Video Production 2-Week 6

Our title sequence had started to take shape but the music still needed to be sorted. We all came up with different background scores. We wanted something with attitude. Individually we chose different music and all were quite similar in their context. We finalised the music and were all happy with the tune.

We also brain stormed title names and came up with a variety ideas:

Mad dogs

Gangsters Aloud

The Pranksters

We are it!

The crazy trio

The Fab Detectives

Game is on!

The Bold Guys

The Fearless

The Match

We decided to go ahead with ‘The Crazy Trio’ as we felt this was the title that described the attitude and tied in with the video with all three of the group playing there roles to perfection we thought!

Choosing the typography was more time consuming as the opening credits had to show the same emotions as the sequence. We finally found the font that we liked and worked it in photoshop. The result was very effective.

We thought we had the final video but as we looked at everything together we realised a few tweaks were required. The editing needed to be sharper and the music linked better. After a few more editing sessions we finally had the final video.

I feel as a group we worked really well together. We communicated all the time and completed the work within the deadline.

Video Production 2 – Week 2

We got together again and continued working on our ideas and extending them. We tried to improve our plan and work out the finer details. We watched more videos together trying to pin point a central idea. We liked videos like the James Bond series, The Bourne series, Die Hard films, The Game, Sherlock Holmes.

Video Production 2 – Week 1

We had to choose our own groups for this project. Me, Dee Kay and Steven linked together to make our group. We were given a brief to create opening credits and watched a few videos on this topic during the lecture.

We brain stormed various ideas. For example, comedy, crime, depression and thriller sequences. In the end we decided to go with an idea along the lines of a crime/thrller video.
