In this paper I discuss process of making a music video for a thesis film after seven years of film school and during a global pandemic. I will mention how with music videos some different rules apply as compared to a narrative film, especially considering the final product is technically client work for the music artist. Additionally, I will go over the post-production process, being that it was my first time incorporating VFX into my workflow. The reflection gives insight to the overall aesthetic and practical choices that went into the final image, how me and Yaszmine the Sun Queen portrayed her persona with “perfume allure” and camp in mind with how she hopes to portray herself and her brand. Lastly, I discuss future hopes and dreams for the future after finishing seven years of film school.
