Planning - Props Inside We have decided to ensure that our props are conventional of the setting we are creating. As our video is going consist of a party there needs to be believable props such as empty alcohol bottles, empty food packets etc. We have decided to litter the surfaces within the house, such as mantelpieces, with empty bottles. To make our video look more professional and realistic, we are also thinking about removing the labels on the bottles as this is what is done in professional music videos. We are also thinking of blacking out the windows as this will allow us to have more control over the lighting and it will also cause the glow paint to be more effective.
Planning - Props Outside For the shots that are being filmed outside, we are going to film the band playing ‘live’ with the guests as the audience. We will be creating a backdrop that reads ‘Crisis Journey’ in glow paint and will be using artificial lighting to have control over the vibrancy of the paint that is on the backdrop and the audience. The artificial lighting will also ensure that the band is always adequately lit so that they are perfectly visible throughout the ‘live’ shots. We will also be shooting the outside scenes under a shelter to be ready and able to film in any weather conditions. It will also ensure there is adequate space for the lighting.
