This year i have looked at the A2 brief in preparation for next year. I have come to the conclusion that i will most likely do a music video, as I have produced and directed a short film before, and i would like to learn and explore more in the music video era.
I have also looked at creating a documentary, but making something unique is extremely hard. I have though of creating a documentary regarding immigration, but finding someone willing to speak is also hard.
In my opinion, because I already have experience in camerawork, as i have filmed a short film for my AS film studied, it will make it more easier and straight forward when using camera, lighting and constructing the music video editing. The short film took a lot of planning, but the filming process was fun and exiting. It took time to find the right actress, which i done through a casting process. This should not be much different to a music video. I will be holding a short casting for different actors and actresses soon, so I can see their ability in order for my music video to come together the best it can.
For the music video, there are many locations to school that can be done, which i will be visiting over the summer holiday to get a idea of whether i like the locations or not. I have thought of filming in a abandoned house or building, which graphite representing the torn relationship, I would also like to use adobe after effects as I would like to create a broken car window effect, which would look interesting. I have some potential songs which i would like to use, but I’m not exactly sure which one i will chose. Regarding costumes, I have though of a plain black dress for the actor, or black T shirt and jeans for the actor. Prop wise, i would definitely like to include a microphone, and a guitar. I will not use any drums as the songs i have in mind are performed be individual artists.
