  1. 1. Peter Andre - Unconditional<br />
  2. 2. Summary<br />Artist: Peter Andre<br />Track: Unconditional <br />Length: 4minutes, 3seconds<br />Released: November 9th, 2009<br />Label: Conehead<br />Producers': AC Burrell & Kevin McPherson<br />Writers: Peter Andre, K. McPherson, AC Burrell, F. Richard, C. Syndor<br />Genre: Pop, R&B<br />Type: Narrative<br />
  3. 3. Conventions<br /><ul><li>Music video conventions:- Lip syncing.- Tells a story (narrative).-The video subverts the genre of Pop and R&B. > This is as majority of Pop and R&B videos have some sort of choreography/performance. Whereas Peter Andre tells the narrative through his emotions and the film that’s faded in the background. </li></li></ul><li>Mise-en-scene<br />Faded film:- Shows the story of what he is singing about . Allows the listeners to connect with him and anyone who was/in his situation. - It is effective as it allows the listeners to listen to the narrative and also let them see a representation of his personal life. <br />Peter Andre:- The clothing that Peter Andre wears is casual smart and all black. He is also seen crouching in a dark isolated cinema. This helps represents a lonely and dark mood and reflects his song.- The use of a circular motion spot light, reiterates the loneliness and isolation in the room as its only shone on him. This lighting is also used so the listeners are able to see the artist whilst he is singing. - The use of circular and still spot lights may also be shone on just him as it shows his importance in someone's life (based on the lyrics).- He sings into a ‘50s style microphone’ which is seen as a prop. This shows a bit of performance, although is song is based on a narrative. - The use of dimmed lighting, shows the listeners members of a choir standing on the steps of the cinema singing alongside Peter. - When the lyrics ‘I wish I could have helped with your first step’,Peter is seen standing on steps. This shows he is matching some of the lyrics sung with the movement.- The last we see of Peter Andre in the actual video is the same of how we saw him when the video starts. Him crouching down with the faded film behind him.- The video is very simple, and this could be seen as very personal as it reflects his life and the love for his children.<br />
  4. 4. Screenshots of Mise-en-scene<br />Faded film in the background, shows a representation of his life.<br />Circular spot light, shows isolation and loneliness as its only shone on him.<br />Clothing is causal smart and all black. Sticks to the dark theme.<br />50’s style microphone, shows slight edge to performance.<br />Crouching in a dark isolated cinema, reflects loneliness. <br />Dimmed lighting is used to show choir who sing alongside Peter Andre.<br />Crouching - similar<br />Start<br />End<br />
  5. 5. Camera:- Close-ups are used to show the emotion on his face. For example, when he says ‘but I'm here now’ it shows a close of him slightly smiling, this showing he is happy with the fact he can help. - Slow motion tracking is used to move closer to Peter Andre, as the video first starts off with quite a wide shot showing him with his head down crouching and the faded video playing in the back. This movement of tracking is effective and works well as it moves with the slow tempo of the song.- A low angle shot is used later on in the video to show status and dominance. It also goes with the lyrics ‘leaving a mother to raise a child alone’. This suggest male have dominance in a relationship and the mother shouldn't have be left to raise a child on her own.- Close-ups of the faded video are used to allow the viewer to see closer look at the representation of his life. - Wide shots allow the viewer to see Peter as well as the faded film, whether Peter is standing, walking or crouching.- A wide shot is used effectively at the end of the video, as it allows us to see Peter Andre with his step son who the video is about. <br />Editing: - The use of cross-cutting allows the listeners to see the faded video close up and then Peter.<br />Sound:- The lyrics ‘becoming a father before I became a dad’ these lyrics are clearly personal to Peter Andre and this reinforces a narrative – him becoming a dad before he was a biological dad to his own children.- The voice over at the end from Harvey (who the song was written about) says ‘love you dad’ this again makes it personal.- Sound is diegetic.<br />Camera, Editing and Sound<br />
