Freedom Secondary Research

  1. 1. Freedom Research into Teen Singers, Pop/Rock Music Videos, Cover Art and Websites.
  2. 2. Freedom – Music Video My initial idea is to create a Pop/Rock Music Video with a CD Cover and a Website for the Artist i am going to be using which is a 14 year old girl who goes by the name of Aimee who has given permission for me to use one of her original songs. The song is called Freedom and the video will represent the name and the lyrics the song has while also being energetic and really fun. Music Video Summer, summery Dress, Bright Freedom Colourful, Bold, Website Powerful, Flowing Bright, Colourful, Story Bold, Graphics, Fonts, Layouts CD Cover Happy, Energetic, Fun, Jumpy Same Theme as Bright, Colourful, Cover Art for the CD Bold, Graphics, Stand Out, Fonts, Info, Media, Videos, Picture’s, Artist Blog, News, name, Song Name Pictures, Etc Same Theme as Website
  3. 3. Institution & Audience • This music video will be distributed digitally on the internet which will be on the Artists Website that I create and on a video site such as YouTube or maybe something similar. • On something like YouTube i can get audience feedback through the use of comments and how people rate the video. This is a popular place for unsigned artists looking for feedback and to get noticed. • The Target Audience for the Music Video is 13 – 24 year old Females who like to watch Online Media and Enjoy the Pop/Rock Genre of Music. • For the actual distribution of the Music if the singer was actually well known I would put it on a CD with the Cover Art and have it distributed in Music Stores and Supermarkets. As this is not possible at the moment I would have to put it available for download on the website.
  4. 4. Research on Teen Music • Pop music oriented toward teenagers has been common since at least the 1940's with the heyday of Frank Sinatra and bobbysoxers. A significant common characteristic of teen- oriented pop has been that it is designed from the top down with a producer or record company executive creating the concept then hiring a performer to carry it out on stage and on record. • The latest teen-oriented pop sees most of the performers either writing the songs themselves or helping to write them. • Teen Pop is a subgenre of pop music that is marketed and oriented toward teenagers and preadolescents. Teen pop covers genres and styles such as pop, dance, R&B, hip-hop and rock.
  5. 5. Unsigned Artists Unsigned artists tend to want to get themselves noticed to get a record deal. To get noticed they often use sites such as MySpace where they can upload their own music and sometimes offer it as a download while also having a profile which promotes the artist. Some artists do acoustic covers on YouTube to get noticed also. Two unsigned artists I know of that now have a record deal from singing covers on YouTube are Savannah Outen and Esmee Denters. Savannah opted for singing covers On the other hand Esmee opted to of very recent Pop/Rock songs and sing some old classics and some got noticed by Disney and now has modern songs. She got noticed by Justin Timberlake and is now signed one of her songs constantly playing to his record company Tennman on Radio Disney and now has a records. She was the first ever singer record deal with Keith Thomas of to be signed straight from a YouTube Levosia Entertainment. Her first star to a Performer on Stage. She is a Big Star in the Netherlands but Music Video if you only knew was Her First Single Outta Here is partly filmed as if she was filming a increasingly Popular in America video for YouTube. Her Debut along with her debut album. album is yet to be released Another singer who has just been signed up is Teenager Kristinia DeBarge who’s First Single Goodbye was a hit in America. She has just been signed to Sodapop Music and Island Records. She first started singing when she was just 3 but didn’t take it seriously until she was 12 years old when she proved to her dad music was what she wanted to do. Her debut album has yet to be Released.
  6. 6. Research on Music Videos After watching a bunch of Pop/Rock music videos (Mostly modern Teen Pop/Rock Music), I have found out that videos with that genre tend to be really energetic videos such as Miley Cyrus – Start All Over which features the artist dancing around the streets with friends and ending with singing into a microphone with an audience of people watching. Below are some screenshots showing scenes from the music video. In this video we see a lot of Mid-Shots so we can see her dancing and having fun, there is also some Close-up’s which show the emotion on her face of happiness and fun. While she is singing we can see a wide angle shot which shows the crowd of her fans enjoying what she's singing.
  7. 7. Another Music Video which follows the general style for most Pop/Rock videos is Demi Lovato’s and Selena Gomez’s Song One And the Same. The Video features the 2 friends jumping around a set singing into microphones most of the time while other times just having fun. The lighting is bright and the costumes worn represent the Pop/Rock style of the music. In this video there is mostly Mid-Shots to show them dancing around and having fun like in the Miley Cyrus Video Start all Over. Again there is a lot of Close-Up’s showing the emotion on their faces which is happiness. Nearly all the time throughout the video they are in a Two Shot which shows how close their relationship is and reflects the song as it is called one and the same which is about two best friends liking different things but been the same and being best friends. Below is some screenshots of the Music Video. As you can see from the screenshots the girls are happy, energetic and having fun which is what I am aiming for with my video.
  8. 8. Research on Websites Most artists have websites to advertise them and let the fans have more than just their music, let the fans find out information on them and also to find pictures and latest news and previews of songs and videos to come from them. Some stars websites even have merchandise shops but I wont be including one of those on my website. I am going to be creating a website for the artist which will feature a bunch of things on like most other artists websites. Most artists websites have the same theme of which their latest Single/ Album art has which changes when they have new cover art. Over on the next page I will have screenshots of a few Artists websites and what they include on them and they the themes they use.
  9. 9. As you can see on Miley Cyrus’s site she has a Yellow, Red and White theme which is the same as her latest Album Breakout. On her site she has A Blog, News, Gallery, Video, Bio, Exclusive, Events, Newsletter, Twitter Updates, Tour Information and music playing on the homepage. From this for my website I will add some of these features such as A Bio, A Gallery, The music video I create, etc On Ashley Tisdale’s site she has the theme Red, Black & White as again this is the theme of her latest album Guilty Pleasure. On her site she has News, Info, Media, Fans, Shop, Boards, Twitter Updates, Music Playing on her homepage and an option to sign up to a newsletter.
  10. 10. Research On Cover Art As well as a Music Video and a Website, I am going to be creating the Cover art for the single or possible album which will stand out and will be bold. The cover art must have the same theme as the Website as my research has shown and must stand out with exciting images and fonts through the use of styles and colours. On the next page I will be researching other Artists Cover art to find out what sort of themes are on a Pop/Rock singers Albums and see what colours they mostly use for that genre. I was also be researching the outfits and costume to see what sort of stuff pop/rock singers wear.
  11. 11. As you can see from the image Jordan McCoy’s Cover art for her single Rockstar shows her tangled in a microphone and striking a pose. The costume she's wearing represents the Rock genre of her music. The theme for this single is Red, Black and White. The font used has a Rockstar theme to it and the red used really makes it stand out. Ashley Tisdale’s Latest single Masquerade has the colour scheme as Pink, Black, White and Green. The costume worn shows a mask which is what represents Masquerade and the words used frame around her so we can see she is the center of attention on the cover which makes her stand out. Demi Lovato’s Latest Single Here We Go Again has the Colour Scheme of White and Pink which is the same theme as her latest album. We can see that she is at some sort of trashed abandoned party. The font used for the cover really stands out because it’s a really curly looking font. The outfit again suggests a Pop/Rock genre kind of look.
  12. 12. Conclusion From my Secondary Research I have found out that the Artists Website and CD Cover Art both have the same theme. From this I will be creating my Website and Cover with the same theme. Also I have noticed that the costume’s used in the picture on the cover art and in the music video has a rock chick look to it with T-Shirts, Waistcoats and Skinny Jeans with a few accessories or a sort of stand out dress with a waistcoat. Most Music videos I have seen the artists tends to have their hair down and flowing so I will be following this Pattern of costume.
