I have chosen to do Media Studies because I have an interest in Music, Fashion and Films.
Instead of just watching films, I would like to know how they are made. The processes that are needed to make it into a film and the media side of fashion.
I read a lot of fashion magazines, from VOGUE to GQ to Nylon and Vanity Fair. I think that Fashion has really become a part of our culture, its not just for celebrities with money anymore. Its become a part of everyone of us, it makes us what we are. How we present ourselves to others.
When it comes to Music, I like pretty much anything. I like bands from Kings of Leon to Lady Gaga. I think that Music is also an important part of our culture because it is involved in our lives everyday even if we may not know it. You might be watching an advert and a song comes on, or you could be listening to your iPod or listening to the radio in the car on the way to school.
I'm the same when it comes to movies as well, I like anything really. From Horror to Comedies and Romantic Comedies. One of my favorite films is 'Mean Girls', it wasn't the story line that made me really like it, it was how it was used in conversations at school. People would reference back to the movie like calling girls who wear too much makeup 'Plastics' and it is just so memorable. It is one of those movies that you just can never get tired of, like 'Titanic'. I have watched that movie like a gazillion times and still, it doesn't bore me!
