My first actor will actually be myself, I will be playing the part of Jacob (the boyfriend). I thought I would be an appropriate choice for this music video as I am very close with our other actor Ellie and so we are comfortable with each other acting out scenes which involve holding hands etc. My filming partner describes me as comedic, good looking, confident, and assertive. I think these qualities are useful for this film as it is fairly lighthearted and jolly, but also has serious moments which require a mature and solemn approach.
My second cast member is Ellie. She will be playing Daisy (the girlfriend) in our music video. I chose her because of her personality, she is very bubbly, smiley and charismatic. I know for a fact she loves the song we chose “Fast Car” so I thought lip-syncing would be very easy for her. As I am one of the actors I feel that Ellie was the best choice because we have known each other for 9 years, we are close and don’t mind acting out intimate scenes e.g. holding hands, hugging etc. This is important in our film as it is a love, romance video.
Sadie is the final person who is featured in our film. She is not actually acting but Jacob will be holding a polaroid picture of her as she is the ex-girlfriend. We chose her as she is pretty and photogenic.
