Our style to our video, is going to be related to the indie pop genre and it will link to concerts and festivals such as Woodstock, Reading Festival and Glastonbury. As a group, we want to capture the feel of the 60’s and the hippy stereotype. Our video will appeal to the fun people who attend festivals and concerts. Our influences are from films such as “The Runaways” “The Company of Wolves” and “Almost Famous.” These films relate to the past such as the 60’s and they incorporate the style that we want to use for our video.

Intended Audience Our intended audience, is going to be teenagers between the ages of 16-19. The genre of our song is targeted for festival goers and we would see our music video on the indie pop channel or the indie radio station which is located in London. We want our audience to be gripped by our video and also enjoy it.
The Visual Style Visually, we want our main singer to look like the pictures below. We have incorporated the style of pre-Raphaelite (Victorian) paintings as an example and we want the look of our video to look like this. Costume wise, we took the style of festivals such as Woodstock and clothes worn in the 60’s.
Costumes: For costume, I was thinking Jeans with rips, a dull colour vest or top to create the 60’s and indie feel. I would like flowers in hair and this picture signifies some ideas we could use. Another influence for our costume was a band called Fleetwood Mac.
Sam- I am going to be responsible for the location spotting and help out with the camera work. I am also going to be playing the role of the boyfriend.
Megan-Megan is going to be responsible for the camerawork.
Emily-Is going to be playing the character of the girl.
Conclusion Our Unique Selling Point of our production is that we are going to produce a video which will be very creative and unique. Our skills are going to be demonstrated by improving our editing, camera shots and angles and for me improving mise en scene. We want the video to have the genre of indie pop and be targeted to people who enjoy large festivals.
