The way they use paint in this video is quite interesting and while the lyrics don't really match the visuals I think the way everything is expressed through the dripping paint walls is quite intense.
It is an idea I'd quite like to put into my own video.
While this idea is not for definite, the idea of colourful paints does give of a positive mood and tone, while the ones in the video are quiet dark, which can symbolise death and blood etc, those connotations fit the bands star image, as they are a rock band, that is something you would expect.
As our music video is an upbeat, positive song, the paints we would use would be a lot brighter with positive connotations, while in this music video, it is dripping like blood. In our music video it would appear to be more of a playful setting.

The four of us in the group will briefly appear in the music video with the lyrics on a card but we plan to wear similar outfits;
- Bright coloured tights - We will all wear a different colour, the tights will be bright so it will contain connotations of happy and positive themes. Which match the lyrics and tone of the song which will be playing in the background.
- Black dress or skirts - so we don't colour clash!
- We have also now considered just wearing white tank tops against the coloured walls, to refrain from clashing, to match each other and also as we plan to have mid-shot camera angles, it's doubtful the coloured tights will be seen anyway.
For the hair we are all going to leave it relaxed and natural as its a happy video.
Likewise for makeup, we will wear what we usually wear, with muted colours. So we look natural and relaxed, if it were a serious song our hair and make up should reflect this. But as this is an upbeat song every aspect of it should be happy and carefree.
