Meeting MinutesWednesday 30th NovemberToday, we had a group meeting for an hour & 40 minutes in our media classroom. As agroup, we discussed and decided our final song choice. Before, we had already decided thatour song would be chosen from the famous pop girl band ‘The Saturdays’. This is because,from the feedback we received from our classmates when we presented our proposal, theytold us they thought it was best to create a music video of one of ‘The Saturdays’ songsbecause we are a group of girls and would represent the girl band and would fit with any ofthe songs.We was them contemplating on whether to use the song ‘Ego’ or ‘Up’, both by ‘TheSaturdays’. We finally chose the song ‘Ego’ as we thought we will be able to create a strongstoryline and have lots of creative ideas for the video. We decided not to choose ‘Up’because we felt that we would not really be able to create much of a storyline to the song.Also during this meeting, we made targets to meet/achieve by our next meeting which are;we aim to create a storyboard, have a firm idea of what we will be doing in our music videoand we aim to sort out what lyrics we will be lip syncing.Tuesday 6th DecemberToday, we had another group meeting for an hour & 40 minutes.
