In order for our artist to fit the indie genre in which we are going for, we first thought of what members in our year would be willing to give up their spare time in order to help us fulfil our A2 music video task, taking into consideration their indie style before asking them.
We decided to go with Erica and Tom as our final artists are we know that they are very flexible and will be a great asset for us. This in turn meant that we could start filming once giving them all the costume/prop/ make-up details which we would need before hand.
Thirdly, we firstly went to Thorndon Park in order to try a few shots with our two actors and to get a sense of how their lip syncing is. During, the course of the day we also filmed a few shots and took several pictures of our artists for our digipak/advert. Above in the corner is an example of this.
The picture symbolises exactly why we have chosen our artists. This was due to the fact that they're both indie and conform to our genre. The use of the patterns in which they both convey also resembles a connotation of togetherness which will connote their lust for one another which will be shown through our music video as a result of this.
Our music video will demonstrate their underlying 'lust' for one another and will represent them being full of raw emotions just like our audience, therefore our audience will be able to relate to our artists well in terms of emotions.
Our artists portray freedom throughout our music video by being outdoors in the nature, thus exploring all different aspects as a result. Are artists therefore love exploring new environments.
Our artists will portray happiness throughout our music video. As a result, our audience will perceive our artists as potential role models as they will give off a happy/energetic vibe as a result, this will be presented through our music video, through the use of costumes, props and settings.
Our artists will also represent togetherness throughout our music video. This will be shown through the unique bond which will enable them to be perceived as close as a result. This will add to an overall positive effect for our music video as it represents our artists as being understanding and a calming influence for their audience.
Therefore, creating a positive atmosphere all round.
