the tale of poor jenny
This music video was made as a group of three and was our first experience of using a gimbal. Through the video we tried to convey both the emotions and events occurring within the song, incorporating multiple locations and actors. One sequence I particularly liked was the meeting eyes at the end of the clip and its anchorage to the song. In retrospect, I should have taken more charge over the cinematography and storyboarding when I felt my ideas were the strongest, however working in a group meant compromises with the other members. I also believe the lighting of the scene was something to be improved on – the scenes filmed at night and under thick foliage are too grainy, with many shots being out of focus – if we had the time I would have wanted to re shoot. The use of the gimbal too meant compromises, this time swapping the camera for a phone – which again led to lighting issues with overexposure and automatic adjustments, where I lacked control on the look of the scene.
