Contact With The Band/Artist

Below is the email I sent to the Managing Director of Copenhagen Records to ask permission to use their song in my music video.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Hello,

My name is Maddy Franklin and I’m 17 years old. I study Media Studies at Haydon School Sixth Form in Pinner.

For our A2 Media Coursework we have to make a music video, I have chosen 7 Years by Lukas Graham to use in my video. I chose this song as I really enjoy listening to it. I feel that the story portrayed throughout the lyrics really connects with me. I love the idea of the song telling the story of a man who is reminiscing on his past but yet also looking into the future.

 I am writing this email to ask for you permission to use this song in my music video and would be very grateful if you could reply to this email.

Many thanks,

Maddy

Location Recce

The pictures above are from Ruislip Woods, I have chosen this location to do a selection of my filming as I feel as though it will go with the sad feel to the song. The woods are seen as scary, so him alone in the woods singing this song will portray a feeling of sadness towards the artist which is what I hope to achieve with this video. Also, with it being Autumn I feel as though the colours of the leaves and trees will also help the feel of the video.

 

The other location is the dark room in school where I will use lights to help continue the sad, lonely feel of the song. I want to create an eerie but sad ‘vibe’ throughout the video which I feel that the lights in the dark room will help me to do.

 

Finally, I am undecided whether I want to film in London but I think I do want to get some shots of buildings/busy life to somehow slot into the video. My aim is to get as many ‘random’ shots as I can that I can use them to slot into the video if there are any parts that have gaps.
