Music Videos

Music videos can be categorised into different groups, these are:

Performance: Band/artist playing

Narrative: Includes story, commonly linking with lyrics

Mixture: Both performance and narrative

Cameo: Band/Artist features in narrative but doesn't perform

Animation: Digitally / Stop Frame

Music videos are short, so in order to get the most out of the time a lot of camera work has to be included.
From close ups to crane shots, tracking and low angles. Fast editing is common amongst a lot of music genres in their videos, jump cuts and editing to match the music can make the video much better quality.

Mise en scene varies in the different genres, from extreme use of costume and props, to the simple mise en scene of instruments and lighting.
