Final album Cover

This is the final version of my album art. It has changed from the early drafts that had a emphisis on the black and white theme that resembled the rest of the website. Through having the colour remain in the art it acts as a call to action that the audience can see the album and have it stand out. The dark colour of the bird gives of a better contrast for the website and the other brighterbackground colours that further create an ideaology of having that artist seperate from the rest of sociaty, represented here through the contrast in colours.

Audience feedback 5

The newest edit of the music video has tesed very posotivly with audiences, the new inclusion of the new narritivly focused shots and the overall arching narritive plot and structure to the music video has been praised by various audience members. Once again the profomance aspect of the video was praised as well as the lighting used during those profomances. 

The costume disign was also praised for the ease of accessibility to the viewers understanmding of the narritive and plot. The black suit was correctly identified as a funeral suit as well as the mise-en-scene of how all the shots took place in dark locations to personify the proformers own emotions as well as to connect the lyrics and the visuals.

Update: April 7th 

The new narritive shots are now about 30% compleate, many of the ideas and repersentations listed in the blog below have been or will be filmed to use in the final product. Not all of these shots will serve strong story perpose but will have strong meanings and representations along wiith them that will benifit the mise-en-scene of the video and create a stronger represenation of the artist for the target demographic to identify with and the imagary that has been shot will be stronger idenifiers that will be editied into the first draft. 

I also must remember to kepp the manings and representations simple enough for general audeinces to understand. Due to audience feedback the idea for the Raven bird to replace the Magpie bird has been instituted as they felt that even though the Magpie technially had stronger represenattions it required too much background infomantiion and explanation in order for the audience. 

Next to film will be represeantion scenes with meanings that can be deconstructed by audinces at later dates. Nartituve scenes have been shot butg it is unlear weather they will be included in the final prouct.

Finding the ideal album art.

The album art will have to corraspond to the title "Birds Eye View" as this is what's done in all the analysed examples, I will be looking to obtain a picture of a Raven bird. (This task should'nt prove too difficult as the raven bird is a common bird found in the area). However getting a close up of the bird will be a challange. Also having to obtain the picture.

Audience feedback #4 

The audience feedback on the preliminary idea for the album art and theme they found it "A little confusing" finding that without the explanation I provided it was too complex to peice the puzzle together, However a member of the audience suggested an alternative represenation for the album that would work better. 

The audience felt that the Raven species of bird has stronger representations of death and can also construct the same meaning and represenation surrounding the idea for the magpies. The represenation of death and funerals and all the other connotations that I wanted from the other represeanation. 

This will of course need an imediate change to the albums name which would've formally been "Magpies". The new name of the album will be "Birds Eye View" this is representitive of the artists persona as if he is looking on ohers from the titular birds eye view creating the themeatic link that establishes him as seperate form the audience.
