This is a mood board that shows the mood and type of look I would like to create in my music video. I have included the different colour themes and style of shots I would like to include. Some of these pictures include settings I would like to use such as the scrap yard and the street alleyway. I really like the idea of dust/clouding and dance put together. I also like the idea of projections onto a person.
This is one of the first shots we see and is so important because it shows the summer setting and gives the viewer a warm and exited feeling. This establishing shot grabs the viewers attention and hints that this music video is going to easy watching and fun.
This is an over the shoulder shot with interesting usage of light and shadows. This keeps the viewer interested and introduces the fact that this video will not have a set ‘main character’ as no one specifically has had an extensive amount of time on screen.
This is another establishing shot showing many people roller-skating off to a party on the beach. This is not a typical scene the viewer is like;y to come across in day to day life which makes the film appear hyperreal or in a fantasy world.
Shot 4 brings excitement and tension, we see slow motion movement of teenagers aggressively hitting their skate boards onto the ground (clearly to the rhythm). It tells the viewer clearly that that there is an exiting event going on and encourages the viewer to continue watching to find out what this event might be.
I chose shot 5 to be a key shot because of the amazing use of lighting and environment. The natural lighting effect mimics that of the artificial lights in a club/disco giving the impression that the next shot may a ‘partying’ shot. The cinematography matches nicely with the upbeat/summery tone of the song.
This shot was taken using a drone and reveals the ‘party’ that is commencing. It shows us all characters in the music video which leads to a dance/gymnastics performance which is designed to impress the viewer.
Here we can see a boy on a skateboard appearing to be ‘flying into the sky’. This indicates that the atmosphere the characters are experiencing is so uplifting, they are literally flying.
Getting to the end of the music video, we can see a very exited and energetic group of people shot from a low angle, this reenforces how ‘high’ they are feeling. This shot gives a more intense and cinematic tone to the film. I am inspired by the mies-en-scene here as the foreground is so busy and vibrant which contrasts with the calm blue sky in the background.
This is the last shot in the whole film and gives the viewer a feeling of triumph. If gives the film a very definitive look and does not leave the audience in any sort of shock. Having analysed this, I would prefer to finish my film in a cliffhanger ir at least leave the viewer asking questions.
