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

Today's lessons

As I'm off ill today, today's lessons will be held on Thursday, so take the period today for editing (as was planned for Thursday) and we'll cover the MANGeR topics on Thursday 1st now.
Remember that a full final cut of all 3 texts should be submitted for provisional marking this friday, along with an updated progress checklist (for blog marking), and that all the MANGeR/DCRUP (exam Q1a/1b) + Eval lessons will be MUCH more productive if you've done some initial work on these, building on December lessons/handouts + using blog posts
