Checking out other futures

(BCM325 peer comments)

Comment 1:

I first looked at Candace’s pitch which is on her blog Here.

Candace is planning the running of social media accounts for Pottery Box across Tik Tok, Facebook and instagram.

Main comment points:

  • Good links to research into the future growth of Tik Tok
  • Delivery was jarring and didn’t seem particularly interested in the project personal due to the use of a synthesised voice over
  • Pitch video exceeded the Time constraints
  • No real indication of a timeframe of future thinking 
  • I suggest looking into the lecture content for week 3 on trajectories and planning to further integrate BCM325 content into this DA

My learning:

  • good graphical representation of plans and it is probably something I could implement to help improve the clarity of my presentations
  • I don’t have the greatest in depth understanding of planning in terms of short term for BCM325 as my DA is focused further out so I couldn’t give the greatest subject specific content responses
  • Like my own pitch the ending is abrupt and is even longer than the allowed time which means I think its a common thread we both need to improve of timing and ending well

Comment 2:

Next we go to Chelsea who’s pitch is Here.

Chelsea is creating a 5 year plan for Chae an online content creation business. with a main focus of podcast development over that time and continuing with other content.

Main comment points:

  • a good integration of an existing project into a future thinking
  • are you are trying to tackle 2 projects, 1 creating a plan for Chae and 2 forecasting/talking about the future of Chae through your podcast 
  • Good academic and relevant research into podcasts popularity, podcast function and business growth
  • good use of hyperlinks throughout your contextual statement

My Learning:

  • I think this DA idea is similar to mine at first two different ideas where one is more thought out then the other but it has not yet been decided on which DA to stick with but I am glad I chose one and talked this through with Angus (My BCM325 tutor)
  • My academic research is showing to be more and more lacking as I read more of these pitches
  • I could more effective showcase some of my research with hyperlinks in my contextual statement and a bibliography

Comment 3:

Last we are looking at Jack’s pitch which you can find Here.

Jack is looking at the future of music and its accessibility both production and consumption and showcasing this through YouTube video essays.

Main comment points:

  • well structure flow with clear progression through pitch video
  • not really much researching backing links to BCM325 but it does address the future in a general way
  • can easily add academic research looking at past patterns to help identify future music trends and industry articles like this
  • good to hear it has utility for you and those you are producing it for these are the best projects for uni from my experience

My learning:

  • after viewing this pitch I realise my comments on the previous two pitches were lacking comment about audience as neither pitch addressed audience well and that is something I forgot was needed after doing my own pitch
  • Pitch is very reminiscent of my in person pitches for previous BCM subjects and I think their might have been a bit too much focus on aesthetic of the video over subject research which is something I think I also can do a-lot
  • This pitch showed me a lot of the things I am also doing poorly and how easy they are spotted in someone else’s work and how I need to try and be more self aware of these things going. forward.
