Location ideas 

Primrose hill sunrise facing east 23 november 

small allyway with one lamp by kentish by the police staton 21st november sunset at 16:04 

The idea of this shot is connoted with the ideaology of the sunset, it represents the end of many things obiously it shows the end of the day, however the sun and by extention light is asocieted with many posotive attributes, we have seen throughout many things that the sunset can represent loss of hope and represents loneliness and isolation, these themes will most likly be included in my music video.

Genre of the song/ conventions

Unsteady By Xambasadors is a member of the 

Alternative/Indie genre 

The conventions of this genre are that the profomance is shown in the video, this adds an additonal layer of authenticity to the music video that many fans of this genre are there for. 

However many songs in the Alternative/ Indie genre have genre conventios detailing and expressing the views of the artist, themes of family and loneliness are ever present, this will be exploited with shot types and the acting of the profomer.

Update:September 2017

the current working idea is to use the song unsteady by X ambasadors for my music video 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0lw3qylVfY

This song has a very slow melodic tone that is easy to sync up editing and easy to lip sync with, the first peroblem I forsee is learning the lyrics this however would'nt be too much of a problem. Secondly the level of acting required may be a challange for myself. What is see in my head is an emotinal peofomance that capitalises on the links beetween lyrics and visuals but the high bar i've set the actor (myself) will be tough to overcome. And the final problem I currently forsee is differentiating my music video from that of the original I have some ideas on ways I could do this but I have to further establish these ideas.  

Another idea i've thought of is to have the video setting in a graveyard we show how alone the actor is in the video I could also have the people of his past come into the video and fade out like ghosts thusly representing the shatterd psyce of the actor.

A more Symbolic approch has been recomended which in turn would allow for some of the perviously mentiond things to still be involved however creating symoblism would be harder but would allow me to subvert the genres codes and conventions and take more ofan abstract look at the song.

Lyrics 

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Momma
Come here
Approach
Appear
Daddy
I'm alone
'Cause this house don't feel like home

If you love me
Don't let go
If you love me
Don't let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Mother
I know
That you're tired of being alone
Dad I know you're trying
To fight when you feel like flying

But if you love me
Don't let go
If you love me
Don't let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
