  • 1. Broken By Atoa
    By Jessica, Nicole and Philip
  • 2. Structure and Breakdown
    The genre of our music video is a slow pop song or a ballad. We have chosen this song because we feel it made a good a story line and we had lots of ideas to play with.
    Our video will include a girl in an empty house alone. She is depressed due to her boyfriend being killed in the army. The girl will be walking around the house singing the song. Flashbacks of him and her together happy, ideally in black and white, will also be present in our music video.
  • 3. Lyrics
    This house is cold and empty
    Just a ghost of who I used to be
    I stare at my own reflection
    Wondering if you’d ever recognise me
    Last night I heard you whisper
    Everything is fine ‘cos I am here and I am here
    Last night I saw your shadow
    But when I called your name you dissappeared, you disappeared
    He was gonna say goodnight
    He was gonna stop the world from turning
    He was numb the pain
    Who’s gonna see you in the sky
    Crashing down
    I am looking, I am looking
    Who’s gonna say goodnight
    Who’s gonna stop the world from turning
    Who’s gonna see you in the sky's crashing
    I am broken
    I am broken

  • 5. Conventions
    • Illustration- either a straightforward performance video or a simple narrative video (or mixture of the two) that illustrates the meaning of the lyrics and visualizes the music in a straightforward way. It could be called music video ‘denotation’.
    • 6. Narratives are rarely complex because they need to market or advertise the band/artist and song so must feature ‘repeatability’ In other words the narrative code must be ‘loose’ or simply ‘suggestive’ rather than ‘realistic’ or ‘detailed’. This is because music video audiences need to be able to watch videos repeatedly and a tight realist narrative would prove too boring after the first couple of viewings.
    • Some special effects
    • Usually calm setting, but changes when beat kicks in
    • May be black and white
    • Sometimes has a narrative
    • Close up of artists and characters shown in video
    Snow Patrol Jamie T Kings Of Leon The Fray Dance Music Videos
  • 7. Rescue Me
    Jessica, Nicole and Philip
  • 8. Structure and Breakdown
    Genre – Pop, Dance
    Performance video, perhaps in our school hall. The artists could perform on the stage while lots of school children can be in the audience so it looks like a concert.
    We have chosen this video concept because it fits with the genre of the song. The song is a dance track and in these type of music videos there tends to be performance scene with people dancing, having a good time.

  • 14. Lyrics
    The water's shining
    Rescue me
    The water is freezing
    Rescue me
    I'm caught between, caught between the sun and the sea
    I'm caught between, caught between you and me
    Fell in your name, it will keep me above the water
    Once again
    I rowed to the shore, with the boat and the oar
    Just to see....Rescuing me
    What's happening, happening, happening to me
    I can't get it right, get it right
    This dream

    What's happening, happening, happening to me
    I can't get it right, get it right
    This dream
    … rescue me
