Narrative Development

Narrative is the ‘study of stories’. It includes the following:

  1. The order in which the story is told (structure)
  2. How the audience is positioned in relation to the narrative.
  3. The character’s journey. What epiphany do they have?
  4. The conflict and themes explored and how they are resolved.
  5. The codes in the text which help the audience understand the story and its messages.
  • It is crucial to have an equilibrium, a disruption then usually finish on a disequilibrium, this makes the video re watchable and the target audience will be more likely to watch it again.
  • The importance of the timeline is that it creates a clear visual for how our music video is going to pan out, it helps us to focus on our storyboard and helps create those enigma moments and cliff hangers
