Question 1 - Media
By Kemal Kargin
In what ways does your
media product use, develop
or challenge forms and
conventions of real media
products?
My media A2 coursework will consist of me creating a conventional music video which is to be
targeted towards an audience of a particular genre. In order for this to be successful we had to
carry out tasks that would enable us to accomplish our end product. Examples of these are to
look at existing music video’s that are already successful, and compare the factors that make
them successful by merging them with our ideas. From this it allows us to view different
ideologies, genres and styles and also gave us ideas to use within our own music video. We used
these ideas for our advert, digipak and the final production (both editing and filming).
When a song is produced and distributed a visualisation of the views and ideologies behind the
song is often supported and shown to the audience. A music video is essentially a video
accompanied by music that an artist has put together and promoted. A music video can be used
to promote the artists views, fashion sense or maybe to even promote a reinvention of the artist.
Mainly it is to show the audience what kind of lifestyle the artist lives or what life situations they
go through. It is a reflection of the artists problems and achievements. No matter what the
artists is trying to portray the music video will either be; Narrative, Performance or concept
based music video. These are the key ways to create an impact on the audience
Does my product develop or challenge forms
and conventions of real media products?
The conventions of real media products inspire my product in many ways. My video follows
the performance and narrative based idea. From my research I found out that these are the
most enjoyable and effective types of music video. This is why I have decided to use both. I
have come to the conclusion that it would be best to stay with what the audience prefer and
what they would expect to ensure that I extract as much emotion from the audience as
possible, so that the impact on the audience is high. Also this allows the audience to relate
to the music video through its structure and ideologies. Here are some examples of
conventional music elements which I also illustrated in my work.
• Low key lighting will be used so the audience can understand the tension between
characters., as well as creating a change in atmosphere through out the video
• Conventional cinematography such as close-ups will be used to ensure that the audience
will focus on what iconography or expressions we want them to focus on
• Editing will match the pace of the song, this allows the audience to follow what is
happening smoothly
• The costume will create a star image for the artist and make the audience want to buy
into the artists lifestyle. Also costume reflects the views of the artist, this in turn can
allow the audience to build a better relationship with the artist.
Music videos are created for entertainment purposes, music videos are targeted towards
audiences in order for artists to create a relationship with them. Artists uses micro
elements in various ways in order to do so.
Music video’s have many other purposes and motives. This is also based on the artists
views and ideologies, and how they portray this in there music video. However, a music
video’s most traditional use is to make sure that the song is understood better. This will
also offer the audience a visual concept to an artists music and lyrics. This in turn is more
likely to appeal to large to a large audience, as those who listen to a song are more likely
to watch the video, especially if they like it. The research that I carried out enabled me to
understand the micro elements used in music videos and ancillary texts.
Cinematography.
Cinematography is one of the elements that are within a visual product. This element
determines what the audience see , this in turn means that effective cinematography can
determine the success of a product. A specific portrayal of the artist is made with
cinematography and thus increasing a relationship with the audience. Cinematography is a
way for the audience to engage with the audience. Cinematography consists of different
camera angles and different camera movements.
The research I carried out showed me that cinematography styles such as close-ups are
conventional in making a deeper relationship with the artist.
These are examples of cinematography:
My music video consisted of conventional cinematography, this in turn meant that I
followed the theories of Andrew Goodwin and Richard Dyer. This helped me to appeal to
my target audience. Goodwin had already stated that a successful use of micro elements
must be used in order to create a conventional video. These long shots were used to
create a better understanding of the artists lifestyle this in turn that more of the artists
costume could be seen as well as the body language and facial expressions. Mid shots
were also used to ensure the main focus was what was on screen. An example of this is
when there are 2 artists on screen and on of them is in the distance. This shows that the
mid shot is the main focus. Also the intertwines with Richard Dyers star theory as they
represent the artists talent. Also this will mean that the audience will want to buy into
the artists lifestyle as they can visualise more of there lifestyle.
Cinematography: camera movements
Different camera movements are used within a music video in order to create a
relationship with the audience. Camera movements can be used to create different
effects. A combination of different camera movements can depict and represent different
scenes within a music video. Camera movements have to ensure that the artists and
characters are followed and shown correctly to the audience. Effective camera
movements will ensure that the video runs smoothly. Movements such as panning shots
have been used to show the characters and the setting. A panning shot ensures more of
the location or scene is shown to the audience. Another camera movement that has
been used is zoom as this shows the audience what is either matching the lyrics on
screen or something that has been zoomed into for the audience to focus on to build a
better relationship from.
Mise en Scene:
•Lighting & Colour
•Costume, hair & make-up
•Iconography and setting
•Positioning
•Body language and facial expression
Mise en scene
Mise en scene is one of the most important aspects to consider when creating a media
production. The Mise en scene is what makes every production unique , it is an important
factor as this is what represents the artist and all of his ideas and views. Mise en scene
should make elements easily identifiable and this should enable the audience to
immediately know what genre it is. Richard dyer theory of star image can be brought into
this as this can be related to the costume the artist is wearing. As star theory is a major
element within music video‘s, this enables the audience to be like what they can see on
screen, ensuring that the artist look attractive in the public eye is important. Fashion
trends are a big thing in today’s society so ensuring that we are attracted to the clothes
they are wearing means that a large market is open to the target audience. Goodwin’s
theory is evident here as within my music video the artists are dressed attractively. This
representation is similar to Usher within his own music video’s .
Body language and Facial expression
Body language and facial expression is important as it indicates to the audience how
someone is feeling and gives a clear understanding of what is going on. Facial expression
and body language was a key element to consider in my music video as they’re was no
additional character sound.

Evaluation question 1

  • 1. Question 1 - Media By Kemal Kargin
  • 2. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  • 3. My media A2 coursework will consist of me creating a conventional music video which is to be targeted towards an audience of a particular genre. In order for this to be successful we had to carry out tasks that would enable us to accomplish our end product. Examples of these are to look at existing music video’s that are already successful, and compare the factors that make them successful by merging them with our ideas. From this it allows us to view different ideologies, genres and styles and also gave us ideas to use within our own music video. We used these ideas for our advert, digipak and the final production (both editing and filming). When a song is produced and distributed a visualisation of the views and ideologies behind the song is often supported and shown to the audience. A music video is essentially a video accompanied by music that an artist has put together and promoted. A music video can be used to promote the artists views, fashion sense or maybe to even promote a reinvention of the artist. Mainly it is to show the audience what kind of lifestyle the artist lives or what life situations they go through. It is a reflection of the artists problems and achievements. No matter what the artists is trying to portray the music video will either be; Narrative, Performance or concept based music video. These are the key ways to create an impact on the audience
  • 4. Does my product develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? The conventions of real media products inspire my product in many ways. My video follows the performance and narrative based idea. From my research I found out that these are the most enjoyable and effective types of music video. This is why I have decided to use both. I have come to the conclusion that it would be best to stay with what the audience prefer and what they would expect to ensure that I extract as much emotion from the audience as possible, so that the impact on the audience is high. Also this allows the audience to relate to the music video through its structure and ideologies. Here are some examples of conventional music elements which I also illustrated in my work. • Low key lighting will be used so the audience can understand the tension between characters., as well as creating a change in atmosphere through out the video • Conventional cinematography such as close-ups will be used to ensure that the audience will focus on what iconography or expressions we want them to focus on • Editing will match the pace of the song, this allows the audience to follow what is happening smoothly • The costume will create a star image for the artist and make the audience want to buy into the artists lifestyle. Also costume reflects the views of the artist, this in turn can allow the audience to build a better relationship with the artist.
  • 5. Music videos are created for entertainment purposes, music videos are targeted towards audiences in order for artists to create a relationship with them. Artists uses micro elements in various ways in order to do so. Music video’s have many other purposes and motives. This is also based on the artists views and ideologies, and how they portray this in there music video. However, a music video’s most traditional use is to make sure that the song is understood better. This will also offer the audience a visual concept to an artists music and lyrics. This in turn is more likely to appeal to large to a large audience, as those who listen to a song are more likely to watch the video, especially if they like it. The research that I carried out enabled me to understand the micro elements used in music videos and ancillary texts.
  • 6. Cinematography. Cinematography is one of the elements that are within a visual product. This element determines what the audience see , this in turn means that effective cinematography can determine the success of a product. A specific portrayal of the artist is made with cinematography and thus increasing a relationship with the audience. Cinematography is a way for the audience to engage with the audience. Cinematography consists of different camera angles and different camera movements. The research I carried out showed me that cinematography styles such as close-ups are conventional in making a deeper relationship with the artist. These are examples of cinematography:
  • 7. My music video consisted of conventional cinematography, this in turn meant that I followed the theories of Andrew Goodwin and Richard Dyer. This helped me to appeal to my target audience. Goodwin had already stated that a successful use of micro elements must be used in order to create a conventional video. These long shots were used to create a better understanding of the artists lifestyle this in turn that more of the artists costume could be seen as well as the body language and facial expressions. Mid shots were also used to ensure the main focus was what was on screen. An example of this is when there are 2 artists on screen and on of them is in the distance. This shows that the mid shot is the main focus. Also the intertwines with Richard Dyers star theory as they represent the artists talent. Also this will mean that the audience will want to buy into the artists lifestyle as they can visualise more of there lifestyle.
  • 8. Cinematography: camera movements Different camera movements are used within a music video in order to create a relationship with the audience. Camera movements can be used to create different effects. A combination of different camera movements can depict and represent different scenes within a music video. Camera movements have to ensure that the artists and characters are followed and shown correctly to the audience. Effective camera movements will ensure that the video runs smoothly. Movements such as panning shots have been used to show the characters and the setting. A panning shot ensures more of the location or scene is shown to the audience. Another camera movement that has been used is zoom as this shows the audience what is either matching the lyrics on screen or something that has been zoomed into for the audience to focus on to build a better relationship from.
  • 9. Mise en Scene: •Lighting & Colour •Costume, hair & make-up •Iconography and setting •Positioning •Body language and facial expression Mise en scene Mise en scene is one of the most important aspects to consider when creating a media production. The Mise en scene is what makes every production unique , it is an important factor as this is what represents the artist and all of his ideas and views. Mise en scene should make elements easily identifiable and this should enable the audience to immediately know what genre it is. Richard dyer theory of star image can be brought into this as this can be related to the costume the artist is wearing. As star theory is a major element within music video‘s, this enables the audience to be like what they can see on screen, ensuring that the artist look attractive in the public eye is important. Fashion trends are a big thing in today’s society so ensuring that we are attracted to the clothes they are wearing means that a large market is open to the target audience. Goodwin’s theory is evident here as within my music video the artists are dressed attractively. This representation is similar to Usher within his own music video’s .
  • 10. Body language and Facial expression Body language and facial expression is important as it indicates to the audience how someone is feeling and gives a clear understanding of what is going on. Facial expression and body language was a key element to consider in my music video as they’re was no additional character sound.
