Below is my storyboard for my stop motion sequences, as it is stop-motion, there is not much to describe through angles and placement of the cameras. A story-board is important as it gives me a clear plan for my shoots, and allows me to quickly complete the shots without wasting time.
We were not able to do the stop motion scenes due to a scheduling error, so instead we filmed some more performance shots, in these shots I used a Gimbal which makes creating a sense of movement easier. This is because it is able to keep the camera stable and make movements smooth. We did a total of 3 different shots, including A spinning chair shot, a walking shot and a shot where our star is stationary. My next target is to try and get the narrative done as soon as possible.
This is my second draft of my Music Video, In this draft I added content from 2 shoots, Both Performance. More importantly I still need to shoot and add the narrative. This draft is a definite improvement over the first one, featuring a new range of shots including movement ones. I also sued editing to make what were boring shots, and instead make them more interesting. My most important priority is getting my narrative filmed, as without it my music video is filled with black screens randomly.
It is important not to have full narratives in a music video as it creates enigma in the music video. This is so the audience will want to re-watch the music video, giving the company more money as a person re-watches it. Other music videos. Can also be extremely experimental or have amazing special effects (e.g. Peter Gabriels Sledgehammer) to keep making the viewer want to rewatch it.
