RS - Feedback on our Second Sample Footage

Once we had finished editing our second sample footage for our music video we gave the exported file to our Media Teacher so he could upload it to Youtube. Once it had been uploaded we gathered all the students within the class together around the middle and screened our second sample footage to them. Once the screening had finished we had time to ask them any questions or for them to ask us any questions and this is what we recieved.
  • Try not to show the face of the protagonist straight away (to keep narrative enigma)
  • Create a CD/DVD print to put onto a blank CD with the name of our track + band on it to show to the audience.
  • Try to time to poster "montage" shots with the music
  • Instead of having copyrighted material being played on the TV have our performance footage played on it instead.
  • Have CU's on the phone so it's easier to read and either speed up the footage or shorten the sequence down a couple of menus to save time
  • Having the "Sony" branding in the frame could be seen as a viral advert
  • Have the protagnoist using the QR code app on his phone whilst looking at our Digipak we will be making to help promote it.
  • Have our magazine advert on one of the pages when the protagonist is reading it
  • Make the collage of magazines more subtle not just in a big group on the floor
  • Use multi-layering within the video so we can fit more footage into the sequence
  • Have photos of the protagonist alone in various locations so it isolates him from everyone even more
  • Redo some of the shots with the low-lighting and test on the day to see if lighting is suitable if not then use external light source
  • First see the persons face when he puts the magazine down
  • Try out with having shots without showing his face at all perhaphs for the entire music video and then get feedback from it all to see if it works!
  • Have the protag looking through his wardrobe however the clothes are very unusual and makes him seem more of an outsider to the rest
  • Look at Napoleon Dynamite for influence

We also recieved feedback from a past A2 student, Chris Lawrence!

 Here is our second sample footage!
