Deadlines/Brief

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

WE'RE BACK!
See this week's bulletin on http://www.syfn.org/news
A short, short one from us today everybody. We're back from Portugal and the footage is lovely. You just can't shoot something that looks bad in the Festa dos Tabuleiros. Point the camera anywhere and it's lovely and colourful. Lucky us!

Anyways, here's the latest bulletin to keep your film and media lusts at bay. Lots going on as always. Have a look below at the new competition from MOFILM and Shooting People AND see what Celluloid Screams in Sheffield is looking for this year (both in the COMPETITIONS/CALLS FOR ENTRY section),
Some very interesting news is in our OTHER NEWS section - Creative Sheffield has secured £3million to target South Yorkshire, and one of the areas they will be focussing on is the Creative and Digital Industries - good news for us media people, perhaps. Lots of new jobs on hand too - have a good look and enjoy, folks, enjoy.
We'll be a bit more complete next week when we're back under control with our feet firmly back in Blighty.
Take care,
Rob, Daria and James: The SYFN Team
