Our group's finished edit
What worked well:
- We edited accurately shot-by-shot to match both the lip-sync and the frames with the original.
- The colour grading looked similar to the colouration of the original video shots and brought a sleeker, more beautiful aesthetic. We used the 'levels' tool to make the colours richer and changed the colours on the three way colour tool as well as changing the light, saturation and contrast to suit the aesthetic we wanted.
- It was an entertaining video with successful shot reconfigurations, e.g. mirroring the angle of a street dance shot as well as doing a zoom out for one of the cheerleader shots.

- Not all the shots were the same as the ones we were trying to mirror.
- Some of the colour grading shots were too intense and so some of the skin tones appeared off-colour.
- Despite shots being colour graded similarly to the shots we were trying to mirror from the original music video, due to a limited budget for set lighting and a lack of professional quality editing ability it was difficult for us to grade the shots identically, using the three way colour corrector and other features of Adobe Premier Pro.
