Engaging with Media 1 through my Blog

Since I started this course, I have been encouraged to think in new ways and make connections between everything I do in class and the outside world. I think that one of the reasons that I have learnt so much this semester is that our learning is highly practical and relevant to the current media climate.

I believe the following blog posts best demonstrate my engagement with the course, both inside and outside the classroom.

This post is a reflection on my first project brief:

This post marks a turning point in the way I thought about the editing process, sparked by the course reading “Blood in the Gutter”:

This post is made up of my notes from a particularly interesting lectorial on “narrative”, presented by Dan. I have also reflected and made comments throughout:

In this post, I brought back the concept of “noticing” from one of our early lectorials, and used it to think about all the things I had noticed, at different levels, as I worked on a performance I was involved in this semester:

Finally, this post is a brief reflection on Vivid Sydney as a new platform for media and design:

And finally, here is my learning graph, which illustrates my development in…

  1. Learning about making media objects
  2. Working independently in unfamiliar ways
  3. Thinking critically and creatively
  4. Thinking about the value of the Media blog (all over the course of this semester)
