So we got told to look at some of our favourite music videos and pick one to present, JUST ONE?! You don't know how difficult this is. There is so much to choose from, so here is a few of my favs from off the top of my head:
Close to Me - The Cure
I really like the concept of this music video. I don't know why, I just think it's really different. I've never seen anything like this before, I love the era too.
Black Coffee in Bed - Squeeze
The song and video just amuses me.
Thou Shalt always Kill - Dan le Sac VS Scroobius Pip
Another song and video that amuses me. I like the use time lapse (1.26-1.54), this is a route I am keen to explore.
We Are Your Friends - JUSTICE VS SIMIAN
Another thing I am interested in doing. I like how this video hasn't really got anything to do with the song. I don't usually like this, but in this case I think it's good. I'd like to do something this, film a load of random footage and perhaps marry it up with an appropriate song as I do not want to lipsynch.
Turn it up - Robots in Disguise
I think I am in love with the concept of the song more so than the video. Throughout the song, if you listen closely, several references from different song titles and albums are made. I really quite like this, reference to inspirations and influences.
The video itself is alright too. It is a good video if you are new to Robots in Disguise, this video is what they are all about basically. A good indroduction and insight to the life of Dee Plum and Sue Denim. As it shows them lip-synching, they stand out in their self-made clothes and the video also shows them performing live. The majority of their videos are very personal and this is an excellent example of projecting their image.
GIRL - Robots in Disguise
Another good video for getting to know Robots in Disguise. I like how silly this video is, and the linear narrative of it. Beginning. Middle. End. Again, another personal approach as both of their long-term boyfriends star in the music video.
Midnight Surprise - Lightspeed Champion
This is an amazing video! It like ten minutes long!
I really like this video, it's so surreal I've never seen anything like it.
Foundations - Kate Nash
I really, really, really dislike this song, but I like the use of time lapse.
