Introduction In our current society, the media is a very powerful medium which cultivates the way the society thinks and behaves. At this stage of the political economy, the intellectual mode of production is largely made through the media industry. Aspects such as Hollywood, television and movies, they frame and direct our thinkings and values towards the direction as they desire. In this essay we will study the cultural object of “Glee” to answer how the media specifically television uses the concept of hyperreality, music and hegemony to influence the way culture works. Having the TV series go through the various obstacles faced by being a minority in school, it displays a simulation of how reality is in high school.
While reality t.v. is popular in countries other than the United States, the American culture has come to greatly depend on the entertainment industry to form the viewers’ attitudes and beliefs. According to Nachbar and Lause, “Popular culture is a ‘Funhouse Mirror’ because it both reflects our ‘image’ back to us but also alters our image in the process of doing so” (7). Today, reality t.v. is very much a part of the funhouse effect as these shows reflect the current image portrayed by reality stars while altering American’s image of what is socially acceptable.
Firstly, what is culture? Culture is the sum of the social categories and concepts we embrace in addition to beliefs, behaviors (except instinctual ones), and practices. In my opinion, deals like the Disney-Fox merger greatly influence culture and consumption. There is something inherently unsettling about a single company owning up to 40% of the entertainment market. The documentary titled “Behind the Screens: Hollywood Goes Hypercommercial” makes some solid arguments relating to this.
Advanced concepts observe the communication of society and media, and the role of media literacy in carrying out the changes. Basic concepts: 1. Media create our culture: Our culture and society, even our awareness of truth was fashioned by the images and information we get through media. A small number of generations ago, the storytellers of our culture were friends, people, family, and another people in our community. For a lot of people in these days, there story tellers are through the movies, televisions, video games and the
Television viewers, accordingly, are presented to the broadcast messages both by seeing and hearing. Accordingly, they are more prone to be ruled by the philosophies originating from television projects. Consequently, the primary suspicion of cultivation theory is that the anecdotal adaptation of the world telecasted on television has noteworthy effects on human discernment about reality. Gerbner et al (1978) contend that the dreary depictions of the world introduced on television are developed after some time in viewers' brain and add to the adjustments in the way they see the world. Along these lines, it
It is the stylish and creative style of video that is shorter in length. It give everyone the glimpse of the best moments of the wedding in an intriguing way that will attract the attention of viewers. Features • You get your wedding teaser or trailer that will highlight the special moments of your wedding that you can share with friends via social media. • The videographers are more intrusive in the wedding style as they capture every moment with their equipment. • Your wedding video looks like a movie full of emotions like love, tears (of happiness), and joy.
The media plays a major role in society and how we act. The media is a powerful tool that can be used to change our mindsets, thoughts and behaviors, it has perpetuated many forms of prejudice and discrimination. For example, when a certain stereotype is portrayed in media, such as male superiority over female, it normalizes the whole idea. In the workplace females are paid less, females deal with more domestic abuse and sexual harassment in the workplace. The book states how society influences who we are, what we can do, how we act, what we believe or think about, and—central to our purposes here—how we interact with others (Rusciano 141).
Globalization in Culture - enriching or destroying national identity People are enormously influenced by foreign culture. Reality shows, TV series, McDonaldization refer not only to a cultural exchange, but also to an increasing transnational similarity. Western innovations and ideas are seen as a significant development and they are really a way for the young people to expand their horizons. However, the enrichment of one 's own identity should not lead to the forsaking of national culture and traditions. I often see myself as a victim of Americanization.
2.7 Communication media and related demographic variables Communication as an integral part of all the society, helps sharing of knowledge, socializing, entertaining and gaining consensus through persuasion for the people involved (schramm, 1977). In the process of communication, the role of the mass media is immense. Communication Media emerge and converge with the existing ones in the environment, and with the emergence of new media and convergence of media technology, the patterns of media usage of people inevitably changes (Mangleburg&Bristol, 1998) which puts the knowledge about people’s media use on a moving end. Media studies often show attitudinal and behavioral differences among societies and cultures in the use of media (Bonfadelli,
