Vans Cardigan and mini skirt Dr Martins ChinosThe image of the girl in the narrative part of the music video will be dressed similar to the Indie subculture. The imagesabove are examples of how the girl will be dressed. The first image is a girl in a short dress wearing Dr martin boots. Ipicked this image because this is common to the indie subculture. Although I want the female character to be dressedin an Indie subculture, I want the colours associated to be a girly one, colours such as pink to emphasis her feminineside.

The common colour ofchinos are a brown-beige so my female character would wear these colours if she wears these chinos.

From my questionnaire I know these are similar to the Indiesubculture; asking what’s your favourite style in clothing, shirts were 35% with 40% with chinos and 40% canvas shoes.From looking at these images of shirts and chinos, the colour of the shirts I want the band members to were is eitherblack, white (to go with the canvas shoes), red, orange and blue.• Red connotes love and romance. This is useful for us because our narrative includes romance so the red will help emphasize this and help the audience to understand more.• Orange connotes and represents joy and sunshine. This could be useful as it could empress how the main artist feels about the girl he gave his cigarette to and emphasising how happy he is talking to her.• Blue connotes and symbolises confidence and faith. This can help with representing the band as confident and especially the main artist who in the narrative is talking to the girl of his dreams. Audience could aspire to this as it shows courage and major confidence that some of the audience may lack.If chinos are worn, they will be of a brown-beige colour like the images because this is the most common colour in chinos.
