P1T4 Nice Guys from Kapaa Middle School MEDIA on Vimeo.
Our newest project is music videos! On my team are Raiden, Tim, and Kynan. I like my team because it consists of my friends, who also turn out to be hard workers, so I think it will be a fun time. The storyline of our music video is guys believing that nice guys finish last, which is the title of the song we chose. However, in the end the guys turn into the "nice guys" and realizing it's not so bad. Our storyline relates to our lyrics because the song starts off by saying nice guys finish last, which is how our minds think in the beginning, but as it nears toward the end of the song it starts to talk about how the girls want nice guys, so in our story we turn into nicer people.
My favorite fast edit montage sequence is the sequence in the very beginning, where Raiden follows the script and bullies Loren, who plays Raiden's girlfriend. The reason I like this is because I think it was well executed in having a different variety of visual effects that match the theme of the shot. For instance, you wouldn't put an upbeat light colored filter on a sad shot, and you wouldn't put a sad looking blue color on a happy shot. I also think the timing is good because it matches the lyrics sung in the song. I have to say a big thanks to Raiden for that though, because he did all of the editing. Literally all of it, while Tim, Kynan, and I were working on our music video poster.
This music video showcases my best work because we put in different varieties of shots and lots of effects. I also think we did a good job acting and syncing up the lip syncs with our song. We also used a bunch of different composition techniques. It also shows our photoshop and editing skills. I think we did a good job on the poster because it shows we have an understanding of visual effects and the quick selection tool.
