Changes Before creating this I completed a timed analysis and I wanted to use the same songs as my timed analysis however I was unable to find any information about the video for Geography by Andy Jordan so I have substituted this song with another song by Tich who is the singer of the song I have chosen to do. I chose to do this as I feel it will give me a better idea of the type of videos she made and what she includes in her videos.

Key Selling Points The music video is performance based and is made up of very few shots as the video is mainly a tracking shot of Tich as she walks to go on stage. The video features Tichs sister Kat who is well known by all of Tichs fans as many have met her at Tichs concert. The simplistic nature fits the song as it is about her feeling alone before she goes on stage and that it what the music video shows as she isnt talking to anyone, she cant hear anyone around her.

How does the video establish genre?Tich is described as a pop artist. In this music video the genre is established through the simplicity of music and the lack of special effects. The simplicity of the music video keeps the focus on the song and the lyrics It also establishes genre through location as it is set a small music venue and though make up and costume both are simple and classy which are both very typical of the pop genre as in pop music videos the make up and costumes tend to be over exaggerated.

How successful is the video? Identify elements the would or wouldnt work for you I like this music video because it is simple and keeps the audiences attention for the length of the music video. However I wouldn't create a music video, I dont like the lack of different camera shots so I would use multiple different camera shots and I would use different camera angles. I cannot really take much inspiration from this music video as this is performance based and I am creating a narrative based performance. However looking at this music video has helped me understand genre better.

Key Selling Points One key selling point of this music video is that it includes shots of Tich playing on her stripy keyboard which she is well know for playing. Another key selling point of the music video is that she is wearing all her bracelets, which are significant to her fans as they are all given to her by them. A third key selling point of the music video is that right at the beginning of the music video it shows a close up of her hands playing the piano which relates back to the videos of her doing cover where close ups of her hands would be shown.

Key Selling Point Cont.Another selling point if the music video is the use of both narrative and performance.The narrative keeps the audience interested in the video as it is telling them a story and they want to know how the story will end. The performance keeps the audience listening to the song as they can see Tich singing the song and get really get in to the performance of the song.

17

How does the video establish genre?The video establishes genre through the narrative the it portrays with in the video. As is common with many recent pop songs the theme is love and this song fits in with this theme so this establishes genre.Another way in which the video establishes genre is through the costuming. In many pop music videos the artist will wear clothes that are fashionable and trendy and that are relatable to the target audience.

18

How successful is the video? Identify elements the would or wouldnt work for youI can take inspiration from the narrative as it will help me to understand exactly how many scenes I need to include to make the music video interesting and keep the attention of the audience through out the music video. Another piece of inspiration I can take from the video is that of the speed which the scenes change and how long to keep the same scene in the video and when to get rid of the scene and put in a new one.

22

Key Selling Points One key selling point of this music video is that it includes very real and common themes that many people will be able to relate to such as drug use and break ups. It is very realistic and doesnt appear to be about something that is never likely to happen in the real world. It is set in a very generic setting so is relatable to many different people. The setting of a fairground also means that there are multiple scenes that can take place and all within one setting.

23

Key Selling Points Cont. Another Key Selling Point is that the artist is only singing and the story is being told by other actors meaning that the viewer can differentiate between that story and the performance as if it is the same person it can become quite muddled.Another key selling point is that in the video that it uses a range of different shots and fast paced editing meaning that the attention of the audience is kept throughout the music video.

24

How does the video establish genre?This song is described as a pop rock song through costuming. Her dress in the song looks like something that would be worn in a pop video however it has been given a grunge look to make it look more like an outfit that would be worn in a rock video. The theme of the video also helps establish genre because the theme is drugs and this is a very common theme for rock songs at the moment.

25

How successful is the video? Identify elements the would or wouldnt work for you From this video I can take inspiration from the story as this shows exactly how to portray the story that I want to portray within the video.

I can also take inspiration from this music video as to how to pace the music video and whether to make it fast paced or slow paced and for how long to keep each scene in the video for.
