NMT and alternative representations
Transcript of NMT and alternative representations
Representations that are not commonly seen in mainstream media products.
Debating this point
NDM often means that media institutions are more accountable to their audiences.
Can appealing to a global audience lead to offering more alternative representations?
If NDM has allowed user generated content to thrive, we will inevitably see more alternative representations that haven't been filtered through traditional media institutions.
The influence of Ndm on Mainstream media
Does NDM encourage media producers to offer alternative representations?
Youtube success can sometimes lead to mainstream success meaning that these alternative representations move into a mainstream space.
Not every youtuber will be a success, and you could argue that the ones who are actually have quite traditional representations.
Is there any difference between Zoella and a disney channel star?
In 2011, Andy Gray and Richard Keys were recorded saying sexist remarks about a female linesman and women in football. The story appeared on numerous websites and newspaper websites, generating comments, blogs and thinkpieces. The audio of the incident was also widely shared online. They were eventually sacked.
A Disney Channel spokesperson told TV Guide that the controversial episode was "developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."
"I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation. They control…so much of what kids think! Life isn't bright sets & wardrobe & kids becoming superstars! This is INSPIRING."
Instances of whitewashing have been widely criticised in recent years.
Ridley Scott's Exodus was strongly criticised for featuring white actors playing African roles. The hashtag #BoycottExodus was trending on twitter prior to it's release.
“I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such,” Scott says. “I’m just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn’t even come up.”
