Music Video FINALLY COMPLETE!

We've managed to finally complete our music video!
After weeks of editing, cutting, copying and pasting, we've come to the end of editing and are happy with our end result.
One of the most difficult parts of editing was trying to get our miming in time with the music, and when the instrumental was playing for a long length of time, we didn't want it to look repetitive. The storyline fitted well and after a few weeks of using iMovie, we were confident with it and were cutting and editing lots of clips to make it look more effective.
Over the weeks of editing, our music video changed a lot and we replaced a lot of clips with new clips that helped fit with the music much better.
And finally, we now know just how important a storyboard can be!

Music Video Update - Filming for the first time.

We filmed for the first time today. We have a lot of it done. We still have the idea of a clock with all four girls around it, making the clock look the same size as the girls, but we didn't do that today. We got most of the verses done and one chorus, but we have decided we might need to film for other choruses.

Our girl band - Fiesta

The girl band featuring in our music video are called Fiesta.
We came up with this name because when we decided to have a up beat song with lots of dancing, this shows the young girls going to a party. In spanish, Fiesta means Party in English. We thought this would be original and work well with our image as this is the kind of image that we were going for.
They were spotted whilst performing in their local club by someone working for Universal music, whose other artists include Lady Gaga, Eminem and Amy Winehouse. They also used to manage the Spice Girls, whose group is quite similar to ours as they are all individuals and have the sense of 'Girl Power'.

Lyrics.

Half past twelve
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
Blowing outside my window as I look around the room
And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom

Is there a man out there
Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Movie stars
Find the end of the rainbow, with a fortune to win
It's so different from the world I'm living in
Tired of T.V.
I open the window and I gaze into the night
But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight

Is there a man out there
Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Is there a man out there
Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

My Chosen Song

I have chose to do the song "Gimme Gimme Gimme" sung by Amanda Seyfried because i thought it would be a good idea to change a old video into something that will be enjoyed by modern day youths. I am working with Sonal Rabadia, and together we have a formed a girl band, which is made of four girls.The song is about relationships and finding a man. I think this is a good theme as most girl band songs are based on love and men, which seem to sell well in the music industry, especially with teenage girls.

This is the image we are going for. We want our music video to look very girl based.We are using close ups on the band members applying make-up at the beginning to show them getting ready to go out and have a good time and to attract men.We want to show friendship between the members to connote friendliness and girl power. We will show this by being in shots together and singing as a group, aswell as having shots of us on our own to show we are individuals and although we work together we can still stand on our own two feet,like girls aloud. We want to each have a colour to represent each of us, like the Saturdays, to show our individal personalities and to show everyone that we are all different and unique in our own ways.The band is about friendship and believing that girls are just as equal as men. They believe in karma, what goes around comes around and believe that men who treat girls badly will get what they deserve. They believe in loyalty and have great trust for each other.
