From looking at these results it is easy to see that the majority of people
enjoy comedies and do not all neccessarily think that there is a gap in
the music video market for anything. This is useful to us as we now
know that to appeal to the age group we have sent this questionnaire to
would like to see a teen comedy music video. Also the videos people
generally seemed to like had an influence of sex in them and also had a
story that coincided with the song. This is another thing we can
consider when creating our story board.
Questionnaire 2: selecting the storyline-
Question 1: How old are you?
Question 2: Are you male or female?
Question 3: My partner and I have been discussing three possible storylines
for our music video. please select your favourite and explain why.
Storyline 1 - Attractive main character goes to school and continuously bullies
the other girls, she embarrasses them in public and goes to far when she
kisses another girl's boyfriend. The victims finally fight back and the main
character gets what's coming to her. The band throughout this are present
and act as a narrator to the story.
Storyline 2 - Geeky main character is getting ready for school she gets to
school and you can see that she really likes a boy but its his best friend that
likes her. The boy she likes is oblivious to her feelings, the whole video is
based on her trying to get him to notice her, she realises that she's trying to
hard and that the friend is too stuck up, she ends up liking the original boy
who likes her back.
Storyline 3 - In this storyline the band would be the main charcaters, the
singer would act as the girl who was fickle with her men. This would be more
of the typical man eater story. The main singer would dance and perform in
the band never actually getting with any of the men she flirted with. This story
would end with her being superior to the rest of the men.

From doing these surveys it is easy to see that the first storyline came
on top overall and that it would best suit the age of the audience we are
aiming it at. I also learnt that although they like to watch a good story
they want it to be clear too. We will consider this when creating our
