Deadlines/Brief

Music videos are so 80s/90s, right? They belong with the era when MTV screened wall-to-wall vids instead of 'reality' TV? Try telling that to the millions who bought Gangnam Style; were they really simply loving the music? 1.6bn (and still climbing) have viewed the video on YT, not to mention the many re-makes (school eg, eg2), viral ads + celeb link-ups (even political protest in Seoul) - and it doesn't matter how legit it is, this nightmare for daydream Beliebers is making a lot of money, even from the parodies + dislikes. All this for a simple dance track that wouldn't have sounded out of place in 1990 ... but had a fun vid. This meme itself was soon displaced by the Harlem Shake. Music vids even cause diseases it seems!
This blog explores every aspect of this most postmodern of media formats, including other print-based promo tools used by the industry, its fast-changing nature, + how fans/audiences create/interact.

TASK 5: Nine-Shot Wonder

We're going to make a start on deconstructing the video we'll be working on reconstructing during the Music Video Day and subsequent lessons for editing. As we do this, try to make brief notes on any pointers or lessons you're picking up on what challenges face you for your own production, and any do's and don'ts that occur that you.

We'll start by deconstructing the 1st 9 shots of the video, then we'll move on to assign you manageable timed chunks of the video to denote in detail, finally bringing it all together so we all have a complete, shot-by-shot breakdown.

Use the worksheet below (copies will be provided) to make your notes (you may want to make rough notes 1st, then fill this in when we feedback as a class).

[I'VE ADDED A COMPLETED LIST BELOW; YOU COULD ADD MUCH MORE DETAIL, BUT THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU A GOOD IDEA OF WHAT TO DO]


HITTING DE-NOTES…denoting Britneys 1st 9 shots                                                            

How this might have looked (there is much scope for greater precision!!!):

Is this what you got?
