Shooting Schedule:

Tuesday 20th September:  Shoot in the dark room in school. This will help me to gain confidence in how the cameras work, how to position the lights and cameras so that I can achieve the shots that I want.

How it went: I feel a lot more confident with how to use the cameras and lights. However when I looked back at the footage a lot of it was out of focus and there were some errors in the fact that some of the tripod legs could be seen in the background.

Tuesday 11th October: Shoot booked again in the dark room, I hope to use some new equipment to ensure that the shots look how I want them to. I will think more about the cameras focus and the way the lights are positioned.

How it went: A lot better than the first shoot in my opinion. I feel a lot more comfortable with how to use the camera as my shots look even better than they did the first time. I am really pleased with how well the shots turned out. During the second shoot I was able to use the dolly tracking bars which I placed the camera rig on to which gave me more choice in the type of shots I create. I was able to create moving shots which made the music video seem more realistic to me. I enjoyed filming with the track as it challenged me as I had to focus, move and pan the camera all at the same time to try to create the best looking footage possible.

Actor Release


This is Mason who I’ve chosen to be the artist in my music video. I chose him as he is one of my close friends and I felt although he would be confident enough to perform well in the video. He also does drama, which I feel helps him to act like the artist performing the song.

I asked Mason to sign a form to ensure that he would/wanted to take part in the filming of the music video.
