Example 1 Name of band and track Track name -Iron Man (Black Sabbath)
<ul><li>Star Image of the Band </li></ul>The style of this band is punk-rock with three attractive, dodgy and butch women playing drums, electric guitar and bass. The lead singers of this band are two casual and alternative men in order to bring attention to the girls playing the instruments. The fashion for the women would be: chains, short ripped tops, tattoos, dark and heavy make-up and piercings.
Treatment For Music Video <ul><li>The main character of the video relates to the song as if she were the “Iron Man”. She is an evil woman who we see from time to time brutally kill a man, such as: smashing heads into walls, snapping arms, smashing them into the floor, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>There will be cuts to her and the band depending on the tension of the music: if there is a guitar solo, there will be a cut to and fro the guitarist and the actress. </li></ul><ul><li>The idea of the evil woman killing the man and having a hardcore female band is: </li></ul><ul><li>A reverse stereotype of the male murderer killing the helpless woman </li></ul><ul><li>A reverse stereotype of the male band </li></ul>
Example 2 Track Name -All I Could Was Cry- (Etta James cover by Beyonce) Name of band and track
Star Image of the Band The lead singer of the band is a very 50s fashionable typical woman. Her style is very Marilyn Monroe: over-dressed, rolled up hair, too many diamonds, red strapless dress with matching red gloves and hot red lipstick and an alcoholic drink in her hand while she is singing. The rest of the band is blurred in the background since the focus of the song is on her story. They also adopt the 50s look: a piano player, bass player and maybe a saxophone.
Treatment For Music Video The concept of the video is as simple as the song: the lyrics talk about how the singer can’t stop crying over a man who has left her for another. It is quite comical because it shows an over-exaggeration of a woman suffering over a man. The cuts will all be on her in different scenarios, such as: lying on a piano, sitting at the dinner table by herself, singing on stage in a quiet bar, etc.
Example 3 Name of band and track Track name/ Angie- Rolling Stones
Star Image of the Band For this band, a very casual-indie look: leather or denim jacket, glasses, un-shaved, dirty shirt and messy hair. In a way they should reflect the Rolling Stones. This band is not trying to sell it’s image, however they are selling their music.
Treatment For Music Video This video shows the importance of this girl “Angie”. Throughout the video, she will be shown with the lead singer having romantic moments: laughing and kissing on the grass, bed moments, him sniffing at her ear and neck. Then it will cut to him singing with the band in an isolated, sad and dark atmosphere and then it will cut to the mini-orchestra in the back to remind the audience that they have to also appreciate the music together with the storyline.
