2. PRODUCTION LOG:
• This document is for you to track the progress of your
production – filming, editing and post-production.
• This is so you can track what you did and how you did it,
explaining and amendments and changes you made and
tracking the decisions that have shaped the practical
creation of your music video.
• The more detail you include about how you made your music
video, the better. The document is broken down in to two
sections, Filming and Editing, each of these is then made of
specific elements that occur in both.
• For each slide there is a prompt detailing what you should
include, delete the prompt after you have complete the slide.
• Remember, images often show what you’ve done more
effectively than words. Use text to explain an illustration.
Explain what worked and didn’t work about your filming and how you
managed this covering the following areas:
• Technical – using the cameras and any technical equipment; this could
be how you did your lip sync, used the green screen, dealt with problems
with batteries, etc
• Logistical – did your locations work? Did you have any access
problems? Did it rain?
• Personnel – how were your cast/crew? Did anyone let you down? How
did you manage this?
• Planning – did your planning help? Do you think it could have worked
• Next steps – do you need to re-film? Film more? Have you changed your
*If you make any drastic changes to your video you MUST
add this to your planning documentation and state how and
why this has happened
4. FILMING –
Where appropriate add stills from when you were filming,
annotate where necessary
This was one of the scenes I used to set
the mood of the video, I feel that the
weather helped with this quite well.
I started the editing by importing all of the
footage including the bad clips, this is in case
those clips could be used in between the good
shots to help set the mood.
I then moved on to adjusting the brightness
and contrast of the clips to create the
aesthetic that I was looking for
Lastly I moved on to cutting the clips
and putting transitions in to help the
flow of the video
6. EDITING –
SETTING UP PREMIERE
Screenshot and annotate how you have set up a new
Premiere Pro project – indicate what you called it, where you
You should also show how you set up your timeline,
indicating the video settings used [e.g. DSLR 1080p 25]
I saved my project on my desktop under the name
“Joji – No Fun MV” this is because I’m not used to
macs so I found it easiest to leave it here.
7. EDITING –
Show how you imported your footage, your file set up in
Premiere and how you have organised your different docs
[video, audio, etc]
I Imported all of my footage and audio at once
and then sorted out the majority of the bad
footage. I then used the timeline and preview
window to find an order.
8. EDITING –
This is the timeline, It is where you
drag clips and audio into order and
This is the preview
window, it is used to
look at your work as you
are editing it.
This is the project
window, it is where you
import all of your clips
This is the effects
library, it stores all of
the basic effects and
transitions for both
audio and video
This is effect controls,
it is used to control
how strong certain
9. EDITING –
Show how you put together your basic sequence in the order
you want it – previewing clips, dragging to the timeline,
If you have a lip sync, pay special attention to showing how
you synchronised the footage with the audio track
To create the sequence I wanted I started
by dragging the song onto the audio
timeline, I then dragged each clip into
order without audio and cut them.
10. EDITING –
Show and explain how you have refined and improved your
initial sequence edit
When it came to refining the video at the
end I put all of my attention towards the
second half, this is because I had some
black sections that felt too jumpy so I
added some cross fade and a fade out at
11. EDITING –
Show and explain your colour correction process/effects
process – use staged screenshots to show each part of the
process and the effect. Explain why you chose to do this
For this video I created a preset based on old
VHS tapes, I used it in all of the flashback clips to
help reinforce the idea that it was a long time
ago. Another edit I made was lowering the
brightness and contrast on some of the later clips
to make it feel more moody.
12. EDITING –
Show how you exported your completed project, show which
settings you have used and explain your choice of file name
and where you have saved it
I saved my video in the same folder where
I saved all of the clips for the music video
on my desktop, the video is saved under
the name “Joji – No Fun MV Finished”
