A short film music video based on ‘Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head’ from B. J. Thomas.

This was a short film I directed for university in October 2021.

At the time, I didn’t have a camera, so this film was (quite obviously) shot with the camera on my Pixel 3. Despite the phone camera quality look of the film, I actually really like a few of the shots - particularly the close-ups. I storyboarded the entirety of the film before we shot it so I was able to shoot with existing shot composition in mind. The colour grade was maybe a mistake. It’s very overly saturated - which I honestly prefer over the duller colours in the original footage - but we’ve got my laptop screen with 45% sRGB coverage to blame for it.

Initially, we had planned to produce original music for the film, but with the deadline approaching, we settled on using ‘Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head’ from B. J. Thomas.

I made a ‘sequel(?)’ in 2022 utilising unused footage when my umbrella that I used in the original music video broke.
