Casting

After researching new and old boy bands, we have decided to choose a cast that would suit the role of a modern take on boy band members, but also those that are willing to participate, dance and lip sync.
  
They all have their own individual personality traits, and have the "boy band" member looks, we will also achieve this with different types of clothing.


They all go to our school, and are aged 17-18. 

To find out who would be our chosen boy band members, we asked them a set of questions, as followed:
  • What is your name and where do you come from?
  • Why do you want to be in a boy band?
  • Are you committed to a role in a boy band?
  • What personality traits do you have that are useful for a boy band?
  • What is your fashion style?
  • Who would you compare yourself to that is already/was a member of a boy band?
  • Did you idolise any boy bands when you were younger?
  • How will you handle the female attention?
  • Who is your favorite boy band?

As we are making the music video more modern, to appeal to a wider audience, the members will not resemble members of The Backstreet Boys, but more modern bands such as JLS and The Wanted.







Due to One Direction getting extreme popularity from the nation on The X Factor, they may also have that "look" to them, this is to appeal to young teenage girls, whom can see them as "heart throbs." 




These are our four chosen boy band members:

 Like Gary Barlow from Take that, Andy will be the "eldest" of the group, he seems to be the one who takes charge. He will appear towards the front of the shots quite regularly, as if he is the "leader of the group." He will enjoy the power of being in a boy band, and the attention he will get from it. He will do a lot for the success of the band.







Aaron will also have this image of being "a leader" 
However he is much more laid-back, and is also quite "quirky" 
He likes to have fun and will make a great boy band member! 
He would probably get the reputation for being "the nice guy." 
He would be like "Robbie Williams" from Take That. 
He will also take centre stage in many shots. 
He is the joker of the group.
Aaron has been in a long term relationship for 3 years, the fame will not go to his head, he is down to earth, like Robbie, who has done a lot to help The X Factor in recent years. 










Although not the youngest of the group, Robbie will
most likely be the "heart throb" with his cheeky
personality and his good looks, he also has a great 
fashion sense. He will be the "baby" of the group.
He will be like "Harry Styles" from One Direction.
He will be involved with a lot of main shots of him by himself lip syncing but also backing dancing.
He is very sporty, however, he will be seen as quite
a feminine male and the one who loves himself!









Jimmy is the youngest of the group, again he will be seen as      
a cheeky boy band member, who will love the female
attention, however very polite and sweet, he will be backing 
dancing in shots, he will be like "Justin Timberlake" who was in Nsync. 
He is a huge rugby fan. The typical macho male.





We chose these four, as they showed the most enthusiasm and were keen to be apart of the band, therefore making them more reliable.

They are all also four best friends, which will make them working together much easier, and will be able to show the true "bond" that boy band members have with one another.

They were also not shy to dance or lip sync, and were great fans of boy bands.
