‘Madam Erica’ – Hot Chick Banged – Practice Edit

Standard

For our practice edit, Gwilym and myself have chosen to take the first 20-30 seconds of ‘Madam Erica’ by the German band Hot Chick Banged, and completely recreate it with the same editing, mise-en-scene and camera work. This video entails a man eating alone at a table (relating to main setting of our video) as well as individual shots of band members which we may include in our original UMV (unofficial music video) for That Handsome Devil.

We are doing this practice shoot to make sure we are able to; edit to the beat, as well as lip sync the visuals to the audio (which we can only do within the last 5 or so seconds). For editing to the beat, we decided that this was the best mutually liked song for it due to the fast paced editing relating to the introduction guitar riff and the drums.

For this practice shoot we aren’t going to hire any actors/musicians, instead Gwilym and I are going to do different parts our selves, an advantage to having individual shots of the band members is that we can multi-role. Gwilym is being; the man at the table, the drummer and the bassist and I am going to be; the singer and both guitarists. For this shoot we have made a list of everything that we shall need: list-for-practice-shootThis is the storyboard for our reproduction of the music video:

Whilst this practice task was useful, we did not manage to complete the filming and so have bits of the footage from the first 30 seconds of the song, fortunately we did manage to shoot all of the narrative footage needed.

Although we did not finish filming, we did learn an important lesson; when it comes to location, book it and make sure it’s available. We learnt this by not having a location, which is why we did not finish filming.
