IdeasSomeone runs through some woods with peoplechasing them firing lasers towards him.The person being chased then runs into a buildingand drinks from a chemical on a desk.At this point, the chasers burst in. The chemicalmakes the drinker invulnerable to weapon fire, sothey get shot at and nothing happens to them.The person who was originally chased then starts afirefight and ends up killing the attackers.
Effects DemoSome of the scenes I discussed in the last sliderequire some special effects to be used. I haveevaluated the feasibility of these effects andhave compiled a small preview of some of theseeffects:
Props and LocationThe location that I will use to film the video willbe the woods next to college and parts of thecollege building itself.I will also need some glasses full of colouredliquid (food colouring with water or squash) toact as chemicals and a “laser gun” (water pistol).
How my Research helpedMy research into drum and bass videos gave me lots ofinspiration. The ideas for the location came from lookingat the location of lots of videos on the internet – lotsseem to be based in the middle of nowhere inwoodlands.The idea for the main plot taking a slight sci-fi twist wasfrom the music track itself. The music track sounds a bitsci-fi like. As Andrew Goodwin states; “a music video is aclip in which that music is made visual”, the music videoshould respond to the clip of music so the sci-fi twist tothe plot is responding to the sci-fi sound of the music.
Target AudienceThe target audience for my product would beyounger males, roughly 16-25 years old.They would be the sort of people who listen tothis genre of music or would watch sci-fi films.
Health and Safety issues- Filming in the woods means debris and logs on the floor that I need to make sure no one trips over- Equipment needs to be covered over or otherwise protected to make sure that no rain can damage it- We need to watch out for people cycling and walking through the woods so that we don’t cause an obstruction or accident- Care needs to be taken when carrying tripods around so that no one gets hit and nothing gets damaged- Crossing the road outside the wood in College requires care to make sure no one gets hit by a car
