Here’s the final edit of my video after being given a lot of feedback and did many changes with shots and editing.


Evaluation 1

For this task I will be exploring what ways my final music video used and was influenced by real media. I will be posting a directors commentary with segments of my video next to the music videos I used by various artists for inspiration, and will be commenting on how and why I took inspiration from them and applied it to my final work. 

Although I did take inspiration from different aspects of real media, I also created a very individual and in my opinion, fresh, new piece of media. I challenged the classic indie ideas of having dark, romantic lighting and love stories, and created a story about a girl trying to find herself. My music video combined a lot of different ideas and forms of real media texts, but what I created and how I compiled my final outcome has led to a very interesting mix of different ideas and visuals. My music video is definitely one of a kind, and in addition to using inspiration from other artists work, I developed my own ideas and concepts and put them into use the best I could.

Digipak Advert 2


In this blog post i recreated the advert of the album AM by artic monkeys in which i copied all the elements including artwort, Font and colors. To accomplish this process I used Microsoft Word to gather the elements and work on the project. On the left, is the original advert that I got from google. It was quite easy to reproduce it as the whole production only contains black and white colors. Below I will be showing in a slideshow the different steps of how I recreated the advert.
