Hey! So hopefully I get into six form next year and I will be studying Media as one of my A levels. I already do it at GCSE and enjoy it very much .
I know that at my school you create your own music video. Has anyone done this before? What is it like? Are you allowed to be in the video yourself as I was thinking of doing something with my Dance studio or something? Or am I only allowed to film and edit?
I was thinking of holding the camera for some parts of the video like a selfie video like in Justin Biebers "Beauty and the beat" as it is more like direct address and personal? And then being filmed myself and stuff and then also filming others?
Can you just let me know how it works and what you have done so far?
Thank you so much!

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

Depends which board your doing: I'm doing OCR and we are making music videos at A2 (second year). It is really enjoyable! You have to do a lot of research into music videos and present it in a blog (some schools do it differently but most are using blogs now). Have a look at mine if you fancy some inspiration! http://izzywatkinsmediaa2.blogspot.co.uk

For AS we made music magazines which was a lot of fun too. You have 3 units in media: a practical one, and two theory based ones. For AS out coursework/ practical unit was creating magazines and our two other units were on the film industry and TV dramas. There are many options when it comes to all the units: you could be doing the music industry, newspaper industry, you could be making a thriller trailer instead of a magazine: it depends on the school tbh.

Hope you enjoy the course as much as I did! xD
