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

F6 Access During Hols

I'll come in from 10am-3pm Weds + Thurs next week so you can upload/edit work, do general blogging, and get quick feedback (enabling further reshoots as required during the hols).
Progress generally has been much slower than expected, and we need to switch to exam preparation very soon after half-term, so I encourage you all to make good use of this opportunity and move towards completion in this time.
I'll add a further post later today with some revised deadlines, especially as regards Evaluation, which will now follow on from exam-centred lessons (you can apply learning from these to your Evaluation Qs).
