    • An amplified message throughout the video is the idea of a ‘Love Story’ and this is shown in the narrative of the lyrics shown in the visuals throughout the video in a chronological order, like a story.
  • 4. R elationship Between Music & Visuals
    • The beat of the song is regular throughout the first half of the song and the editing of the video represents this. Shots are long and slow.
    • When the beat changes to a higher tone near the end of the song, the cuts of video become quicker and shorter. Wirth more shots as the pace alters.
  • 5. C lose up / Star Image Motifs
    • There are some close ups of Taylor Swift which show her emotions within the song
    • These close up’s are not used voyeuristically like they are used in other music videos
    • This video relates to other videos by Taylor Swift in the idea that it follows a narrative but the image of the film, set in a period of time and the use of flashbacks does not relate to other videos by Taylor.
  • 6. N otion of Looking
    • Neither the main artist or extras in the video are on sexual display. This suits the period of time in which the video is set
    • There are no references to the idea of ‘looking’ within the video

    • There is also a link to Pride and Prejudice (2005) and the video also features the actress who played Lydia in ‘Pride and Prejudice’ in the background.
  • 8. P erformance/narrative/Concept Based?
    • The video is mainly Narrative-Based – portraying the story written in the lyrics
    • There are no performances of the artist within the video
    • The video is also concept based; Based around the idea of a story like ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’
