I am going to be doing a time-lapse of the outside of the cathedral as this is quite
picturesque and will fit in well with music, especially to the beat of the music.
Originally I wanted to film a part of my music video here as the gates are quite gothic looking and tall.
Moreover the lyrics say ‘the gates are closed now.’ However I am no longer going to use this location as the
ground gets quite muddy. So instead I am going to use Bishops gate. As it still looks gothic but is less muddy.
I may film in the evening for this scene as there shall be less people around so will be easier to film. Moreover,
I shall shine a light on the boy and then the girl will be in the background in the dark which will have
connotations that she is hiding secrets and is a dark sneaky character.
On the day of filming I ended up filming at the gate outside the cathedral and not Bishops
gate as the ground was no longer muddy.
I am going to be filming the girl on the swing messing about as this will
symbolise that she is a player and messing the boy around. This location
is quite quiet with not many people around, therefore this is an
appropriate location to film.
I am going to use this spot for the kiss and argument scene as it is picturesque
I will be filming in the actors living room in which I have had permission to film there. I
will film here an argument scene and flashbacks to happier times.
At my own home I will be filming the water sequences such as rain going down
windows, rain going down an umbrella and a tap dripping. These all will
symbolise weeping as the boy in the music video is remembering all the happy
times that he and the girl had when they were together, whilst he is looking
through a photo album.
I will be filming a variety of different shots here including; the girl running through
trees and the couple parting.
I will be filming at Earlham cemetery as it is quite quiet and will add a gothic
feel to my music video
At the end of my music video I want to film a sunset that shall be a time-lapse as it will
signify the end. I shall be filming the sunset here as it has a nice view of the city with the
cathedral, which shall have connections to the start of my music video where I have a time-
lapse of the cathedral in the daytime.
I didn’t end up using the film footage I took of the sun set in this location as when the
footage was sped up it became apparent that the sunset was too long and ended up
looking choppy and robotic and didn’t flow.
