Music Vid Shoot – Day 2

Today was Deans time to shine. Dean was playing a character who was missing his brother and who was feeling sad about not getting to see him because of his care situation. It was Dean’s first time working on a professional production and so he was a bit nervous but he brought good acting skills and developed in confidence as the shoot went on. Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 19.24.54We used a track and dolly to get shots of Dean in character, as he was looking through his phone and hoping for his brother to call. Then we moved on to shots about memories of times they had had together. Dean did amazing with no previous acting experience and really made the charter convincing.

Here Dean clutches a photo of his brother. It was quite an emotional scene and he did the team proud with his performance.

We now look forward to two more days of filming to capture the final scene. The video, which starts by putting their care experiences into context, begins to change from negative into positive and culminates in aspiration and hope, shows their resilience and will focus on all the great things these young people have to look forward to, despite all the experiences they have endured.

Here’s Dean’s character looking forward and in to the light…
