Editing the music video, I have taken a big role in deciding what clips we as a group use down to the second for instance how the long clip lasts, a good example of this is at ....... where there are 5 different bit of footage that are very short and appear to flash then vanish. This fits the pace of the song perfectly. Another area of the film that i have taken great interest in is the duration of clips, I have experimented with speeding up certain shots and slowing down others, as I found this increased the impact they had if used correctly. I have however just generally been a big role in the editing and spent a lot of time cropping footage to size and placing it in the time bar, and also editing the contrast, brightness and equalisation of clips with Bonnie.
In terms of filming, I had to re-organise the location as Croome Court staff were un-helpful in terms of communication as to when we could and could not film. However when I had re organised the filming location of the band, I did most the filming as certain members of the group failed to turn up on time. I filmed almost all of the shots of the band minus a pan shot of them all, certain close ups of the drummer, and a shot of the guitarist and bass player. I also filmed almost all of the close ups of the singer, apart from a few which I made sure other members did, for fear of doing too much filming myself, and I filmed none of the shots of the dead girl as I had made sure this was left up to another individual in the group.
