Audience: We showed this version of the rough cut to members of our A2 media class (all aged 17/18years old). This is an ideal audience to show the rough cut to because it fits within our primary target audience for the music video of 15-24year olds. Our teacher also gave us some feedback on this version of our music video and he in in keeping with our secondary target audience.
- check the frame size is consistent throughout (do first walking it?)
- check lipsyncing lines up fully
- (0.21s) 'we were free' layering - playful footage
- Robbie walking up the steps - random. Only use once. first shot too short?
- Break performance up - window <3 shot?
- some shakiness which needs to be edited out or deleted
- (1.11s) drum - edit to the beat
- (1.21s) frame boys face better, get rid of girls hand from the corner
- also crossfade with the following shot
- motion tab - ask for help? 100% in point, 0% out point?
- split 2 shot up where licking the spoon - add robbie
- shakes whilst licking lips - delete
- phone shot is too random, doesn't fit
- space in the sky and train - link phone in on a layer
- blowing out the candles - put where the track really slows down and almost stops
- end - use the candle being blown out rather than the light being turned off
- layer kids on concrete for CU of feet at station

- (2.13-2.14s) edit to the beat when percussion comes in

- First two performance shots cut down
- Layer performance
- Jack agaisnt the lampost, c/u of boy and girl either side
- flying: slow down, ghosting effect (trailing), animated zoom
- more multiple layer
- More shot variation
- Split screen - (1,2,3,4), pop up one by one
- Jack sat on rocks: more shots of it, to break up performance, jumping off the rock-flying

During the creation of this we happened to be researching one more aspect of Robbie and found that on his Greatest Hit albums there is normally around 19 tracks listed whereas on ours there was only 10. After seeing this for the next draft we have added some more songs to the tracklisting. We also realised that a convention of a digipak is on the DVD to have exclusive gig footage whereas the Live at Knebworth that we chose was released as a DVD on its own. Because of this we have found a new exclusive performance session and changed it to this instead. We showed this to our teacher who is part of our secondary audience and an original follower of Robbie Williams, remembering his time in Take That and when he first launched his solo career.

We have also created a spine for the digipak.
This is the first draft of the middle panels we have.
