Week Six: Ghost in the Shell (Oshii, 1995)

                      Ghost in the Shell (1995) Review – Coogs Reviews

Another first for me, as I’ve never enhanced myself in a Japanese animation film. From the beginning to the end of the animation I instantly noticed the repetitional theme and idea of what it means to be truly human. This theme is so strong that it is parallel in every sci-fi film we have currently explored. Undeniably the future is always changing and I think these movies, especially this film teach us that so is the human condition and what we deem to be “more human” each day.

It was surprising to see that a film from 1995 could open up so many discussions into this exact idea from a philosophical context, as ‘Transhumanism’ was the major theme that this film projected. I posed several questions from what makes us fundamentally…

Brief Re-cap:

In her BETA video and blog, Isabella stated her DA being all about the Future of Virtual Reality and how by this stage she had managed to find both secondary and primary research through a survey and Reddit discussions to help compose her first blog. 

She had stated that she had received great discussions and responses from her primary findings and was now at the stage where she hadn’t received much feedback from her first blog, even after posting about it on Twitter.

Self-Reflection:

Reading through her blog, I found it easy to suggest possible feedback as I had done a similar DA on Virtual Reality in my second year, in the Game Media subject. Although mine was about VR in the film industries, I noticed Isabella’s DA topic was quite broad, as she was just focusing entirely on ‘the future of VR’. 

She…

You BETA be ready.

J U S T J U L E S

After a couple weeks since the project pitch project, it’s quite exciting to announce that by the BETA stage of this project I have managed to upload 2 different videos that will make up my 3-part series called ‘Predictions or Reality’.

This series is a Digital Essay which will focus on the current situation of how social media platforms and organisations are utilizing contemporary tools, and importantly, what the future of social media looks like, and how far we have already predicted and witnessed such trends as digital natives.

BETA Video:

So by this stage, I have now uploaded my ‘Introduction’ video to my whole series, which became a new aspect of this DA in terms of iteration. I decided to take on the feedback of several students as you can view in my BETA and expand my DA audience to any media user or professional and create this introduction…

Tweet & Film Away: Weekly Screenings: Part 1

Week One: Metropolis (Lang, 1927)

Metropolis (1927) – Deep Focus Review – Movie Reviews, Critical ...

This screening was most likely the most difficult to adapt to at first. It was week 1, I managed to walk into class over 15 minutes late, and without realising, I walked into this movie, and honestly, I had no clue as to what was going on. I was welcomed back to the twitter-sphere, something I was so used to yet something that still managed to become more new and extensive each year in my degree.

Metropolis instantly reminded me of Charlie Chaplin quiet films mixed with Great Gatsby, which another student in the class confirmed. And as the movie continued the 1920s time frame and industrialism scene was set and continued to expand with all sorts of imagery, from religion, gender stereotypes, realism and future technology predictions.

Brief Re-cap:

After viewing Elena’s pitch and reading through her blog it was clear she is part of the newly added, UOW Creative Internship. She mentioned her new role running and working on social media accounts for UOW themselves, such as their first-ever Tik-Tok account, which she was assigned to manage. 

Her role extends to a moderator, content creator as well as marketing, but she did regularly mention that the current COVID-19 Pandemic will disrupt the regular daily plans the UOW Creative team planned for their social accounts in terms of promoting the University campus. 

Self-reflection:

With the majority of Elena’s pitch discussing the possible delays and ruins of potential plans of her role, I did find it quite difficult to engage with her pitch at first. But as the subject is all about the ‘future’, I tried to embed a source that would not only…

Social Media Hot Trends: Predictions or Reality? Future Cultures DA Pitch

J U S T J U L E S

Pitch Video: 

Concept:

2020 is now a reality, a wild one if you ask me but either way, I have decided to take a personal interest in this season’s DA by focusing on three specific hot-take trends for the future of Social Media marketing, which are all surfacing the internet as we speak, and in my opinion, are becoming a soon to be a reality as I type this very blog.

Audience:

I am intent on centralising my DA across fellow BCM peers, as well as any person who is involved in the social media spectrum of things, especially millennials and media-savvy individuals, as we can all learn, inspire and agree from these 3 predictions for future culture shifts.

In my pitch, I mentioned and displayed several sources that are featured across marketing hubs, universities as well as academic sources that all entail the future of social media and marketing…
