The trajectory of my BCM325 project has changed quite a bit since my original pitch.
So far in the project, I have explored our past and current women in leadership in Australian politics and sport.
The next topics I will be researching are the women in leadership roles in the entertainment industry. The media I create will make particular note of prominent issues such as the gender pay gap and the Me Too Movement in the entertainment industry and profile the women who are leading change in these areas. I will also be addressing representation issues and the consequences of this on the future of women in entertainment and the effect on female consumers.
5 weeks ago, I participated in my first ever live tweeting during a screening of Metropolis.
Since then, every Thursday afternoon I have been engaging in live tweeting during a screening of other important science fiction films with the BCM325 Future Cultures cohort. Consider this blog post a Live Tweeting for Dummies – what to do and what not to do.
Live tweeting is a new concept for me and week by week I have evidently improved through trial and error. By critiquing some of my better and worse tweets, I’m going to build a constructive plan on how I will improve my live tweets in the weeks to come.
Before the first screening I formulated the guidelines on what my live tweets should look like based on the marking rubric and the live tweeting prompts provided to us.
As discussed in Ziauddin Sardar’s 2014 ‘Welcome to postnormal times’, it is the now which brings the many possible futures into being. This was the common thread tying all of our possible futures projects together.
In the critique of and engagement with the following project pitches, I drew mostly from Eleonora Masini’s ‘Reconceptualising Futures: a Need and a Hope’. Masini’s discussion on how the visions of a desirable future are embedded in the social structures from which they emerge really stood out to me in our Future Cultures lectures.
The process for my critique was to split a screen with the pitch and an open google document with a criteria checklist. I would make notes underneath each point and then later expand on them using the notes I have from our BCM325 lectures in my notebook physically next to me. Finally I would compare their work to the…
“Business owners must try to adapt strategic choices to match the current internal organisational situation and external market conditions.”
McDowell, Harris and Geho, 2016, p. 1907
Aquilah Productions has become a major part of Bachelor and Communications degree. Whether it be part of a assessment or not, I have been developing it since i was in hight school for a way for me to express my creativity and my professional portfolio.
‘Brands’ notoriously have difficulty retaining interest over time (Preece et al. 2018, p. 331). And, this is especially true for niche accounts like mine and is integral that i must continue to adapt to the continuous paradigm shifts in modern media in order to stay relevant in the current media climate.
This Digital Artefact will be an indirect continuation of a previous project I completed in BCM212 for my #MYCURIOSITY study. This project will look at similar components to my previous study e.g., what is the fast fashion industry and what are the relevant environmental impacts? However, in order to stay relevant to the BCM325 subject, I will be predominately focusing on how these impacts are going to affect the future.
I will create a series of 3 short video essays that will be uploaded to YouTube, this ensures I’m following the F.I.S.T methodology. Everything I will be creating will be fast and inexpensive, as I’m using a platform that allows me to upload freely and with relative ease. Furthermore, the main concept I’ve planned for each video is to answer one question per video, which ensures I am following all the key principals of F.I.S.T (Fast, Inexpensive…
Below you’ll find a video pitch for a Digital Artefact project I am completing in a subject at university called Future Cultures. This subject examines the tensions between representations of our future in popular science fiction films through the ages and our lived realities.
I have been interested in podcasting as a medium for a long time now, and I feel this idea and subject seem to fit well into the project. As both Josh and I are creative writers, it is also an opportunity for us to not only explore writing for this medium, but also get feedback outside of the writing workshops of university. And of course, to build a portfolio of work and online presence.
The premise of the podcast came to me whilst I was listening to a discussion in my documentary class about how we might make a collaborative documentary while our contact is…
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.
I’VE NEVER LIVE TWEETED BEFORE AND IT REALLY SHOWS #BCM325 pic.twitter.com/aJqHIqj0o1 — Caitlin (@chiIdishgaybino) March 7, 2019 This is my FIRST subject that involves live tweeting whilst watching science fiction films and I’ll be completely honest, I become too invested in the films and my tweets are evidently lacking. However, I am continuously learning […]
For the past eight weeks, I have been live tweeting along with my Future Cultures class at UOW enjoying content which related to everything technology, cyberspace and robot. The interactions and conversations that were sparked from these tweets and viewings unpacked discussion on various topics under the hashtag #bcm325.
I seemed to have been writing tweets to engage with contentious topics, however they gain no reaction from my peers. Taking a satirical approach while retaining some intellectual stimulation in my tweets prompted a larger reaction.
The following is a curated summary of my experience within this class with emphasis on the future cultures concepts and ideologies that I have learned throughout this semester so far.
Screenings: ‘Ghost in the Shell’ (1995), Westworld (1973), Johnny Mnemonic (1995), The Matrix (1999), Black Mirror: S2 E1 ‘Be Right Back’ (2013), Robot and Frank (2012), Black Mirror: S3 E6 ‘Hated in the Nation’ (2016) and Blade Runner (1983).
