Song Title: Stigmata
Genre: Industrial Metal
Primary Audience: Male 15-24
- There are religious references in the video such as the cross at 0:14. This common convention that I have noticed in several industrial metal videos, such as 'Nine Inch Nails - Closer'.
- Footage is slowed down at 0:22 for a long take, to signify a flashback.
- Live band performance footage is used frequently (0:50).
- An interesting POV shot is used at 0:44, we experimented with a similar POV shot today (6th December) during our sample filming in Ilkley.
- There are a lot of shaky, fast moving camera shots used, for example at 0:54, this helps signify the live performance setting. Blurry footage is also used for the same effect, for example at 1:06.
- There is a change at 1:12 in the video, as the camera erratically zooms in and out and shakes, this is to fit in with the double bass drum beat which kicks in at the same time.
- Sped up footage is used at 1:26, to signify the atmosphere of the live setting, this features again on many occasions such as at 1:34.
- Footage of machinery is shown at 1:45, linking in to the 'Industrial' genre, as songs from this genre often feature the sound of machinery.
- A very unusual section of this music video is from 2:08 to 2:21, where very fast pace editing is used to cycle through many different eye shots, which links in to the lyrics: "The look in your eyes..." This is a similar idea to a scene that we are planning to use for our music video, which is where our protagonist is in a room full of iMac computers, all with the illuminati "all seing eye" on screen.
Here is a link to the official video, as it can't be embedded.
