Individual film

The area I have decided to choose is: Music Video
 

I have chosen to do music videos because I really want to show the theme of a song through a narrative. I want to see how I can express and interpret the themes of the song into a film format. 

 
Themes I want to explore:

Being an outcast

Feeling like you could do more

Feeling like you aren't good enough

Trying to do better

Feeling like you don't belong

I looked at videos such as 

Kodaline - All I want (Part 1 and 2)

Location mood board

 

The locations I'm looking at are forests, parks, and a graveyard. I really like the idea of the locations being fairly earth colours such as green and blues. This is so the costume the character will be wearing will stand out and make it even more colourful. 

Costume Ideas

I really love the idea of having a superhero costume to show the inner child of the character.

Developing Ideas

 

Why is the character in the costume?

Could a younger sibling have recently died? Little sister? He could have told her previously that I'll always be your superhero, will always look after you and save you from harm. 

 

The opening shot of him in a suit at her graveyard, holding a card or a note, maybe a drawing she did of him

Could he be dressed as a superhero? Her as a princess maybe

Pre-Production

 

Prop and Costume

 For the superhero costume, I found a red and yellow costume online that I absolutely loved. I knew I wanted the mask to be handmade and luckily my mum crochets so I kindly asked her to made me a red mask with a yellow D on the front. Colours to match the costume. This would be the costume that my main character would be wearing while doing his small acts of kindness.

Permission to use the song

 

The song that I want to use is a song called Remember by a band called Sutherland. They are a South African indie band. I found their song on Soundcloud and sent messages to them on Soundcloud and Facebook asking for their permission to use the song. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They sent back a message on Facebook giving me permission to use the song. They also wanted to see the final outcome. Yay!!
