Bloomsday is a album by Esbe.
This poster is very unique and has a great meaning behind it.
To begin the first thing the audience notice is that pictured in the middle of the poster there seems to be a nuclear bomb with flowers instead of the normal mushroom top that is full with smoke.
The nuclear bomb could represent hate, war but also the end of hate and war therefore some people may say this can represent happiness in some aspects in terms of ending a war saving thousands of lives however ending loads of lives.
The flowers can juxtapose the idea of hatred of the nuclear bomb. Flowers can represent Humanity, courage and freedom. therefore when a war ends this can help with the freedom of the civilization living in certain country’s.
The flowers are pink so can represent sweet, nice, playful. All elements that juxtapose nuclear bombs and the effect of nuclear bombs.
The album that the poster is advertising is called “Bloomsday” The word bloom links to the flowers that are shown on the poster. When a flower blooms, it opens or is open, and when a plant or tree blooms it produces flowers signifying the start of new life. A nuclear bomb could also signify the start of new life as people will not be able to go back to the area of the explosion straight away so have to start there life over at a different city or country.

This poster is from the band Kings of Leon and the main image subverts the audience expectations immediately by just the picture that is positioned in the center of the image therefore it is effective and makes the audience wonder what kind of music is in the album.
The background colour is green is the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment.
Normally the humans ride the bulls however in this album poster it subverts expectations and reality and we see a bull riding a human, this catches the audiences attention and asks question about why the bull is riding the human as the poster does no answer the questions. The poster and how it subverts expectations could link in to some of the lyrics of the songs. To continue the man who is underneath the bull is wearing western cowboy clothes like a cowboy hat and the kind and colour of the shirt. This can portray that the music within the album that this poster is portraying is western or country.
The font of the name of the band “kings of leon” is in capital letters and in a large font. They have done this as this to make their names stand out so the audience
The link to my target audience survey is above. I have not got 100 responses to this yet so I cant analyse the feedback, therefore i am going to write about what I hope to get out of this survey and what i can learn.
My first question is are you male or female. This question is important as i need to get a variation of answers to show that both genders will answer therefore i can understand how they would want my music video to look like.
My second question is If you were watching a house music video what music video style would you be expecting to view. I chose to ask this question because i want to know what style to create my music video and which would be the most effective and look the best when creating a house music video.
My third question is how old are you. I chose to ask this question as different ages will have a different opinion on the genre and the style that I want to create therefore it will be good to get lots of opinions from different ages.
My fourth question is if you were watching a post apocalyptic movie/music video would you be expecting to see a male or female protagonist. This question is very important and is crucial as The protagonist is going to be the only actor in my film therefore i want to know if people would prefer a male or female protagonist.
My 5th question is would you expect to see the artist or producer of the music in a house music video. I chose to ask this question as i want to see whether people think i should break conventions and not include the producer of the music in the video or whether i should should not break conventions and keep the producer of the music in the video.
My 6th question is Would you expect the editing to be fast in a house music video when the tempo of the song is 128bpm. I chose to ask this question as the normal tempo for a house track is 128 bpm so i was wondering how the editing style Should be whether it be fast or slow. I left this as an open question as i think people can explain why they would prefer a certain editing style
My 7th question is How old do you think the actor/actress should be in a house music video. I chose to ask this question as the actor/ actress will either make or break the music video and therefore i would like to find out what the expected age the audience thinks the protagonist should be.
My 8th question is Do you expect there should be a message coming across from the visuals on screen. I chose to ask this question as i want to know whether i should put some hidden meaning and message in this music video that the audience might pick up. If they want a hidden message this could make the music video really good and seem well filmed
My final question is what aspects do you find to be the most effective in a music video. I gave the options of camera, mise-en-scene, editing and sound. these are the 4 most crucial things i need to do well in order to produce a good music video therefore I want to ask the audience which of these they want to be done the best.
