Music videos are so 80s/90s, right? They belong with the era when MTV screened wall-to-wall vids instead of 'reality' TV? Try telling that to the millions who bought Gangnam Style; were they really simply loving the music? 1.6bn (and still climbing) have viewed the video on YT, not to mention the many re-makes (school eg, eg2), viral ads + celeb link-ups (even political protest in Seoul) - and it doesn't matter how legit it is, this nightmare for daydream Beliebers is making a lot of money, even from the parodies + dislikes. All this for a simple dance track that wouldn't have sounded out of place in 1990 ... but had a fun vid. This meme itself was soon displaced by the Harlem Shake. Music vids even cause diseases it seems!
This blog explores every aspect of this most postmodern of media formats, including other print-based promo tools used by the industry, its fast-changing nature, + how fans/audiences create/interact.

IFEST - the 'Media bit'

OVERALL AIM: To produce a filmed documentary + a blog featuring many aspects of the day, including 'vox pops' + some brief interviews
RESOURCES: Your wits, charm, camcorder, still camera, cinematographic + photographic skills, pen + paper, a copy of the IFEST programme, + some class time after the day to bring the results together
YOUR ROLES: In pairs, pick out any ONE (more if you wish!) aspect of the day you'd like to produce a short (up to 5mins) edited piece on (including some vox pops and/or interviews), as well as a typed blog entry with some still images
SITUATIONS VACANT - EDITORIAL POSTS: We will need to appoint two pairs to an additional role, that of (i) editors of the documentary and (ii) blog editors
More details later, but editing means not just compiling the submitted footage, but deciding on how to present + link this: thinking about options such as presenter, subtitles, graphics
