Today we filmed at Cranbourne House for one of our videos. As two other members of the group were participating in most of the filming, this video required more of a group presence as well as actors outside of our group. Our videos would show the beautiful scenery of Alpha Centauri, trying to persuade people to move there, and also run down areas of Earth, reminding humans that Earth will be demolished as it is extremely damaged. One of our videos would present the happy lives of the people who now live on our fiction planet Alpha Centauri, and they would give their opinion on why this planet is an ideal place to live.
Some of the people filmed for this video were outside our group and were asked to do some acting along with three members of our own group. I used makeup to create a distinguishable futuristic look, somewhat inspired by the futuristic and over the top costumes used in The Hunger Games.
I made a few sketches beforehand in order to record what kind of idea I wanted to produce in terms on makeup. I decided using bright colours and patterns would work well as they make the characters easily recognised as people not from Earth.
These stills from the video footage do not do justice to the makeup as it appeared much more vibrant in real life and the footage. I believe I did quite a good job in varying the styles and making the looks as unique as possible.
