We wanted to have spotlights over the artist whilst she
performs to emphasis her and to generate more
attention on the artist. We also thought the spot light will
be good over the artist as the video is meant to be a
promotional video, therefore the audience can focus on
her more clearly.
We decided to have a stool for the artists to sit on whilst she
is playing the guitar and singing the song. We decided to use
a stool instead of a chair as it gives a better effect, as if the
artist was in a bar. We have an image of her having on leg on
the stool, resting the guitar on her leg whilst singing into the
We need a microphone in our video as this is what the artist sings
into. It makes it seem as if she is really performing to an audience,
for example in a bar. We may have an olden microphone as we
simply think it looks better than a normal microphone, however
getting an olden day microphone will be hard to get hold off.

floor with grimy objects (the smashed glass pieces).
We wanted to have cocaine in the video as this is what we
feel the girl in the video is taking and what the song is about.
It is obvious that we cannot use real cocaine in the video so
we thought of using baby powder as a substitute.
We think it would be a good idea to have alcohol
surrounding the girl who is taking cocaine, to show she
is intoxicating herself not only with drugs but with
We thought of having open mascara and maybe nail
varnish over the floor where the actor is to show that it
is in a dirty place.
We thought it would be an effective idea if we have a pair of
scissors or maybe a lighter to burn or cut photographs. These
ruined photographs can be lying next to her; they can
represent something important in the actor’s life which has
now disappeared, causing her to ruin her life with alcohol and
