Group Discussion (To do list)

After editing the majority of our music video, we have had a discussion about the shots we are missing and we have decided that we need to film the following shots again.

  • In pub
  • Ice cream in face-"what we have we share" aged film grain
  • "Caller ID"- shot of phone
  • Facebook chat/text - "i've gotta tell you something"
  • "dont forget your home" alternative 
  • another "knowing you are close"
  • alternative choruses

After showing our video in a showcase to our whole class, we asked our audience to fill in feedback forms.  Here our some of the responses:

After looking at our feedback the consensus was that we need to shoot some more footage to fill the gaps and to make sure that we don't use footage more than once. We also decided that we need to use more of the old style film as people really liked the quaint style and the home made aesthetic. 


Today I stayed after school to do some editing of our footage. I worked on getting the shots at the right time for the ending and I edited all of the footage to create the old film grain effect where needed. I'm going to upload the specific footage to youtube so that my group can look at it and see what it looks like.

Today whilst editing i realised that not only are we still missing some shots still but there are certain pieces we need to re-film such as;

  • Facebook chat shot
  • Caller ID shot
And there is some discussion as to whether we should re-film certain scenes that don't quite match up to our expectations. Luckily none of these shots involve returning to the cafe, i don't think we can quite face returning there a fourth time.

Wednesday 9th March

Today we went to the cafe and shot some more footage. We went to film the POV shots of the couple and the shot of the couple, but whilst there I had the idea to film the leaning in for a kiss, where we see the kiss from both points of view and then finally a mid shot. We also filmed the footage of our artist playing the guitar which is a signifier for her musical ability.

Overall it was quite successful day shooting, we were well as a group and utilised the time we had to full effect. As soon as we have the footage we have been uploading it to the editing software. Ashlie has been the technical force behind editing, as she has a good grasp of the technology, and Jennie and I have been  doing more in charge of the creative process, but we have all sat together and made decisions on timings, and where footage should be used. Sasha, Jennie and myself probably need to to some more editing, in terms of cutting clips etc and placing effects.

We plan to have completed all filming within the next week, so that we can finish editing our footage.
