Hey guys! While most of you are getting interviews done for your news stories, me and Micah are doing a totally different thing. For those of you who don't know what i'm talking about, me and Micah are producing a music video for the (TOP SECRET). The song that we will be making the video about is Happy by Pharrell Williams. The whole point of the video to get people to want to come to Kauai. I can tell you that making this video will not be easy but there will be some things that will make it fun to produce and create. The hard thing is that we will need to finish the music video before December 10 which is the due date for the music video. The lucky thing is that this will be a controlled project so that means we have control over what the actors do and what the video will be like. That is where planning plays a big role. But aside from all the hard work, this will be a very fun project to do.
The one thing that makes me very scared and pumped about this project is that it is due on the 10th on December. It may not seem hard, but we need to figure out what every second of the music video will look like. Every line, every note needs to be covered with video and we can't forget about anything. If you think about this, filming certain scenes will not just take an after-noon after school ends or just a full weekend of filming. It will take almost every weekend from now on and most Wednesdays after school. So this will not be as easy.
But at least the project will be controlled. When you go out to shoot interviews, you have no idea to what the person might say. They could say something plain and boring or they could say something heartfelt and exciting. But when you are filming something that you can plan and make a script before filming, you can make everything heartfelt and exciting. Since the song is called Happy, then we should make the video exciting and happy! Duh! And that means we will be planning out every shot and every second of the video so that will make it easier on everyone when we are filming and editing the video.
But aside from all the long days and night this project might take, it will be very fun for me and Micah. The (TOP SECRET) will be donating to the class $1,000 if we complete the video on time and is presented to all these people at this event as a surprise. THIS IS WHY I SAID NOT TO TELL ANYONE! Anyways, this video will be a lot of fun to produce with all the cool things we get to film. Other than that, producing this video will give that professional feeling to it. This will not just be a video that will be shared with the class and relatives. We are making this video for people who are a big part in helping our island grow. We will get to coordinate with the executive director of the program to help get this music video done. So it really gives that real world experience.
So thats about it. Now that you know what me and Micah are making for our second quarter project, please try to keep this a secret. So just one last warning, WHAT YOU JUST READ IS A SECRET FROM ANYONE OUTSIDE THE CKTV MEDIA PRODUCTIONS CLASS. DO NOT TO TELL ANYONE OUTSIDE OF THE CKTV MEDIA CLASS ABOUT WHAT YOU JUST READ. THANK YOU! So until next time, bye!
