Foo fighting and BIB voting

I’m so blooming honoured to have been shortlisted for the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging video award. Coming out of a cold, dark winter it feels like the first green shoots of Spring.  So it felt appropriate to finally get this vid up.  I used to teach kids how to make Pop Videos for A level Media Studies. Pop video theory claims that the images and editing either illustrate, amplify or cause a disjuncture with the lyrics.

This wasn’t intended to be a pop video, in that it’s unplanned, unstoryboarded, shakey and short on some shots and techniques. But as I started playing with the shots, I realised our tale of a child free day seeing the Foo Fighters, amplified the lyrics… Homemade, but not quite home video…

It’s naughty to use music in video, but given I am promoting the amazing musical experience that is the Foo Fighters, I hope they may turn a blind eye…

And if you would consider voting for me click on the badge. Thank you. Feels like I am coming out of hibernation.
