Evaluation task 1: In what way does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

I have compared my music video to the Rihanna and Justin Timberlake music video to Rehab. Below are the shots I have compared them with. On the left side is our Alarm music video and on the right is the original Rehab video.

In the first pictures both of the girls are both reflecting on their relationships. Both of them are single shots and a close up .They both look upset to the ground.

In the second image the “bad boys” are both walking away. Which again shows similarity between the two story lines.

In those two shot the similarity is that they are both watching the guy and the emotion anger is seen in their facial expression. Both of them are watching the boys from the back. And the light effect is also similar.

We tried to get the lip syncing in the same color as rihanna but in the end we decided to choose the black and white filter.

In this shot the girls walk past the ‘bad boys’ and they turn around to look after them.

This is a similar shot to one of the other comparison shots but they are both walking behind them and the boys are standing in the middle of the room unaware of what is going on. I find this a very powerful shot because in the story lines they both realize at this point they do not the the ‘bad boys’. Also again the lighting is similar.

In the story line those shots are different because in the left picture it is a memory of them happy together and in the right picture they are already in a fight. But the shot was inspired and they look similar. In both of the pictures it is night time.

In those two shots it is as if it is the introduction of the ‘bad boys’. Single shot of them.

In the last one the similarities are clear. They both face away from each other.
