For this week, please analyze a choreographic videos–that is, a video that uses a choreographic performance as its main content. This should be an organized essay, one that integrates research regarding the artist, the music, the artistry, the choreography, and the narrative of the video, but make sure this is indeed your argument regarding the meaning and purpose behind the choreography in relation to the song, the song’s meaning, and the artist. What I want here is for you to tell me what this choreography means for the overall video. 5 pages, double spaced, minimum. Use MLA format to cite the video and any other sources you use to gather information for your analysis.
You can choose any video except Childish Gambino’s This Is America. Please let me know if you have any questions or you need suggestions!
For this series of essays, do some research on choreography as a concept. Get to know the intricacies behind how and why it’s done – not just video choreography, but choreography on television and film as well. With that knowledge in mind, I want you to watch three different videos which use a choreographic performance as the video’s main engine to sell the song that is being promoted in the video. Once you have watched three different choreographic music videos, I want you to critically analyze the whys, the hows, and the whats behind the meaning of each video’s choreography and what the purpose of the choreography is in relation to the song, the song’s meaning, and the artist. This will lead up to a longer assignment next week, so it’s very important for you to know as much as possible about the concept of choreography. What I want here is for you to tell me not what they’re doing, but what this choreography means for the overall video.
