s you should by now know, this blog is designed to offer support as you progress through your Advanced Portfolio.

If you are struggling for inspiration for things to research or ideas for your own construction work, start by having a look at other blogs. The links at the bottom provide access to blogs from previous years, and the link to Long Road Media (below) allows you to have a look at some of the work produced by other schools and colleges. Remember, however, that these are not necessarily perfect examples; some may offer inspiration whilst others may show what not to do!

In terms of research, consider...

  • Professional videos
  • Amateur videos (YouTube etc)
  • Different musical genres
  • Directors
  • Intertextuality - links between videos and associated albums, posters, websites etc
  • Your song choice
  • Lyrics
  • Possible settings
  • Actors
