A2 pre production media coursework

  1. 1. A2 Media Coursework <br />
  2. 2. Pre – Production <br />
  3. 3. 3 CD Music Analysis <br />
  4. 4. The sky is plain as completely white so its draws the attention to the bottom of the picture and the plane. <br />The colours go together with the artist’s title of the album. <br />Aimed at teen or younger as the writing of the artist and its name. <br />The writing is messy but the artist name stands out as it is in bold but the sub title shows rebellious signs.<br />The plane looks like it is about it hit all the people below as they could be the invaders. <br />
  5. 5. The CD cover is simple and eye catching but it does not appeal to me because I am not a fan of the artist.<br />The image of the face is centred and if you drew a line vertically it would be symmetrical.<br />The image of her face is all that is needed to sell the CD because she is famous as the winner of the ‘X Factor’ which is a popular TV talent contest watched by millions.<br />People who watched the programme would be attracted to the CD because they will recognise Leona Lewis as she is also a icon to younger girls.<br />The title of the album suggests that the songs are likely to be emotional.<br />The colour designer has used black, brown, pink and white. The image they have used is close up photograph of Leona Lewis.<br />
  6. 6. Akon looks relaxed because he has his hand in his pocket, however, he looks slightly out of place because he is wearing a suit which doesn’t look right on a beach<br />Akon is presented as a ‘cool’ character that looks quite important. His ear ring will appeal to young people.<br />It also makes us think of holidays and this idea is reinforced because Akon is wearing sunglasses which have the sun reflected on them.<br />The background image of the sea and the sky helps to create an illusion of freedom. You can associate the sea and the sky with freedom.<br />The colour designer has used blue, black and white. The images used are a picture of Akon, the sky and the sea<br />The title of the album clearly tells you what the songs will be like and the name of the artist is clearly written on the album. The artist’s name is written horizontally and stands out because of the white capital letters against the background. <br />
  7. 7. 3 Music Video Analysis<br />
  8. 8. Foo Fighters – The Pretender <br />This video sends off a strong political vibe to the viewers. This is established by through many technical aspects because it shows the Foo Fighters performing the song in an ice hockey ring. <br />Setting/foreshadow/events. The ice rink is the only location that is shown is this music video. It is a very simple set, featuring the band on one end of it, with a very large solid red screen (Connotations) above and behind them throughout the video. Also opposite the band on the other side of the band is a riot police officer standing behind a black line this may be representing him can’t go over the line as this is as far as he can bend the rules. – Creativity .vs. Authority – Individuals <br />
  9. 9. Foo Fighters – The Pretender <br />Due to the set’s simplicity and general emptiness, we are made to wonder what the massive red screen is doing there, and if it has a purpose. As the video progresses, other similar officers who again stand in line along the black line on the floor facing the band - Individuals looking intimidating, join the single police officer. <br />The video seems to build up to a bridge just before their last chorus, where there is a very quiet and light music part, and the officers then start running and charge at the band in slow motion creating tension, and just as they get closer, the massive screen behind the band suddenly erupts a red water-like liquid jets shoot past and through the band and appears to overwhelm and throw the officers off guard.<br /> The video is composed is made in different camera types such as zooms, tracking shots, and close ups of the front best known man in the bad because he used to play in Nirvana<br />
  10. 10. Jay Z – 99 Problems<br />All of Jay Z albums in which 3 of them are called 99 Problems and his music video was released in 2004. Although Jay-Z is known today as a famous rapper and a producer of Roc-A-Fella record label, he did not start off with the best background, he came from the ‘ghetto’ which he used to live rough and was hard to live up there and then became one of the most well known rappers in the world. His music video portrays the ghetto of Brooklyn, New York in the 1990s and shows the struggles that Jay-Z had to go through during his career in order to reach the top of the music industry.   <br />He is represented from the shots by himself being the main man of the video. Showing he has had problems as he is trying to sort them out and make him a better person. The shots he used were on him and other people but him being the main man. His wardrobe was full of what he use to wear when he was on the streets with Notorious BIG starting up his career and from now to when he is living the high life. <br />
  11. 11. Jay Z – 99 Problems<br />The primary audience for this music video is African American males as it is established because Jay Z was brought up in Brooklyn which is populated by African Americans, this is where he got the ideas from for his songs. The music video shows Jay-Z getting pulled over by a Caucasian policeman for something coming out from a discriminating heart, this is because he got caught speeding at 55 mph in a 54 mph zone. Its stupid because the police wouldn’t of pulled over a Caucasian person over for speeding one mile over the speed limit. It is just because he is from the black community and he is driving around the streets they think he may try and cause trouble. This can also relate to when he was younger living up in the ‘ghetto’ and also how the white and black people didn’t relate much as the whites always caught the blacks. <br />He raps about what has happened and shows that this incident is just one of the many incidents he has had, also his race deal with in his life. Next thing on the news was about how he was accused of stabbing Lance Rivera who was the record executive. This made Jay Z go to court for trial, and the court ruled that Jay Z can bail out for half a million dollars, this left a big impact on his music carer but he got back up on his feet and came out with a top single featuring Alicia keys – empire state of mind which was a major single in and on the number 1 top spot for weeks. <br />The shots used in this video creates tension to the viewers <br />
  12. 12. Kings of Leon – Use Somebody<br />The genre has a strong, hard beat familiar to rock some may include this as indie. At the start there is a spring of music in which you can see many features in the video. The camera shots could be directed differently and also some of the video footage is of the band on tour, as them playing live which shows they play their own music and are different. <br />There are many camera shots of the cities and this is showing that they are on tour and travelling around. Some of the shots were sped up and they used many different types of shots like long shots and bird eye view shots Reasons of effects. There is a shot of an aeroplane at the start of the video which is showing that they are on tour. <br />Most of the shots are short because it is going to and fro to the lead singer. Also the camera shots of the band on tour aren’t long because this can make the audience get to know the band and to become familiar with them so they also do shots of each band member. <br />
  13. 13. Kings of Leon – Use Somebody<br />When the chorus comes on the video goes black and white which can show that their was trouble in the past. The video is showing them in the behind the scenes of the performance like before they go on stage and what they do and mostly having a good laugh but this is just showing the audience that they all have good personalities. Near the end of the video it is all kept black and white because this is footage from concert and showing their past being thought of. <br />There is a shot of the singer in which caught my eye because the singer is kissing the women in which can represent that they need someone or they need to use somebody to love. As the song is ending the shots become even shorter in which can show there is no love for the women. The singer has a close up of him as he lip sinks him singing the verse ‘someone like you’ this can show that he needs love so they portray it with long shots. The lead singer is not singing the actually words he is just lip sinking so this is showing him acting towards the camera and his audience. This is a good video because their is many angles used and some of their footage is from their tour which is good. <br />
  14. 14. Shooting schedule<br />The first 2 scenes (first verse) will be done on the Wednesday. These are the scenes with the members of the band are getting changed. <br />

This consists of dance moves, the band in the shot together but also on their own so they can be seen as individuals as well as in a group. This allows the audience to engage with them in different ways. I will have a lot of shots with one of the characters in front and the rest of the group behind. This is a way that we show there is no one main person in the group unlike Take That and Gary Barlow.<br />Narrative:<br />The establishing shot of this will be of the night after. There will be a series of shots of all four members getting up and other results of the night before. It will then go back to one of the members of the group getting ready for a night out, putting on finishing touches to the outfit and styling hair. Then another shot of a “wild night” will appear on the screen (still in time with the beat) and then back to another band member getting up. This will go on for the other two members of the band and then a montage of shots of the band and other shots until the first verse starts.<br />Then the first verse will come and one member of the group will be alone and lip sync the lyrics.<br />It will then go to the chorus where the group is seen for the first time in the video all together in a long shot walking forwards and then sitting down together on the sofa. Then, in the second part of the chorus they are in a different location and they are again altogether. This time they are crouching on the floor with people behind them dancing then they proceed to stand up on the line “hands high when we flyby”.<br />The second chorus consists of each member of the group in turn standing in front and the three remaining group members behind him dancing. This will happen in turn for each of the group members, in different locations conveying their individuality and the at the chorus again show them together in the back of a 4x4 truck. <br />On the last verse, the group are then seen together the verse in different shots dancing. They will also be in partners together dancing in several different angles. The next chorus and end of the song will then be them all together having a good time joking. <br />

  37. 37. Final Front Cover<br />Blue<br />fly by II<br />
  38. 38. Inside Covers<br />Where the CD goes the name of the band “Blue” will go diagonal from top left to bottom right(as pictured below).<br />BLUE<br />
  39. 39. The other inside cover<br />This was always going to be a simple pattern that also conveys the name of the band with blue curves starting from the top left. This also concentrates the consumer on the name of the band on the other side as this is on a black base and so will be more eye catching.<br />

CD Cover Drafts<br />These CD cover is showing how it is the JLS 4 faces which shows a significance look. <br />They are very well known in the world as they are important to teen viewers as a lot of viewers like their songs. <br />These 2 covers show their faces in different angles just like the JLS covers. Westlife are a older group as they relate to the older generation with their songs are not pop they are chilled in which the older generation would prefer compared to JLS for the younger generation. <br />This album cover is different because they are just starting up and more and more people are beginning to like their music as it suits the younger generation and some songs can relate to the older generation. The cover is of them sitting in the back of a car, looking like they are just about to go out or go to a gig. <br />
