Final Video!

Hey there you beautiful individuals! Here is our final piece, I thought it came out pretty well, but I’ll leave that for you to decide 🙂 ENJOY!

Also – little side note, we’ve still got the Digipak coming along so you’ve got something else to look forward to.

Point 13 – The Audience Research!

Billy and I asked people around campus how they find their music, wether or not they look at the videos that go with the songs and how they feel about them.

One of the most interesting quotes in this video comes from our friend Alex, he says that if it’s an ok song then a good video makes it better, but if it’s a good song and has a good video it makes it excellent.

Point 6 – The Track! (V2)

Hey everyone! So we’ve recently come into possession of a clean version of Fatboy Slim’s “Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat” which means we no longer have a reason not to use it in our music video!

And so I am proud to announce that we will be using that song instead of Newton Faulkner’s Write it on your Skin! Of course this ALSO means we will be required to redo any points that involved our genre and our song but that’s a small price to pay 😀

As part of this switching of songs, we need to pick 3 things that defines THIS genre, these are highlighted below lovely people.

#1 – The Bass Line:
EDM often has a very distinctive bass line, the bass line is often considered to be the foundation of EDM-orientated songs.

#2 – The Synthesiser:
Almost all modern EDM is constructed using a synth, this has very quickly become a trademark of pop culture due to the fact that it makes music so much easier to create and produce.

#3 – The Spoken Word:
When considering EDM Billy and myself have discovered that the lyrics are not sung but spoken and left that way or their speech has been altered in post E.G: AutoTune, an example of this is “Satisfaction” by Benny Benassi

Point 10 – The Full Textual Analysis Of A Video Similar To What We Want! (Part 2)

Billy and I have been looking into doing something similar to D.A.N.C.E. By Justice.

The Cinematography makes the video look as if it was shot as one long shot, however this is a brilliantly constructed fallacy, it has simply been edited to look this way, which is something we’d like to try replicate in our video if it’s not too much of a struggle.

Most of this video was completed in post, by looking at the effects on the shirts we have deduced that they must have been wearing either blue-screen or green-screen T-Shirts, by doing this they were able to chroma-key out the green/blue and replace it with CGI.

The music in the video is very repetitive and somewhat strange which I feel compliments the video well since the video is just a series of random effects plastered onto a shirt, at one point there is some typography involved with the shirts and the music but it is only for a brief moment.

There isn’t a lot in the scene which I also feel makes the video so good, it’s simply two friends walking around, the occasional interaction between each other’s shirts adds another dimension to the video and helps maintain a surreal atmosphere.
