    ...
    A subculture is defined a social group within a national culture that has distinctive patterns of behavior and beliefs. The predominant explanation for the formation of subcultures lies within the theory that they form as a collective opposition to the dominant society. The core ideology behind subculture is to differeciate themselves from the dominant culture. The group are functionally unified by a single belief the given culture is based on. The concept of subculture often focuses on the differences and awareness in style, whether it be music, fashion or other areas. In Dick Hebdiges 1979 book, "The meaning of style" he states that subculture is a subversion to normalcy and that subcultures bring together like minded individuals who feel neglected by societal standards or other external influences, and thus then allow themselves to develop a sense of identity. They have a distorted and somewhat ambivalent view on general society and more often than not have distinctive mannerisms, activities and interest that may not serve a conform to main stream society.
    Subcultures invert the usual standards of society to be considered as distinct from the norm. Subcultures are defined by man different connatations including status, style, ethnicity or other factors. The negative connations that arise from the idea of subculture is its opposition to societal values and its non conforming so social class. Subcultures, with specific emphasis on the studies into youth subculture, generally are considered degenerative and deviant. Subcultures serve as a contradiction to conventional style of society.

    Welcome to the Creative Media Dundalk IT Wiki
    This wiki will start as a project for a 4th Year module on the BA(Hons) in Communications in Creative Multimedia and the BA(Hons) in Video and Film Production, Current Issues and Theories in Creative Media Industries. We hope however that it will become a useful resource for all students and staff within the department.
    The initial entries on the wiki are ones which the 4th year students have deemed to be some of the most useful and complex terms in Creative Media. If you have something that you would like to explain or add to please drop us a line so you can be invited to contribute to the wiki.
    Please make sure that you reference all of your entries and follow the departments guidelines on academic integrity.

    The French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) was a term coined to describe an artistic movement that occurred during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s in France. Although never a formally organized movement, the pioneering ideologies of the French New Wave can be attributed to a group of film critics from the famous film magazine Cahiers du Cinema.
    In the early 1950’s Cahiers du Cinema

    critics such as André Bazin, François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Éric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol, and Jacques Rivette began to release articles riticized mainstream cinema, classic Hollywood and French linear narrative films, and the safe, unimaginative style French filmmakers had adopted. Cahiers du Cinema soon proposed a new era for filmmakers, which would reject classical montage-style filmmaking in favour of mise-en-scene, and furthermore step away from the generic style of filmmaking by encouraging filmmakers to create films that were a personal artistic expression and bore a stamp of their personal authorship, much as great works of literature bear the stamp of the writer.
    The style of the new wave can be attributed to innovations and changes that occurred in social, critical,

    economic and technological backgrounds. Visually the New Wave strived to unsettle the spectator which was achieved in various pioneering ways such as handheld camera work, breaking the 180 degree rule, jump cuts, disjointed narrative and frequent changes of the pace and mood. A low budget was another common trait in the New Wave movement, which shared similarities with Italian Neorealism as stories were set amongst the working class, shot on location and often used non-professional actors.
    The French New Wave was a cultural phenomenon that helped reinvent and strengthen the French national cinema. Internationally the movement would affect American cinema, and the generation of American filmmakers of the New Hollywood era, such as Altman, Coppola, De Palma, and Scorsese.

    The 'creative industries' (sometimes referred to as the creative sector) is the term used to describe "those industries which have their origin in individual creativity, skill and talent which have a potential for job and wealth creation through the generation and exploitation of intellectual property" ('UK Creative Industries Mapping Document', DCMS, 2001). Some of the sectors that are regarded as being part of the creative industries include radio, TV and film, design, music, photography, advertising, crafts, software development, publishing and architecture.
    The creative industries is seen as an alternative industry to the industrial industry. The main differences between the two seems to be that while the the industrial industries main focus is on physical labour, the creative industries main focus is on mental labour. The creative industries is a relatively new industry in comparison to the industrial industries.
