Paper Lights: Genre Research and Music Video Analysis

In this section, I will look at Paper Lights music video for On your way. I will analyse the Style of the video, along with the general attitude's that are portrayed throughout.

The first concept that i've noticed within the video is the use of Bokeh.(The visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens) This gives the video an feel of relaxation and an atmosphere that is especially alternative. 

Another feature that ran throughout the video is the use of Bokeh within overlays. This creates a highly cinematic feel to the video. It also creates the idea that it's more about the music than the artist's themselves, something that i've found to be a convention within this type of music.

Something else that adds to the feel and atmosphere within this video is the use of cut away shots. This breaks the performance aspect of the video and adds a more conceptual feel to it.

The video itself is below.
