Music Videos Analysis





From watching and analysing these four videos I noticed some typical conventions throughout each of them; they are usually mainly performance with integrations of some narrative throughout which typically involves the artist as the central character. They usually also contain some illustration or amplification of the song’s lyrics to connect the song to the narrative/themes of the video.
