As I mentioned in my previous project, fashion photography is something I’m passionate about so I took some photos whilst filming.

Final Film

When filming I couldn’t do the film noir lighting I wanted with the patterned shadows over the face so I had to use a light with no shadow filter instead. In the end I think it worked well with the overall film.

I ended up leaving out the glass smashing scene I filmed because the quality didn’t turn out that good and it took away from the film.

Shot List

Luckily enough majority of my shots can be filmed on the one day because I don’t need to move location/sets. Hopefully I’ll get all of my shots filmed in a couple of hours. There are two shots that I don’t need the model for that I am planning on filming later that day.shot list

Possible Songs

After rummaging through my iTunes and YouTube I’ve collected the songs that I think will best suit my idea for my film. When I first read the brief, the obsessed theme stood out to me the most but not in an obvious way. I thought along the lines of the good obsession you would have with somebody, like lust.

Jason Derulo Ft Jordan Sparks- Vertigo

Ariana Grande ft Nathan Sykes- Almost is Never Enough

The Weeknd- Wicked Games

The Weeknd- High for This

Miguel- Simple Things

Ed Sheeran- Kiss Me

Katy B- Still


Mood Boards

These are the mood boards of my idea for my film. I love the film noir style so I plan to have lighting similar to that theme. I also want to add in smoke. I think slowing it down in the film will have a really good effect for the theme as well as the lips being a very sensual part of the body.


As in terms of outfits I was thinking about having my model in something very fitted and slim although it would probably have to have been in black and black could end up making the model disappear in the shadow parts of the set. So instead I went with a casual contemporary outfit with some heels to still get the lady figure I want.

New Project

Because our new brief was so similar to my previous video that I handed in I’ve decided to go more for a kinetic type video than a storyline. I’ve always loved how people create lyric music videos so I thought researching them would be a good starting point.

Below are some videos I’ve came across that I like.


These two in particular really stood out to me. I love the film noir style with the type in the first one and then the simple black and white with different standard shots.

additional work

Because I am so passionate about photography, fashion photography in particular, I took this opportunity to take some photographs while I was filming as an extra part to my project.  Here is a selection of the best photographs I collected on day 1 and 2 of filming.

Final Film

After days of organising and repeatedly going over arrangements I’ve already created to change them I finalised my film.  I’m quite happy with the outcome and I’m pretty pleased with how my vision has turned out.  Of course I watch it and can still see things I could change but that would consist of a longer time frame to be able to do that.


Today I began my filming! I couldn’t wait to get out to see if how I imagined my shots would be the final outcome! Here are some photographs from day 1 of filming.
