The future of politics: Where will we be in 50 years?

  • MY DIGITAL ARTEFACT IS GOING TO BE A VIDEO SERIES BASED UPON THE CONCEPT OF WHAT THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE WILL LOOK LIKE IN 50 YEARS. EACH VIDEO WILL FOCUS ON ONE OF FOUR POLITICAL STANCES:
  • Capitalism
  • Nationalism
  • Socialism
  • Communism

The key methodology that will be required to complete this task is extensive background research. This includes researching the historical significance of politics and scholarly predictions for politics. It also involves drawing examples from different sources of media (movies and TV) to assist the audience in visualizing the theories and predictions presented in each video. 

Below I have provided an example of my production timeline:

Weeks 4-5Focused on in-depth research into the historical significance of politics, and the origins of the four “isms” in which my project is based around.Focusing on planning some prototypes for video series.
Weeks 6-7Focused on in-depth research into scholarly sources about the future of politics and drawing some rough predictions from these.Starting to develop some predictions to include in my video series.
Weeks 8-9Begin to draw specific examples from media to back up final predictions and conclusions for each video.Begin preparing Beta, ready to submit.Release first video as a “tester”.
Weeks 10-11Release video series and await engagement.
Weeks 12-13Finalise video series based upon feedback and final comments.

Finally, the public utility of my DA can be summed up in a quote from Plato; “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors”.
