For our main project we will have to find an artist, and make a music video with one of their songs. We have been put into groups, My own group is one comprising of 4 members:
Initially we looked at a Melbourne Busker by the name of Kiwi Muzo. However, he did not have any original songs already recorded. Then Jenny found us contact to a Melbourne based artist called ‘Aivy’. Through a mutual friend she was able to contact Aivy and we soon found out that she had an Original song recently recorded and an interest in a music video being made. Here is the song:
We have not had a full group meeting on the concept but there is an idea that we have started to brew. The Vibe of the song is outdoor in a natural space and its quite playful. It is about infautiation, a shy girl who is observing a boy from afar. To me this is the classic story of unrequited love or a crush. Here is an idea that was put forth:
Aivy in a field when she sees a boy with a big bunch of primary coloured helium balloons. He does not notice her, but she noticed him and follows him. You see her watching his interactions with other people, hes very charming and charismatic. Throughout the video the boy drops balloons (off screen, so the intention, whether accidental or not is kept a mystery) and Aivy follows and collects them. In some sense they are metaphorical for the qualities that she admires about him. As the video progresses she gets a larger and larger bunch of balloons, until in the end he sees her with a massive bunch and he has only a few left. At this point they start talking and the sun sets and its very playful.
Some ideas that have been discussed amongst the group also includes:
- He could have ‘Elvis hair’ as this is mentioned in the song
- As she walks through the trees she could struggle to stop the balloons from popping.
- There is a drum that sounds like a popping sound, this could be used.
Anyway, the prospects here are quite exciting and I cant wait for the project to get underway in full force.
