Our Progress - Media Studies
So far we have made significant progress in our preparation for filming which we aim to start either on Wednesday 16th November or sometime next week. In our preparation, we have included:
- Relevant theory research including musical theorists such as Andy Bennett and Andrew Goodwin, and explored how we can use this research in relation to our final media product. For example, the relationship between lyrics and visuals is considered important in Goodwin's theory.

- Relevant genre research including analysis of music videos from similar artists such as Professor Green and Example, as well as researching the musical influences of Plan B such as Smokey Robinson and the conventions used in soul music. This will help us gain an insight into the conventions typically seen in soul/blues music and will allow us to create a unique feel to our music video.

- We have created seperate pitches for our music video and proposed them to a focus group which we filmed and uploaded to Youtube as part of our portfolio. We should have the video up on Weebly soon.

- Completed our screenplay and relevant shotlist, and have now begun completing our recce reports and finalising our storyboards.
