In this musical video we see many locations where Eminem seems to be conquering personal demons; so these personal problems would create some exciting and symbolic settings. In this video we also see some computer graphics; just having this in a music video shows how the contemporary videos have moved along immensely.
In this modern music video we only really see one character, and its Eminem playing himself. This I believe makes the video captivating for the audience as they are intrigued to see how the story concludes.
I believe the director would do this to create a sense of continuity, and it also creates pleasant viewings for the audience. Interestingly in this song it is shown as if it was a short story being told rather than just relevant words; as all of the actions link up and sum up the conclusion at the end.
As the video carries on he throws a chair at the wall and a gap appears; Eminem ends up punching his way through the wall and a blinding light shines through.
This I believe adds to the empathy factor, as the audience would feel sorry for Eminem as he has got to a stage where he thinks life is too much; on the other hand he steps back from the edge of the roof and his posture shows he feels confident in himself.
Also we see numerous shots that are juxtaposed between the two settings at the start of the video. I chose to analyse this song as it has a very powerful meaning, as many of his songs do, and I thought the music video would be interesting to study.
What I mainly like about this song is that halfway through, the beat and the words change to more positive words and you can see they are straight from the heart.
I do believe that this song shows how emotional and strongly he feels that he has come along the past couple of years. This backs up that Eminem is getting back to his normal self and he is getting back on the road to recovery.
In addition the next location we see, Eminem is standing on a huge building close to the edge, and slowly creeping closer to falling off.
In the video all of the transitions are straight cut. I believe this would be done to symbolise that Eminem feels that he is unstoppable now and he feels great that he is clean and making his own decisions.
But then in contrast we see him flying through the air as if he is a superhero coming out the better side another man.
I believe it is a very powerful narrative as everything is true, not just a story and words made up for the particular song. This adds the effect that he has recovered and comfortable finally.
Also there is some rage because he is defending his children; there were questions could he handle his children and would he be a responsible parent. Also the locations in this song link with all the meaning that the lines create, for example we see in the first location Eminem is stuck in a small room that is enclosed by thick brick walls.
The main location where the video is set, it is in a huge city in America, similar to New York. Also in the music video he is lip syncing, artists usually do this to smoothen out the videos and also to give off the effect that the audience are seeing the performance live.
In this video the edits seem to be very fast paced, this is typical as the lyrics are fast in the song, so they need to run parallel. He is represented as both a villain and a hero I believe; he is represented as a villain because he is a man of his own downfalls and he describes himself in poor ways.Nov 10, · Help Which speech is this quote from?
