Beyonce

  1. 1. Best Thing I Never Had - Beyoncé Technical Analysis
  2. 2. • Best Thing I Never Had is made up of 7 main scenes, I have named these the dressing room scene, the sunset scene, the golf course scene, the archway scene, the wedding scene and the video tape scene. • The scenes have all been compiled from a collection of raw footage, from which the best scenes will have been chosen. In order to get such good footage, a large amount of scenes must be shot, often repetitively. • The majority of these shots include Beyoncé, these are called performance shots, however two or three of them show things that aren’t her performing, these are known as cutaways. • The storyline shows Beyonce’s wedding and the storyline for the lyrics is about her being glad she didn’t carry on dating someone. So, the storyline is that she is happier with her new man and is her making the other man jealous.
  3. 3. Dressing Room Scene his scene shows Beyonce getting dressed in her room, dancing around in her underwear and singing to e camera. This scene is a classic case of voyeurism. The room is well lit and uses soft focus on most of e shots. Close up, focus alters from blurred to high definition, camera pans downwards as Beyonce lies down. Mirror shot of Beyonce, the camera is unstable but does not move forwards or pan. Unstable mid shot, slight pan to the right as Beyonce turns around.
  4. 4. Sunset Scene Close up - Camera pans slightly to the left This scene shows Beyonce sitting with the light behind her, however some light is on her so that we can see her and not just a silhouette. Close up - Camera is stationary
  5. 5. Golf Course Scene Low angle mid shot, gives the impression of power and dominance. Wide shot showing Beyonce running into the distance - The camera is stable. Low angle long shot - Camera pans downwards slightly. This scene shows Beyonce in her wedding dress running across a golf course with bright lighting in the shot.
  6. 6. Video Tape Scenes Close up which zooms outwards to a mid shot These scenes are filmed in an old video tape style, they have dark lighting and a poor focus effect to make them look aged. These scenes show Beyonce and her ex boyfriend at a school dance and he keeps flirting with other girls so she gets annoyed and leaves. Long shot - Camera tracks Beyonce and moves forward when she does
  7. 7. Archway Scene Mid shot which slowly pans to the right as Beyonce’s arms move. This scene shows Beyonce dancing in a vine covered archway in her wedding dress. Mid shot - Beyonce moves upwards Camera pans down as Beyonce sits, this is a mid shot.
  8. 8. Wedding Scene Camera pans upwards from the ground, starting from the bottom right hand corner and ending with the larger picture. Close up of Beyonce - Pans downwards This scene shows Beyonce getting married and walking down the aisle to her ceremony.
  9. 9. Scenes Without Beyoncé In Them There are only two noticeable scenes which don’t include Beyonce in them, these show her bridesmaids and the ring being placed onto her finger. The lighting in the latter scene is much more realistic and focuses the attention to the ring. Camera pans downwards as Beyonce looks at her ring, Close up shot of the ring is shown. Mid shot of the bridesmaids - Pans to the left
  10. 10. Scenes Without Beyoncé In Them There are only two noticeable scenes which don’t include Beyonce in them, these show her bridesmaids and the ring being placed onto her finger.
