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

12A only: Hwk for Friday 24th

The way the calendar works out, 12A have additional 'red' lessons. Therefore, one additional task to follow from the Thursday quiz (but you can do this now) will be for each group (there will be 4, set up in the Weds lesson) to create 5 new questions, to be delivered as a PowerPoint, from one of the following categories:
  1. History of Mvid
  2. MVid & film
  3. MVid & advertising
  4. Censorship of MVid/controversies
  5. MVid on TV
  6. Music magazines
  7. The music industry
We'll set up the groups + let you pick a topic in the Weds lesson, giving you plenty of time to organise this.
The guidelines are simple:
  1. questions must be reasonable!
  2. if I judge they're ridiculously hard your team loses a point for each over-onerous question!
  3. must be delivered as a PowerPoint file (you will then take over as quiz master to deliver them!)
  4. as this is for period3 on Friday, you should EMAIL the file on Thurs evening or no later than Fri period2
  5. make sure the file name includes your names [ForenameInitial eg GeorgeG] + topic
