Music Video Analysis: Mumford and Sons - Little Lion Man
MISE EN SCENE
The mise en scene throughout the whole video depicts an abandoned country/farm room or stage, with a number of lights draped across the scene in a country carnival fashion, everything seems really old fashioned and slightly southern, presenting quite a folk image to fit with the music.
Throughout, there are long shots of the entire band playing to the camera, putting the audience in the room as if the band are performing to them. Then there are close ups of individuals such as the singer, the other band members and sometimes instruments. The whole entire video is performance focused, there is no story like other videos.
