I have used these images because I am planning oncreating a rock based music video. A variety of theseimages are different types of rock E.G. soft rock, rap rock heavy metal. Even though they are all different types of rock allthe music videos are done in the same way they’reperformance based videos, so you see the band playingthe instruments and the vocalist singing/screaming.Also the colours are mainly dark and grey scaled.
I have used these images to look at whatcamera angles are used mostly in this genre ofmusic videos. There is a variety of goodexamples of angles in these images. I havelooked into different types of rock; rap rock, heavy metal, pop rock etc…A lot of close ups on the bands instrument, longshots showing the whole band performing andlong shots on the audience/mosh pits. Thesetwo are the main camera angles used in the rockmusic videos (performance based) I have lookedat.
When it comes to clothing in a rock music video they all tend to be dark coloursand simple clothing especially for the lads. Sometimes the woman tend to wearweird, old fashioned dark dresses. I used the images so I know what colour clothingI should mainly use and what sort of clothing I should include when I make my ownmusic video. Looking at the images the women tend to wear dark and oldfashioned dresses/ clothing. The males in the music videos always seem to wearblack and white clothing, but sometimes the vocalist wears something different tothe rest of them.
The setting is important in music videos. I have used these images toget an idea on where to set my music video. These images show thatif a rock music video isnt a live performance they tend to be in a darkplaces. There is a variety of crowded places and empty rooms/spaces.
Props are important in a music video,the bands instruments are included inthe props and since most rock musicare performance based the propswould be important. Most of theaudience would want to see the bandplaying because it is like a liveperformance, even though it isn’t thesame experience. I have used theseimages for the props so I know what Ishould include in my music video andwhat sort of props are included in arock video. Also to see what theaudience would want to see within themusic video.
