Crazy in love
I chose this music video because it shows women in a negative way. At the beginning of the video, the camera is mainly aimed on Beyonce.The camera shows her bum and then she starts dancing on the floor. At one point in the music video she is dancing very sexually in a alley way with a group of women which shows that she could be an object of desire. Another point in the video she was dancing around Jay Z sexually. At the end of the video her movement, dancing and gestures were sexual and she was biting her finger. Also mostly in the video Beyonce was wearing very shorts clothes.
I chose this music video because it shows women in a positive way. At the beginning of the music video. She is standing in front of a massive wall which leads into a maze. She is wearing a purple and black cape which are dark colours and they are not really inviting. She is also wearing dark red lipstick, purple eyelashes and purple eyebrows. In this video she is not shown as a object of desire because she is not dancing sexually and not wearing short clothes that are revealing.The setting behind her is in a maze and it is very dark.
I chose this music video because it shows women in a negative way. In the beginning of the music video the camera is close up on nicole and on her face. Also at the beginning of the video she is dancing very sexual and she is wearing what it looks like just a green jacket so that could suggest that she is an object of desire she is also wearing glasses and jewellery. Throughout the music video she is dancing with a group of women on a wall and then she is dancing in a swimming pool and at the end she winks at the camera.
What you have here is very good and you have responded well to the question, even posing your own questions. You have used examples solidly.
T: Try to use more examples and key terminology (see VCOP Blog). Pick out all of the technical aspects (Mise-en-scene, editing, lyrics etc) and how they help you come to your conclusions.
