What genre of music do you prefer to listen to? There was a selection of different genres of music people preferred, the most popular result was indie and then pop. To begin withI choseto do a pop music video for my music video, this is due to me preferring a pop love song as my ideas for my video footage suits a pop song instead of an indie song. However I later changed to a more indie genre, this is due to I did not want my music video to be like ‘everybody else’s’. I wanted more of an upbeat song that people will enjoy, as I believe these songs are more successful.

There were a variety of places to film a music video, the most unpopular place was a graveyard, I think a graveyard suits a horror genre rather than a music video, the city centre is a good place however is very busy so could be difficult to film, the most popular result was Lilfod woods, this is a quiet and good place to film because of the scenery. I will also use my college as it fits with the genre.
What is your ideal story line for a song? Love, Friendship, Breakup are the main representatives of a song. Love is the most popular and I believe it could have many stories and ideas to film.

What do you think the most important part of a music video is ? There are many different parts that make a successful music video. My audience believe the most important is the location and song. Due to this, I am careful to pick the right location, and I have changed my song to something that was quite slow and all about love o something more of a beat with a twist to the usual love song. This I believe will make my video more successful.

Therefore I have a song that could relate to 2 different perspectives. Those going through an illness and those caring for someone and love them that it puts them in pain. Furthermore, it has the genre of love which the majority of people in the world will relate to at some point in their life.
