Audience research

Tagret Audience

This is Beth. Beth is a 18 years old and is currently studying media studies, Art and Psycology in 6th form. She recently applied to engage in a photograpthy course at university and her other interests include reading and fairy tales.
Beth is only an example of my target audience, and although my primary audience is young people (11-24), I am still hopeful that the final product will reach wider audiences, which all kinds of interests.

filming proposal for the week starting 28/1/13

Last week, due to the weather and exams, I didn't gain any footage.
This week I plan to:
Monday: Nothing
Tuesday: Establishing shots: I will be gaining shots of the outside of the school, the civic centre and Gladstone Terrace
Rest of the week: Nothing

I am hoping that over the course of the next week I will be able to get at least one of the main interviews completed.

Today, I began to work on analysing style models for my ancillary tasks. This is important as it will give me a better understanding of what to do within my own. I will post my analysis' later today.

Filming this week

Monday and Tuesday: Nothing
Wednesday: ‘Lack of political knowledge’ interview. I will be filming this in school at 1:45 (4th period). I will have Jordan sitting talking to the camera, when asking him general knowledge questions that he should know the answers to. I will also be gaining some opinions from him about the topic.
Thursday to Sunday: Nothing

This way I will be able to manage my time effectivly between this project and work for other subjects.

I have also made th change that I will be interviewing one person rather then a class for the other side of the argument. This is because I felt that this is a more manageable way of conveying the other point of view to the audience.

channel research :)

Today. there are many channels which view documentaries to the general public. One obvious example would be the cutting edge series on channel 4:

This would be a good place to view my documentary as it is somewhere in which an audience would expect to see it.

Plan for the next few weeks

Over Christmas

Over Christmas I have collected a number of clips which I could use for the introduction of my final product. These clips include how young people are portrayed in the media in both possitive and negative ways.
I have also created a first draft of a script for this section.

First draft

Every year, we see thousands of stories in the news that relate to young people in one way or another. We see them achieve their high grades in exams and helping the community, and many seem to come into the spotlight through the various talents that they may possess. But the majority of them show us in a more negative light. The London riots, for example, is just one of the many examples where we can see them portraying the stereotype that many see us as today, but why see us all in the same way? Many young people are over shadowed by this bad light and have started to become more involved in the process of making a difference. And with an increasing interest of the subject being shown in Parliament itself, we must ask ourselves the question... Are young people interested in politics?

This is a section that I hope to last about 30 seconds.
