Music Video Ideas? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Really struggling with ideas for my Media Studies coursework this year. I'm quite behind and want to start ASAP, but can't come up with many ideas...

    The music video would be narrative-based (so no shots of the actual musicians (see 'Lover Of The Light' and 'Take Me To Church' for examples)).

    My topic is 'representation of men', so I have to portray men as either stoic, sexually-driven, dominating and cold, or go against these stereotypes (I'd rather go against).

    The song is a shortened version of 'Black Flies' by Ben Howard.

    Any ideas?? So far I've come up with:

    - Man looking after sick elderly relative, struggling to cope. Maybe has to turn to illegal activities to fund medicine/upkeep etc.

    - Man living in squalor, alcoholic, struggling to cope with losing custody of child. Something happens which encourages him to change and try to do right by his child. Flashbacks of playing with child throughout (might not fit the song)

    - Sick elderly man wanders out of hospital/retirement home and goes walking across rural areas (fields, beach etc.). Imagines/hallucinates people from his life?? Need to work on this one a bit
