  • 1. Lyric Deconstruction How To Be A Heartbreaker

2. When we were thinking about constructing ourmusic video, we thought it would be helpful if wedeconstructed the lyrics to the song in order to tryand put some ideas together that would help usmeet the expectations of our audience. Forexample the expectation of our audience wantinga relation between what they see and what theyhear. Although this may not be the casethroughout the whole of the video, it is just one ofthe ideas we are thinking of carrying out to try andplease our target audience. 3. Throughout the song there is a carried on themeof the artist giving the rules of how to be aheartbreaker. We will construct our made uptheme of using fridge magnets with stop motion tomatch the lyrics when Marina goes through eachrule.Rule number oneWe thought it would be an effective and differentway to show to the audience, and also look goodwith the stop motion. 4. Is that you gotta have fun But baby when youredone you gotta be the first to run- We will change this to show the storyline of theartist spraying her interest in love with silly string,then running away. We chose silly string because itwould be associated with fun, and then show theartist running away because it matches the lyrics. 5. Rule number two (stop motion with fridgemagnets).just dont get attached to somebody you could lose,so le-let me tell you- Here we will show the artist on stage lip syncing tothe lyrics. We chose to do this because it will havethe artist as the centre of attention which was one ofthe factors we found common in singer songwritervideos, and also our target audience researchshowed our target audience to expect an element ofperformance. 6. CHORUS X 2this is how to be a heartbreaker boys they like a little danger wellget them falling for a stranger a player singing i la-la-la-love youhow to be a heartbreaker boys they like the look of danger wellget them falling for a stranger a player singing i la-la-la-love you- The chorus will involve plenty of jump shots from the story lineof the artists love interest, to a white background with a group ofpeople throwing paint and making a mess. We chose the paintscene, because it matches the lyrics of rule number one beingabout having fun. Also using the love scene will follow thecommon idea of singer songwritersongs being about love, and also match the titlewhich clearly introduces the song being about love, heartbreaker.The paint on white backgroundidea was inspired by Florence and the Machine,Dog Days Are Over. 7. at least i think i do- Stop motion repeated with the words.Instrumental- Show the artist and a boy being together, holding hands etccause i la-la-la-love you- Show the artist singing this to the boy.Rule number three (Stop motion with the letters)Wear your heart on your cheek- We have chosen to take numerous pictures of our artists cheekwith different coloured love hearts on, we will then incorporate stopmotion when showing this to add a creative effect. It also matchesthe lyrics which is a common idea I researched in the music videodeconstructions. 8. but never on your sleeve unless you want to taste defeat- Again a stage performance showing our artist lipsyncing.Rule number four (stop motion with the letters)gotta be looking pure kissing goodbye at the door andleave them wanting more more- Cut again to the storyline of girl and boy, however thistime saying goodbye to eachother and kissing at a door,with the girl shutting the door in his face. Through splitscreen we will show both emotions of the characterswhich will be the boy looking upset and confused, andthe artist looking happy with herself. 9. CHORUS X 2this is how to be a heartbreaker boys they like a little dangerwell get them falling for a stranger a player singing i la-la-la-loveyou how to be a heartbreaker boys they like the look of dangerwell get them falling for a stranger a player singing i la-la-la-loveyou- Similar to the last chorus with the people messing around andpartying, this is to ensure the same theme is carried throughout.at least i think i do- Stop motion repeated with the words.Instrumental- Show the party scene again.cause i la-la-la-love you- Revert back to where we left the two characters at the door,then show the girl opening the door and singing the lyrics to theboy. 10. CHORUS X 2this is how to be a heartbreaker boys they like a littledanger well get them falling for a stranger a playersinging i la-la-la-love you how to be a heartbreaker boysthey like the look of danger well get them falling for astranger a player singing i la-la-la-love you- Party scene shown again.Instrumental- Show the romantic love story as a whole.cause i la-la-la-love you- Show the artist singing this to the boy.at least i think i do- The artist will finish the video by looking into thecamera and singing to the audience, which shows theartist to be breaking the fourth rule; perceiving thevideo to be quite daring.
