Fmp2: Test shot


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
  • Royalmile
  • Palace of Holyroodhouse
  • Carltonhill
  • 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

  • Quay
  • My house

This is the side shot of my actress,I want to focus only the mid-shot of her listening to music means that she is happy.

A mid shot of my actress smiling while siting on a swing. I really want to have this shot on my music video because i thought it’s also another good way to show that she is happy on swing.

This is wide shot while she is walking to sit under the three. I want to pans the camera slowly and smoothly to focus more on the characters and their surrounding background.
This is extreme close-up to focus on my actor face expression showing that at this moment she is a bit sad.

This shot is pretty much the same like the picture above because it is in the same scene but now there’s more movement and getting more intense and intimate emotion.
Extreme close up on her face but mainly focus on her holding the flower. I didn’t expect to have this shot but it was one of the entertain and to add some extra acting from my actor. I thought it was a good idea to have this shot to not make this scene boring and more colorful to it.

As i remeber this scene i film she walking from the far distance to a place where I film so in this shot i have to film in a wide shot then have a little pans when she walk towards me. Unfortunately i found when she walked towards me the camera don’t really pick her up clearly so it a little bit dark and not focusing.

The wide shot on my actor walking back where she walk from. I decide to use this shot to be a reverse scene because i thought it would be cool if i have a shot that she is acting the same but in reverse. I would say this shot This shot is focusing  from the top of her head to her feet whilst capturing the environment
Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 13.19.36.png
I would say this is a master shot because its identify what she is doing and where it’s taking place. Focusing more on location and her swinging.
Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 13.20.44.png
I film this from a higher angle but it didn’t look like i film from high angle so i would say this shot was in between the low angle shot and high angle shot. I want to focus on her feet tapping to the floor while is swinging from a higher point and looks down on the character subject.
Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 13.20.59.png
The mid shot focusing on a certain part of tree and she is behind. Showing that is in a mood laying on a big tree. I really like this shot because this shot looks like having 2 layers in the scene.
This is kind of large shot having my actor sitting on the tree by the quay. She is kind of scare of swan that surrounded by her. I’m not sure if this scene will suits to my music video but i thought it was a nice shot.

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.

This is the over the shoulder shot as i film behind ,my actor. I filmed this shot in a higher angle as well. This is the scene when she is seeing her shadow reflecting in the water and trying to touch it. To show that she really want the old her back.

These two shot focusing on my actor hand feeling the grass. I pans the camera slowly follow the surrounding elements that may be relevant to the scene’s narrative. This shot is on the shot that i planned to have 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 one of my scene on my test edit having my actor on green-screen. On this picture she is in the dark but the background is white. I might have to consider getting  lighting equipment to help it looks brighter so that she get fit in the scene.

I think this photo is good, because the lighting is similar in both the background shot and the shot with the green screen, making this shot look as though it hasn’t been edited and looks realistic.
This is a test shot that I’ve took today! It wasn’t turned out bad but i might have re-shoot again because I didn’t close the curtain and the lighting coming in which making the green wall not constant.

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.

This is the transfer that I used in my every footage

This is how my footage looks like when I put it in the right position and transform.


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 slideshow requires JavaScript.

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)
