In order to get an idea of what to include within our music video, I had to look at existing products to look at typical conventions of a music video. I looked at two products which had a similar narrative to our own.
Stan - Eminem
Mariah Carey - Obsessed
The major conventions I found after watching these music videos are;
- A different shot every 3 seconds.
- The artist singing being the main star.
- The lyrics of the song matching to the actions.
- Editing fitting the pace of the music.
- The mise-en-scene/costumes reflecting the mood of the song.
