We see the singer slowly singing the track with an extreme close-up shot. Wee see a contrast between fast-paced music and slow mouth movements As the song nears an end, we see people flying into the air. This has the effect as it coincides with the fast-paced music at the end.

Her hair as well is nicely brushed and she is wearing make-up. Compared to the man, he is wearing a plain white t-shirt and some jeans and his hair is a bit messy. Jewelry

As a hose genre, you would expect them to have more up market clothing.The Ipod and speakers symbolises thata party may be about to start or someform of dancing is going to take place. Why are there two people wearing strange costumes? The logo on the box which the IPod is in is the same logo which is on Dada Life’s website.
  9. 9. Feed the Dada – Dada Life ‘So come and feed the Da Da Da Da Da’ The bald men are the Dada, they are producers.
  10. 10. Eric Pydz – PjanooThe establishing shot of this video show us aman, possibly the artist, running away fromsomething which we do not find out. Thevideo starts up with an ELS of the manrunning along a railway track, followed by alow angle CU then a birds eye view from theside.

We see that it isin the middle of the American The CU of the plants give gives uswilderness; Cowboy like land, dry another indication of how dry the landland and dry grass with an is.

Another editing technique used is a hedgehog which then turns into a little man.

  14. 14. Pjanoo – Mise-en-SceneAs I have mentioned before, the ELS atthe beginning of the video shows us thewilderness and state a man is goingthrough. He is running along a railwaytrack that is probably not in use. Once the man enters the barn, we see that the glasses, chairs and bottles are covered in dust. It is also a darkened room, with the only light coming from outside. Right we also see the exact detail of how dry the wilderness is with dry plants in shot.
  15. 15. Pjanoo – Mise-en-SceneHere we can see that a man encounters a little man,possibly from a tribe. He is wearing a costume that ismade out of things from the bush. From this shot we can get a good look on how the man is looking. From what it looks like he is a stereotype of a cowboy, but no guns. He is wearing jeans, a rolled-up collard t-shirt and an Indiana Jones hat. He is also carrying a bag which looks like a bag cowboys carry with money in it. We can make out that it is money, an American dollar note
  16. 16. Pjanoo – Mise-en-SceneMy final analysis of the man is that we an see he iswearing cowboy like boots when he walks into thebarn
  17. 17. Nervo – You’re Gonna Love Again For the song to start, it takes twenty seconds to happen. A range of close- This close-up shows us that the women in the ups and medium shots are used in the car is looking at a picture, but then screws it first 25 seconds of the video. up. Is this related to the song, ‘..Love Again’The extreme close-up showsthe detail into how much she isscrewing up the picture.

As the music gathered pace, there is a long-shot used to show everyone having fun and dancing around.
  19. 19. Editing – You’re Gonna Love Again One logo shown here is used form the video and the other one from Nevro’s website. They are the same font and same style. The purpose of this is to symbolize the artist. As you see this close up from behind, time is condensed as the music being played at the time is slower than it normally is. The close-up here is darkened to give the shot more of an effect.
