Hello, I'm
Matthew Romo (1660) from Group 2. The other embers of my group are Harry Kettenis (0390), Josh Stevenson (0796) and Ysabel Hudson-Searle (0331).

Hopefully navigation should not be an issue on my blog; 'labels' on the right hand side near the top will direct you to groups of posts from specific areas. Research and Planning, Production, and Evaluation work should all be available to see under their respective A2 labels. The other labels will direct you to work from my AS level and preliminary activities for A2.

Also, by clicking on the "Latymer Music Video Blog" link above the labels, you can go back to Latymer's main music video blog where all other blogs from my class can be accessed.

Finally, I hope you enjoy observing and assessing my work as much as I did creating it.

Early Ideas & Inspirations

As a group we have decided to incorporate a mixture of performance, concept, and narrative, with a strong sense of the latter two.

Lighting, Grading and Colours

We agreed that we could envisage low key lighting or/and black and white grading like Waiting Game by Banks with the style of music we wanted to use, as well as a mixture of techniques such as strobe lighting like in Papi Pacify by FKA Twigs. This could contrast with bold, strong colours similar to in the video for Quintana by Travi$ Scott where a silhouetted man dances in front of a red background.


Lots of powerful, intense closeups similar to early in Raleigh Ritchie's video for Stronger Than Ever with a slow reveal of characters.


We all were keen to explore a use of slow motion and incorporating reverse/replay editing also like in the video for Papi Pacify. Double vision effects like in Quintana would also enhance the use of visuals that could anchor the video.

Musical Influences

After discussing what we liked as a group we decided we were fairly broad and open as a whole but liked the idea of the following elements

  • Slow paced trap
  • Alternative R&B
  • Minimalist dubstep
  • Work with gradual buildup of suspense and power
  • Must have a sense of emotion and intensity
