History of music videos.

  1. 1. THE HISTORY OF MUSIC VIDEOS
  2. 2. 1894 Still images were projected on to a screen as a live performances of song were played. A example was the Little Lost Child. The images would project the themes and emotions of the song.
  3. 3. 1926 Talkies were created. These were short musical films featuring dancers, singers and bands. Along with Talkies, Spooney Melodies were made. They were a series of short action musical films showcasing the popular music of the time.
  4. 4. 1930 Musical films were created. These were films where music and songs were intertwined into the narrative. Screen songs were cartoons containing songs which the audience were encouraged to sing along as the lyrics were on screen and a ‘bouncing ball’ kept them in time by following along the words. People began to perform and dramatize songs.
  5. 5. 1940 Promotional clips of mainly jazz bands saw them perform on movie band set stands.
  6. 6. 1956 The introduction and rise in television also encouraged a rise in popular music. The format of the television exposed new stars to more people.
  7. 7. 1960’S Rock and Roll started to become big, it was appearing on the television a lot and when big stars couldn’t appear something had to replace them. This is where the Beatles started the trend. The first music video is considered to be Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan.
  8. 8. 1964 The Beatles made a motion picture for ‘A Hard Days Night.’ It was one of the first pieces of media that would have been classed to help music videos evolve. It was a mock documentary that had clips of musical performance, which I suppose was one of the first videos that had narrative and band performance within it.
  9. 9. 1965 The Beatles released 10 promotional films to help them advertise the release of their album. Other artists started to experiment with this form of advertising and created their own. An example is Pan's People dance to Bucket T - Jan and Dean. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL2_71UvADg
  10. 10. 1970’S In this era music videos became more experimental and creative. This idea if done right became very popular. Queen Bohemian Rhapsody was an example of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ9rUzIMcZQ Another Example is Life on Mars by David Bowie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v--IqqusnNQ
  11. 11. 1980’S In this era music videos were becoming hugely popular, in some cases the music video was more popular than the live performances. Madonna’s Material girl was very much like a film, and a musical influenced by the ever so popular Marilyn Monroe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNSUOFgj97M
  12. 12. 1981 MTV was launched. It was and still is to this day a 24hour programme showing music videos to a large audience. By mid 80’s music videos were central in the music market. It made stars over night like Madonna and Duran Duran.
  13. 13. 1983 Michael Jackson’s Thriller was released. Though not the most expensive video made- Jackson held that record later in his career- it still cost a huge $1 million to make. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOnqjkJTMaA
  14. 14. 1985 VH1 was launched. This programme catered to a older audience and showed softer music.
  15. 15. 1992 Directors were beginning to be noticed as they were noted in the credits of films and videos.
  16. 16. 1995 Michael and Janet Jackson holds this record with Scream a video that cost $7 million to produce. The most expensive music video of all time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0P4A1K4lXDo
  17. 17. 2005 iTunes was launched. This software allows you to download music off the internet very easily. There was 1 million downloads within 20 days of it being launched. YouTube was also launched this year. It allows you to watch videos for free, online. This encouraged the promotion of music videos even more, and allowed new artists to create a career in music.
  18. 18. 2010 Lady Gaga overall music video views reach 1 billion. Her song Poker Face has 375 million alone. The total number of music video views reach 34 billion, with 183 million viewers.
  19. 19. THE DEVELOPMENT IN STYLE AND BUDGET. It is of no surprise that music videos have developed so much over the years with different genres picking up conventions and a certain style of video. It also isn’t a surprise that films budgets are within the millions and can cost as much as a good film. Artists aren’t afraid of spending big to get a video out. Duran Duran flew around the world for his music video Rio and George Michael hired some of the worlds top models of the time. However not all videos have to have a big budget. Cheap technology now means that videos can be made on any budget. OK Go’s A Million Ways was filmed in one of the members back yards with a budget of £30. The video was a hit sensation and was downloaded over 9 million times. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1_CLW-NNwc
  20. 20. DECLINE Music videos aren’t being watched on television as much as they used to due to a increase in other technology and platforms such as iTunes, YouTube, tablets and phones. Lily Allen is a good example of someone who is being established through the internet.
  21. 21. DIRECTORS A lot of film directors work within the music industry first as it is easier. For example the director of George Michaels freedom went on to direct se7en and fight club.
