This is because it allows the fans toconnect with the band they like, therefore in the firstsection it shows all members of the band close up, sothat when the viewer watches the video they areshown the band they like from the offset connectingthem with the song and the music video.
Performance shots are a key code and convention as itallows the viewer to see the band playing the song theyare hearing. This performance shot in my video isimportant as it takes the performance and changes thesetting to something completely unique so the viewerwhen watching the music video is exposed to acomplete new side of the band and the song
My Music video also follows codes and conventions ofnarrative. The narrative is important as it breaks up theperformance shots as well as taking the viewer on ajourney through a story that ties in with the song.

This narrative is also important asit gives the song a meaning and a gravitas
