-1The song: Let me Hook Up With Your Brother
The artist: Fire Drive Tiger
The story: The song is about a girl who continues to go to parties and gigs
getting with lots of different men. She is never happy with the same man. Until
one night when she goes out she gets followed home by a group of girls who
beat her up. The story is being narrated by the band who can be singing and
playing around her throughout the video.
The target audience: The target audience for our video is teenagers who are
into rock/pop. Some of which may already be fans of Fire Drive Tiger or may

because of the story line and the characters involved.
The genre: The genre of the song is pop/rock and this will be represented in
the video through showing a boy meets girls story with an edgey twist.
Mise-en-scene, shot choices and editing: The video will be set in three
locations, a bedroom, a street and a gig. The main character being the girl
who eventually gets beaten up will be the focus point of the video, however
the band and singer will continuingly be in the background singing her story
and often have whole shots and verse lines to themselves. There will be lots
of mid shots of faces and expressions and close ups of bodies as the main
character gets with the different men. The editing will consist of special effects
as the band sings into the camera about the girl. This will create a divide
between reality and fantasy that the viewer will have to determine.
The overall feel: The video will be controversial and edgey and also slightly
dark and mysterious in places. This is due to the new type of message it will
be portraying. Whereas before ‘man-eaters’ were celebrated, in this video
they are discriminated against. The fact that the audience already know from
the shots at the beginning, the outcome of the girl’s night creates anticipation
and dramatic irony for the viewer. It will make them want to know what
