Video 1: Music Video Assignment

Music Video Assignment

Students will shoot a music video that is no shorter than 2:30 or longer than five minutes.
Music videos must have a concept, theme, or story.
Students may work with two other people, but everyone must edit their own version of the video.
Any lip syncing must be accurate.

Students must turn in a one-page typed treatment. 
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.

Please email me the answers to the treatment questions below using Canvas:
1. What is your story or concept in great detail? Don't forget big ideas, 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?
6. What props or costumes will you use?

Videos must have one at least one eight-shot sequence.
Storyboards of the video are 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.

Students will have class time to shoot on October 18th and October 20th.
 You will need permission from parents if you want to shoot off campus.
