  2. At the end of the day, whatever creative license is used is subject to
    the entirely subjective judgements of artists and viewers. Using
    differing formats within a programme can be appropriately finessed. It
    can be used for emphasising a change of atmosphere and for other valid
    reasons, such as indicating that the camera operator is an amateur with
    handycam etc. I haven't seen the Globetrekker series, so I have nothing
    to say about that particular programme. My point was that there are
    films that use such visual techniques in an entirely pretentious way
    which merely scream out naive bollocks. Every now and again a fad
    arises for doing something that's already been rejected in the past for
    being bollocks. After over 100 years of film making and some millions of
    films/videos/TV programmes every possible technique and style has been
    explored several times, consequently the only really new and cutting
    edge elements for those seeking to mark their unique creativity as
    original artists are through new technology (mostly to do with CG and
    virtual reality) and more importantly new content, of which,
    thankfully, there's no end.

    Much of the pop video techniques currently filling hundreds of hours of
    sad music channels are becoming so cliched and boring, along with the
    preponderance of banal, mindless and masturbatory music performance that
    goes with it, that their core audiences are now between the ages of 9
    and 15. The sort of techniques that impress or amuse children though
    just won't wash with cognisant adults. Mere style will never equal well
    crafted content.

  3. Ahh, there was a good doco on Anton Corbijn last night on MTV.
    Pop video can be very exciting :)
