Evaluation Q4 - How do you think your prelim experiences will impact on your approach to next term's music video coursework?

Next term we must use our skills from this pelim task to make our own original music video for an existing song. I am really looking forward to this project as I am interested into seeing the various stages that are involved in creating an original video, I also look forward to seeing how the skills from this prelim project carry over and help us make a better video.

I have learned many transferable skills that I will take to next year such as:

  • How to create a persona and use costume, props, lighting, composition and framing to convey these further. This will help me with A2 as I will be creating a musician from scratch so it will be very useful to think about how to use all these elements to create a more realistic and appealing character. The costume & props meetings showed me how to successfully plan the look of the video which is a major part of the video.
  • How to work with actors and encourage them to give their best performance
  • The basics of music video makeup such as anti-shine
  • The basics of camera work and supporting the camera such as cable bashing
  • I have also learned the importance of choreography as it is important for videos to have actions that match the video. 
    • When Sian says "ever bring them down", she matches it with a hand-movement. This is due to Jasmine's choreography.


  • How to edit a music video and make sure the lip-syncing matches up with audio track
  • I have learned the style that music videos tend to be edited in, the pace of the cutting usually match the tone of the song.
  • The music videos also tell a story and follow a narrative flow rather than just being a series of shots that match the music. It is more like a short film that tells a story.
  • Visual effects such as flashes are used to make the video look more interesting and as a variation to a normal cut. Such as:
