Overall: - Persuasive. - Informative. - Follows conventions of a magazine advert. How effective is the Music Video? Mise en Scene: - The urban location – street scenes – interesting in terms of being filmed during the day – general public around – looks more natural – fits with narrative – audience able to associate with the storyline more. - The natural location – forest and castle ruins scene – location isolated – not all green colour like expected – the browns and greys make location more interesting – as it’s an isolated location makes it more voyeuristic as if the audience are the only ones watching. Editing: - The shots being cut in time to the beat of the song keeps with the conventions of dance videos – keeps the pace – also when the music beat does slow down it makes more of a point/emphasis and highlights key points in the narrative. - The creation of the dream-world effect with the use of glow and romantic filter as well as the out of focus shots – intrigue the audience – adds more to the location. Camera Shots:
  4. 4. - Variety of camera shots make the music video more interesting – as the shot count is huge – this was necessary to avoid boring the audience. - The use of Dutch angle shots in the dream-world sequence in order to portray a dream or non-reality – keeps the audience engaged – the narrative becomes clearer. Overall: - Unique/ not traditional - Follows conventions of a dance music video. - Follows conventions of a music video.
