Our video shows how a horse becomes trapped, the dolphin witnesses this however simply laughs and swims away. When the dolphin becomes trapped the horse begins to get his sweet revenge on the dolphin and kicks him over. Our shots were quickly done and rushed and weren’t to the best of our ability, however we still were able to present a pretty clear narrative.
- Does it fulfill the traditional narrative structure? It tends to follow normal structure with the dolphin swimming as the equilibrium, there then becomes disruption when the horse starts to get trapped is the climax of the dolphin swimming and laughing away, the horse proceeding to kick the dolphin when it is stuck is the resolution for the horse who becomes content at the end.
- Do the characters fulfill conventional character types? Yes they do with the dolphin at first becoming the villain who is on top, however by the end when the dolphin becomes stuck the hero that is the horse remains on top like any other typical narrative.
- Are there binary oppositions? Yes there are binary oppositions for us it was past vs future, with in the past the horse is suffering in that situation however look ahead to the future with the dolphin suffering within the same situation.
- Explain how Music Video narratives can differ from these conventional ideas i.e. are able to play with time and space, are episodic, are anachronic, are thematic and don’t always have an ending so that they are repeatable etc. The narrative can always differ from the usual and typical conventional ideas as they can be played and mixed around with space and time. Narrative could also be thematic stating that there could be one main story throughout. It too could be anachronic where it is quite disjointed and not in the usual order of a story. Sometimes the video does not have an end which means it leaves the viewer intrigued and wanting to know a lot more. There is a small amount of time to tell a story in a music video so maybe a cliffhanger is best for it as you never sum up what has actually happened.
