The 1950's rock song, "Rock Around the Clock", influenced our cinematic choices by giving us guidelines of how the actors should look as well as act during the black and white older looking scenes as opposed to as the modern-day colored scenes.
We had a very distinct beginning middle and end to the story we portrayed in our music video. Although the script order was very specific, we could only shoot specific scenes on specific days. For example, shooting the modern scenes in one day but taking two days to shoot the black and white scenes, and eventually creating a flow throughout the video.
Mise en Scene
There were many tiny details that went into creating this video including the transition from colored to black and white film, the different ways the actors had to act and dress, and the many locations used to portray a dramatic and fun filled dream a boy has during class.
The whole video was recorded on an Iphone 7+, and shot by hand. Different effects such as black and white as well as a darker tint during the movie theatre scene were used to best resemble the fantasy we were trying to create for the audience. Some scenes were shot directly facing the students, while others used different angles to fit more of the actors into the shot and give a full view of the events occurring.
