Knowle West Bling Music Video

We are making a music video to the spectacular Knowle West Bling jingle based on the residents local mission. And we need you to join us to make the video a real ‘bling’ thing!

The video will show the community centre’s makeover – so come on and show us yours!

The theme is transformation, starting with something dull which turns into something bright and ‘blinging’, shown through each person’s before and after videos.

You can transform yourself, an object or space!

All you’ll need to do to get involved is film 2 short video clips explained below.


VIDEO 1 – DULL
The first clip will be before shot.
(Maximum 10 seconds).

Think of an idea which shows something dull or boring. Here’s some ideas:
A craft project that needs something extra…
Lounging on the sofa…
Brushing your messy hair (which hasn’t seen a salon for months!)…
A garden needing some love…
VIDEO 2 – BLING
Spin around to transform the scene to a totally ‘blinging’ after shot!
(Maximum 45 seconds).

Here’s an example:
Your craft project is covered in sparkles!
You go for a walk outside with a friend!
Your hair is suddenly styled and looking fabulous!
Your garden is full of lovely bright flowers!
DANCE
After your transformation, you can also video yourself doing our BLING dance of 5 moves if you like!

The dance moves can be done standing, sitting or however you like!

Top tips for filming

DO:

*Turn on the selfie option so you can see yourself.

*Film with camera on Landscape view/turned sideways.

*Take one breath before starting the movement and one breath after finishing the movement for clearer movement and easier editing.

* Have a think about Lighting – Daylight is best if possible – try not to stand in front of a window, we’ll only see the shadow!

DON’T:

*Don’t worry about making mistakes. Sometimes those are the best part. And if not, we have the magic of editing!

More Filming Tips

The important thing is to try something out and have fun with it. The more fun — the better!
