advertisement ideas

talent release form

As I, Rae, will be the only person/talent with in our music video i have signed a talent release form to confirm and accept that i am happy to be a part of it.

CD covers

these are images i have drawn that could perhaps be included in our CD album cover. I played with many ideas that could relate to the theme of being male domineering, parties and also 'out of this world'. Each somehow connote the lyrics in the song of our chosen choice and also suit the genre of house.

We have decide we do not want the artists face to be on the cover as it would be unconventional of the house genre to do so. The Image we are most likely to make our front cover is a black and white photo of the artists bare back. The features such as the spine and shoulder bladeds will be visable to add phantasmagorical affect on the audience. Over the image will be the groups logo and name.  transparent circle revealing the bare back behind it with the name 'Reverb' in a basic font. 

Another image, perhaps to be used on the back of the album is a red cup placed on a tube station bench. This symbolises the theme of parties as these specific cups are commonly used for alcohol. With the use of lip stick around the lip it is obvious the cup belonged to as dressed up girl. Everything around the cup will be slightly blurred making the cup the main focus. It will be placed to one side of the mise en scene allowing the viewers to be able to see the background. The Tube station location creates a sense of the end of a night out and the cup has been left behind when the girl is traveling home. A list of the songs and numbers will be in a black font on top of the red cup so that they stand out.

I have drawn a planet to emphasize the idea of being 'out of this world'. We would like the girls style to almost be goddess and controling which can be represented with the use of a planet. It is also an image that best suits our genre. Dark colours and stars give the album a dreamy effect. 

In one of the images of the red cup for the back of the album there is the effect of smoke around it. This is something our target audience (teenages) tend to be associated with as it is likely they smoke or find it an attraction. It gives the image a reckless/careless atmosphere whilst also making the cup the main focus instead of blurring the back ground mise en scene.

Final Animatic

This is an anamatic of the story board I and my group created to represent the shots that will be included in our music video. We have placed the images to the music to show where we would like each shot to cut and change to the next. We have also taken the time to edit the music to roughly how it will be for the actual video as it was far to long before. When the music is exact, the animatic will be adjusted to the beat properly. Most shots are in black and white while the party scene is in colour to really emphasize the idea of coming alive. With black and white studio shots the costume we have chosen will stand out and be effective for our artists image. The phantasmagorical body shots of the artists belly and legs are revolving shots which only appear every now and again but are obvious that the camera is actually rotating around the body as it dances, however this cannot be very well portrayed with the use of a still shot anamatic. There are various close ups, mid shots, high angle and low angle, a range of lighting, locations, costumes and also effects that will make our video interesting for the viewers.

Shooting Schedule

This is our shooting schedule. here we have planned the days which we will be filming on along with which props, costume and equipment we will be using.

costume and props

These sunglasses show both that the artists image is stylish and also has a hint of retro. This is a prop for our music video as it is symbolic of our artists image to the audience. We can see traces of old fashioned styles which can he associated with the genre of house music. They also allow the audience to feel as though the artist is dressed up which can fit with the theme of partying seen briefly in our music video shots.

Silver disco pants will stand out well above the black studio shots i and my group have planned to include in our music video. They are skin tight which helps emphasize the idea of alluring men and being domineering. This type of clothing can seem flirtatious which we feel relates with the lyrics of our chosen house music song. Again they fit in with our scenes as these 'disco' pants can be associated with partying. They fit in with our genre of music and best suit our artist image.(I have not yet bought this product so am unable to take my own picture).

This is again another alluring and retro style item of clothing to fit in with our artists image and to create a party  feeling for the audience. This will look best in the white studio shots. We chose  this piece of clothing as it is simple and could effective. Its plain features create a  natural but glamorous touch to  our artist along with the  plain silver tight disco pants.

We have chosen a red cup to be a prop in our music video as it holds connotations of drinking and parties. These cups are commonly seen at specific partying environments and are something young people (our target audience) can understand. This may also be one of the images in our cd cover to symbolise a night out. The cup will be placed on a bench at a tube station to highlight that the young teenage artist has been out and is now traveling away from the party.
