Correspondence with the cast

Getting in contact with our intended star

In order to get in contact with our intended star image (Tyler Simpson), we contacted him through email that we received from his YouTube channel and Facebook page. After we managed to get hold of his email address, Zeeshan Ali (the co-founder of our production company and the organiser) simply sent him an email offering the opportunity to feature in our music video as the potential main star. We then gave him a contact number in order to be able to accept the offer if he wanted to. The full email can be seen below:

Texting the star

In order to ensure that he was available for recording, we use the more informal approach in order to see if he was available for recording. The follow text message to Tyler simply asks if he is available on that certain day. The text can be seen below:

Contacting the production team

Once we had confirmed that the star would be available, I then contacted the rest of the production team in order to make sure that everyone will be available for filming, as we need the camera operator, the director and the other member in order to ensure that all ideas passed will be appropriate for the music video.

Create the initial edit of our opening scenes. It will feature one of the production members stating the location at the beginning of the video before the music begins. Once the music begins, we will match the cuts in terms to the beats so they change each time there is a beat. This will feature as our initial edit of the opening sequence to our video. We will then shoot the lip-syncing half of the video and edit this in later ensuring that the star image looks like he is singing the song. Once this is complete, we will then fill in gaps with extra footage of the location we took.
