Final: Initial Chosen Ideas

2 Comments


Video 1: NUS (MTV)
Mood: Cheerful

Adaptation from

Basically, we do not have money nor capability to do the video panning from the top like the video, but we like the concept of passing balloon around and the blocks of words, NUS have them too! Hahah… The famous “I WAS HERE” block…

So after a round of excited discussion, we modified, and included the elements from everyone’s ideas…

On the NUS map, there will be 2 starting point (effect like the marauder’s map from Harry Potter) and the 2 points will move from one faculty to another on the map… This effect will be cut and inserted in the video on and off.
One male and female will start our from a different faculty each, carrying a balloon that carries the faculty’s name and run to a different faculty, entering a iconic place of that faculty and come out in their dressing attire (eg. Medicine – white coat/stethoscope, Architecture – pencil and paper etc, Science – Come our of laboratory with a cylinder and goggles etc )
As the 2 person enters the place and appears in a different attire, they will also have more and more balloons, collecting one balloon from every faculty and they will finally arrive in UCC, and be dressed as graduates. In front of the “I WAS HERE” blocks, the 2 person are actually couple, so they will *kiss* and let go of the balloons which will soar into the air… We will end with NUS- a start for your career, friendships, and even… love.

woohoo, sooooo romantic…. hahah….

Challenge: The balloons with Helium are quite costly, so ahem, yup… and also the planning of the route around NUS.
Another bigger challenge will be to come up with the music and if possible song, for this video, it has to be super cheerfuly like the MV, different from the past NUS slow slow music…

Video 2: CNM (Advertisement)

Inspiration from:

I’ve shared this video with the class during my photo story critique session, so yup, I think this will be quite challenging as a video compared to the photostory. So I’m thinking if we can do something like a handshake with different people of different league etc… We haven’t really covered this video yet… so wonder how we can work on the filming…

  1. The idea of creating a clip similar to “Love Buffet Opening’ is interesting. If you could achieve most of what you planned, it will be great. However, please note… that the challanges are not only these:

    We had two groups of students created something similar to this and both of them did not achieve their plans. Another big challange is the the camera needs to follow the movement. Please beware, it will be very shaky, the light will not be the same if you plan to shoot it in different places with different lighting. Whenever you make a small mistake in the middle, you have to retake the entire clip from the beginning. For instance, when you take the clip, someone/ a stranger walks into the scene. You can’t ask them not to.

    The SG girl may have a similar problem. So just be careful.

    • Yes, Julian, so we are planning to try out with a digital camera to do a rough pilot video first and see what are the challenges…

      We also have the alternative of having everything filmed in UCC where each person represents each career and not each building… So that we won’t have a lighting problem~
