Notes - Part two: Technical codes - Cinematography

The way that the cinematography is used and how the particular images are sequenced will have a significant impact upon the elucidation; of the narrative or concept. Different cinematography concepts can exemplify and convey specific meanings for the audience.

Camera movement
Shot distance

Camera movement is essential when capturing the movement of the performers (walking, dancing). The cinematography can create a dynamic perspective to the stage performers (the camera can circle the bands performance). The ambience/surroundings are revealed can partially convey parts of the narrative which can perhaps be synchronised with the lyrics and visuals.

 Camera concepts such as close ups can reveal particular insights to the viewers, for example, the band identity. The band identity reveals various characteristics of the performers and the origins of the band. An example of particular cinematography concepts revealing the band identity to the viewer can be the school boy costume which a particular AC/DC performer wears during stage performances. 
Close ups and other camera shots can emphasise a sense of intimacy for the viewers; this could convey a connection for the viewers due to the personal features which the performer and viewer share. Personal features which particular viewers can relate to from the genre/category. Specific elements help to capture particular groups of people which creates the target audience, which can be exaggerated in the narrative/mise-en-scene.
Various features can help establish the target audience for the performers/band due to the aspects which the viewers and performers share.
