What are the conventions of music videos from this genre?
Usually the artist wears casual clothes, and there is a narrative featuring people that arent in
the band. The songs are quite often about a story or event, and so they can show this across
by having actors carry out a narrative. It isnt unusual to have the band feature in the song at
the same time though.
How are you going to meet these conventions in your video?
Style (in-concert and as live footage; animation (stop motion, digital); interpretative; narrative;
impressionist; surrealist; pastiche; parody; referencing; homage)
My music videos was all of filmed footage
In my music video i would like to try and represent some of the conventions i spoke about.
These include casual clothing such as jackets, t-shirts and jeans.
The lighting in my video was natural. In some shots, the sun effects the shot, but does not
make the shot worse at any stage. The final shot in my music video is all about the lighting,
and it works well.
The location of my music video is set in a field. I chose this setting because it suited the style
of video that the song was about. Also, the location was close, therefore making filming a lot
Shot types
My shots range from lots of long shots, to medium shots and close ups. The reason for long
shots is too show them both together. Medium shots are used as the specify on one
character, and close ups are used to show emotion, which this song is all about.
What music videos have you watched to research your genre?
I used lots of snow patrol songs to do my research on. The reason for this is that they are
all similar, therefore their videos will have a link. Similar artists such as James Blunt has a
similar style of music, and some of my inspiration was from his song; Wisemen.
How have these videos influenced the decisions made? Include screen shots of the key
I do feel that some of the aspects from these music videos have influenced some of the
decisions of shot types i will make. For instance, the close up shots allow emotion to be
showed, which is key for a song like this.
Insert the song lyrics below
We'll do it all
On our own
We don't need
Or anyone
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world
I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words,
Are said too muh
They're not enough
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world!
"orget what we're told
#efore we get too old
$how me a garden that's %ursting into life
&et's waste time
'hasing ars
Around our heads
(In al%um version %ut not in musi video)
I need your grae
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world!
"orget what we're told
#efore we get too old
$how me a garden that's %ursting into life
All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your *erfet eyes
They're all I an see
I don't know where
'onfused a%out how as well
+ust know that these things
Will never hange for us at all
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Meaning of the song
Does the song have a meaning? If so, what is it?
The meaning of the song is about taking someone back. Hes asking questions, and
the girl is also asking the same. The flashbacks represent how they used to be
together, and now how theyve come apart. It shows this in the video, and now how
they are sending the same message to each other, but not realising it.
How will your visuals relate to the song? (Illustrate, Amplify or Disjuncture)
I think my visuals will link to song and this will be shown with timing if shots, type of shots
and when they cut. The timing of shots changes depening on the lyrics. At times there are
shots that last about 15 seconds, but others, such as flashbacks, can last up to a maximum
of 2 seconds. The type of shots chosen are key, as ive already explained.
Insert your storyboard here
Think carefully about the shots you will be using. Consider the range of shots/angles
to give interest and perspective
