Ellie Goulding - Guns and Horses

  • Ellie Goulding (23) is an  English singer, songwriter and guitarist that creates indie and electro pop.
  • She has recently rose to fame since the 2010 Brit Awards after winning critics' choice
  • She is currently signed to Polydor records (since 2009)
  • The video is set in a mystical forrest with white horses, low key lighting and smoke/ mist effect.
  • The camera slowly zooms into Ellie as she is stood in the forrest. 
  • She them starts to walk around and see's soldiers behind the trees and around her (these turn out to be her backing dancers as well).
  • Personally i think that certain shots in the video are really well framed and she makes use of what she has in her surroundings e.g. pushing past tree branches.
  • There is quite a lot of shot variation used within the video to make it more interesting and close ups of Ellie's face are also used to show her expression as she is the most important person in the music video.
  • Near the end of the video everything changes and the 'fantasy' that was there before is dissolved and Ellie turns the camera round to reveal the production side of the shoot to show and everything isn't real.
