KM - Example of weak music video "Coldplay - Yellow"

Artist: Coldplay
Song Title: Yellow
Genre: Alternative Rock
Director: James Frost

Vocalist - Chris Martin

In my opinion this is a very poor music video, there is no shot variation, as the whole four and a half minute video is one continuous shot tracking backwards. This continuous shot could be justified if there was some dramatic change in mise-en-scene through the video, such as the colour changes, or things appearing and disappearing in the background behind the singer as he walks along, however the same non contrasting, dreary colours are used throughout, with the exception of the very end of the video where it gets slightly lighter due to the sun-rise.
