Production Diary Week 4

On the 6th of March, we all put ideas together for new and necessary props that could be used for our live show. It had to tie in with the genre of music that was going to be played, for example, a drum set wouldn't fit in with the set if the artists wasn't even using the drums. Some examples we came up with was:

  • Strobe lights
  • Disco ball
  • Retro instruments
  • Smoke machine
  • Different coloured lights (gels)
On the 13th of March, we were told to think of some studio sets for the live multi cam shoot, and the final set idea will consist of different ideas put together. We were also told to have a start on the treatment.
I have a few ideas for a studio set that will be effective, for example,
If we could get all the equipment I want, we could start off by having a smoke machine, with a bright white light shining on the back of the artist, so for the beginning few seconds you can't see the artist/s face but only the outline. Once the smoke clears out, the set becomes more clearer and can see the props and layout. Around the set, there are retro instruments around, for example, a retro handheld speaker, retro microphone and any other retro instruments we can get as long as its related to the music. We can also use gels to give off different colours for our stage, but i believe if we use too many colours, it can look a bit odd, where as if we only use 2 or 3 different colours, it will look better.
There are many ways we can set up the studio, we need to take into consideration on when the studio is going to be used, what audience we are targeting and what genre of music the bands/artist are playing.
