The music biz analysis

  1. 1. The Music Biz Ashleigh Ravenscroft
  2. 2. The Type Of Documentary This is a mixed documentary because it contains a variety of different content including: a voice over (narrator), interviews and archived/actual footage. Themes The themes of the documentary include: The music business Meat Loaf and his image creation Marketing within the music industry The power of the media
  3. 3. Narrative Structure 'The Music Biz' has a single stranded narrative structure as the documentary only has one story line of which is Meat Loaf. It has a closed narrative structure as the audience are likely to have no unanswered questions. It has a non-linear storyline as the order of the narration isn't told in complete order.
  4. 4. Camera Work Still images are used along with zooms and pans, this is done to emphasise images. A low angle is used when filming Meat Loafs music video, this represents him as being a powerful influence. Close up's of Meat Loafs appearance are used to highlight his dramatic image. Close up's of marketing plans are also used to give a insight towards what they're doing.
  5. 5. ...Camera Work A hand held camera is used to make the audience feel like they are there observing the actual events. The conventional filming of interviews shows the interviewees to be either on the left-hand side or the right-hand side, which was alternated in a medium close up.
  6. 6. Mise-en-scene Chromakey is used frequently throughout the documentary for interviews. All the backgrounds are kept relevant to the topic that is being addressed. The dramatic clothing of Meat Loaf shows connotations of rock and show a contrast to the actual lifestyle appearances. The busy shots highlight the stressful lifestyle of a celebrity.
  7. 7. Sound At the beginning it shows the diegetic sound of fans screaming highlights the fame and popularity. The voice over throughout of a standard English male holds the narrative together, keeping the given opinions slightly sarcastic. The background track was relevant to what they were talking about and tense music builds up tension towards the music chart results.
  8. 8. Editing The cuts between the backstage and the on-stage footage shows the quick pace of the industry. Slow motion of Meat Loaf performing highlights the fact he went from a star bankrupt. A fade between two men talking represents the long lasting opinions and effect of Meat Loaf and his image Montage editing of different promotional images shows the vast popularity and acknowledgement of Meat Loaf. Conventional editing is used during the interviews as the audience don't hear the interviewers questions only the answers.
  9. 9. Archived Material Actual footage of backstage at the Brit Awards 1994. The making of Meat Loaf's music video. Interviews with Village People. Newspaper and Magazine clippings.
  10. 10. Graphics The white standard font, possibly used to stand out, told the audience who was speaking and their relation to the topic/events, dates and places. The red graphic for the background on the title font makes the font and text stand out making it more obvious of the contents of the documentary.
