My proposal is to create a vlog, showing a day in my life as a university student living in London. I want to show my simple life, hanging around with my friends, having a laugh, making shitty meals that students do on a budget and just generally showing my viewers how happy I am living alone with my best friends. I want this video to be really sweet and cute, filming the beautiful scenery of Ealing where I live and showing the simple thrills in life. Like Zoella, this vlog with be uploaded onto YouTube for all of my friends and family to see, so I will post the link on to my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This video is aimed at people my age, young adults maybe also at university, so I’m going to make it funny and focus heavily on my friends because they are the people that help you get through this stage of your life, friends become your university family. As I know absolutely nothing about cameras, I need to research and watch tutorials on the Panasonic GH4 and camera operation in general so that I can get the best footage that I can! This will be the fun part though because I always love discovering new skills, and this is one thing I’ve always wanted to learn how to do. This is a skill that will stick with me for a lifetime, and so I am really benefitting myself by self-learning!
I also want to create an animated illustration for the opening of my movie, in the style of the drawings above, in order to give my vlog a personalised identity. My drawings are all very similar, my Instagram is full of my characters and I think by including a signature drawing in my vlog, it will show people my trademark style, also it creates a link between all of my work. However, I know I can draw, but what fun is there in just doing things I know? I want to try something new and so I am going to animate my drawing and bring it to life! I have only touched on animation and so practicing this skill and learning how to properly use After Effects is also a great new skill to learn!
