A Level Music Videos

The students in our A Level Media Studies music video production unit have created three amazing music videos as part of their course.

We'd love to know what you think of them, so we thought we would add them to the website for you to watch.

We're looking for feedback on the following aspects of each video:

  • Camera work: shot types, angles and movement
  • Editing: cuts, transitions, graphics and sequences
  • Sound: diegetic and non-diegetic sound
  • Special effects: graphics, make-up, stunts and green screen
  • Mise en Scene: Props, locations, composition, lighting, costume, performance and movement

Please post your feedback, including any constructive criticism, in the comments section at the foot of the page.

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."

Thought for the Week


"Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people."
