A2 prelim l3 history of music video 1 from pre-edison to ready steady go with notes

  1. 1. Things you should have done/be doing… - Opened your A2 Media Studies blog - Started your textual analysis of a ‘Pre-birth’ iconic music video of your own choice applying Goodwin’s Conventions of Music Videos - Started to think about who you may work with on this practice piece (this doesn’t have to be the same people as AS or for Y13)
  2. 2. AIM: Understand the history of music videos, developments in technology and changes in popular culture Starter: Come up with a list of developments in technology that have changed the way in which music videos are produced and consumed.
  3. 3. Just over one hundred years ago…music used to be just a band performing live to an audience.
  4. 4. • Invented gramophone c1900 Thomas Alva Edison
  5. 5. The Jazz Singer 1927 Half silent movie; half musical. First talking movie. (4.15) Mammy TootToot Tootsie
  6. 6. The Gold- diggers of 1933 • Elaborate production and choreography but recorded onto film. • Seeing big productions on a cinema screen for the first time. • Depression-era - idealised glamour
  7. 7. Alexander Nevsky 1938 Sergei Eisenstein (Soviet Russia propagandist film-maker) Score composed by Sergei Prokofiev. First time soundtrack specifically commissioned. First video that set action to music (not just a live show)
  8. 8. Fred Astaire -Big stage star but was a bit old for the arrival of film. -Bringing musical and big stars into film. Top Hat 1935
  9. 9. ‘Fantasia’ Disney (1940): arguably the first ‘music’ video. Walt Disney was trying to get his audience interested in classical music by making a cartoon to go specifically with the music.
  10. 10. Gene Kelly Singin’ in the Rain Focus on dramatic context. Peak of musical films. Huge stars out of singers and dancers. (1952)
  11. 11. Leonard Bernstein (1961) TV well established. Stage musical based on ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Musical into film. Officer Krupke Reflects other societal changes (the ‘zeitgeist’). - Birth of rock and roll - The concept of youth culture/rebellion
  12. 12. Arthur Crudup Explosion of Rock and Roll, youth culture and the idea of the ‘teen’. Young people could identify with Presley and a sense of it belonging to them. Able to make ‘black music’ mainstream.
  13. 13. Ready Steady Go! Live performances in order to ‘sell the band’ – usually miming. Dedicated specifically to music. Record companies started to see the potential in the commodification of a band’s image for TV. As they were miming it gave the illusion of performance. It was broadcast from August 1963 until December 1966. (ITV) RSG! artists mimed to records but by late 1964 some performed live and the show switched to all-live performances in April 1965.
  14. 14. (1964) Very early music video Specifically designed to sell the band, camera shots used to focus on the artist and cultivate image.
