I would like to include techniques such as jump cuts and stop motion animation, which is used in a lot of the videos I’ve looked at. My video will look homemade like the videos I have looked at, and this will reflect the style of indie music.
Get permission to use music
2) Location search and find people to be in video
3) Plan video, shot types etc
4) Organise when to meet with ‘singers’ and extras
5) Film over a few days, in different locations with different people
6) Look back at video clips that have been filmed, re-shoot if needed
7) Edit video
Permission to use music
Locations I’ve chosen to film outdoors in fields, playgrounds and parks. These locations reflect the fun and quirky style of indie music videos. Also, its easier to film outdoors as there is plenty of room and less people.
I will direct and edit the video.
There will be two main ‘singers’ who will lip sync
to the music.
About 2/3 other people to star as extras throughout
and 8/10 other extras to run in and dance at the
end of the video.
These are some of the people who will be involved in the video
Finding reliable extras to be in video and being able
to meet up enough to film video.
Having locations that are easy to get too, that have enough
space to film in and reflect the mood of video.
The possible use of props such as; balloons, party poppers.etc
Trying to get all the extras to the same location, so possibly
will just film a couple of locations with extras then the others
with just singer.
Health and safety issues:
Moving equipment like video cameras and tripods.
