TASK (this is collaborative so you can submit the same document/film but you all have to equally contribute).
Create a presentation/film/screencastify/voicethread/Slideshow focusing on the Repertoire of Elements necessary for your particular band /artist to be generically conventional. You can probably already use a lot of your ideas from your song pitch but be careful not to just copy this but instead use it as a foundation for exploring the genre of your song and how this will impact on the video, web pages and digipak.
Some of the suggested areas of music videos to cover are on this sheet but you should consider:
- Website of similar artists
- Album art from similar artists
- Videos of similar artists
Find generically similar artists.
- Discuss who they are, what do they wear, how do they style themselves, where do they perform, who are their fans, how are their digipaks / videos similar, what common features are there in their music videos (fast paced editing, hand held camera, filters, locations, authentic/live performances, produced performances etc). Use your performer too in amongst the analysis.
Ensure you get the following terms in to your presentation and also your introduction and reflect on the value of the task in the blog:
- Repertoire of elements
- Predictable pleasure
- Target audience
Consider ‘genre’ as you produce your video and it will be so much easier to talk about if it comes up in the exam in Section 1b.
