Planning to film

  1. 1. F I L M I N G O U R M U S I C V I D E OPLANNING
  2. 2. NOVEMBER 27TH 2012Our aim:• To film the „montage‟ shots involving various peopletearing up paper shapes with a solem expression.This means:• To find willing participants.• To make the shapes using newspaper.• To find various backdrops in the school to use forfilming.
  3. 3. NOVEMBER 27TH 2012Reflection:• We made many shapes out of newspaper such as a heart, acloud, a sunshine, a tear drop ect.• Students were recruited from the study room and LRC who toreup the shapes.• To make this more interesting we sometimes included more thanone person in a shot.• Key lighting was used whilst we were filming, and weexperimented with this by using it as our only light source in a darkhallway.Issues:• Getting the camera to focus each time.• Finding willing participants.• Trying to encourage people not to laugh whilst they were beingfilmed (these moments have inspired us to make an additional“bloopers” video which we will add to as our filming progresses).
  4. 4. DECEMBER 4TH 2012Our aim:• To film the scenes of the music video which featurethe singer by herself and with the guitarist.Props needed: Costume(s):Micophone (for singer) Black trousers/skirt (both)Guitar White top/shirt (both)Chair (for guitarist) Dark shoes (both)Drawing of heart (held bysinger)The costumes/hairstyles/make-up need to be easy to recreateas if we do not complete allintended filming at the time thenwe may need to do so at a laterdate and continuity is vital.Our intentions:• To film allsinger/guitaristshots and shotsof the singer withthe drawing.• To use lightingeffectively.• To use a varietyof camera shottypes andangles.
  5. 5. DECEMBER 4TH 2012Reflection:•We tore up the paper scraps needed to form “TORN” from newspaper tofeature in our music video.• A decent start was made to our filming for the “performance” shots.• We filmed the start of the music video where a close up of the singerzooms out to a mid shot.• A few of our two-shots of the singer and guitarist were also filmed afterwe constructed a stage from gray folding blocks.• Both the singer and guitarist were in costume and wore minimal make-up.• We experimented with various lighting (cool, warm, bright ect.) andcamera movement (panning).Issues:• Filming a sufficient amount within the allotted time without having to rush.• Achieving smooth camera movement.• We did not finished all the filming that we intended and still have closeups, mid shots and two-shots to film we well as the “heart” shots and thecreation of “TORN” from newspaper.
  6. 6. DECEMBER 11TH 2012Our aim:• To complete the scenes of the music video whichfeature the singer by herself and with the guitarist.Props needed: Costume(s):Micophone (for singer) Black trousers/skirt (both)Guitar White top/shirt (both)Chair (for guitarist) Dark shoes (both)Drawing of heart (held bysinger)The costumes/hairstyles/make-up need to be easy to recreateas if we do not complete allintended filming at the time thenwe may need to do so at a laterdate and continuity is vital.Our intentions:• To film allsinger/guitaristshots and shotsof the singer withthe drawing.• To use lightingeffectively.• To use a varietyof camera shottypes andangles.
  7. 7. DECEMBER 11TH 2012Reflection:•We managed to produce a drawing of a heart to use in our shots of thesinger.• All the two-shots were completed.• All the close ups and mid shots of the singer were completed.• Three of the “heart” shots were filmed.• Various lighting and camera angles were used, including a low angleshot.• The singer and guitarist were both in costume and the singer had slightlymore make-up on which showed up better on the camera, avoiding avery pale face.Issues:• Although we filmed all of the two-shots (meaning the guitar no longer hasto come into school and cause inconvenience), not all of our shots havebeen finished.• We still need to shoot the “heart” shots and well as the spelling of “TORN”.• We are conscious that we still have yet to film the “couple” scenes andtherefore need to find a willing male to appear in our music video whowe have no yet found.
  8. 8. DECEMBER 13TH 2012Our aim:• To complete all the shots that involve the drawingof the heart and the “confetti TORN”.Props needed: Costume(s):Micophone (for singer) Black trousers/skirt (both)Guitar White top/shirt (both)Chair (for guitarist) Dark shoes (both)Drawing of heart (held bysinger)The costumes/hairstyles/make-up need to be easy to recreateas if we do not complete allintended filming at the time thenwe may need to do so at a laterdate and continuity is vital.Our intentions:• To film all shotsof the singer withthe drawing.• To film thesection wherethe word“TORN” isformed fromnewspaper.• s
