Instagram launches series inspired by Bowie's final album
Instagram announced the release date for Unbound, a 16-episode series inspired by David Bowie's last album, Blackstar.
Instagram is to delve into the world of episodic entertainment with the release of Unbound, a 16-part series inspired by songs from Bowie’s last album, Blackstar.
The series was filmed in December with Instagram given pre-release access to music from Blackstar so that the creative team could then create its own “visual interpretations of his songs, with no limits or preconditions on his part.”
The Blackstar InstaMiniSeries “takes the audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork.” The Instagram announcement adds that “each episode of the series is sure to capture the imagination of all who experience it and will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning, metaphor and intention.”
Instagram’s 16-episode series will get underway on February 25th with new episodes scheduled for release every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
