Yet another project, actually the last project we will have this year. It has been three years that I have had this class and this is our last project. A music video!
My team consists of me, Makaio Gonsalves, Meleana Keawe, and Ashley Alfiler. I've worked with Makaio the past two years, Mele two years ago, and this is the first time I will be working with Ashley on a music video. The song we have decided to for this year's music video is When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars. In the beginning, we each had 5 song ideas. From here we reviewed the songs each of us choose and discussed our options. After noticing that me and Ashley had When I Was Your Man on our lists we decided to do this
The original song has to do with a break-up of a boy and girl. The boy regrets what he did when they were together and is sad. Since this would be both awkward and weird to film we decided to take a more humorous approach to creating this music video. For our re-creation, the story will be of three friends pet/friend chicken who they liked very much. When another person, Makaio comes, the chicken and him have an instant bond. The three friends are then sad and sing about their regret about the relationship with the chicken. They are also seen in various places remembering the times they had together and how they hope Makaio will treat the hen.
After 3 years of being in this class, I have learned a lot about media production. We have created many projects such as animations, short films, commercials, and music videos like this project. At the end of the year Mr. Sanderl usually says "This project should show your highest quality of work" mostly because it should include everything we learned throughout the year. This being the last project I will every do in this class, I really tried to make it the best that we could make it. I think that this Music video came out really well and looks great. I believe that after years in this class this is the quality that should be expected.
I hope to not only be able to use the media production skills in this class but also the life skills I have learned within this class. It was a great 3 years of G.T. and I hope to continue education in high school learning as much as I can. Overall I think this class has taught me a lot that I will be able to use for the rest of my life.
