A shot that shows a link between lyrics and/or music and visuals.
This image relates well with the lyrics of the starting of the songs as she portrays herself to be only liked by teachers and disliked by her peers. This is clearly shown through the use of a close up shot of her hand writing on her school note pad ‘Mr.Walcott <3 Riham’ which connotes the lyrics that are currently being said in the song.
A shot that typifies the way a record company would want their artist to be represented.
This image reflects the way her record label would want their artist to be portrayed. The ways in which this show presents this is by the props, costume and body language of Lola. The positioning of the band clearly declare who is the protagonist, this is shown through her singing and the continuous close ups of her. This is an eye catching representation as it displays her out of the storyline and just as an artist which is effective for the audience.
A shot that demonstrates your use of Mise-en-Scene.
This image clearly shows the representation of a ‘normal’ girl’s bedroom from the colour of her bedroom to the possessions that she has on her walls. The effectiveness of having the mirror as a prop in her bedroom interlinks with our storyline as well as making the location look realistic. It identifies what the protagonist of our storyline does when she’s isolated and alone, which works well with the story we are trying to expose.
44208701014095The long shot used for our forest scene is the most effective shot used in the entire music video. The location is very effective as it comes across to be isolated and secluded. In addition to creating a successful shot, the positioning of the camera was crucial as we wanted to display all the finer details in the shot to the audience, from the two characters, the locations as well as the natural lighting.
This shot reflects the intertextual reference of ‘Kelis’ (the signer), her behaviour in her music video’s gave us inspiration to make Lola’s behaviour similar to her’s, as she expresses herself very well through the storylines of her music video’s.
A shot that illustrates how your video uses music genre.
This image used illustrates our genre through props and instruments. As you can see she is using an electric guitar which immediately gives away apart of our genre identification as it is one of the rock conventions. As mainly rock music use electric guitar for guitar solos in the songs. Another aspect of the image that gives away the genre is the bracelets worn by Lola portrays the edgy and punky look that Lola carries.
A shot that demonstrates your use of lighting.
This shot displays our clever use of lighting as it spotlights out artist and none of the surroundings. The image shown indicates a spotlight co operated with a red gel inputted to create a red glow on Lola which was a different idea that we had, rather than using the original lighting. The lighting displays Lola to be the key character in the entire scene.
Two shots which you feel demonstrate something which shows you have watched other music videos.
This image shown is the introduction to our music video, something that I have taken from another music video is the text appearing at the beginning of a music video, to show the audience, some of the key information about the video.
This image of a split screen has been presented in several music videos’ I have seen, therefore I thought it would be effective to use this in my music video. This split screen is effective as it shows the comparison of the two personalities in the music video storyline.
A shot that shows a link between lyrics and/or music and visuals.This shot of Labyrinth taken from his video ‘Let the Sun Shine’ represents the visuals and lyrics of the song, as it emphasises the title, through the use of a mid shot of Labyrinth with the sun coming through. The image represents him hoping for sun in the rain, which links in with the title ‘Let the Sun Shine’. The shot is constructed well as it cleverly blurs out the background to enhance the lighting and focus of the rain and the sun coming through. -502285-447040
A shot that demonstrates your use of camera.This shot screen grabbed from the video ‘Viva La Vida’ by Coldplay exhibit the use of camera from a high angled shot portrays the lead singer to be inferior. In addition, the use of this shot reveals his facial expressions much clearer as well as his movement as we can see the majority of his body. -33877255481955A shot that demonstrates your use of Mise-en-Scene.This shot taken from the video ‘Shut Up’ by Black Eyed Peas displays the music video being a show to another audience. The shot contains a variety of props that are positioned to emphasise the cinema like feel to the scene. An example is the set that was created to host the music video; it is created to look realistic. In addition the audience watching ahead signifies who the main protagonists are in the frame. -34093153026410-3409315485140A shot that typifies the way a record company would want their artist to be represented.This shot of Britney Spears in her video ‘I Love Rock n’ Roll’ clearly represents how her record company wants her to be portrayed to the audience. This is shown through her costume being leather pants and a lather v neck cut crop top, both are fitted to insinuate her figure. In addition her body language in the video is quiet wild and crazy which may show what kind of artist she is. Personally, I think her record label has set her to a sexual image in the music industry and they feel that appearance is a major factor in her life.
A shot that shows an intertextual reference.This close up shot of the band KISSKISS detail their painted face which are symbolism of their band which is also the intertextual reference to the music video Chemical Brothers ‘Galvanzie’. They are both similar as they like to expression themselves through a hidden identity behind the face paint in their videos.-502285-819150675005330200
A shot that illustrates how your video uses music genre.This shot taken from the video by Matt Cardle ‘When We Collide’ exemplifies Matt to be a contemporary artist due to the smart clothes that he is wearing. However, the use of the guitar leads us towards thinking of him as a ballad singing as throughout the video he beautifully create vocal music co operating his guitar with the rhythm. With his look and his guitar and the pace of the music the audience would easily be able to declare what genre the music is.
A shot that demonstrates your use of lighting.This image used from the video ‘Ignorance’ by Paramore. The use of lighting is very important in this scene as it creates a mysterious and smoky atmosphere to the stage which is very effective especially in portraying the genre of the band. The distant lighting used created an airy glow on the outskirt of the artists figure which link in with the whole effect of the song, with the artist using little lighting throughout the whole video.

A shot that demonstrates your use of camera work.The use of camera work in this shot from ‘I Got A Feeling’ by Black Eyed Peas is very carefully filmed as it moves from rapid cuts to a much slower shot which create an illusion to the audience. The camera work on this shot cleverly slows down the motion of the image to only freeze one person whilst the rest of the background is in normal motion, which is a good performance effect to include.
