Myself, Megan Claydon, and Emmie Bryett (www.g324-sum2011-emmie-bryett.blogspot.com) two A2 pupils from Ilkley Grammar School, aged 17, are creating the a promotion package for the release of an album, to include a music promo video together with a cover for its release as part of an album digipak (CD/DVD package) and a magazine advertisement for the digipak (CD/DVD package.)

Audience feedback on our first rough cut


Untitled from megan claydon on Vimeo.

From our audience feedback, we have realised that we have too:
  • Add in more shots of our female, using editing such as slow motion and her shaking her hair 
  • cut back to the female character after the basketball hits the fence, as the cut is too big 
  • more shots of the journey down to the park of the male and female 
  • Maybe include some still images such as inside a photo booth 
  • A quicker reaction of our male when he gets hit with the basketball
  • More tighter framed shots of the basketball court, and our main singer getting hit
  • Cut down the diegetic start to five seconds 
  • Less shots of them playing basketball at the beginning before the music starts
  • More shots of the ball being thrown into the basketball net and the net itself  
  • Close up of hands and feet 
  • Add in location shots 
  • Cut out the opening shot of the female walking past, as the scenery and mise en scene is quite "ugly" 
  • Use simple effects, such as slow motion 
  • Try layering with the male and the female 
  • Edit the shots so they are all of similar colour and edit the focus 
  • Experiment with black and white, sepia and coloured shots
  • And ensure our lip syncing is in time with he lyrics 
  • We also need to ensure that the diegetic start works together, as we had to crop some of the noise out from some of the clips
  • But we should keep the sound of the basketball 
  • When the second verse ends (on the bridge) just before the last chorus, add in another clip of our female and the main singer
 We uploaded our first rough cut onto YouTube, where people can comment and also view our music video
