PROPS• The fact that my music video consists almost entirely of close ups of the performers, props are scarce.• However, after finishing editing my video I felt that I needed to add more to it, therefore I took a camera home and filmed a persons foot tapping to the beat of the song. Therefore I needed a persons shoe or trainer.
CLOTHING• These were the only props that I had to consider when filming my music video.• The genre of the music video dictated which and what style of clothing my performers would wear.• The Indie style genre meant that the clothes had to compliment this genre, so I got my performers to wear Indie style clothing when filming them.
CLOTHING• For example: I got one of my performer to wear a checked shirt so that they would look as if they were part of the Indie ‘scene’. Also a Barbour jacket is worn frequently by this group of people so was essential for my performer to wear it.
CLOTHING• The style of shoe was very important as I featured several close ups of it throughout. Vans are typically worn by the Indie genre but so are boots so I was indecisive about which to use, so I asked friends and teachers and used Vans as it was of popular opinion.
