final few bits…

Admittedly my syncing is not up to scratch. However for what it is it is fine…I wonder if anyone else has gone to so much effort for this competition…

By the way you guessed what song it is yet 🙂

A scene from the video!

Story board…

I spent today mulling over the what should be in my video. Obviously it has to go with what is being said in the song so firstly I printed the lyrics and ‘grouped’ them. With so many ideas running through my head the only option is to put them on paper hence a STORYBOARD. It is completely up to you how you create this:

  1. Collage: cut out photos/props you like from magazines and stick them on your board.
  2. Draw a black and white ‘stick man’ image of what you want.

My video is to be shot in our local park. It is a park as it has various features, ducks, pathways, bridge, rose garden. I went there and took photos of the bits I liked and used them later in my storyboard. Think of what props you will need. Any extra people playing other roles? Costumes/outfits. You may well need to take a few outfits and make-up/shoes with you. I plan to put everything in a pull around suitcase so all is at hand and easy to cart around.

Later on I took my two lines and brainstormed how to portray this using what resources I have. Please refer to the story board image as everything you would need to think of/write up is on there. I used Photoshop to put my ideas down as I find it easy but you can print, cut, paste and draw. Whatever your feeling at the time.

Not everything is do-able. It is up to you to make the scenes interesting. Your outfits, your expressions and how people are interacting within that scene.
