What do you personally want to get out of the whole A2 prelim experience?
I want to learn about the process of making a music video which will help for next year when we make our own original music videos, and to experience what a professional shoot is like.
Is it a challenge for you or within your comfort zone?
Performing in general is outside of my comfort zone as I have no experience of it, especially in front of a camera as it makes me quite self-conscious, so I think this will be a challenge.
Have you achieved/learnt anything so far?
We have been taught performance techniques and how to act confident and in character, which will make the process much easier. We also learned how to lipsynch effectively, which isn't needed for my character but may be a useful life skill. Another thing I've realised is how much work and planning goes in to shooting a music video and how many different roles are involved. When editing the audition videos we learned how to synch the audio and video using performance beds, which will be useful for editing the final video.
