • Editing skills when using Premiere Pro.
  • The variety of different shots when filming in my location shoots.
  • How to sync the videos we are using to the music.
  • How to use the different settings on the camera.
  • Knowledge and understanding on Premiere Pro

Overall, all these skills have helped me to create my drafts on Premiere Pro which helps to develop my skills further and also gain more confidence when experimenting with them. I have learnt some new techniques during the process of my music video, for example:

  • Edit to the beat of the music
  • Include as many close ups as you can
  • Take too many shots rather than too little
  • Making sure you have enough footage for narrative and preformance
  • Making sure the theme/narrative makes sense to your audience

Throughout the process of our music video, my teacher and peers have helped my to progress my work further by giving us targets to focus on and key areas where we need to make changes, we have taken all the advise we have received on board and progressed further.

Here I have written a few things on Premiere Pro which I have learnt and is useful when Millie and I are editing our drafts.

Music Video Draft 2 Includes Narrative

I am very pleased with our second draft, we have improved from our last shoot and took onboard what our peers and teacher said to do to help upgrade our music video.

Things that went well:

  • The variety of different shots
  • The lighting of each shot
  • The location of both shoots
  • Grace’s lip sync
  • Good mes en scene
  • Our editing to the breat

Things that didn’t go so well and we need to improve on:

  • More close ups
  • More shots of her dancing
  • Reaction shots



Shoot Evaluation (Performance)

What went well:

  • The variety of different shots
  • Mes en scene
  • Unique locations which fit well with our theme and the band
  • Grace worked well with our directions we gave her and was good at acting in the character we asked her to
  • Everyone turing up on time
  • Making sure we have all the equipment we need

What we need to do to improve:

  • Get more close ups
  • Making sure every shot is in focus
  • Make sure we understand how to us the camera
  • Trying to arrange a time for everyone to meet when everyone is free

Audience Ideologies

As you can see, I have used the YouGov website to find out for about my target audience. This information tells me that my audience are female and around the age of 25-39 and typically live in London. Furthermore, it tells me there interests for example, what music and films they watch, this will help me with my music video asĀ  can research other similar artists and watch their music videos which I can take inspiration from.
