For the video editing class I’m in I was assigned to make a music video as my midterm assignment. Naturally, my best friend Nicole offered to help me out as we have a history of making silly videos together in the past. I decided to make the video of a breakup song (“Same Old Love”) because I think the emotions you feel through a break up are so interesting and complex. We started off hoping to create a video that captured sadness but very quickly decided it would be more fun to highlight the crazy emotions that come out during a breakup (and then magnify them). Creating a video with my best friend was SO much fun. We made a day of it by meeting for a jog, brunch and then filming throughout town. Fueled by a delicious brunch at Morsel and LOTS of mimosas we couldn’t help but channel or inner Taylor Swifts a la Blank Space (despite listening to a Selena Gomez song on repeat). Seriously our day of Brunching, filming and non stop laughing was one of the best Saturdays I’ve had in a long time. I am so grateful for a bestie who is willing to help me out and can make me laugh by being crazy! I always have the most fun when I feel like I can let my hyper (and weird) spirit out. #StayWeird am I right?
Feel free to way our video and laugh at how insane we seem! It’s hard to pinpoint where our creative inspiration came from…we’re not THOSE crazy girls at all (;
Feel free to give me tips and suggestions if you like, I have to make a second revised version of the video next week so I am definitely looking to improve.
How was your weekend? Have you and your friends ever made a super silly music video? How did it turn out?
