I showed my music video to some friends on Facebook. They left me the following comments:
scenery suited the genre stereotypes
lip syncing good, sometimes slightly off
slow paced editing matches the speed of the song
got a little repetitive
needed more locations
This tells me that my target audience were positively affected by the video, they agreed and understood the conventions of the genre that I used. It is also quite pleasurable for them, they enjoyed the shots that I used, for example one person said 'like the use of props and the tree shots'. They are taking a preferred reading.
However, if I were to remake or edit the video, I would take more varied shots in different locations, as my target audience suggested. I think that it is important to use suggestions from your target audience as they are the ones who will share your text and get it seen by more people. I would also spend more time on the lip synching, so that it can be a good match all of the time, not just some of it.
