We all know that a music video tells a story in a sequence of shots. But what if I told you, I've watched a music video that told the story in just one shot? Pretty cool, right? Now what if I told you that this particular shot had no actors or actresses in it? So, how would they tell a story, in one shot, to fill up 2 minutes and 27 seconds, with no actor's at all? Well, for this week's reflective response, I'll be talking to you about a one-shot music video for the song, Knock Knock by Brunettes Shoot Blondes. I've stumbled along this video under the staff picks on Vimeo and I have to admit, it's pretty impressive. This music video shows an interplay [the way in which two or more things have effect on each other] of Apple devices playing little snippet's of animated video. So basically, it's video of short separate animated fragments, but these animated fragments on the devices have to be synchronized, or else everything won't work as smoothly. It probably took a bunch of takes to get it perfectly, all the devices playing at the same time in harmony, and all the devices in the right spot. I really like this music video because of it's uniqueness and cleverness. Being that they used Apple devices, it was really cool how they incorporated Apple devices' features, like apps, the lock screen, the notification bar, into the video. I admire this video and it's crew because of the hard work they had to go through with, to make the animated clips, to get it all synchronized, to get everything in the right place, this music video took a lot of work to do, even if it's only in one shot and there's no actors in it. That's all for my reflective response, Thanks for reading. Also make sure to read my constructed response, "My Stress Relievers!" Bye!
