Redundancy and Entropy

Redundancy - is that which is predictable or conventional in a message... Redundancy is the result of high predictability. 

Entropy - is unpredictability.

Taylor Swift Video -
Taylor Swift has a high redundancy because she has the type of video you would expect from an artist from her genre. There always seems to be a boy in most of her videos and if there isn't one she is singing about one, another item she tends to have in her videos is her with her friends which is shown in the video "22".

Yo La Tengo Video - 
 Yo La Tengo videos have more redundancy then entropy because the video I watched which was "Today is the Day" is them surfing, on the beach and also a campfire on the beach, all of this I think is normal and which you do see in some places of the world.

Ok Go Video - 
The video I think has a high entropy because you don't really see running machines lined up with 4 men dancing on the treadmills and pulling random moves. The video is quite quirky which you would expect from a high entropy video.

I think the video in which I will make will be more redundancy then entropy. I might add a little bit of entropy to make the video a little more interesting and slightly different but redundancy does seem more obvious from some of the ideas I have had.
