Realism as Authenticity in music video

First, your task is not to argue whether a musical form, song, artist or video is or is not authentic. For our purposes, there is no actual authenticity behind an artist or song or set of images; your job is to recognize at the outset that authenticity is always a matter of codes. Thus, you are asked to analyze the means by which claims to authenticity are made in music, just like Peterson and McLeod do. Try to examine the criteria of such claims, what is at stake in county music according to Peterson? What are behind claims of "keeping it real" in hip-hop as described by McLeod? Your primary task is to examine the televisual codes and conventions that express authenticity like hand-held cameras, sepia tones, black and white, camera work etc. Many popular music genres sell authenticity as part of the package that is sold with an artist, band, album or song. Examine the package and the packaging process.
