A recent mini series on BBC 3 highlights the absurdity of the Vloggers we are all so involved in on youtube. Using mockumentary (bricolage of documentary and parody) it highlights how the industry works. Lots of self-reflexivity as it shows that it is making a documentary on Vloggers but also shows how highly self-reflexive Vloggers are (shows the sound boom, shows the camera, includes the outtakes and how they bend, play with representation through editing, post production and distort time and space etc). It is subtle because you have to be in it, to get it i.e. culturally competent to get the nuance references and jokes.
A postmodern take on a postmodern phenomena! Great example of how postmodern media plays with time, space and the audience.
Have a look at it – it made me laugh, especially Episode on Health and Beauty.
