Question 1

In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

We attempted to make our video similar to the real Be My Wife video, by using similar styles with clothing and attempted to replicate the different shots throughout the video. Our video is similar to the real video as we have used one actor playing David Bowie and instructed them on what shots were needed so they could act in the way Bowie does in the real video. We intended on making our video as similar to music videos as possible by following the conventions of multiple music videos. To make our video as good as possible we researched how to film certain shots effectively and attempted to imitate the skill. To plan our video we watched the real Be My Wife video and paused the video at each shot, this allowing us to storyboard each shot and write how long each shot lasts ensuring our video was past the 1 minute mark. When we edited our video, we ensured we had the beginning scene at the start of the real video at the start of ours to show how much we were replicating the video. Throughout the editing we had to ensure our actors lip sync matched the music therefore we had to cut some clips and move the music until it all matched.
