Change in digipak idea

After deciding on the idea that digipak should have panels with the different girl’s faces on and sweets in the other boxes, Faye and I have decided to use another design which is a similar design to other album artwork of our genre. The design now includes all of the girls together on the front of the digipak, with balloons in their hands with the album name on. We have also used a layer of sweets with a low opacity which runs throughout the entire digipak. The flowing image of sweets continues on the back of the digipak and the song titles list on the back on top of different coloured sweets lining down the digipak. The inside panels of the digipak will continue with the theme of balloons, with the girls faces on top of different balloons and some single images of pink balloons behind the CD and DVD panels.

Narrative aspect to music video

As the majority of mine and Faye’s music video is performance we have decided to add a narrative aspect to the club scene at the end of the video. The girls will be dancing in a club and each of them in turn will leave the group to see the same boy. If will be shot different, for example with one girl going outside to meet him, one girl will receive a text, the other will be looking at their watch. The girls will each be shot obviously being distracted from the group activities in some way or another. Eventually the male character enters the club to find he is dating the same five friends and the girls realise they have been seeing the same person. A range of close-ups and medium shots of the characters would be appropriate to use in this scene.
