GROUP VOCAL WITH MS. PAIGE
Sunday Best starting at 6:40.
Help your performer treat this project like a real live performance. Spend some time putting together the details–costume, hair, makeup–and give yourself plenty of rehearsal time before filming. Here are the guidelines for performers in Ms. Paige’s Group Vocal class:
HAIR & MAKEUP:
- Dancers should dress “performance ready” for this video, just as if they’re performing in front of a live audience!
- Hair back from face and secured, in a “school day” style.
- Wear blush on the cheeks, colored lipstick, and eyeshadow to enhance features for the screen.
Any yellow colored top and denim on the bottom (shorts or jeans) is perfect for this song! Think bright and exciting. If you don’t have a yellow shirt at home, we found a few affordable options here:
ACCESSORIES AND/OR PROPS:
- No accessories or props needed for this routine.
Two videos due June 17.
- Send a video of your performance using the settings listed below.
- Send a video of yourself “close up” to the camera, smiling, waving, bowing, blowing kisses, etc. for 10 seconds with no music.
When preparing to film your part for our Showcase, please take care to do the following so that we can have consistency in the clips (any not conforming will be returned and asked to be reshot):
- Performer should be in full costume and makeup as noted in Performer Details.
- Make sure you smile and perform full out with energy and enthusiasm!
- Performers should wear headphones for this recording and listen to the song on a separate device than the one recording the performance. We only want to hear the singer’s voice, not the music in the background. We will put your singer’s voice into the final video with the track behind it.
- Plan to film during the daytime in a room that provides good natural light.
- Make every effort to have a solid color background wall, or make the background as clean as possible.
- Set your phone to the highest camera setting possible for maximum quality.
- Make sure the volume is all the way up on your phone before you start filming.
- Be sure to begin filming about 5 seconds before the start of your performer’s routine and for five seconds after while your performer holds the final pose.
- Line up the bottom of your camera frame with your performer’s hips. We want to see the upper half of the performers body for this routine.
- The phone must remain still while filming. Place the phone still on a table or your lap, etc. so it doesn’t move or shake while filming the routine.
DIRECTION OF CAMERA/PHONE:
- Film in Landscape Orientation (Horizontally) on the phone, with the camera lens on top.
