This is my mood board that I’ve created with ideas for my music video. I’ve chosen to include 9 photos that I think highlight the style I am hoping my video has. I’m going to briefly explain the significance of each picture:
I’m hoping to have a timelapse or a short clip as an establishing shot for my music video of a sunset to add to the visual aesthetic of my video. It will also add to the overall tone and style I’m aiming for.
As another establishing shot I would like to do a focus pull of some lights to add another tone to the video.
This photograph is of my female performer for my video. She will be the protagonist involved and the narrative will be viewed from her perspective. I believe she fits my song well and will be a good performer to use due to her high level of confidence with acting.
My fourth photo is of my male performer who is acting as the ex-boyfriend for my protagonist. He also plays guitar which is a helpful aspect to add to conventions of indie pop music videos as they more often than not feature someone playing an instrument.
This is the kind of outfit I would like my female performer to wear in order to stick to my autumn theme that will run through all my mise-en-scene. Moreover, this will link to indie pop conventions yet again as female indie pop artists tend to dress in this style of clothing.
I’m planning to get a long shot of my protagonist walking across a bridge as I think it’ll develop the house style I want to achieve across my products. Also, I think that scenic locations will suit my chosen song well.
I think London is a perfect location to film shots in due to the high level of attractions. Also, red buses and phone boxes can add to the colour tones I want to have within my music video therefore getting my protagonist to walk near or around these would be a good idea.
Girl in Forest:
This photo is an example of a type of shot I would like to get of not only my protagonist but as a two shot of both my performers. I believe that using the correct focus on the performer and blurring out the background will draw lots of attention to them which is my main aim for the video. Also, I think low budget locations such as fields, park and forests will work well with my chosen song.
Mise-en-scene is crucial to plan before I begin any production for my video therefore I’ve thought in detail on what I want both my performers to wear. I believe that a denim jacket on my male performer will add to the character I want to portray and build the indie aspect of my song further.
