Videography; the process or art of making video films.
The 20th century saw the growth and expansion of videography through a wide range of means, including movies and music videos. These moving pictures represented the latest measures in society and its constant changes.
Videography ended up being so influential that things seen on television would ignite trends and inspire people to make that change to their lifestyles, causing such a dramatic social revolution that even today, we look to our televisions and computers for guidance.
When people need assistance, they relate anything that they are devoting some time to (for example a movie, book or song) to their lives, interpreting someone else’s ideas into their own and further adapting it to their lives. This has become a natural human instinct, and that is how many industries have developed and have become influential and significant.
Fashion saw a large boom through videos, people like Madonna, Cindi Lauper, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and more recently Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and my personal favourite, Rachel Zoe have influenced people through their contributions to fashion through videography.
We saw major fashion eras rise, decline and adapt through videography, and this will continue for years to come! Here are some examples of how we have been influenced by videography!
