What I Added To My Second Draft

There were not too many clips that I had to add to my previous draft that I had completed, only a couple of touch ups to certain clips and I then had to film for clips that I would put in at the end of the music video.

Firstly, I had to re-shoot the opening where there is a establishing shot of the house the protagonist lives in. I had to re-shoot this as the image was slightly at a angle making the shot look like I was aiming for a canted angle to confuse the audience when my intentions were to just set the scene for the audience.

Secondly I had to re-edit a part in the music video so that the actions that the protagonist is performing syncs with the beat of the music. This makes the video flow more and fits the codes and conventions of this type of music video.

I also had to film clips to add in to the end of the music video. The first clip I filmed was the back of a clock showing the clock ticking. I used this image to represent time running out for the protagonist that is shown in the music video. The clock progressively gets slower and slower representing time running out for her, this matches with the narrative as everyone has died on earth so she thinks she must be next.

The next things I added were the two candles. This represents the protagonists two friends that are shown to be with her when she is having a flashback of a happy moment in her life. The candles are lit at the start then both of the candles go out at the same time representing the death of her two friends. Therefore the candles give a symbolic meaning to her friends. Candles signify the light in the next world therefore links into why I used them in my music video.

Lastly I recorded a clock in the darkness which says the numbers “06:2” this represents the date of the characters death which makes the audience feel shocked and upset when they finish watching the music video.
