A music video from a former student I really liked was ‘Bloodstain’; I thought this video was really effective both in telling a narrative clearly and also in illustrating the song’s themes well.

The narrative the student chose was well done because it had the clear theme of an ending relationship without too much acting and storytelling being needed, which can sometimes become confusing and ruin the impact of the video.

Another concept of the video I liked were the editing techniques they used. For example, the quick cutting between the close up of water being poured over the boy and him jumping into the water was a really good idea and went with the tempo of the music in the chorus well. The video also looks really clean and aesthetically pleasing because the camera shots are composed well, showing they were organised when shooting.
