I am thinking of making a documentary about Queen, in order to take my digree on Mass Media. It must be interesting and original. Do you have any ideas of how should it be and what it should feature?

Try to keep it original and focused on their music. I know many people are interesed on Fred's lovers and crap like that but you could present a different approach.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

A comparison of their music (and presentation) to others of the time would be interesting. And possibly how their music influenced future musicians.

Maybe it would be interesting to focus on how media can make or break an artist....Don't want to be rude or something but it's a bit simple if you just do a documentary with no research-questions to be answered.

And everything has been told about queen already.

So maybe that should be a nice reseach-question. You can compare the power of the media in pop-culture through the years...

and you can always put a little queen in it...(The media burnt queen after they played in south africa)
Queen sold millions of albums more after live aid (which was viewed by 1 billion people-> media)
etc.

good luck with it!
