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.

Filming opportunity: Monday school Olympics

Mr Daly has just asked me to find a Media student to film snippets of the day's events - as we'd be after decent quality footage, this could perhaps be a two man job: go out with both tripod and 'FigRig' and both HD cameras. You could possibly even borrow the boom mic to.
You'll all be in the process in writing UCAS applications and/or CVs; if you haven't already, you'll be hearing your tutors constantly reminding you of the importance of being able to evidence a positive attitude that makes you more than an exam-passing machine, and high-profile voluntary roles like this are a great means of boosting your UCAS apps....
I need a name/names asap...
