Simulacra - Intertextuality

Simulacra - is when a sign loses its relation to reality 

I used intertextuality from a variety of videos in my genre and out of my genre. My genre being EDM, I used the original video as inspiration. I looked at the way the singer 'Justin Bieber' sang the song with lots of emotion and also for the dancing parts, I was inspired by the fast paced dancing and the moves used. 

Some videos that I tried to intertextualise for the performance were: 

Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are U now - with Justin Bieber 
Play at: 1m41s

 Below is a screen shot of my singer dancing with similar movements to Justin Bieber, he uses a lot hand motion and moving of the legs. 

Joel Adams - Please Don't Go 
Play At: 1m57

In my music video I used his video to inspire the performance from my singer. I also had my singer sitting down and lip-syncing and signifying that he is upset. 

For the narrative part of my music video, I will be using this music video as intertextuality to my own narrative. Especially the part where the girl is looking at her phone, I will definitely include this into my music video to anchor the break up between the singer and the girl. 
Charlie Puth ft Selena Gomez - We Don't Talk Anymore 
Play at: 3m10s

For the DJ's I intertextualised the music video by Skrillex and Diplo called 'Mind' featuring Kai. This video helped to inspire the DJ's performance and trying to create verisimilitude in their performance and I also used actual instruments.
