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. Posts are primarily written with Media students/educators in mind. Please acknowledge the blog author if using any resources from this blog - Mr Dave Burrowes

Standalone Company blogs

[Cross-posted from AS blog]
I've mentioned that you could think about creating separate blogs for either of your companies and/or the film itself.
That wouldn't be a major production, and whoever sets up the blog can add the others as having the right to post to this blog.
An example from last year's AS:
Jonny Hughes and Joel Colborne, whose psychological thriller opening you saw at the film festival, added links to two blogs at the top of their main blogs: see Jonny's.
These are for their company Vertigo Cinema and their film A Bat in the Belfry.
You can always ask these guys for ideas!
Other past examples include Ellis Clark from last year's A2.
