DA Pitch:The Future of A.I in the Creative Industry of Film


As mentiond in the above video, I would like to focus my Digital Artefact on the Future of A.I in the creative industry of film over the next 5-10 years.

Artificial Intelligence has already infiltrated many aspects of the film industry. From AI operated camera equipment to sophisticated machine learning services such as “Cinelytic and ScriptBook that mine and analyse keywords attributable to a film’s themes, dialogue and actors… to provide valuable insight regarding which films are likely to be blockbusters – or flops (Farish 2020).

I hope my digital artefact can be used as a demonstration of ‘futuristic details used as poetic devices for exoticizing the present’ (Csicsery-Ronay 2008). My digital artefact will both serve to entertain and to inform audiences about the complex present, past and future of film.

The Future of Korea Dramas BCM325 Pitch

As outlined in my pitch, for my BCM325 Digital Artefact I will be researching the globalisation of Korean dramas, the effect on the current market and what that means for the future. Through the research on the past, present and with forecasting, I hope to gleam at the future of Korea media culture trends. I hope to show my audience that adaption of other cultures media is not only marketable in our own culture but an alternative to innovation and creation of new content in our own culture.

DA PITCH: ‘This Was Predicted!’

All About Jess

For my DA I will be creating a series of blog posts (5 to be exact) where I speculate the future of online identity.

I will be analysing science fiction films that hold digital and futuristic themes. These analyses will be based on Week 2’s discussion on Science Fiction. The idea that


 Scifi is a combination of current/past conditions and imagined futures/ideas directed me to the hypothesis that maybe SciFi has the power to project potential futures. Especially in the technological world.

These analyses will be discussed in my blog posts and within videos embedded in the blogs. All arguments will be backed up by academic research and online articles.

I will also be using twitter to support my blog, engage with my audience, and create feedback loops.

“Identity will be the most valuable commodity in the future, and it will exist primarily online.” – Eric Schmidt (Google Chairman)

DA Pitch: UOWCreative

Upside Down

I have decided to join the UOWCreative team as part of my Digital Artifact for BCM325. I believe that since it is a pilot, the project has everything to do with Future Cultures and will give us the room to imagine how we want to shape an online community that will serve as a bridge for BCM students and the University.

On a personal level, I also believe I can benefit a lot from this program given the opportunity of having mentorship from Marketing professionals. I have a project on Instagram (called @mirameproject) that I want to grow my audience and engagement and this is will be a great chance to learn Marketing strategies to do so.

BCM 325 DA Pitch

My BCM325 Future Cultures DA is going to be looking into the future of camera technology in the next 10 years. I am interested to look at how new technology will assist the modern day photographer. These include bigger sensors, wireless transfer of files via the cloud, and AI inside cameras to assist you.

My DA fits the F.I.S.T principle:

Fast: I have access to information through the internet. I also have access to my camera which I am going to film it on.

Inexpensive: This will not cost me anything.

Simple: I have a plan I am going to follow as outlined in my pitch.

Tiny: This is an easy DA to achieve.

DA pitch – Electric Cars

My DA pitch

Cooper's Blog

For my BCM325 DA, I have decided to try something different.

I want to look at the effect switching from petrol to electric cars can have on increasing our planet’s liveability. Pollution from petrol and diesel vehicles are a huge problem for our planet, and some Governments have realised such and enacted policies to make the switch to electric vehicles mandatory in future.

Personally, I’m not too experienced at either podcasts or video blogging, but these are currently the two methods of delivery I’m considering to deliver my research and DA.

You can find my video introducing the project idea below.
