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

HWK: Blog on MVDay shoot

You should be aiming to take some photos and record some quick behind-the-scenes snippets with your comments and showing YOU in action. This post could be done as a vodcast...

Blog on:
  1. your specific role and responsibilities, and how you performed in carrying these out
  2. if you had to chip in to help others, discuss this
  3. if you came across problems, discuss these (did you come up with creative solutions?)
  4. how do you think you performed compared to your classmates?
  5. did anyone else particularly impress you/did you learn from how anyone else worked?
  6. did you see others clearly performing the duties of producer, director, choreographer?
  7. what dis/advantages are there to shooting over an entire day as opposed to multiple short shoots spread over several days, possibly weeks apart?
  8. what was the toughest, most challenging aspect of the day?
  9. what was your best contribution to the day?
  10. what was the best contribution by anyone else to the day?
  11. what did you enjoy most about the day?
  12. if you could go back a week, what would you do differently in preparing for the day?
  13. if you could restart the day, what would you do differently?
  14. if you had one tip for a Media student doing this event next year, what would it be?
