Excuse the wrong descriptions of each shot, while editing the text was changed by accident. This my different camera shots and basically it was me practicing what i have learnt and then I put it all together in Final Cut and this was my final result, keep in mind this is my first attempt and it can only get better.

Over around 90 years, women have evolved to not objects of desire but people that can be treated as equal as men , which should have been implemented years ago before now. Over this long period of time advertising using women have changed from propaganda advertising for the war to unnecessary nudity and sexual references on advertisements on television, if you look closely to the video you notice that the women every year show more skin and pose more sexually and erotically, this could be because this appeals to the consumers nowadays? You tell me

Marina And The Diamonds criticizes record label for refusing to release 'ugly' video Maria And The Diamonds #Tick

This statement was tweeted by a famous singer Marina and the Diamonds, apparently her record label denied her to release her new single because she was not pretty enough for it to be released. In my personal opinion i find that this is outrageous, how her own record label would deny her the chance to release a new song. This shows how fickle the music industry is and how if you do not have the correct look you will be "shot down" by the music industry and will have to change your image to stay in the music industry or you rebel against the music industry and be different. 

Up to 4:50 its useful the rest is animations which i was not looking at. Looking at all of these angles and ways to interpret visual images i can now try them out by myself and hope to get even better videos than the ones in this video :D

After doing my plenary in school I then went on to YouTube to find out more about different types of shots and in this video i get another in depth analysis on how camera shots are shown and how I can do them for my media studies course.
