How and why music videos are still a cultural
statement and relevant in today’s society
Plan
Background research on history of music videos. 

When did it start, what was the first music video?
• Early ear and pre MTV
• 1950s early music clips – first music video was Tony Bennett walking through Hyde Park to the song Stranger in Paradise
• 1965 We Can Work It Out by THE Beatles was considered the first music video on television – They wanted there presence in America with
out being there
• They worked with Michael Lindsay-Hogg to use cinematics to portray the song instead of recording a live performance
• Late 60s more avant garde and underground techniques are being used in music video production
• Late 60s – 70s more experimentation in film as Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and David Bowie started looking at how film and music could work
together and open a door to endless possibilities. David Bowies Ashes to Ashes was the stepping stone to deeper layers of meaning in
music videos
• MTV and the Rise of Directors.
• MTV launched in 1981 with Video Killed the Radio Star
• Was a channel devoted to the art form and made it easier for people to put visuals to a song as they played them 24/7
• 1983 – Thriller by Michael Jackson. John Landis brings back the idea of creating a narrative film with a music video as its central driving
force
• 1922 MTV listed the directors name next to the artists as they had realised it was an auteurs medium as directors took full creative control.
David Fincher started off in Music Video Production
• It gives a new breed of young and talented directors to express their unique vision through the medium as they required very little budget
and crew for the style of videos that were popular then
• The YouTube Ear.
• In the mid 2000s, MTV went away from showing music to air more reality shows, this spawned a myriad of new directors taking to YouTube
• They were very low budget and didn’t conform to the media censorship
• With the explosion in popularity of youtube everyone took to posting there videos on YouTube
“It’s (music videos) an artwork you do because you love it (not to get paid)” [M. Diva, 2019].
Give Understanding to a song
• Music videos give the impression of the song, and many individuals like to perceive what the
artists are thinking of for their songs visuals, ideas about the song and further thought, and so
forth. When we take a watch songs being played with a video we all have different points of view
of the importance, and meaning. Every now and then an artist will create such a video with a lot
of meaning and sometimes it is just them singing with fancy visuals accompanied by them

• Music videos give the impression of the song

• people like to perceive what the artists are thinking of when they watch video, ideas about the
song

• When we listen to songs being played with a video we all have different points of view

MVs to talk about - logic suicide one (deep meaning). Sayonara by Aries (no meaning just visuals).
Ed sheeeran lego house (metaphorical lyrics so the video works well. About a breakup like a lego
house)
Entertain
• Films and videos can entertain people in a number of ways including, the actors
choice and acting, the direction and cinematography, the soundtrack and the
script. When these are combined in a very good way the audience can be so
engaged they don’t think about all the work that goes in. Major productions work
all these aspects into the work to engage the audience with the soundtrack being
the music and the actor being the artist meaning people will watch it just for the
sake that the artist is in it.

• Actors choice - DNA by Kendrick Lemar - Don Cheadle

• Direction and cinematography - Señorita Shawn Mendes - MVA winner

• When they work well nobody thinks about all the work that goes in as it flows
seamlessly
“Even if everything is now digital, who doesn’t want to have more than just the track…I would say the track is the
burger and the music video is the full meal deal with fries and Coke” [S. Cahn, 2016]
Promote an artist image and recreate it
• Establish up and coming artists

• TCrook$ 506 monthly Spotify listeners and 25k views on YouTube. More
plays on YT than Spotify.

• Recreate artists image

• Slipknot - aggressive and intense kids too thought provoking staples of
heavy metal

• Evident through there music videos - Wait and bleed 1990 and then
deivl in I 2015?
	 “In this sense the music video becomes an extension of yourself. Your choice of style, approach and content
will reveal elements of who you are – even things that aren’t clear in your music” [T. Campbell, 2016]
Give fans a little extra
• Give fans a little extra

• Post Malones WOW video is all BTS of his tour 

• Works on everyone as they all have a curiosity into the life of there
favourite artist 

• Might not include??
“It’s not just official music videos. YouTube has interviews and live performances and footage straight from the
band tour bus. Its content you couldn’t find anywhere else.” [Amelia, Unknown]

  • 7. Being the director still a staple of the filmmaking world give new directors a chance to work with professionals and gain that filmmaking knowledge and improve their craft. easier to make 10 music videos to show off your talent than 1 feature/short film that doesn't achieve what a director wants artistically “In the last five years I have constantly seen all the most refreshing and exciting directing talent come out of music videos over other fields” [N. Doff, Unknown].
  • 8. VFX and keeping current changing times in cinema the use of VFX have massively increased from the days of just filming the band such The Beatles to full CG composites With the increased in visual interest it brings in ore viewers which in turn brings more publicity and fame for an artist. Ihe video for Voodoo In My Blood by Massive Attack and Young Father's combines 3D objects that are composed into live-action footage Wide Open by The Chemical Brothers motion tracked a mesh skin onto the actor with blended 3D elements and complex light simulations. It has become a staple in music videos award shows such as the VMAs have started a Best VFX award for the companies that create the best VFX in music videos. Past winners include BUF VFX for their work on ME! By Taylor Swift and Passion Pictures for their work on Feel Good Inc by Gorlliaz. “the result is absolutely spectacular and a testament to the creative possibilities of collaborative projects” [C. Ward, 2016]
