Story board

In the beginning of the storyboard we have the opening narrative without music setting the beginning of the narrative. The opening shots introduce the characters and their potential outcome at the end of the Music Video. we wanted to reverse this shot because it was a twist to the video rather than the ending being at the end to lift the audience at the edge of their seats so they would want to continue watching it and find out what happened.
  1. The split screening of three characters, medium shots and the use of spot lighting to place emphasis upon the characters. The shot is supposed to be reminiscent of a blink.it also makes the video seem as if it is a short movie leading up to events that end in the death of the girls.
  2. A dip to black transition to emphasize a blink, Over the shoulder shot and zooming in upon the words HIV the audience then feel emotive as they have realised that some one will die from an incurable disease. Using normal room lighting. The zooming in is supposed to induce shock and suspense questioning what will happen next. This shot is supposed to show the audience as a fly upon the wall peering in therefore the shot should last longer.
  3. A close shot upon character's face to highlight grief and misery, zooming in upon a tear. it slowly lowers and scans her whole face to show each and every feature.This is Used to spark emotion among the audience. To have a lasting effect upon the audience. Use of trampy and ragged clothing to showcase her troubles.

Natural lighting used to promote realism and a swift transitions to show the severity and sudden nature of the narrative.

  1. Post is very similar to Amina's, and since she got hers up first by a few weeks I'll direct tgis one to you :)

    Have a read through it, see if you can use more specific technical terminology and make sure that you have made sufficient changes to this to show that the moderator can see evidence of independent skills. The spec is fine on collaboration, but there needs to be as much evidence as possible to differentiate between candidates so have a look at the descriptions you've used and see if each can be reworded slightly / have a bit of extra detail added explaining why for each of the shots or some specific reference to editing techniques or shot duration in places. Nothing major, just make sure you can show this is what YOU have done. Make sense?
