Introduction

Media A2: MS3 Coursework Evaluation My research investigation was based upon the narrative of the music video in relation the narrative set by the lyrics. When I began my media project, I had to do research into various forms of narrative and the ways artists have used narrative within their music videos. To find locate existing music videos, I used youtube as a main source to analyse and also find inspiration for my own creation. As part of my research I conducted a questionnaire which helped me in selecting what form of narrative to use. From my questionnaire, I found that humour seemed to be a particular concept which the audience preferred rather than a pure narrative based video.

The overall reaction from the audience was that 'there is a very clear connection between the video and the research investigation as well as making it comedic' as well as the feedback upon 'really good camera work'. From the positive reactions of audiences, I feel I successfully achieved my objective to oppose the narrative set by the lyrics through the editing I done as well as my success in applying a comedic theme to the video.
