These are the emails that we have written to ask for permission from Sutton and Carshalton Council to use the locations for our filming. This is so that the council know that we are meant to be filming on those specific dates.

This is our test shot of the growing tattoo on Shannen. We tested the shot because we needed to know how fast the editing would need to be to make the shot smooth, easy to watch and realistic. The stop-motion idea may have been difficult to do due to the time and care needed when drawing on the tattoo. Another difficulty is that the camera and Shannen's arm would need to stay in the same positions for a long period of time.
We are also planning to make the tattoo extend from the arm onto the background of the shot, by continuing the tattoo onto a piece of card that we are using for the background.

This is the shooting schedule that we have planned so that we know what days we will be shooting, where we will be shooting, who is involved and what props and costumes we will need. This will allow us to organise our time efficiently during the production process of our music video.
These are the lists that we have created which show what our props and costumes are. Our costumes are going to be the types of costume worn by pop rock artists which shows their rebellious and unique styles.
This costume would be worn by my character to show her pop princess side. The pop princess style is shown through the use of pink with black.
This costume would be worn by my character to show her more rebellious, rock style. This is seen through most of the costume being black with the purple and black tights.
The leather jacket would be used to show the two girls' rebellious sides, as the leather jackets are usually associated with rebels and punks.

This is one of our photos of London where we will film parts of our narrative for our music video. We would film the parts of the narrative where the girls were arguing and breaking apart from each other.

These were our original concept ideas. We were planning on filming in London close to the Tate Modern and around other parts of London. We are now planning on filming in Sutton on the bridge close to the park and at Carshalton ponds. The concept of the costumes and props have not changed from the original ideas to the final ideas.
These are our final concept ideas. We are planning on using the green screen to show the difference between the two different genre extremes of pop and rock. The narration consists of two friends moving apart from each other until they are no longer friends. We are showing the contrast between the time when they were best friends and the time when they are completely different from each other.
We plan to film our music video in a variety of locations, including Central London for the narrative and a drama room for our performance shots. This is because Central London is a busy place where friends go on day trips together and there is a lot of activity there. The drama rooms have low-key lighting due to the black walls, floor and ceiling but they are equipped with spot lights.
The two singers in the group will wear contrasting costumes in order to highlight the theme of two friends moving apart from each other and also to emphasise the pop rock genre.
