It's finally here :) Aside from your Culminating Assignment (which you should be thinking about...), this should be your favourite project this semester. Your task over the next week is to choose any appropriate video from the 1980s and re-imagine and recreate it in your own vision. Just like the 1980s, the video is as important (if not more) than the music that is is representing.
A few sources to check out:
The Best 80s Music Videos (according to Billboard Magazine)

What does this have to do with film studies? A lot of very famous directors got their start making music videos. Who knows, maybe one day we'll all look back at your project and reminisce about where it all started!
