Black Mirror Review

Black Mirror Review

Black Mirror is a contemporary series on Netflix that illustrates the implications and impact of technology in a modern reality concept. Each episode is different and dont follow a specific narrative as they dont link with each other and due to the length of each episode they are classed as short films.

I really like the postmodernism effect they have and the deep meanings they convey as they really make the audience question the use of technology platforms which is a huge implication of our modern everyday life. This links to my postmodern classwork as it reflects our online and offline self and elaborates on ‘IRL’ and each episode is like a different and new hyperreality and simulation on the impact of different technology institutions.

I conducted a focus group with a few people from media course and with people who have a passion for music so I could get an opinion on my music video and how I can constructively improve for my final draft.

From this question I can gather that my continuity and narrative flows smoothly and that it makes sense to the audience. Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 14.34.16

The most popular answer to this question is that people had an issue with a certain performance shot of the guitar scene which has made me go back and watch it a couple of times so I can establish what to use instead.

I conducted a small focus group to get the opinions of my digi-pak from my target market  to get their opinions and recommendations on how to improve.

I decided to experiment using effects on photoshop as one of my peers suggested to develop it by making it look more interesting it however by conducting this I have come to realise its made it more difficult to read so I will be using my previous draft as that looks the most effective.

I decided to include an image of my artists to create a recognisable image for my artist.
