  • 1. THOUGHTS… Before we go off into the horizon creating a montage of shots, I thought I should do some additional research for filming. It's a fact well known that, no matter the amount of research or excellent filming skills a person has, you will never get the amazing shot. If anything they tend to be the shots that are unexpectedly shot, for instance we planned to shoot our artist walking down the subway, trotting along in her fabulous walk ( a walk that fit the mood of the song of course), and to create our perfect shot we envisioned this shot on a tripod or perhaps a dolly, nevertheless it was going to be a smooth transition just like a smooth criminal. However, Mr Lucas (media teacher) said the handheld movement is really effective but you should have left a little space above the artists head, so we thought we would do the same thing but obviously more space above the artists head.
  • 2. ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, MONEY, MONEY As media students we were on quite a tight budget, now that does not mean we did not put any money towards anything, the powder and ingredients used to make the glass are great examples of that. But I thought, why not try to Google the most obvious 'How to shoot a music video under a low budget', I found a music video shot under a low which looked a little amateur (and I was sure ours could/ would be better) but, some ideas were quite useful and associated well to the mood of our song, for instance tearing up paper.
  • 3. PAPER, LIGHTS AND A BOX • One YouTube video suggested creating a little boxed width and size studio, where filming can be done on there. Although that was a good idea, and the effects produced from this idea was good, the small scaled studio was the problem as it would mean that I would have to smash small shards of glass. Although that is something that can be arranged I figured that the impact would be small and not as big as we would want it to be. • Another YouTube video suggested we use a backdrop, this would mean we would have to buy a backdrop. Although this was a good idea, none of us had a backdrop we could use, so it was therefore decided we use a white sheet and then perhaps brighten the background on final cut pro or use plain white paper. This paper would be taped to my back garden wall, with the bottom half of it bending on the floor, creating a right angle, with bright lights on either side of the paper. I am hoping this works.
