Representation in our music video

Here we have a long shot of the bands, with the lead singer centrally framed. Our band is composed entirely of male members. This is conforming to the stereotype or idea that rock music is just for men, which in some ways, has become normative. The members also have tattoos and are wearing neutral or dark colours which reinforces their masculinity. We wanted to have this all male band in order to attract an audience as stereotypes sell easily. However, we have a non-objectified female character in the narrative of our music video. She is seen as strong and independent (as she slaps the lead singer). The female character is wearing minimal makeup and has long hair which, allthough not overly dramatic, is still a normative representation
