These are pictures of our artist, Amber Rubarth:
We want the singer that acts in our video to look similar to the real Amber Rubarth.
We want this as we feel this reflects the soul/indie genre the best. We will have
costumes such as;
We think these costumes will be suitable for the singer in our video because they are
quite casual and not too ‘over the top’. The costume goes well with the genre as it
reflects a casual, calm and meaningful or realistic situation. By having casual clothing,
it will force the audience to recognise the importance of the song as it is quite
meaningful, so we thought it would be a good idea for the video, for the costume to
shift the attention off the way the artist looks and onto the actual song.
During the video, we are planning to have a narrative playing as well as having the
artist performing. In the narrative we are planning to have a young girl, looking quite
depressed, taking cocaine etc. These are the costume ideas we have thought of for
The clothing helps to reflect a troubled person as the blacks amplify the feeling of
isolation and suppressed emotion. Also the hair is a major aspect of the costume, as
the hair associated with these type of people show; people deviating from social
norms and trying to be unique and expressing the little emotion they show through
how creative their hair is.
