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.

Music, Band and Styling Inspirations

Some artists rely heavily on a genre-led fan base, with a large niche such as Bring Me the Horizon, Pierce the Veil and Black Veil Brides within a part of the popular post hardcore scene, being known for their tattoos and specific type of clothing, eg band endorsed clothes such as Drop Dead being popular with my age group but I would like to keep a broader spectrum open with a cool but mild, wipe appeal type image. A mixture of modern, fashionable urban and a hint of slightly 'hipster' clothing would suit a fresh new band whose image is likable but not extreme nor a major part of them as a band.

Above are You Me At Six and below are Enter Shikari, with a wide appeal in terms of style, not necessarily making themselves specific to genre but appealing to generally teenagers and young adults who like a mixture of genres.

The music I would like to use could be anywhere in the grounds of alternative/indie/heavier rock with an element of mainstream commercial appeal without being 'pop' or too heavy or too niche. Something that an audience can connect with either through being energetic and upbeat, or with emotion-drawing lyrics, or a song with both like Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner. Like with The View From The Afternoon (referenced on semiotic analysis) the music does not have to necessarily relate hugely to the video we produce but would preferably have a significant audience reaction whether it be to make them head-bang and air drum, dance or feel moved. The songs below have a mixture of these but all have effected me in some way while listening, and are all types that I'd consider using for my video.

Some examples of musical style I could consider:
Infectious, unique drumming pattern combined with a rough, rugged style of voice that has been extremely popular for the Kings of Leon.

Fast paced progressive rock that had a huge role in Biffy Clyro's rise to popularity

90s punk that started out being played at small gigs where die hard fans would mosh to, ironically positive sounding with it being about the singer being bullied in childhood

Funk that makes you pull faces and jump around the room with lyrics of a submissive male in a relationship where he is head over heels for his love interest

Lyrics of an abnormal, flawed yet romantic relationship with ironically contrasting upbeat pop punk on this track
