Everyone should be working on their evaluations now. We need the print advertisement, news article (both 250 words) and the major write up of 1200 to 1500. These must be finished by Friday. You must also finalise your log sheets.

The magazines look fabulous and I will upload them shortly.


Media Ethics Essay

In class today we discussed regulation and self regulation of the media industry in Australia.  This was taken from Chapter 6 Australian Media Institutions pages 111 to 113. We then discussed the media ethics essay which is attached.


Edited Copy

Your edited copy of the news articles need to be downloaded. The highlighted text in yellow means that this section needs reworking. This could be either spelling, sentence structure or rewriting the conclusion.

Evaluation of Representation Films

Following deadlines when working in the media is crucial, particularly when you have a newspaper, magazine or tv show that needs to be printed or screened on a specific date. However, it is not always easy to meet deadlines.

  • Describe some of the problems faced when constructing your short film that hampered your ability to meet the deadline.
  • What would you do differently to ensure that you met the deadline.
  • Download this evaluation sheet and fill out. You will need to keep this and put into your portfolio for external examination to be sent to the TQA.
    Representation Evaluation

Filming Representations

We all know that media footage can be manipulated. You can edit conversations that will take something out of context. You can add audio to make footage appear to be more serious or lighthearted. You can have a voiceover that manipulates what people are actually doing in the footage by saying they are doing something else. You can shoot video to make something look darker or lighter to portray moods. You can even get people to act out or dramatise an event and then manipulate audiences to believe it is real.

In this task you are going to create your own representation of Marist College. This can either be a good representation or a bad representation.

The video can be presented in the following ways:

  • You can present this footage as a series of photographs with audio, voiceover and subtitles to create in moviemaker,  photostory or premiere.
  • You can use a digital video camera and create a video with audio and sound.
  • You can create a mashup of photographs, video and sound using free online software

To complete this task please follow the list of steps:
1/ form a group of no more than 4 people
2/ Download the log sheet and fill out (MediaLogSheet2011)
3/  Decide how you want to present this material – look at the Vuvox site if you are interested in a mashup
4/ Discuss and take notes of what you are going to film/photograph/record
5/Create a storyboard (storyboardtemplate)
