Idea for representation #4

sky lantern (simplified Chinese: 天灯; traditional Chinese: 天燈; pinyin: tiāndēng), also known as Kongming lantern or Chinese lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. Airborne paper lanterns are called sky lanterns, and are often released into the night sky for aesthetic effect at lantern festivals. ... The last is known as Buddha's Gastronomy; the large and extra largelanterns used to decorate temples and for show at festivals.Made of paper, the lantern, called lampion here, is the main focus of attention of thecelebration as it symbolizes the wish for a bright future. In addition, the Chinese believe that while red is a symbol of happiness, gold is a symbol of wealth.

The idea of the lanterns is too show loss and isolation from my artist, this shows how the artist is alone and "letting go" of his loved ones as the narritive constuction in the music video will show.

Idea for representation #3

The Idea of Balloons as an idea for representation took some exploring however I believe that I've come up with a sutiable idea. 

Balloons are synonumas with the fact that once you let them go they float up into the sky never to be seen again. This idea ties into the lyrics of the song as the lyrics say "if you love me don't let go" and of course "Hold on to me" I'm currently deciding on wether or not to have writing on the balloons. If I was to do this I would have the Balloons say "Don't let go" in order to link between the lyrics and visuals.

Further ideas surrounding the magpies

The Magpie bird is indicative of loneliness and sorrow (see ideas for representation 2) however upon further analysis the magpie may serve me better as the theme for the album cover. The shot I would have desired for the music video would've been quite hard to obtain however I could still have the desired effect by adding a theme to the album title or cover. With artwork of the birds of something similar I could have the same effect and a strong theme of representation like many other artists.

Audience feedback #3 Survey feedback

With the results I've collected from my survey I've concluded the following things

1.  Many of the participants didn't think that the music video was significant in their understanding of a music video, with an average score of five. 

2.  Many of them watch music videos on Youtube (If hey watch them at all)

3. They are engrossed in  music video by the artist/performer

4. Oddly enough that the storyline in the music video does matter and when they watch the music video they feel it helps them be connected with the artist.
