As there is only Rebecca and myself, it is going to be difficult to get everything finished on time unless we specify what we do.
Jordane & Rebecca – Filming. We will both film from different angles, and film different elements of the song. E.g. Whilst I film the band walking and lip syncing, Rebecca films surrounding area.

In order manage our time, it is important that we keep up to date with our deadlines and on top of all pre production work.
If we miss deadlines, it is important that we alter our plans and make sure we know why we didn’t meet them.
Risk assessment Get permission if necessary. As we are filming in woodland, we may need permission to be on the land. Safety of location. Filming near the sea front could be dangerous. Be aware of equipment theft. When filming, be sure you have the contact details of all involved. Assess possible risks at each location, look for anything that could harm you or others around.

Summary of production Our proposal is too create a representation of the band which reflects their talent and their artistic side. Our music video for the song 'Matches' is going to follow a narrative of the artists 'finding their way back home' (quote from the lyrics) as well as some live performance footage. We are going to use a mix of close ups and medium close ups. We want to use the conventions of close ups of the artists playing their instruments, more than them themselves, and close ups of the front man. We are going to use fireworks/sparklers/Catherine wheels and of course matches, to represent the 'fire' of the song. We are going to try and film in 3 or more different areas, to make the video artistic and engaging. We want to film in woodland/street/city/beach. We are planning to self teach some After Effects techniques to make the music video appear professional and even more artistic.
