How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts? Nathaniel Prince
Artist The band Citizen Cope is much like Coldplay in that terry was the front man and we saw no real need to have all people representing the group terry was best because you can see his personality throughout the poster video and digipacks
Costumes Digipack When choosing costumes we knew we wanted to record the video in suit because of the overall style of the video and how stylistic is was, we then choose to add the hat as it made the character unique, and made he still seem like a rocker. This was given good feedback by our classmates who manage to capture a glimpse of the raw footage and one person said it reminded the of FlavaFlav wear trainer with a tuxedo Print screen from music video Digipack inset poster
Props Throughout the video poster digipack we always had a microphone we always wanted this to be there as we believe that is represented there love for music. We also use headphones in the music video to highlight the musical element of the video. Our group didn’t use to many props as we thought that to many props would distract from the band and the prop would be remember more so then the band and as they are a new band this does pose as a possible threat
Colour Effects Although we changes colour varying from the video to digipacks to poster we did have a common theme of generally one colour except the USA digipack which still does take this into consideration. The lighting played a big part in forming our finished product as it was the lighting that gave us easy photos to work with as you can see th e poster and magazine advert needed very little work to have a very stylish look coherent with our music video Another way that texts link in together is through the use of colour effects all our text have used similar colour schemes so that there is a clear theme throughout.
Body positions/ Images used There are a lot of close up of our main artist in our music so we believe is was only right to have a magazine advert which also was a close up shot as it help our audience to instantly make the link between the video and advert also this was one of the reasons we chose to leave the artist with his hat on.
