  • 1. Conor Maynard’s ‘Cant sat No’ Technical Analysis
  • 2. Brief of overall video ‘Cant say No’ was Conor Maynard’s debut album, this meant that the producers of the accompanying music video were showcasing him and building the publics initial thoughts of him as a new artist. Due to this they used one of the 6 points in Andrew Goodwin’s theory, to use a lot of close-ups of the vocalist, in this case Conor. Within the video there are a total of 5 scenes each made up of both performance shots and cutaways. They are; •  The bedroom •  The street •  The park •  The party •  The CGI wall
  • 3. Scene One The Bedroom The  first  shot  is  a  close  up  of  the  back  of  his  head.   The  next  is  of  Conor’s  eyes  which  is  an  extreme  close  up.   The  next  shot  is  a  close  up  again  however  this  >me  it  is  a  side  shot   clearly  showing  the  audience  his  face  which  is  the  first  >me  we  are   able  to  see  him  fully.   We  then  have  another  extreme  close  but  of  his  mouth  this  >me.   From  this  we  have  now  seen  all  his  features  and  will  be  able  to   recognize  him  throughout  the  rest  of  the  video  as  most  of  the   audience  will  not  have  seen  him  before  as  this  is  his  debut.     ACer  all  the  con>nuous  shots  of  Conor’s  face  we  then  get  a  close   up  of  his  feet  which  are  walking  clearly  showing  the  viewer  that  we   will  be  moving  onto  the  next  shot.      
  • 4. Scene Two The Street The  first  shot  in  this  scene  is  yet  again  Conor  but  a  mid  shot  and   unlike  the  first  scene  there  is  a  stronger  rela>onship  between  the   music  and  the  visuals  as  he  is  dancing,  despite  it  being  simplis>c,  in   >me  with  the  music  (a  point  taken  from  Goodwin’s  theory).     This  is  very  similar  to  the  shot  before  however  the  camera  has   moved  180  degrees.   This  is  yet  another  close  up  shot  of  Conor’s  face  but  at  90  degree   angle.  Despite  there  being  a  lot  of  similar  shots  the  edi>ng  has  a   strong  rela>onship  (Goodwin’s  theory)  meaning  it  is  quick  so  the   viewer  does  not  get  bored.   In  this  shot  it  is  a  long  blurred  shot  of  corner  however  you  are  able   to  see  clearly  the  wall  and  the  website  which  again  links  back  to   Goodwin’s  theory  of  music  videos  promo>ng  and  show  casing  the   vocalist.  
  • 5. Scene Three The Park This  is  a  simple  introductory  mid  shot  to  the  new  scene  showing  a   group  of  people  that  Conor  soon  becomes  a  part  of.  It  is  shot  using   a  dolly  and  pivots  as  the  girl  walk  around  the  corner.   The  next  shot  within  this  scene  is  a  mid  shot  and  shows  clearly   Conor  with  a  large  group  of  friends  all  following  him  which  links  to   Hegemony,  which  is  the  idea  of  a  pop  star  follows  the  dominant   cultural  values,  beliefs  and  expecta>ons,  which  in  this  case  is  that  a   good  looking  teenager  has  a  lot  of  friends  and  due  to  being  male  is   the  ‘leader  of  the  pack’   A  long  shot  from  behind  showing  Conor  and  his  friends  on  there   way  to  something.   A  cut  away  but  s>ll  within  the  same  scene.  Due  to  the  ligh>ng  the   shot  has  a  roman>c  feel  en>cing  the  female  viewers  to  con>nue   watching  the  rest  of  the  video.  
  • 6. Scene Four The Party- Performance Shots The  first  shot  introduces  the  audience  to  the  next  scene  with  an  over  the   should  shot.   This  mid  shot  caught  from  behind  shows  Conor  dancing  with  an  aQrac>ve   girl  in  a  seduc>ve  manor  this  follows  the  conven>ons  of  Pop  songs  sung   by  males,  as  it  perceives  them  to  be  ‘a  ladies  man’.   This  is  yet  another  mid  shot  show  Conor  so  the  viewers  will  easily  be  able   to  dis>nguish  and  recognize  his  face  when  it  comes  to  releasing  his  next   song.   The  next  hot  is  a  long  shot  of  Conor  at  the  party,  showing  him  in  a   social  light,  in  which  many  teens  are  associated  as  being  like   giving  them  something  to  connect  and  relate  with.   The  final  shot  within  this  scene  is  a  close  up  of  just  his  face.  
  • 7. Scene Four The Party- Cutaways Elevated  mid  shot.   Within  all  of  these  shot  Conor  is   not  in  any  of  them,  this  means   they  are  are  cutaways.  Due  to  the   use  of  these  it  ensures  the  viewer   Elevated  long  shot.   does  not  get  bored  of  con>nuous   use  of  similar  shots.     Two  close  ups  of  two  aQrac>ve  girls  dancing.   Close  up  of  a  boy  skateboarding.  
  • 8. Scene Five The CGI wall Within  this  mid  shot  Conor  is  slightly  obscured  by  those   around  him  due  to  the  framing  however  because  of  this   it  make  the  viewer  feel  more  involved  and  gives  them  a   sense  of  actually  being  within  the  shot.   This  is  again  a  mid  shot  but  from  the  side  angle  this  >me.   This  is  a  very  simple  mid  shot  clearly  showing  the  wall   behind  and  the  CGI  on  it,  giving  the  viewer  something  new   to  look  at  and  thus  keeping  them  entertained.
