RAY KAY Ray Kay has influenced my project in many ways, the way he approaches all the music videos he has worked on is unique. The style and technique is something i wanted to apply to my on work. The artists he has worked are the biggest in the industry and each time he always manages to convey his and their style to perfection e.g. Lady gaga "poker face" video. The artist i am working with is from the pop genre but he used to produce hip-pop beats for various local up-coming musicans. Which is why i chose to work with him because i am able to fuse the style together. I put together all the videos that Ray Kay has done and once i had put the images together i picthed the ideas to him. My own video will be shot in black and white and i will use some blue screen, this is because i want to try and achieve the cinematic aspect that Ray Kay seems to do so well. Ray Kay has worked on various videos and has worked with many artists he has worked with musicans like Beyonce, Ciara, Lady Gaga, Sean Paul, Christina Millian, Cherly Cole, The Dream, Amerie. During my research i looked at some of the videos he has directed for the singers to get some inspiration.
LADY GAGA POKER FACE Poker face was a video that was directed by Ray Kay the song was sang by the famous singer Lady Gaga. The video stood out to me because of it's style, one thing that Ray Kay manages to do well is take an artists style and he manages to incorporate it in the video which has become his signature. Lady Gaga is a very ecentric individual and Ray Kay manages to portray this is her video he took her public image and put all of her styles and managed to invent a memorable stylish video.
