RS - June 2011: A2 coursework begins!

This week we have begun work on A2 media and this year we are studying Music videos. We have only had two lessons so far so not a vast ammount of detail has been gone into however we have come away with a few early codes and conventions of a music video

    Here is an example of a music video having a detailed story almost like a short film. Being 13 minutes long it would seem youths would get bored however this video having a very large audience of over 85 million people (views on Youtube) prove this wrong, a short film can be very sucessful in a music video.

    In the first lesson we have learnt that music videos first emerged from the introduction of MTV (Music Television) in 1981 and debuted The Buggles "Video killed the radio star" a very ironic title.
