A2 Music Video - Green screen practice

video
Here we made Jamie walk past the camera with the green screen in the background. We then decided to film a hand full of students waving at the camera, we then replaced the green in the background to the students waving. We done this as we wanted to see how good the green screen was.

Conclusion
In this questionnaire we found that:
·            --80% of the people we asked do watch music videos
·            --That we should do a performance and narrative based video as it was the top 2
·            -- That the 2 most watched music channels are KISS and MTV
·            --The top device music videos are watched on are computers
·            --The top genre of a music video was action
·            -- The most watched site for music videos is YouTube

So this results mean that we will be producing an narrative and performance based video as it was the favourite two, we also thought it would have been good to mix the two together as we think it will be a challenge to make and be a great outcome when produced.
I also found that most of the people that we questioned prefer to have action within a music video when watching it, but we cannot perform this type of genre in our music video as its based on a narrative which is a story so that would be the genre of the music video.
I found that a lot of the people that we questioned when watching music videos on the Internet over 70% of them said that they watch videos on YouTube and the second favourite was social media like Facebook, Twitter etc. So when going to promote our production online we should think using these two options as it would most likely give us the most views on the video. Linking with the Internet I asked 20 people “What device do you most watch videos on?”, and there was a veriety of answers from the 20 people but computer came out on top, then was tablets and joint 3rd was phones and iPods. We would have to have a video that would suit all 4 of these devices making the video fit for every single one of them.
