Last weeks blog detailed Sarah's plans for her January prize win (see here for her blog/bio/prize details)
Sarah has completed her shoot and is now editing. Sarah came in for a pre-production meeting, discussed the storyboard, style, tech elements and logistics ready for her shoot the following week.
This process gave us a great insight into the challenges of planning the shoot and It also gave us some good ideas for the February winners project too.
Sarah decided to use her Free Studio Day Prize as an opportunity to make a music video far a song called 'Reaction' for an artist. Roberta's Facebook page can be seen here:
Sarah used studio 1 and shot in monochrome and had a big emphasis on shadows and light in high contrasts.
Using 2x 2kw Fresnel's we managed to created angular lines and depth to the space in Studio 1. When we added our smoke machine it gave the room more dimensions and levels for the dancer to move in.
The whole crew got creative with flashing images, back lights, moving lights which is all part of the prize. See kit available to the winners, and all potential clients, here.
I have a keen interest in performance arts and immediately decided to produce a film featuring a lengthy dance sequence and this combined with music led to us producing a music video working with two talented artists, both Alize and Roberta DeFrancia''
''The final video will show strong links between the dance sequences and the vocal performance as the narrative reveals the dual personality of the character''.
''The full music video will be kept under wraps until the summer release of the single on iTunes but for now we have put together this featurette which in itself has its own standalone narrative and works as an individual film.
''We had a fantastic time working at Camberwell Studios and received hands on support from the studio Manager, Sam Parkinson who is very creative and has a great eye for detail. The mosaic piece is just a small way of saying thank you to the studio for this great opportunity.''
