Darren Styles -Save Me

I have chose Darren Styles because I love his songs and he's a great DJ. The song here I like how he has created this video , with him being the sky . The song communicates well to the chorus "I want you to save me." The setting is really calm here with the blue sky in the background . You can feel his emotion in the song, it's how he sings it . It makes you want to find out more about this person. 
The music video for "Save Me" was filmed in Spain, using high wires to show Darren jumping off a tall building. You got love Darren Styles, he brilliant. 

At the start of the video we have a long shot of the blue sky. We get the changes of the different lights coming through from the clouds. There’s g another long shot of Darren Styles staring out ahead in his own little world. This shows us that he must be thinking about someone or something. The light closes in on him and he then disappears probably into the clouds. We get the different light flares of light coming from different angles within the sky. We get the big boom sound; we have a voice over of Darren Styles singing. The voice over of Darren Styles singing is good because it tells the story more of his actions and how he’s feeling during the scenes. We have a mid-shot of him walking ahead from the left angle and then we have another mid- shot of him in the right hand corner walking ahead. These two different angles show the different speed of him walking to the end of the building. Mid-shots are used to concentrate on their upper body and their actions. We have a long shot of him of looking ahead from a better and wider angle. The view looks amazing, so calm and peaceful to look out from.

We get the view from before from the right (mid-shot) of him walking closer to the edge. We have him in centre looking above, his head tilted up a bit. We have the light flare again going into brightness and back to where Darren Styles stands. We have a close up of his hands, you can see he has them tighten up; this shows all the tension he is feeling in his hands. We have a downward shot from his body looking down to his trainers. This shot is good for a different perspective from a steep angle. It’s like were looking down from his point of view. POV shots are good when we’re looking from what lies ahead from the person. Darren Styles in this shot could be looking downwards from the building. He may be thinking “What if I fell will I make it”. We have a side view shot (POV) this focuses on his upper body and his hand movements. We have another shot of where we see him moving his arms back, it looks like he’s about to take off into the deep sky.

We see him a behind long shot, but I would say the camera is positioned on the floor with the camera looking up. Just because where you see him about to fall, the perspective looks low like the camera slanted looking upwards. As he moves his legs he’s about to fall off the building. Here we start to feel the tension if he’s going to fall or not.  We see the stillness in his hands as their still out to the sky; you see he is hanging of the edge. As he falls the light decreases as he falls even more. You have the bright light flare to the right increasing; this leaves it into a shadow on his right side of his face, which is a close up. Close ups are good for when you want to capture someone’s emotions; you can see that Darren Styles is hurt and in pain .Darren Styles repeats the lyrics “please save me, save me”. He wanting someone to save him, so someone who he loves maybe. We have an extreme long shot used here as we see him falling in the air with his arms and legs out like he is flying. The shot here is called an aerial shot because he is hanging of a building. I would say there is a camera attach to a helicopter to get this angle from a bigger landscape perspective. Extreme long shots are used for an extended look of a scene with including mise-en scene and capturing a bigger focus.

We get a long shot view of him from a distance, so I would say the helicopter has moved further back to create this depth within the image. We have a quick close up glance of him. We have the bright light flares coming into together creating that haze effect on him. I like the bright flare because it shows how deep in thought he is. We have different close ups of him with his eyes closed. Darren Styles is singing “Save Me”; this does truly show us how he’s feeling in the way he’s singing. The way he sings is slow voice, but you can feel the song more. You have that long shot again of him falling from a distance. Another close up of him with his hands up in front of him. His hands slowly go as he looks up to the sky. We get a long shot of where the camera has moved in closer, but creating that wider shot of him falling down. We have a close up of Darren Styles where he is looking right at the camera singing “I need you to save me”. We can feel he’s emotions when he is singing. The next long shot I like is where he’s floating in the air; it looks pretty cool this shot .I like it how it fits in with the sky above with him positioned below it. It creates depth within the scene especially when the song is called save me this scene works well with it. He just wants to be saved by someone before it’s too late. Another shot is a long shot too with him positioned on his side; you have the bright light coming through as he closes in deeper. He kinder rotates so he’s in an upwards and downwards position. This shows that he is thinking of her of him being distracted by the memories he remembers of her.

You have the bright light flares again leaving him in a mid-shot of him turning. You have a long shot of him in a more spread out position as he reaches the light which full fills over him. You have a long shot again of him rotating around from the exterior building. I think the rotating and the light flares may link to him as he is thinking of his girlfriend and as well as him having flashbacks of her. We see his memory come to life where we have a close up of this lady (girlfriend maybe.) We have a quick flash of the light flares which then leads back to Darren Styles of a close up as he is looking and thinking into the light. We have the quick take off's where Darren Styles is falling down and down from the building. This shows the fast motion of him falling which looks good. We have flashbacks of the lady again. We have a rotation look from the building itself from a low angle view, so like were looking up to it. We have his lady friend again in his memory. We have the same shots of him in mid-air and the flashbacks of his lady friend repeatedly. We have shots of where he falling down from a different part of the clouds (long shots) of him singing. We have close ups of Darren Styles singing and shots of him and his lady friend together with the light flare drawing in on them .

We have a quick panning shot of the clouds and a mid-shot of Darren Styles singing as he is rotating in the sky. We have mid shots of him and his hands and back to where he’s falling in the sky. We have close ups from different angles of him singing and memories of his lady friend again. We have the long shots of him floating in the sky. We get the light flares coming in again. We get close up of his hand when he sings “So take me by the hand please don't leave me here alone.” We have a close up of him singing and then to where he is floating in the sky above and the camera goes back to him in a close up of him singing. We have him where he’s getting restless and lost as he is closing his eyes.  We get all the different downwards and upwards shots as he turns, leading back to him in a close up. We have a long shot of four people in an office and they all rush over to the screen. The light flares brightens up and we get close ups of his arms, we have that quick take off again where he is falling. We get long shot of the people looking over the screen; they’re probably amazed by this. We get a mid-shot of Darren Styles looking relieved. We get all the rotations, upside and down shots of him closing his eyes and thinking. Close ups of him singing, long shots of him floating in the sky as well as falling creating different depth within the scene. At the end we see him reunited with his lady friend.  


"I have been waiting all of my life  for you to come a long and make everything all right, my body shaking right through my bones, please take me my by the hand don't leave me here a lone" 

"I want you to save me"

These lyrics are really strong; it shows that he has been waiting for a long time for he’s friend which he wants to be more than friends. He wants to be saved by this person, who he cares for a lot. He wants to be with her for the rest of his life.  The lyrics can relate to pain, hurt, devastation and life. It can reflect on how people feel today about someone whether it’s family, boyfriends and girlfriends. It shows us  how much we do something for the one we  like , we will do anything to get to that place. We all go through these stages at some point during our life.


Here this s done by these two guys. They are good but it's like they are being forced to sing the song. It's just by the way they are standing and there is no feel to the song.

 Darren Styles - is live at clubland on Friday 14th March 2008. Here you have the crowd present; it looks like there having a good time. There singing as well with Darren Styles. They have their glow sticks with them at the ready dancing around. The atmosphere looks brilliant with so many people. You have the dancers in their retro clothes; you have the spotlights at the back creating the different flashes of lights, going all the way around. You get the reactions of the people in the crowd, it looks so much fun. This is a very raving style for hard-core. 

Here is a dub step version of Darren Styles. This is brilliant because it creates a different dynamic of the song . You can hear the bass more where it builds up. You can hear like different skipping noises like a DJ is spinning the record. He repeats I want you to save me - This creates the different bass line of the song. You can hear the drum patters and you get shorts bits of his voice. The chorus it creates the more dub step sound  with all the bass line skidding sounds.  like this , it sounds good. But the original is better.  

Here is a proper hardcore version of Darren Styles - Save Me . He still has the emotion in the song. The music starts to build up with all the dance feel and sounds to it . The chorus bit gets really into the dance/Hard-core part of the song. You still have the soft sounds in the background. This song good, I'm into my hard-core music. 


One Direction - Live While Were Young

I have chosen this music video because it's a good song and  It's very upbeat. I do like the band , I think there cool. It shows them having fun and having a laugh with each other. It makes you want to join them as well. It creates that happy energetic feel to the song. 

At the start of the video we have a close up of Harry where we see him sleeping. Close ups are good when we want to catch someone’s facial emotions. As Harry and the guys start to wake, we have a sound of a guitar playing. I like how you can hear the strings of the guitar and then it turns into a sharp and slick sound of the guitar strings; a bit like an alarm clock sound in a way. 

We have mid shots of Liam singing, he looks cute. We have a side view (mid shot) of the tent where we see Harry’s head popping out. We have a side view of Liam singing again from a different angle; so a point of view shot I would say from a side angle view. The camera shot is good because we get his reaction of when he’s singing as well as him looking through into the camera from a different perspective. We can see that the camera is positioned from the person in the left hand side where we can see someone’s shoulder. The camera will be placed there to get this point of view shot of Liam. We get a different angle from him into a mid-shot which are commonly used to concentrate on Liam’s upper body of him singing and to get his reaction. 

You get a mid-shot of Louis poking his head out the tent .We get a shot of Zayn (mid shot). You get a point of view shot again of Niall with his guitar. We have that over shoulder shot, so a point of view shot with the camera on Niall. You have a mid-shot of the guy’s heads coming out from the tent from a side view on (point of view shot.) Then the camera moves round to a mid- shot of Niall and Louis poking their heads out the tent. I like this shot it’s a different shot moment approach, but it looks cool. You have a mid-shot of Liam again singing and a POV shot of him from before. When he sings “The music up the window’s down” - the guys from the tent (side view POV shot) they all tumble out the tent I find it pretty funny.      

We have Zayn in a (mid shot) singing, he’s got a good voice and looks good too. We have a mid-shot of Harry clapping his hands on his knees. It looks like someone is having fun. We have another POV shot of a long shot of Zayn, showing us him and the surroundings he’s in. We have a side view POV shot leaving it into a mid-shot of where we have another guy playing a guitar. We have Harry and Niall who is playing the guitar. When Zayn sings “Just pretending that we're cool” we have a POV shot of Harry acting cool with his funny hand movements. We have a mid-shot of Zayn again singing, then with a shot of Louis and Harry messing about with each other. (There showing the fun factor of guy’s life messing around and having fun with friends.) Then we get a mid- shot of the guys attitudes coming in close to the camera, especially Harry making his point of the song.

We have the guys in a field of grass, so a different location; with them walking towards the camera. POV shot, capturing their emotions and the surroundings around them. When they all sing “Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy till we see the sun.”; it’s like a voice over at this point as we seem them having fun on a swing (mid shot). The things their doing relate to the lyrics of the song. It does show they're all having fun at this point especially when Louis falls into the water. We get a long shot of him from a much wider angle; giving us a feel of the location around them. We have a mid-shot of the others guys reaction of them laughing and smiling.  

We get a mid-shot of a closer look of Louis where he is all wet; it looks like he enjoyed that experience. We have a different location; we have them where they're still in greenery field of them all singing. The shot we get is a mid-shot, giving their attitude. “Tonight let's get some “And live while we're young.” This links to where Louis and Liam are about to push each other of their boat thing. We get a long shot view of where we see Liam falling into the water. You can see the water splash spray of where he’s fallen in. They're just having a laugh and it’s what life is all about.

 These lyrics“Woahhh oh oh oh Woahhhh oh oh oh” - this is where we see them in a POV shot of them on a bumpy ride on a KSU; It looks actually quite fun to be honest .Looks like there having a fun on one of those. I would say they have used a dolly shot because where see the KSU moving; this shot would be used to capture the scene as it moves closer. We get the fast heat coming of the wheels as there moving away. We get a long shot from a distance to see a wider angle. It’s nice where we have the blue sky and the clouds in the background; it makes it feel calm. We get the tracking shot again of them moving, as we feel the motion from the KSU.

We a get a different kind of shot where it’s a point of view shot leaving it into a close up. I would say there must be a camera on the KSU to capture the fast and bumpy reactions. We have a much wider long shot of the trees, the land, the blue sky and of the boys coming along in their KSU. A tracking shot of the KSU. We then have a POV shot of Louis driving it. I would say the camera is still on the dolly, but they have zoomed in onto Louis for his reaction. 

 We have a mid-shot of Harry singing, and then of the guys in the blue inflatable things falling over .They look fun to go into. We have a mid-shot of Zayn again singing. Mid- shots of the guys together in the water things falling over again. Niall we have POV side shot of him and then into a mid -shot of him singing with his guitar. He’s got a good voice too.  “Yeah, we'll be doing what we do”. We have long shots of them having fun and messing about with each other. We have a long shot of the guys as well as having other people in the background jumping up and down. I would say this is a low angle shot because where we have the guys bending down into the camera; it probably is by the position of them. Low angles are good for a different angle from looking up to the action .As you can see there are trees in the background, like there folding over them. The colours of the trees are green and pink which is interesting but weird. I like it; it creates a different effect for trees.
We have the guys rocking it out, moving and dancing around creating fun. We have a different mid- shots of the dancers (people) having fun. There’s mid-shots use to capture their reaction too of them enjoying themselves. We have a mid-shot of the guys singing, then over shoulder view shot of them all in a circle. We have Mid-shot of Louis and Liam singing, then to a mid-shot of them all together. They give us more attitude when they sing “Tonight let's get some.” We have long shots of the guys playing football. We have another low angle shot; this shot is different because it’s more from a distance of them all jumping around and having fun. 

I like the shots of where they each jump up in the air. The camera will be positioned high to capture these shots. It just looks fun to do.  We have a side view on POV shot where there all moving their hands to the side. We then get a shot from the low angle perspective of them doing the same movement.

We have them all wet from the pool, with Zayn singing into an inflatable microphone that looks good. He has Louis on the left side of him. We have footage of where they chuck Zayn into the pool as well as seeing Niall having fun too in there. We get a close up of Zayn singing directly and pointing to the camera itself. 

We have footage of them in the pool having fun with the girls splashing about and that. We have Louis where he’s singing, then Liam and Zayn are about to push him into the water. “Live while were Young” .We have all the guys in the pool having fun and splashing around with each other. We have mid-shots of Harry and long shots of him singing directly to the camera with him splashing about. Harry moves closer to the camera with splashing it. We have all of them singing in the pool from long shots and mid -shots. 

We have a Low angle of them again with Harry and Zayn making their point to the song when they sing. We have all the boys jumping up and down with the people. It looks so much fun, like there partying and with them singing together. We get different reactions again of everyone enjoying themselves. The last bit is a low angle where the guys are bending down and Zayn is in the middle singing the last verse of the song “Live while were young.”


The music video is very fun, upbeat, looks like there having loads of fun with each other and messing around which guys are like. The setting of this place was filmed in Kent in the countryside. It sets a nice feel of the video as there out camping, partying and enjoying life with each other. Their voices are good, it looks like they’re having a blast too . It shows the fun of what camping can bring. It can be great fun when you’re camping with your friends. 
They have so much energy when there filming, it makes you want to be part of it. It looks so much fun jumping in the pool, in those flat able ball things looks fun. The weather looks great for them when there filming on set.They filmed this on the 30th September. 
This group of guys is singing live while were young. The guy on the drums sings first and the the other guys join in together.  It's like a rocky version of the song. They create their own bits which they have added to the song. In the background you have the two guys at the front singing the bits of "Whooa!. You have the two guys playing the guitars at the front and the other guy on the drums. It blends in well to the song. You get different shots mid shots, side view shots of the guitar playing. You have side pov shot of the guys singing from a side and you get a bird’s eye view shot from a higher perspective. They have all got good vocals. 

Here is another cover of the song .I like this version , she sings really good. She has a backing track of herself. You can hear a guitar in the background.  She adds a softer feel to the music.

Here is another version of the song . You have the guy on the left who beat boxes at he start. In the middle you have the guy he has a great voice. You can tell he's feeling into the song.The girl on the left , she sings really well together with the guy. The guy on the right tries to sing , but it doesn't go down well.  

Here is another version of Live While Were Young. He sings with his guitar, he has a nice soft voice. He adds his own intake of the song in his style. You can see he is feeling into his song in the way he sings.
