Music Video Form & Conventions

Link attached^

This is what I have learnt about music video form and conventions.

The relationship between the song and the narrative

This can be conveyed in three ways illustration, amplification and disjuncture.

Illustration- The narrative in the video very closely echoes the lyrics and the music.

Amplification- The narrative whilst inspired by the song adds a new element to compliment the song.

Disjuncture- The narrative seems to hold very little relationship to the song and seems quite random.

I have also learnt that the star image and MES is very important in music videos.
