Song: Party All Night (Sleep All Day)
In our Media lesson today we looked at the music video 'Party All Night (Sleep All Day)' by Sean Kingston. We only managed to deconstruct around half of the video but as a class we all agreed that it was quite a weak example of a modern music video and all round it was very poor. Music videos like this are becoming more popular in this day and age and are becoming repeated over and over again.
Once we had deconstucted abit of the music video we begun to discuss the challenges we would face if we were to try and remake the music video.
- One of the main plus points of the music video is the fast paced editing in the music video. This would result in us having to shoot alot more shots and spend a much longer period of time editing all of this extra footage we had taken.
- There are numerous VFX used in the music video such as multi-layering for example. A phone had been filmed and then in the editing software the text has been added in, and the different sentences have been added to different layers for a 3D type effect coming out of the phone.
- There are also a number of shots that had been on a track which would be near impossible to replicate in professionally manner. The camera is put on a track which is timed at a certain speed to capture the perfect tracking shot that doesn't shake and is accurate. Unfortunately our school is not equipt with this kind of professional equipment.
