In class yesterday we plotted out our music video. My group and I are doing All Star. Our plan is to have this boy walking around singing to everyone. In his mind everyone is loving it and playing along but in reality everyone is freaked out by him. We will show the difference between reality and his mind by having the color saturated when it's just his imagination. We did a storyboard of each verse on Power Point so that everything was organized. We figured out what shots we needed, where we want to shoot and we got our lead guy. We plan on starting to shoot sometime this week. I have high hopes for this project and expect it to come out really nicely.

The past few classes have been focused on our trailer projects and then the beginning of our music video project. After viewing the trailer projects in class I fixed mine up a little bit by adding a white flash when the lightening strikes. In the class one student commented that the video did nto make sense that the music was so happy over scary scenes from the movie. I did that because I thought it added an ironic twist. I think that it made the movie seem a litte bit creepier. Also although the scenes are scary it still is a child's movie and I thought the happy music would lighten the mood for a child. 
For the music video project we decided to do All Star by Smash Mouth. It's a fun song that everyone is familiar with and I think that it will be a lot of fun to put together.
