Transcript

  • 1. The Top 10. These are the top ten most watched music videos on Youtube / Vevo.
  • 2. The most watched videos of 2013 on Vevo. • Watch each video in full. • Download each video to your blog and analyse why it has been so successful. • Analyse each video. How does it conform to Goodwin’s categories? • Say at least one positive thing about each video – you don’t have to like the video, singer or song but it has been effective. Why? • If you think the video is popular purely because of the artist/song, think about how the artist/song has been portrayed – mise en scene, close ups etc.
  • 3. Your digipak - preparation • For at least three of the pop videos you analyse download the cover of the CD. • Analyse this cover. • Is it a photograph? Close up? • How is the artist(s) portrayed? ( Remember Dyer’s Star Theory). • What colours are used? Why? Connotation? • Costume? Mise en scene? • Font + position of text – information included on front cover.
  • 4. Name of artist Standing out to grab Attention of audience, It is in bold to highlight Who's album it is. White colour to Create a contrast between Snow I believe purposely directed of the side with night book on to highlight Ludovico Einaudi and to give the impression the trees are still getting covered in snow Name of Album It is important to be able to distinguish differences between different albums. Colour also to be in keeping with white snow below. Black background. Road White Trees Inspiration from this Again creates album came from A powerful contrast travelling, possibly why between the black the road, or to display road and the white the contrast between a Dream Like trees. normal road and snow Einaudi described this album “It’s like a dream— covered trees. anything may happen” and getting his inspiration from night time landscape. Both factors I believe are very dominant in his album artwork.
  • 5. Your digipak • Remember you will be doing a digipak. • For each of these very successful pop videos consider how exactly the ‘star’ is presented and packaged. • You may get some ideas for your own photograph / album cover. • How has Katie Perry been ‘packaged’? • How can we deconstruct her CD cover for “Prism”?
  • 6. 1 3 2
  • 7. Lets remind ourselves ………. • As you analyse the videos you will refer back to the theories of Dyer and Goodwin. • Lets remind ourselves of what they say:
  • 8. Stars As Constructions • Dyer believes artists are constructed through artificial images such as advertising, films, magazines and music. • He claims that consumers prefer artists to convey their true emotions themselves and not be groomed by record labels who try to create a fake image for them. • A “real” artist can use this as their unique selling point.
  • 9. Industry And Audiences • Richard Dyer also believes that stars are manufactured to make money for their record labels by appealing to target audiences. • As a result of this record labels have to market different artists to cater for certain target audiences as there are both niche and whole markets. • Examples of record labels doing this can be seen through Mirror branding, both Rage Against The Machine and Joe McElderry are signed to Sony Music.
  • 10. Ideology And Culture • Another one of Dyers beliefs within his Star Theory is that artists become trendsetters in the sense that audience members will imitate hairstyles and artists clothing styles. • Artists may have certain religious beliefs and cultural values that audiences may also pick up on if shared by the artist. • The internet has meant audiences now have far greater access to the “personal” lives of stars.
  • 11. Character And Personality • Presented as 'real' human beings • Stars support hegemony/dominant ideology of their time/ generation - glorified versions of 'us' • Stars are representations of the contradictions/reinforced ideas of the music industry.
  • 12. Key features • Andrew Goodwin in Dancing in the Distraction Factory (1992) has identified the following features of music videos:
  • 13. Key features • Music videos demonstrate genre characteristics (eg stage performance in metal video, dance routine for boy/girl band). • There is a relationship between lyrics and visuals (either illustrative, amplifying, contradicting). • There is a relationship between music and visuals (either illustrative, amplifying, contradicting). • The demands of the record label will include the need for lots of close-ups of the artist and the artist may develop motifs which recur across their work (a visual style). • There is frequently reference to the notion of looking (screens within screens, telescopes, etc) and particularly voyeuristic treatment of the female body. • There is often intertextual reference (to films, TV programmes, other music videos, etc).
  • 14. Key features • It is also worth considering: • Whether the video is primarily performance-based, narrative-based or concept-based and how elements of each are used in it. • You can use Goodwin’s categories to analyse music videos for yourself.
  • 15. Relation of Visuals to Song Music videos can use a set of images to illustrate the meaning of lyrics & genre, this is the most common This is where the meaning of the song is completely ignored This is similar to repeatability. Meanings and effects are manipulated and constantly shown through the video and drummed into our vision There are three ways in which music videos work to promote a song
  • 16. Narrative & Performance Songs fail to give us the complete narrative! We only tend to get a gist of the meaning of the song and then tend to make up our own idea of what is being told. Goodwin explains that music videos should ignore common narrative. It is important in their role of advertising. Does this happen in these videos?
  • 17. Narrative & Performance Music videos should have coherent repeatability. Narrative and performance work hand in hand. It makes it easier for the audience to watch over and over without losing interest. The artist acting as both narrator & participant helps to increase the authenticity however the lip synch and other mimed actions remains the heart of music videos. The audience need to believe this is real. How effectively is this done in these videos? Be specific.
