  1. 1. Music Video Script My First Draft Music Video Script By Tom Ross E-mail: 11273664tr@gmail.com Song Name: ‘why do you only call me when you’re high’ Artist: Arctic Monkeys 1
  2. 2. Music Video Script Video Title: VIDEO AUDIO LYRICS / NARRATION / MUSIC / FX 1. 0:00 – 0:30–there will be aextreme close up of a red switch will then move up as if someone will turn on the music, this will last for 4-5 seconds, then go into a wide shot of a band playing the song, but also switching between someone walking up a road this would be a close upof the face. This would last up to 30 seconds. There is a music introduction of 11 seconds. The mirror's image, It tells me it's home time, But I'm not finished, 'Cause you're not by my side. And as I arrived I thought I saw you leaving, Carrying your shoes, Decided that once again I was just dreaming, Of bumping into you. There is a man and he is wondering how to get home, as he has forgotten where he is after a wild night out. 2
  3. 3. Music Video Script VIDEO AUDIO LYRICS / NARRATION / MUSIC / FX 2. 0:30 – 1:00 – then there will be a wide shot of the town center this would last for about 10 seconds, there will be an effect which is where the it will spin in a 360rotation and the background has a blurred trail but the person in the shot doesn’t. After this it will go to another wide shot of the band but a wave effect will be imported in aftereffects which creates the impression of a high/ stoned effect. Now it's three in the morning, And I'm trying to change your mind, Left you multiple missed calls And to my message you reply. Why'd you only call me when you're high? Hi Why'd you only call me when you're high? Somewhere darker, Talking the same shite I need a partner, Well are you out tonight? There are many different flashbacks showing what the man had done during his night out. 3
  4. 4. Music Video Script VIDEO AUDIO LYRICS / NARRATION / MUSIC / FX 3. 1:00 – 1:30 –I will then have a shot the Band in a recording studio, this will be a mid-shot ofthe window and you would see them through the glass and then it would have gradual blurry feel to it on the lyrics, ‘why do you only call me when you high’. This would last the 20 seconds, then kit would flick to a wide shot of a man walking through a door way into the recording studio. This would create the effect of a flashback towards the end where the drummer comes in and they playing the song live. It's harder and harder to get you to listen, More I get through the gears, incapable of making alright decisions, and having bad ideas. Now it's three in the morning, And I'm trying to change your mind, Left you multiple missed calls And to my message you reply. (Message you reply) Why'd you only call me when you're high? (Why'd you only call me when you're) There is a gap of 8 seconds where the music plays then the lyrics come in. The man sits in a recording studio with his band and starts writing a song, or playing music. 4
  5. 5. Music Video Script VIDEO AUDIO LYRICS / NARRATION / MUSIC / FX 4. 1:30 – 2:00 –I would then like the slow motion effect on a wide shot and It would be a black and whitecolor image and this would last for about 15 seconds, then it would change to a close up of all the instruments individually and this would last for another 15 seconds. Hi Why'd you only call me when you're high? And I can't see you here when I'm high, Sort of feels like I'm running out of time, I haven't found all I was hoping to find, You said you got to be up in the morning, The band are playing there song on stage and it is also flashbacking on how they got there and how the man got home from his night out. 5. 2:00 – 2:30–There would be a Wide shot of the band playing the song for 30 seconds this would end the song , there will also be individual close up of each band members face playing the song. Gonna have an early night, And you starting to bore me, baby, Why'd you only call me when you're high? There are allot of people that have turned up to see the band and they are all going mad and partying. Then the man gets home and sees his house. There is a 5 second instrumental. 5
  6. 6. Music Video Script VIDEO AUDIO LYRICS / NARRATION / MUSIC / FX 6. 2:30 – 3:00 –It would then flick to a close up of the red switch from the start then it would slowly be pulled down and then he music would fade out. Why'd you only ever call me when you're high? Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high? (x3) This is all instrumental for 28 seconds. 6
