Kasabian- Underdog• Intended Length – 3 minutes• Genre- Rock/Indie Rock
The Sound Style• We chose this particular song because there is one lead singer and because Ryan and Laurence don’t want to be in the music video it is ideal as I can do all the lip syncing. The lyrics link to a story and we want to be able to have a narrative structure that can link to the lyrics.• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw09tAcNB0Q - This is a link to the original music video.
Mise En Scene• Costume- At the moment we haven’t currently got a certain costume that the main person will wear, just to dress appropriately to the genre, so nothing overly colourful.• Lighting- The lighting will be mainly natural other than the poker scene or the scene where I am entering the clubhouse where we might have to use a torch or a car light.• Props- I think that minimal props are needed other than cards, poker chips and the briefcase and the items in the cupboard to use for our flashbacks.• Setting- The locations that are set are the snooker room at Whitehill Golf and the train.
Genre and Stylistic Influences• The genre of the song is indie rock. We chose this because we all like this kind of music.• Some influences have been Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys.
Intended Audience• The intended audience of this is probably dominantly male teenagers who enjoy rock music. Also because of the storyline people who gamble can relate to it.
Narrative structure• The narrative for our music video is a man who is down on his luck, not much money and makes his way to a big poker game in hope of winning. He arrives at the game and it is very tense and he wins.
Ancillary Tasks• Our ancillary tasks are to make a webpage and a magazine advert for our band. When we do this we will split the responsibilities, Ryan will do the webpage and I will do the magazine.
Job Roles• Me, Ryan and Laurence all have different roles in this production. I am the person from our group who will be in front of the camera, Ryan and Laurence will share the camera-work and we will all edit together.
