production log

since last updating my blog, I have had to do many things. Firstly, I had to plan amendments to my music video after we screened our music video at the preview where our rough draft was analysed by a panel. The music video previews gave us a better understanding of what we would have to do to achieve a level 4. We are now in the process of making these alterations as we have filming tommorow were we will try to get all the filming completed. In addition we are also having to complete our evaluation by next week as this is the evaluation for all the coursework.

Production log

Since last updating the blog, we have finished the rough cut of our music video before the deadline. The only thing we now require to do is put the two halfs of the music video together and fix up and work on the improvements suggested in the peer review tommorow. Our ancillary task is almost finished we are only required to finish of one of the inlay cards. On our own we are also doing evaluations of our production work. So far , I have completed question 1 and worked on question 2 which Iam hooping to get most done of by the end of the week.

History of a Music artist

Michael Jackson
This music artist began with making music with his brothers, they were known as Jackson 5. The music video's they made were not high budget and mostly based on them just singng. Even so, they managed to achieve relative success for a group that was not heavily acked by its record label. It was with the Jackson 5 that Micheal Jackson talent as a solo artist was discovered. This lead to Micheal Jackson releasing his first solo album. The music videos made in his new album had a moderate budget, despite this his album and muic videos achieved high success and are still played in modern times showing there timelessness.
Later on Micheal Jackson's career he became extremly famous and was begining to be known as the "king of pop". This lead to his recod label heavily supporting his next album, the well known "THRILLER". In this album he had classic hits such as "Billie Jean" and "THRILLER". Michael Jacksons album thriller was and still is the highest selling album ever, selling in excess of 110 million copies so far. This album and its high cost of production at the time established Michael Jackson as one of the most successful artist of all time. In this album Micheal Jackson also showed off his performance and dancing skills. This made Micheal Jackson also be well Known for his performing abilities and not just vocal talent.
After Thriller, Bad and many more Micheal Jackson showed a more different side of his in his Dangerous album. In this album many of his songs concentrated morre on Jacksons singing than dancing and performing skills. This album was to be one of his last and although it was not one of his most successful albums it still achieved a lot of success when compared to other music artists at the time.
