Location in Scotland
Film as many shot as I can but this will not be the main place I will put on music video because its impossible a I couldn’t go back to film again. The main place will e oil Exeter,having my actor involve.
- St Gile’s cathedral
- Palace of Holyroodhouse
- Princes street gardens-wanna film flowers/castle, hill
- Edinburgh castle
- National Museum of scotland
- Holyrood Palance and the Scottish Parliament
I got some idea of filming from lower angle from this videos. The picture below is what I want to film on my music video. Although, it’s just a small idea but it’s something that it’s possibly to do.
This scene when you only focus on feet. Morning routine scene, get off from bed, tie shoe ready to go out and the last picture put on the jumper in the dark shadow. I want to film this in dark.
I really like he transition and sound effect of this video. I want a shot and camera angle like this.
Location to film in Exeter
- My house
- Belmont park
- Bury park
These four shots are the in the same scene as the picture above but splitting in different movement. The movement of my actor climbing up and down, scared of swan, posing and smile. It was a nice shot as well but as I’ve said I’m not really sure if i wanna have those shot on my music video.
Well, this three shots are just a random shot that I make my actor pose as i want my FMP cover page on my blog.
Personally I feel that my first test-edit is really rough because I just put some of my footage that I’ve got into it which I didn’t actually arrange it. I used many transform to make a split screen,reverse effect and some normal videos. Actually I made a mistake , I meant to cut the clip at 2.45 but I didn’t check it carefully so there is still a black and a picture after where I meant to cut. Actually I uploaded the test edit 1 on here but I accidentally from Youtube so I haven’t got with me now.
Second edit: so this is the test edit that has been cut.In my opinion, the smooth footage kind of went well with the music. When I’m doing a real thing I will try to do the cut on my thing so it will be in time with my edit. I didn’t put the green screen shot on my test edit but I will be definitely out the that on my real production.
This is the problem that i have found after I took a test shot today. The problem with the light coming on green-screen wall. As you can see light making green wall not constant.
I used Keyer effect to do this. Honestly I think it work quite well but it is not perfect because the light is coming in a bit as I didn’t close the curtain which makes this footage looks a bit strange. I would have to increase the scale of the shot to 124% thus making the lighter green areas out of shot. I meant to use the chroma key but I couldn’t find it so ending up using keying instead which doesn’t make that different. Include adding things to shots, removing things from shots, color correction is the thing that i should do after i finish shooting as well. What i have to be aware of doing this is trying to avoid the shadow and imbalance lighting. As I’m inexperience in this so I would have to be research more and explore more test shot on green-screen so that i would know how can I shoot them and how to protect my shot from any situation.
Edit : Split screen, flip ,position and scale.
Morning Routine videos
I have looked at two morning routine videos which I want to film something like that and using these kind of camera angle and cinematography to film on my music video. I will probably split this two scene even its the same thing and same place and probably flip it so that it would give a feeling like there is two character in one.
This is morning routine test shot that I’ve got. I filmed this at my house. I’m using the clips above to be my inspiration and try to film as similar as them. Most of them are the possible one and might use all of them on my music video.
I will need more profile shot ( side) as I think it’s work really well on the flipping and reverse effects. I found making a flipping effect is going to looks good when I film it in landscape because it’s reflecting the image so it will looks like I’m having a two character in one.
Shot that I need to film:
- When she is going to sleep
- Opening the door to house
- Closing curtain or close the light
- Walking home side shot
- Her on green screen side shot just half body
- Her feet walking up the stairs
- Walking around town(Both side shot and normal shot)
- Laying on tree holding a cup of tea (side shot)
