Song: Keep It Red
I have decided that a possibility for my pitch will be 'The Swing Movement - Keep It Red.' This is because I believe it will be easiest to achieve.
- Easy access to the band.
- Existing footage that I have gathered from a while ago, including both gigs and band practice shots.
- A full understanding of the lyrics after a brief down from the vocalist.
- It is an easy song to put a narrative alongside band performances.
- There will be no copyright issues.
My current idea is to include both a narrative and footage of the band playing as a whole. With a fully functional band practicing room in my basement I have full access to all their instruments and amps. This would be perfect for filming in.
I am yet to decide on an idea for the narrative, but I am productively trying to think of an idea. Research into the genre is helping me come up with a rough idea though which I shall continue to do.
This is a music video made by Joe Gamble in 2007. The audio is an old recording and since then they have re recored.
