- ̗̀ tv show analysis ̖́-
I have chosen to analyse a popular tv series shown on NBC called 'The Voice'. The series is incredibly popular on social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Instagram. The four judges are very active on their personal accounts and tweet real-time about their favourite contestants and experiences on the show. This is advantageous for the series as it is free advertisement to millions and millions of followers due to the celebrity status of the show's judges.
"A strategy for increasing Internet traffic related to a single show is the placement of hashtags on the screen during dramatic moments of the show, for example NBC's reality competition The Voice places #TheVoice on the screen during the part of the show where contestants get eliminated."
Viewers will feel more connected to the show because of their ability to comment on a video or image. Audience participation is a widely used technique to gain even more ratings and views for 'The Voice'. Their Youtube Channel features 'behind the scenes' videos as well as short trailers and mini-games, this is an effective way for the show to market themselves as it appeals to audiences of the younger generation who have an easy access to social media. Not to mention audience voting is a huge factor of the show. Audience can vote online for their favourite singers and their votes are the deciding factor to whether the contestants go through to finals or not.

The make that I have chosen to analyse is a video uploaded by 'catcreature' or annabelle on youtube. She has plenty of 'Do it yourself' tutorials on Youtube and I believe her videos have a lot of visual appeal due to the simple editing and minimalist style for example, Annabelle utilises a simple white background and font. This video is very methodical and she puts the step markers so that viewers don't get confused. I believe her content is aimed more towards teens and adults as these sort of DIY's are popular amongst the teenage age group and it would interest them more than children or elderly.
