Our video didn't challenge any of the forms or conventions of an indie genre video, we had a basic storyline, the lyrics followed, with kept to the right amount of members, also we didn't try to hard to make everything fit in, the video was basic and carefully strung along, and carefully kept to the conventions of an indie music video. it presents youth and maturity, we wanted to present our story of how a group of friends have each embarked on a journey together.
How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?
our media product is very powerful, the main highlight of the video is the storyline, it presents how it feels to be in love when your young, how a relationship can be, which i feel is very effective as it is different and inviting, and is carefully telling a story.our band members were very comfortable around each other, the hand held shots were fantastic they were very realistic, which made our video even more fantastic, it looked great when all the hand held shits were placed together and presented within our video. it made it much more interesting for the audience, bringing them into the story, like being part of it, actually being there.
What have you learned from your audience feedback?
after listening to the audience's feedback i realised a few things needed to be changed, it helped me realise that everything needed to be almost perfect to get good feedback, it also had to be original and different, showing a completely different outlook, the feedback also helped me learn that working as a team and hearing other peoples views really does help, it gives you a whole new range of ideas, and helps you to put different input into your video, exploring new techniques to get the best possible outcome.
How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages
We used final cut pro and i movie to put our movie together, each one offered different ways in which to make our video so we started our video in i movie and then began to try final cut pro but it didn't offer any thing that we wanted to use, so we all decided to stay with i movie, which worked really well, it made our movie look fantastic and had everything we needed, during the course of making our video, we used different techniques within i movie, we attempted to fiddle with the light, but nothing really needed to be changed, i movie helped us make our video simple and it let us create exactly what we wanted, we also referred to videos on YouTube to see how they looked compared to ours and it also gave us many new ideas, we searched the Internet for album covers all these types of technologies, helped us to create our final music video.
