MEDIA CRITIQUE (VIDEO) MEDIA IN EVERYDAY LIFE Fall 2010 • 15% of your course grade Due date: December 2 (Week 14) Return date: December 14 (Final Exam day) ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY Work with one or two partners to form a production team of 2-3 people and produce a 3-5 minute video about the media environments of everyday life, drawing from the memes and themes covered in this course. DETAILED SUMMARY • This video critique provides you with the opportunity to combine your creative and production interests with the memes and themes you have learned in this course. You must work in teams of 2-3 (no more, no less) and the video must be 3-5 minutes in length. This is your chance to be creative and enlightening by taking what you have learned and putting it into a multimedia format involving visual imagery, written/spoken narrative, and/or music and effects. • You should treat this as a chance to produce something for your portfolio: a short video, film, or documentary that you could show to a future employer. The TAs and Professor Vacker will submit (with your permission) the best videos to the competitions for the BTMM awards ceremony in Spring 2011. We will screen the top 10 in class on December 7. Your video can follow any one of four formats: News Story: this format is like any news story you might see on CNN, Temple Update, or any other news network. Documentary: this format is like any media-oriented documentary. Ex: The Merchants of Cool (PBS 2001), The Persuaders (PBS 2004), Digital Nation (PBS 2010), No Maps for These Territories (2000), Super Size Me (2004), An Inconvenient Truth (2006), The End of America (2008), etc. See Netflix, YouTube, or http://freedocumentaries.org/. Video Artwork or Short Film: this format is more like a work of visual art, yet has clear meaning or tells a clear story. Ex: Koyannisqatsi (1982), Naqoyqatsi (2002), Space Times Square (2007), Doll Face (2007), etc. See Netflix or YouTube. Music Video: this format is like almost any music video, with one exception – it has to convey ideas from this course! You must use original music, or music for which you have documented permission to use, or music which is in the public domain. Your video must include at least
