Planning “this is me”


I plan to make a film about a seventeen year olds life during the week and most of it is going to be shot in POV. I’m going to film it as a music video as have chosen a piece of music that I think reflects most seventeen year olds.


When planning the first draft I had a different music track which didn’t really late to me so I switched it to “The reducer” by The Manor as I think it is more connected to the concept. This band have a music video for “The reducer” and its Shot in all POV which gave me the same idea because i think it helps to connect the audience to the person behind the camera.

The Reducer by The manor

How its going to plan out


It’ll start of with a black screen with the date Monday on it then cut to a MID-SHOT of seventeen year old sleeping in his bed, then a extreme close up of his alarm going off at 7:00, the camera will then with back to the mid shot of him waking up, we’ll then get a long shot of him walking towards his mirror and there will be a quick cut to a low mid shot of him in his college clothes. The video will then cut straight to POV of the the teenager walking down the stairs and leaving his house to his car, then a transition to a mid-shot of his getting in the car, then there’ll be a point of view shot of him driving past the college he goes to. This next part the camera is on the floor and he steps out of the cart and shows his Reeboks and this is timed to the music, after we see him doing work on the mac. A black screen will come up with the date Tuesday and all the scenes from Monday repeat but are speed up, this goes for Wednesday as well, this it’ll cut to Thursday.


It’ll be POV of the teenager taking the dogs out for a walk at the park then there’ll be a a close up shot of him picking up his phone and reading a text from his friend saying “you out tonight” he’ll then reply “yeah”, the camera will then cut to him back in the bedroom getting changed to go out with his mate, then Found footage will start playing from his phone of him partying, the next shot will be him walking through the door and getting a interview of him from his mum saying why he’s late, a black screen will appear again with the date Friday and it’ll play the same footage from Thursday but will speed up and will be the same for Saturday as well, another black screen will appear again with the date Sunday on it and it’ll just have him sleeping. If the there is enough time i might repeat all the days  again but at a faster rate.
