The following music videos (below) are sources of inspiration for our music for their different assets they have in each video and how it influenced our work. For instance, video 1 has a lot based on visuals, which is an important factor when considering how to keep your audience engaged, and how far we can really go to keep them interested. The visuals of this video vary from a close-up of the vocalist Brendon Urie mouthing the words, but this is coupled with various other clips of disturbing imagery that generates an atmosphere of a satanic cult brainwashing, a departure from the song’s theme and lyrics, but is ambitious and creative enough to mesh together and retain a high entertainment factor.
Video 2 has synergy with the Movie Suicide Squad, so it’ll something of narrative to begin with. In looking into this video, we focussed on how realistic we wanted to make the story, as the vocalist Tyler Joseph acts as a prisoner, in the same location as the characters from the film. later in the video, he escapes and performs the song, but at the end of the video, he is alone and surrounded by guards, as if the performance never happened. this detachment was considered, as we’ve thought of having the characters be vampires, adding a hint of the supernatural, that same detachment from reality.
Video 3 is one of our largest inspirations, as it retains something of a developed plot, and was a video found by typing into YouTube “Vampire music videos”. Already, it acted as an inspiration for us, as the video allowed to focus an engaging story, despite the fact our track is an instrumental.
