The basics <ul><li>Gender & age group </li></ul>67% were male, aged 16-18. This was my initial target audience.
What genre of music would you class my music video under? <ul><li>90% of respondents said that the genre of my music video was rock/indie. I am really pleased that I managed to represent the band and their music genre effectively throughout my music video. </li></ul>
Do you think the style of my music video represents the band and their music, well? <ul><li>67% said: Yes, it uses common conventions of music videos of this genre. </li></ul><ul><li>33% said: It uses some common conventions but also challenges them in some ways. </li></ul><ul><li>I am really pleased with the responses I got to this question. I stuck to most of Goodwin’s music video conventions, however, I did try new things to represent the artists alternative personalities and I am glad this was noticed by my audience. </li></ul>
Do you think the editing is effectively used in the music video? <ul><li>100% said yes. :D </li></ul><ul><li>I am so pleased with this response. </li></ul><ul><li>Editing was very difficult and time consuming, and I was worried about experimenting with the film burn effects and levels for the first time… </li></ul>
Does the setting I have used represent the band and their music well? <ul><li>100% said yes :D </li></ul><ul><li>Again, I am very pleased with this response. </li></ul><ul><li>I found it difficult to plan what type of setting to use for my music video. Many indie/rock bands stick to studio/live actions music videos and It was a big risk to experiment with the woodland. </li></ul>
Do you think the band are wearing appropriate clothing? <ul><li>100% said yes :D </li></ul><ul><li>Planning costume for the music video was quite difficult. With pop artists colour is important and the opposite applies to heavy metal/rock. Indie/alternative rock is stuck right in the middle. Choosing neutral colours; blacks and greys was clearly the right choice. </li></ul>
Do you think the camera angles and type of camera shots used are conventional of this genre of music? <ul><li>50%: Yes, the camera shots used in your music video are commonly used in existing music videos. </li></ul><ul><li>50%: Some of the camera shots used are conventional, however you have taken risks with different shots. </li></ul><ul><li>This is great feedback! I wanted the camera shots I used to be conventional of rock/alternative music videos to make it easily recognisable however I still wanted to take risks to represent the alternative side to Across The Board. </li></ul>
Is it important that there is no clear narrative? <ul><li>100% said yes </li></ul><ul><li>I am pleased with this response as I was concerned that not having a clear narrative would effect the overall appeal of my music video. </li></ul>
What is your overall view on my music video, Digipak and magazine advert? Here are some of the responses I collected.. I am quite pleased with the comment that all of my products link well together and I agree I could have taken more of a risk with challenging the conventions.
