I shot some more footage of nature, which I feel has turned out a lot better than the first. In terms of quality I am a lot happier with the work, but also the way that each clips feeds into the next. The content is quite peaceful, with each plant swaying gently in the wind. It is not until it reaches the thorns that this become ever so slightly more unsettling, the music coming to a pause before beginning again as well as the literal visuals of the thorns. Although I am not entirely happy with the final clip where I am introduced into the video as I feel they could be more professional, I feel that short bursts of the self portraiture work mixed with the nature shots work well as it hints at what is about to come.
The music used isn’t my own (Keaton Henson – Alright), however this is something similar to what I want to produce. I will also have speech over the top which I have previously spoke about, and hope to have this applied within the video at the my next mock up. My next steps is to carry on with shooting more of the self portraiture work as well as working on what I want to say within the video, which I feel will shape the visuals further.
