Exclusive David Bowie x Instagram Mini Series Premieres Today
If your reaction to this headline is, "Wait, what? A Mini Series on Instagram? How does that work?", you are not alone. With the rising trend of various platforms' owning of original content and our society's increasingly shortening attention span, however, the concept makes sense. The 16-episode mini-series "Unbound: A Blackstar InstaMiniSeries” is premiering tonight at 8pm EST on Instagram.com/InstaMiniSeries and is InstaMiniSeries's fourth project."Unbound" will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the late David Bowie and the production of his recent album "Blackstar". The record ranked on top of the Billboard charts shortly after it was released on January 8, which was Bowie's 69th birthday, and sadly, two days before his passing. The iconic musician allowed Instagram to follow and record the making of his latest masterpiece and to "create their own visual interpretations of the songs, with no limits or preconditions on his part.”Watch the trailer on InstaMiniSeries's feed here: http://www.instagram.com/p/BCFfiJUlXn- and check back for the premiere later today and new episodes to follow over the next few weeks. Sure, 16-second episodes may still seem a bit short, but if there is one thing that David Bowie and Instagram have in common, it is certainly the ability to communicate in glimpses of art what cannot be conveyed in thousands of words.
