Research and Planning: Breaking down lyrics to make a video

One of the main parts to a music video is creativity, berng able to look at the word and produce a music video around then. Therefore to help enhaucne are creativity our class got given the lyrics to produce a storyboard for.

Deep in the past
We can trigger to the barrel blast
On the avenue
Where I would crash into you

What's done is done and life is a gun
Life is a gun on the run
Oh my dear, isn't life a gun
A story shotgun that came undone
We came undone

New York's cold
On the road we became old
Standing still
But I'm running against all my will

The well won path
Was never something I would walk
So lay it down
Lay these guns in the ground

Our idea was to set the video with in New york on an abandened street, so the feeling of a apocuypse streets, we got this idea from the line 'New York's cold' then from this we planned to have men matching down the street in US cold war uniform. The video was to be set in black & white but with the men in colour. With the video also in slow motion.
Once we shared our ideas with the class we heard the song and had to change or build on our narrative. so we desided to not have the slow motion as the song was up tempo, and have the men droppiunbg their guns, as for the colour in the video we had the colour from black & white slowly fading into colour.
This is the offical video.

After doing this task it has given are group some idea towards our main task video, so do indie genre and maybe shot in an abandon place or building.Furthermore we also got ideas from others music videos for example 'kasabain, empire' and ' delphic, the momentary' as there both show video with dull colour and similar story lines.
