Similar Video – Textual Analysis

gnash – i hate u, i love u (ft. olivia o’brien) [music video]

Mise en scene – At the start of this video we are presented with the setting, the sea – with the waves crashing off the rocks and a forest. This is similar to our setting as we are driving to Roseisle woods (and beach) to shoot. It then gets closer and shows the camera going through the trees, this is when we the first look at the costume. We see the persons white shoes, then we get a mid shot to see the upper half of the actor. He is wearing a leather jackets and is wearing sunglasses. This could portray this character as bring hard and tough. He is also wearing a chain which could indicate him being a “gangster” due to stereotypes. All of the lighting is natural in this video as it was shot outside.

Cinematography – Right off the bat we see long shots which establish the setting and give us an overall view. We then get some close shots to see the detail of the branches. We then get an angle which is looking towards the sky to give the perspective of the character walking through the woods. I intend to use a similar shot in our music video as it relates to the character. There is a mid shot of the waves crashing against the rocks. I am going to have a shot the same, this is to signify the dramatic changes in the story line for my film.

Sound – The music used in this video relates to the waves as it is very smooth but gets more intense. In a way the sound in this video is diegetic and non-diegetic because although the character cant hear the music in the back ground, they are the ones singing.

Editing – Editing in this video is simplistic, there are only a couple of things with are interesting the rest is just good cinematography which has been blended together. There is slow motion used for the wave sequence to show the waves crashing off the rocks.

Mise en scene – The setting is on the beach with couple running around, like they are in love. They touch each like holding hands and holding her waist, this is similar to the intimate scenes of my film. My actors will be wearing ordinary clothing, like jeans etc whereas in this video they wear beachwear. The lighting is nearly all natural as it shot outside except for the part where there are car lights because it is dark.

Cinematography – There is a shot of the couple holding hands in the car, i will be using that exact shot in my film. There are several shots which are showing the car travelling somewhere, this is a key shot I am wanting to include in the cinematography of my music video. There is long shot of looking up to the sky from the perspective of one of the characters, this will be a very interesting shot to spice up my film.

Sound – The music used in this video relates to the waves as it is very smooth but gets more intense. In a way the sound in this video is diegetic and non-diegetic because although the character cant hear the music in the back ground, they are the ones singing.

Editing – There are several editing techniques used in this video which I can take and put into my own film. For example the slightly pink filter, this would be good for my film as it romantic and indicates love. There are many slow motion edits which capture the moment the character is having.
