Friday 13th 2017 Homework

Finish off your timeline of the history of marketing in Hollywood. Due Tuesday 17th.

Find out what the traditional marketing methods were, plus any innovations as the industry developed e.g. the development of new cinematographic technology in the 1950s or William Castle’s shock tactics when TV was threatening Hollywood power. Trace the development of marketing innovations through the digital age e.g. when the first viral marketing campaign was launched (which film, institution, audience?). Don’t forget the case studies you already know about e.g. A Field in England. Put your knowledge in context.

Tip: Use the bfi website.

Problems with the WordPress page editor

There was a problem earlier with editing one of our blog pages, and WordPress say it’s to do with the number and size of pictures we’re adding.

We’re not going to change the way we work, but I do now have a solution, if the problem comes up again.

So if you’ve logged-in to WordPress, but then find you can’t edit a page, let me know and I can give you a special link which solves the problem.
