Artist Mise-en-scene

This is my artist mise-en-scene presentation which includes what my main protagonists in my music video is going to be wearing and what their make-up will look like. It was important and effective to make this post because it helped broaden my understanding of what each of my characters will look like in the final product. In addition to this it will help present women in a natural and positive way.

In my music video I film a group of women traveling round and taking on a huge iconic city together (New York) without a male presence. The idea of the music video was to empower women and their independence. Therefore I decided to portray their make up and the clothes very naturally to emphasis the fact that they are strong, dominant when their alone and bare of strong makeup and clothing, to prove they are just as powerful when in casual clothes. More over I wanted them to look natural because it will help my audience to identity and relate to them and aspire to be like them.

Location Mise-en-scene

Once I had chosen the song I wanted to use it made it easier to think of locations to fit my music video and song. Completing this task was useful as it helped me broaden my ideas and explain why I would choose these locations.

Below I have selected some images from my photography of locations I wanted to shoot at… as I travelled to New York I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to film some of my music video as I wanted the city to be a main focus point in the narrative of my music video, as cities are vast, busy and have beautiful architecture which I really wanted to capture. In addition, I also discovered a variety of locations that has extremely interesting and unique glow lighting which I thought would be extremely effective and eye catching if I used some in my music video making it more appealing and entertaining for the audience watching.

More over, moving away from the idea of a busy city and bright lights, I think I also want to conduct some filming in the black box room located in the studio at school, as I believe you can capture some beautiful simplistic shots in there of close up of the artists to show the intimacy and making it easier for my audience to connect and identify with my music video and the artists starring in it. In addition as I have focused on lights in the city I will also be using different colour gels in the black box to make my music video flow and appealing to watch.

This post was useful because it helps me broaden my knowledge on the type of equipment I could use in the production and shooting of my music video, and having more knowledge and research of the equipment will make me feel more comfortable and confident when coming to create my music video.
