Hello, I'm
Matthew Romo (1660) from Group 2. The other embers of my group are Harry Kettenis (0390), Josh Stevenson (0796) and Ysabel Hudson-Searle (0331).

Hopefully navigation should not be an issue on my blog; 'labels' on the right hand side near the top will direct you to groups of posts from specific areas. Research and Planning, Production, and Evaluation work should all be available to see under their respective A2 labels. The other labels will direct you to work from my AS level and preliminary activities for A2.

Also, by clicking on the "Latymer Music Video Blog" link above the labels, you can go back to Latymer's main music video blog where all other blogs from my class can be accessed.

Finally, I hope you enjoy observing and assessing my work as much as I did creating it.

Rough Edit

As soon as we had completed a day of shooting we edited the shots onto our sequence to see what worked well on screen, and consistently did this throughout the construction of the video. Here is an early rough edit we made about two thirds of the way through obtaining footage. Some sections are contain nothing as we had not made final decisions such as on shot order or what to include or miss out to create a video that made sense and had clear structure.


We took some feedback from peers and teachers at this stage to help determine our direction, and some of the main points were
  • it seemed like a series of shots without a strong consistent performance really holding them together
  • the story didn't have a proper order; it seemed more like sections of narrative had just been inserted in without enough consideration or any clear structure
  • the rose in ice being broken is quite an aggressive action and looks out of place in a calm part of the song (the intro)
  • we had intricately edited sections of the video such as the back shots but not thought about the whole picture

The staff were actually very pleased with the majority of our footage, and we were confident with this too, however as a group we acknowledged that we had jumped too quickly into the editing without planning how we would do so

Some of the important decisions made:

  • insert performance bed
  • take out some of the narrative shots that don't look as good
  • aim to equally spread out conceptual shots
  • begin with infinity white backdrop 'wet look' CU
