The Shoot Day:
A Timelapse of Our Media Shoot.
I found the main shoot day to be a very enjoyable experience, it was extremely fun taking part in a more professional style shoot, and getting to learn about all the equipment and work that goes into filming music videos.
I also found it really interesting to be taking part in the shoot from more of a performance stand-point, rather than being behind the camera like I am used to.

It was also great to work alongside real industry professionals, and learn from them. The whole crew was really helpful, and always up for a chat about what its like working in the industry.

Throughout the day I also assisted the crew in several jobs such as stage management and the moving of props, and marking the shots with the clapperboard.
My Best Bits:
Overall it was a great day, but some of my personal favorite bits had to have been:
- Using the Tiger Balm to make myself cry. Although stinging a little bit I found it really fun creating tears using the tiger balm, and in the end it gave a really realistic crying look.
- Learning from the professionals was really great, and taught me a lot of cool tips and tricks that I can take into next year's Music Video project.
- I enjoyed the atmosphere of the day immensely, and just being able to have fun with my friends, and come out of it, with a professional looking film at the end.
Working on the shoot day overall was amazing though, and I feel like it's something I will really savor in later life, as not many people have the opportunity to take part in such a great day.
