Music Video Project
Dec. 17, 2013
The music video I chose to do was Blue October – Hate me. I really like this song because it can explain how someone starts to feel and how they can start to lose themselves and need someone else there. I really like how the music video is a concept making it look like different places throughout the video to help explain the lyrics to anyone just watching and listening. I also really enjoy how it’s based around the singer walking and seeing his mother when she helped him as a kid get through all the troubles he had while growing up.
What I didn’t like about the video is how the pictures and the shots were taken they weren’t the most descriptive as I thought they could be in certain shots, and could help explain the lyrics or emotions that go along with this song a bit better. Also if the items they show in the music video could help with showing certain items like some tears or blood to show the real feeling of the pain for the singer or maybe a wilting rose for that. Also a few times they could have shot the video scenes in the music video with better angles then they did instead of just being a close up on the singer and semi close ups on other things zoom in more to see how the actors in the music video are reacting during that time in the song.
