A2 MEDIA MUSIC VIDEO
My A2 music video recognises the ideology in the teenage society when
romantic feelings are introduced. The video is a split between reality and
imagination, imagination of the love interest when in reality he doesn’t
know who she is. Once the narrative develops the dream in the
imagination becomes the reality and the love interest shows his feelings
also. This is shown predominantly through the colour schemes of the

I feel that my ancillary is the strongest part of my A2 media promotional package due
to that being in my comfort zone. I am a graphic design and photography student as
well as media which I play to my strengths. Having the advantage of being able to
recognise the technical aspects of art based media I felt I wanted to express this and
the things I love best all at the same time. This is when I came up with the idea to
draw and use photography to create a final piece for my media product.
I used Photoshop CS6, Adobe Fireworks as well as Canon DSLR 500D and a Canon
Scanner/Printer/Copier to create my final piece.
I wanted to show the feelings that I was representing in my music video, the
imagination of my actress through my ancillary texts also. This was so that I had
continuity and a flow of a theme throughout my media pieces.
Main things I had to consider whilst creating all three products were;
• A colour theme.
• Style of presentation.
• Idea of thought.
• Tracklist to include.
• An artist name and album title.
• What music label I am going to use
for my project.
• That my actress was the main
feature for all my texts, inclusive to
the boy featuring in the video as the
second voice and love interest.
• What types media to use in my
My mise en scene and shots of my
Peer Feedback –
Holly Huzzard – 18 Years of Age
All three products link together
perfectly, by the use of the light
colours, this also reflecting back
to your chosen genre
conventions. All the images used
also have a similar theme to
them allowing you to link the
products together easily.
Luke Berry Dagnal – 18 Years of Age
Poster works well with music video.
The mask in the ancillary text
however I didn’t find a link with the
Jake Stone – 18 Years of Age
They all link with each other via the
use of image, costume and colour
scheme. I also think the mask links to
the narrative in the music video and
this is clear to the audience.
Anonymous Female – 17 Years of Age
The products link well with the music
video as they all feature elements of
the same narrative. The colour
scheme matches and the details of
the drawings relates well to the
