Weekly homework: video 3 and 5

RJD2 - Work it Out

A music video following one man through a city square, who is on crutches but the interesting way is how he moves. With a smooth motion which matches the song, this music is designed to be inspiring to an audience by showing the unordinary.   The man was born with a degenerative hip condition and has adapted to a different way of dancing with his crutches and use of skateboards. With limited use of editing, there is no sense of cutting to the beat of the song, however the video matches with the motions. Tracking is used to show different angles of the male as he makes his journey.

RJD2 - Let There Be Horns

A narrative video, taking inspiration from the name of the song and featuring a central protagonist of a bull, or similar animal with horns. The opening includes mise en scene with text showing the artist and song title. I think that this video is the type of video that can be easily achieved by ourselves in our own music video. Showing a real life situation of the bull going to work, but the costume gives an interesting aspect to the video. Like a short film, this video deals with issues of the characters struggle with stress of the daily life, by having to take pills to calm himself down. A wide variety of shots has been used in the separate scenes of this music video, which keeps the audience interested and is very effective alongside the song. Editing of cutting to the beat is used, with keeps the song synced with the video.
