We are moving along, 7 weeks in, 8 more to go. Mixed within there is another exam (11/15), the final exam (sometime in December), and hopefully a guest speaker!
In this post is the work for the next TWO classes – Weeks 8 & 9
For Week 8 – 10/25:
Please read Rodman’s Radio and the Television section. We will go over both. Or as much as we can.
Blog Assignment: None. Take a break. Or get started on week 9’s work.
Quiz: Always possible.
For Week 9 – 11/1:
Read: Make sure Rodman’s TV section is read, you’ve already read it but hey, why not brush up on it.
A secondary reading will follow in the next week, please be prepared for that.
We will discuss TV but also introduce you to:
Unproductive Seasons 1 & 2
Blog due: 11/1 before 12pm
Watch Seasons 1 & 2 of Unproductive – here’s the link:
This is BC’s Television & Radio’s original webseries – written, directed, and edited by students.
Each season clocks in around 60-70 minutes.
Answer the following questions, expand, go wherever you want with it.
— Use any of the texts/readings/discussions in your work. That will impress me.
— Who is your favorite character and why? Who is your least favorite character and why? Would you want to hang out with these people? Why or why not?
— What was your favorite episode and scene? Why?
— What do you think will happen to these characters in the next season? Or in life?
— Seriously, use anything you’ve learned this semester! Impress me. Add whatever else you feel is necessary.
— Maybe think of clever marketing/advertising? Maybe internet? Hashtags? Or something else.
Lastly, in all honesty, every episode has some technical issues — sound, an edit here or an edit there, etc etc. This is what happens in a working environment and a very limited shooting schedule. When writing about the show —
DO NOT COMMENT on these issues. We know the issues.
We’ve tried to fix them but they’re there so leave those critiques OUT OF YOUR POST. I do not care whether you liked it or not, whether there was a sound issue or a cliché here or there. That is not what this is about. I do not want your review of whether the show is good, bad, or great. I want THOSE questions answered and the WHY.
There is no word count for this assignment so write for the grade you want to receive.
Remember, we will be doing a shot on November 15th AFTER the exam. All are required to attend.
However, if you have an issue with being a face in the cheering crowd, email me ASAP: email@example.com
Attendance will be taken.
And! If you would like to take part in season 3, winter 2018, shoot me an email!
OK! That’s it. Enjoy the scary nice weather.
