Opening title.

When I finished my music video, the last thing I did was the opening credits you see on any music video. This was last thing Friday afternoon, so I put a draft there for now.

I placed the basics there, merely to see what it looks like. I will soon be changing it to something similar to this.

Scart 12 & the Blur
Out of Focus
Rough Trade Records 2010
Director: Tara Costello

Finished Album Cover.

At first I thought using two different shots of Hannah would be too much, but after much feedback people seemed to like the idea of having photographs of Hannah, after all this is her album. Once I made this, I also preferred this idea. I decided to have the out of focus shot of Hannah on the front without any text. I feel this is more striking and works with the title of the album 'Out of Focus'. I moved the text onto the spine as I had nothing there in last attempts. I kept the inside the same as I was more than happy with it. With an obscure, astract front cover I decided to tone it down a little and use one of the photographs from the first shoot.

Track names
I tried to make up song names which fitted in with the theme of the song, 'Spiracle', I wanted the album to have an ongoing theme. The theme is focused on the notion of remembering and looking back. I also included the album name as a track, and by the time I got to track number 7 I was out of ideas. I used the word 'Fuzz' as it reminded me of the televisions, a key motif throughout the process. I may change this later. The last track is called 'Warhola', similar to David Bowie's 'Andy Warhol', this is a tribute to the pop artist. It was a photograph of him which inspired me to work with televisions and I did not want to name the track after him, so I used his real last name.
Music video = FINISHED

I am now where I was before. Having to re-do work is annoying, but it is looking better.

I have almost finished my music video!

Things that have changed
- A time lapse of Hannah now takes place at the end of each chorus on the word 'spiracle', I think this is repeated about three or maybe four times.
- I have inserted the old child footage every time the line 'Please help me' is repeated. This works well as the footage I have used I seem to be struggling. For example in the first clip I cannot blow my birthday candles.
