Character list

For my recreation video of 'Hall of Fame' I am of course required to create a character list and, although this is not set in stone, this is the provisional list for our characters and other roles within the production;

Front man: Ben will be playing the front man of the band, he will be the singer and main 'star' of Burrito Dorito (our band name). Similar to Danny O'Donoghue of The Script, he will be there not as a character within the video, but there just to represent the group and try to look good (he'll have to do his best!) 
The Scripts front man
Ben; the front man

Similarly to 'Hall of Fame', we plan to have two separate narratives, one of a boy and one of a girl.
For the boys part we plan to base it around some sort of sporting achievement, and so a sporting' challenge' will take place. We aim to include much 'manliness' in the video for the male role, and so one of the characters will have to put in a lot of effort and commitment, fulfilling the notion of working hard to achieve your goals.

For the girls part we may not necessarily include a sporting role, although that is an option, but may instead head for a more school or job based feature, in which they would overcome some sort of social or work difficulty.

NOTE: this is not definite and may be changed if necessary.

'Proud'; Heather Small; comparison with 'Hall of Fame'

Similar music videos to 'Hall of fame'

As recently shown, the music video we have decided to recreate is 'Hall of fame' by The Script and Will.I.Am, because of this I am going to display and analyse music videos which I feel have similarities to our chosen video. These are:

- Gold; Spandau Ballet: due to similarities in lyrics and the notion of "you can achieve".
- Proud; Heather Small: sports theme and Olympics link.
- Eye of the tiger; Survivor: sporting link through 'Rocky', and a similar message within its lyrics.

In order to go ahead with the recreation of The Scripts, 'Hall of Fame', we need conformation from their record label, 'Epic Records'; AKA Sony records.

Thankfully, after getting in touch via email, they confirmed that we could recreate the video for coursework purposes, as shown below...
