The music video that I chose is Stay the Night By Zedd and Hayley Williams.
I really like the video to this song because in my opinion it has a lot of emotion behind the characters and the dancing is very descriptive. The dancers were portraying a couple who was having relationship issues, however they obviously loved each other very much. The blurriness and lens flares give the majority of the video a very dreamlike quality, then the last frame is very clear and it gives the viewer a sense of closure for the characters in the video.
The thing I disliked about the video, other than the song itself, was how the picture was often very flashy and the blurred effect was played out a little more than was necessary. The song itself was far too repetitive and even though I like Hayley as an artist, the song did not do her justice.
The video as a whole was very well put together and the concept was portrayed beautifully.
