Along with the band performing is usually sequences of footage which can or cannot relate to the song at all. This type of music video relays on the audience focusing only on the band rather than having to follow a story throughout the video.

Examples of performance based videos are shown on the next slide.
  4. 4. Narrative based video A video that consists a story line relating to the lyrics or the genre of the music video is known as a narrative based video. It keeps the audience engaged in the video. This type of video is often used for songs that feature in movies, with scenes from the movie cut into the video. The video will include actors that will tell the story to the audience, but props and locations and mise en scene also help tell the story and have to match the codes and conventions of the genre too. Some examples of narrative based videos are on the upcoming page.
  5. 5. Symbolic video Every genre has certain codes that has to be followed. Symoblic videos are which represents the genre of the song with the help of light, editting, use of motage, etc. This type could be used with another type of music video.
