Video Deconstruction Beyonce- Best thing i never had
Song: Best Thing I Never Had
Producer: 'Babyface', Antonio Jackson
1. Fade in, mid shot of Beyonce in white lingere in a white room with bunch of white roses in background. Mucis starts straight away and B starts lip-syncing Cut to CU of B looking straight at camera. CU of B holding white rose. Pan to mirror long shot of B walking towards mirror.Cut back to mid shot B stood infront of chairs. The camera looks to be more of a video recorder rather then a high tech camera which is normally used in videos. Low angle shot of B looking at herself in mirror.
2. Cut to B lying on bed still in underwear but now wearing a veil. High aangle shot. B rolling around on bed. CU. Extreme CU of B's face. Cut to B outside in a open field in a huge white wedding dress and veil. Establishing shot of lake with sunset in background. Mis shot of B sat in front of sunset.Camera pans as Beyonce sits up and becomes long shot.
5. Narrative enigma- As B gets down the aisle the camera pans so you dont see the mans face, ths is done to creat suspense. You are led to believe that the man in the video of the prom is the man she is marrying but you get a shot of the mans face and you see he is a different guy.
