6. Choice of Genre and its
conventions
The main reason why we chose these was because we were aiming to be realistic with ourselves. We wanted to make sure we chose a music genre we could create a for. Other reasons were because of the popularity of the genres and how creative we could create a music video for our chosen genre.
For a couple of days we all tried to decide on an artist to, but we found it difficult to come up with artists who do not have a video to their song.
Therefore when we all got together we discussed our decisions again. We decided to change
Our chosen genre. The genre we concludedon was Grime. Our main reason for
changing our genre is because we felt it would be more realistic to choose a grime artist

8. As UK artists are constantly being compared to their American counterparts, artists often make clear indications to where they originated from.
Tracking shots are a common feature as this allows the artist to show the artist the setting for the video, without doing a simple and obvious panning shot.
Frequent group or entourage shotsare common as a single artist usually belongs to a larger group.
Reference to the artists record label through their clothing line and other merchandise.
Other artists that follow these conventions:

  • Griminal

9. Little Nasty 10. Joe Grind 11. Devlin 12. SkeptaVideos can vary in concept although almost always involve some type of performance; whether it be with the artist on stage or possibly in a tracking shot.
Conventions of
Hip-hop/
Grime Videos
As most videos of this genre are narrative, close ups of the artist or supporting actors face isa common feature. This is to convey to the audience the emotion that the artist wants them to experience.
Dark colours are prominent throughout the video. The artist is dressed in a black sweatshirt with a matching hat. The setting is also quite dark, reflecting the gritty stereotype of London.
A lot of high angled shots make the artist look physically bigger. This creates the idea of a higher status in the industry.
Indication of success and wealth through shot of personal possessions , such as watch and phones.
