  1. 1. Silhouettes
  2. 2. The Initial Idea The track we have decided to create a video to is Cassie “I Know U Want” and the lyrics are extremely sexual therefore we require a sexy video without being too explicit. A silhouette allows the performer to create seductive shadows and outlines of the female body without the video being inappropriate. We believe this idea will be effective while also containing connotations relating to our hip-hop genre.
  3. 3. This idea would require the performer to move and dance slowly and subtly seductively creating shadows containing high levels of sex appeal appropriate to the song choice. This may include side shots of the female, long shots and closeups of parts of the body to intrigue the audience; to keep their interest and eyes on the performer as not being able to see the female’s facial expressions and details creates a sense of mystery.
  4. 4. Types of Shots We require to produce various amounts of shots with the performer in different positions and angles in order to keep the audience entertained and create opportunities for editing. The silhouette scene will be shown in aspects throughout the video as well as another scene to keep the audience’s attention and to make the video more thrilling and enjoyable. Shots we will include will be side view shots, medium and close-ups of the body, shots of the performer on the ground on hands and knees, standing shots creating a seductive pose and so on.
  5. 5. Here are a few shots we may include within the video.
  6. 6. Smoke & Silhouette We have an idea of creating smoke around the performer in the silhouette scenes within the video which will create a really nice effect while also creating connotations of the genre. Smoke is often associated with the hip-hop and rap genre and we think this is a good way of incorporating it within the video.
  7. 7. Hair Within the silhouette scenes, we also have another idea which is to create a wind effect with the use of a fan which will subtly blow the hair of the performer and create a unique and effective affect against the spotlight background. It will also connote the female’s sex appeal and the silhouette of the hair blowing will compliment her. The subtle wind affect also fits well with the slow and steady pace of the song.
  8. 8. Gun Idea We have an idea for the performer to be holding a gun which contains strong connotations of the hip-hop/rap genre as artists can often be seen and recognised as being aggressive and violent. Therefore, this idea fits well with our chosen genre and also creates a very nice effect against the silhouette creating the appearance of the gun very clear and apparent. It is also appropriate as we have come up with ideas for the digipak for the artist to have a gun.
