Here are a few of the first images in the first location.
These were my first attempt.
Then we moved to a different location and tried something else. We found a white screen in front of a stage, so we pulled the curtains across so that it was dark behind and had the dancer against the screen. This is what it turned out like:
As you can see from the board the costumes in each square are different. When the camera cuts to the different location, I didn't want just the background to be different, I wanted the dancer's outfit to be different as well. Each square of the story board is each different cut.

I have also done some samples of fonts I may use to see what they look like and which one looks best.

- Mow Cop
- Biddulph Grange Gardens
- Knypersley Pool
- Little Morton Hall??
- Biddulph Moor (Rocks)
I may add some other locations to the list once I start filming.
Here are some images of the locations I may choose to film at.
A view from Mow Cop. This would be the perfect place for the dancer. I like this particular location because it has a fantastic view.
The image on the right is an image taken at Biddulph Grange Gardens. This would also be a great place to film because of the archway between the two statues.
This is another location I might use. The image is taken of Knypersley Pool. It a great place to film because there will be a great background behind the dancer and it is easy to get to.

This is another video from Jason Derulo. I partically like this video because it uses similar techniques to what I want to use. He is dancing all the way through the video. A clever point about this video is that lights flash to the beat of the music. This gives the video speed and energy. I may decide to use this idea in my video.
The techniques I like used in the video are the camera shots. There are quite a few close-ups on the dancer's face. There are also quick cuts that are made brighter using lights. I think that flashing lights in the video will make it look a lot better. I like the technique that has a close up, then a long shot so you can see the dancer and what he is doing.
The colours are quite interesting in this video too. The dancer is wearing colours that match and the background lights as well.
