It’s called “InstaMiniSeries” and, as you might have deduced from that name, it’s an Instagram video-powered “channel” similar to a TV series. As Pitchfork reports, “Last fall, David Bowie gave the channel early access to his album ★ for a set of visual interpretations of its tracks, titled UNBOUND: A ★ InstaMiniSeries. Bowie invited interpretations ‘with no limits or preconditions’ [in order to take the] audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork. The series is propelled by a focus on this visual interpretation of the ★ album as opposed to a literal, linear narrative.”
Starring in the 16-episode series will be Tavi Gevinson, actor Patricia Clarkson, and others. Nikki Borges (director) and Carolynn Cecilia (writer) produced and Lawrence Peryer co-produced.
