Influences and intentions

  1. 1. + Influences and Intentions When I looked at the lyrics of the song, and listened to it a few times, I felt it needed a calm video, and I was reminded of Gabrielle Aplin’s ‘Home’ video, and could imagine a similar, narrative-light journey fitting with the style of music here.
  2. 2. + Influences and Intentions When looking at ‘Ho Hey’ and ‘Little Lion Man’, I was reminded of the mentions of light/dark in the song’s lyrics, and particularly liked the stark locations and use of minimal lighting. This influenced me into thinking something similar could be used in my music video – something simple and minimal to match the simple lyrics and light tone.
  3. 3. + Influences and Intentions The countryside/journey idea really appealed to me from numerous videos, as it fits the genre of my song. I especially admired the shots where the sun shone onto the camera and created a warm, soft glow. However, it seemed initially to be too difficult to combine with the sophisticated look of the Mumford & Sons and Lumineers’ videos.
  4. 4. + Influences and Intentions Re-listening to the track helped to piece together the concept for the music video and refine how I thought about it, as I realised the titular ‘Silver Light’ could be a character or a metaphor that leads the singer out of the dark, shadowy and bare location seen in ½ of my research, out into the bright natural landscape seen in the other 1/2
  5. 5. + Influences and Intentions Other influences were random shots, usually showing things from different, more unusual angles, such as through shadows, blurred shots and mirrors. These make for more interesting videos that are more varied and unique, and I’d like to try the same technique of looking at things differently in my video – such as rarely shooting the singer’s face initially, but only showing partial or obscured views, silhouettes or shadows that create mystery before the reveal.
