Thank god the tedious task of researching and writing an annotated bibliography has pretty much come to a close.  I found a couple of feature articles that, while I guess were kind of interesting, didn’t exactly further our group’s targeted subject: Film Festivals.  The best articles we found were chapters from university film text books (surprise, surprise) which were incredibly comprehensive on the topic of festival planning and how the film selections illicit and impact an audience’s response.  It is for this reason that we have basically decided to base our artefact on Film Festival Programming.

So today’s practorial had us brainstorming ideas for what our artefact is actually going to be and we have come up with a couple of options and backup plans.

  • A short and snappy news snippet type production of ‘What’s on in Melbourne” focusing on film festivals and interviews with film festival-goers
  • A podcast with similar qualities
  • A feature article
  • A series of vlogs surrounding the film festivals

We’re hoping to create a hashtag and ideally get it trending to hear the public’s thoughts and opinions on their experience with the film festivals.  By next week’s meeting we’re hoping to have a drafted script/structure to work off.
