Music Video Treatment

Music Video Treatment

Students will shoot a music video that is no longer than five minutes.
Music videos must have a concept, theme, or story (not 100% lip-syncing).
You can have class time on April 18 to shoot.
Video should have at least one six-shot sequence.
Raw Footage is due right after spring break.

Students must turn in a one-page typed treatment to the classes period 2 folder. Please use the naming convention.

Most videos have an interesting concept such as a fake TV show, a backwards video, a dance video, a live performance video, or simply an interesting story. Your treatment should explain in detail your concept and how you plan to make this concept come to life. Your treatment should answer the following questions:

1. What is your story or concept in great detail? Don't forget costumes, editing and shooting style etc. Your answer should be 4-5 sentences.
2. Who are you working with on this project (inside or outside of class)?
3. When will you shoot?
4. Do you need class time to shoot?
5. What song are you using? How long is the song?

Storyboards of the sequence will be required.

Videos shots must use proper technique discussed in class: good headroom, proper white-balance, leading the subject, focus, and steadiness. Grading of these shots will be more difficult than the last project.
