Music video narrative analysis

  1. 1. Music video narrative analysis Brief I selected ‘When you’re gone’ byAvrilLavingne to analysis. This music video was made up with 3 different stories and presented in video alternately. Start Piano plays the prelude ,at the same time, an established shot of a big house and a couple standing outside the door is presented. The color of the frame was dark and grey, it hinted that is a sad story. A close up of the man’ s face showed his sadness and a medium close up of the woman showed she was crying . A tilt from woman ‘s face to her belly, it hinted that she had pregnancy .
  2. 2. When the song was started, a medium shot of the couple who were featured showed they were clasping their hands and looking at each other without saying anything.(lyric: And the days feel like years when I'm alone). The lyric said: When you walk away I count the steps that you take, Do you see how much I need you right now? At this moment, An established shot presented the man wearing new army uniform and walking away the house .His wife just still stood there and looked at his back .
  3. 3. A close up of the man’ s leg in slow motion showed he was walking firmly with lots of misses.
