Here is a list of all the props that feature within my video and my reasons for including them.
Guitar-This will be my main prop for my male protagonist as it builds the narrative of the story and his character. It represents his musical background and links the two characters together. Moreover, I think by my main male protagonist having an instrument it gives his character a stronger narrative.
Camera- This is the main prop for my female protagonist that aids to her story and develops her character. The camera is the way I link my two characters together as the narrative is supposed to be how they meet each other through both having a passion for something in the arts. Hers is photography whilst his is music.
Backpacks- In some shots of my performers together in London, you can see they both have a backpack which connotes travelling. This also highlights them as being quite equal as they’re both carrying a bag not like a stereotypical image of a man as being strong and carrying all the stuff whilst the female does nothing.
Hat and Scarf- My female performer is wearing a hat and scarf in many of my shots whether they’re close ups or long shots. I believe this gives her character some form of identity possibly how comfortable she is with the boy as she isn’t wearing a hat in quite a lot of the shots with him. Moreover, it links to my theme of Autumn and Winter as she’s dressing in warm clothing.
