CW - Shot Idea 2
One aspect of finding ideas for the music video difficult was in promoting the band without the aid of the actual band itself. For this we came up with a simplistic and blatant technique that we thought would be quite effective. Our idea was to have the words ‘The Shins’ or the bands name and song’s name on various objects that the characters use. This could be extended and be used as a link between lyrics and visuals, as important lyrics could also be written on places that the character goes to, or on objects he/she uses, e.g. on the ball and chain that George and I are planning to use ‘The Shins’ could be written on it, or ‘Split Needles’ could be written on one character’s name tag if we planned on using one.
