SP - My Favourite Five Music Videos
1. Labrinth ft. Tinie Tempah - Earthquake
This is my favourite music video at the moment because i think it is a great example of a modern music video. There are alot of very effective techniques used in the video which give it a futuristic feel. It is also very upbeat and the editing resembles this with very short takes and fast paced editing. All of these efffects make the video eye catching and certainly in my case make it easy to watch over and over again.
2. Kanye West - Touch The Sky
I really enjoy watching this music video because i really like the effects that have been used especially at the start. These effects remind me of the credits at the start of a film and they work really well for this video. I also think the narrative side of the music video is very clever and it was a very good idea. The director was called Chris Milk, the release date was in early April 2006 and just like the Thriller music video cost $1,000,000.
3. Muse - Sing for Absolution
As i have been doing some research in to Muse as they are they band we are recreating our song for, i came across this music video. Just like the music video by Labrinth ft. Tinie Tempah called Earthquake, i like this music video because of the futuristic feel of the msucic video. I t is really interesting to watch and i could watch it several time without getting bored which is ultimately the aim for any music video.
4. Micheal Jackson - Thriller
This music video is one of the most famous of all time and even though some would define it as a short film, I believe for it's time it is an excellent example of what can be acheived without the use of the modern technology available in the current market today. The director of this music video was John Landis and it was released on December 2, 1983. The production cost for the music video was $1,000,000 and i believe for that amount of money it was a great success.
5. Tenacious D - Tribute
This music video is completely different to all the ones i have mentioned before it because i enjoy watching this one for it comedy aspects. This music doesnt take itself too seriously and stands out because it is different to all of the rest. It is simplistic, funny and has a few efects used which are meant to look abit amateurish and thats why the music video works so well.
