Rain scene

These were three of our test shots at filming the rain scene. We decided to do shots like these to add to the feelings of loss and sadness which is usually associated with rain.

One of the problems that we had was directing the water so that it was pouring onto us rather than next to us, and also making it strong enough to see on the camera. We also had trouble with finding the right location to film the shots. We first tried to film it against the wall but then decided against it as there was a drain pipe and a door which we did not want seen in our video.

However, we managed to overcome the problems by practising directing the rain and by filming in front of the fence which we decided would be a better setting for our music video and genre.

First Draft

This is the first draft of our music video. We decided that our music video was going to be mostly performance based with a little bit of narrative showing the separation of the two friends. We encountered the difficulty of finding shots that would be useful as some of the hand held shots were slightly shaky, however, we fixed this by using more fast paced editing to use different shots with parts that were not as shaky.
