Week 6 project pitch (Greg)

This week our main focus was proposing our project ideas through a pitch to the entire class and out tutor. This was where we stated our decided themes and two formats to tell them and why plus how we intended to research our theme with which methods of doing so.

Whilst we were listening to some of the other class member’s pitches we took notes on the strengths of their ideas, what they could improve on and how we could contribute to their project ideas.

(Unit 9 1.1)- When it came to my pitch I presented to everyone my idea of the theme of obsession regarding digital technology, my chosen formats of article and photos, my research methods and how I will manage my time using a production schedule. When it came to the feedback it was mainly to do with how I would present my theme using my chosen formats. I told everyone that I was considering a photo journal but Scott told me that it would probably be better to do it as two separate pieces because the article combined would almost ruin the ‘show, don’t tell’ purpose of the photos. This also made me think about time-management since I could focus on each one separately- possibly the photographs first since they could help give me ideas for the opening 25 words of my article. The class also helped me gain ideas for photos I could develop to show my theme. Elliot suggested to me of having numbers of hours above each person’s head who’s playing a video game or who is on their phone which was a brilliant idea for me since it could show the contrast between what is fun gaming, slightly more obsessive and a pure addiction.

More feedback came in response to my theme itself which everyone thought could be digital technology itself rather than the obsession side due to how much more I mentioned technology than obsession. However, I still decided to keep obsession as one of the main sub-themes for my project which didn’t change to many of my intentions but still fitted in nicely with the feedback I received.
