For this drink awareness video my idea involved filming. I wanted my idea to look like a snapchat story of a drunken night out. I wanted it to feature my one friend tom who is a first year. I decided that using a first year would connect more with the target audience. The filming I needed was shot of pre drink, the night out, the walk home and the getting back home to halls. My one problem was the fact that snapchat is portrait so I wanted to see if this would work in other ways. When discussing this idea in university as feedback the decision was made to keep it portrait. I then wanted the voice over to be from a sober point of view telling themselfs to stop and think about what they are doing.
I gathered videos from actually nights out along with shot I took myself to help the video make sense and relate to my idea.
This is the script that will be recorded over the tom of the footage:-
University is both social and actually getting the degree. With this comes alcohol.
I always find I drink way too many at Pre-drink and now I’m thinking about it why didn’t I just slow down. The start of shots are never a good idea and I always feel pressured into them but don’t allow yourself to be pressured.
I hope the neighbour never heard us last night I don’t want to make a bad impression for the university.
I seem to always find myself having a few too many. I never seem to consider the number of units I’m drinking when on a night out the recommended amount is 14 units a week and I drink more than that on just one night.
I wish I paste myself and drank water in-between each drink. I am not thinking about the amount I am drinking at all. I also spent my taxi money on entry in to the club how am I going to get home now.
I shouldn’t have chosen to walk home alone I shouldn’t have left the group on a night out and wish I’d stayed with everyone. I could have put myself in danger or others around me.
Why didn’t I stop Sam from cooking last night being that drunk she should have never cooked pasta she could have set the house on fire.
I should have stopped her instead I sat there and filmed her.
You can find the balance and enjoy the university life with ease.
I want my video to be current because the last video made was very outdated and I don’t want mine to be like that. My original plan was a documentary style video but I think this is a outdated way so I looked into using the social media route.
