We were given the task of coming up with an idea for music video for any genre. We were given 2 minutes to pitch it to the class.
Here is my pitch:
After everyone in the class had pitched we formed into group.. I will be working with Conor O'Loughlin and Sam Boyes. Together the three of us will create a music video for Conor and Sam's band Sunburnt in December. However if this doesn't work out we will create a music video for Parkway Drive's "Breaking Point". For this music video we will be taking inspiration from the film "An American Werewolf in London" as well as taking elements of Conor's pitch.
The idea consists of a band packing gear into a van after their last gig and set off to the location of the next one. The next gig would be in a town called Ilkley. Whilst travelling along the moors the van breaks down or a band member spots something. Whilst the band have stopped they all split up and get picked off one by one. There will also be performance aspects either in a small cramped room or whilst the band were in limbo on the moor with guts and blood scattered around the location. Another possibility is to add 'found footage' to add to the video.
Here is a link to Sam's post on his idea to see further details: http://hazepictures.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-idea.html
