Fall 17 – Week 8 10/25 & Week 9 11/1

Start here


Hey 1165,

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: profdunphy@gmail.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.
Professor Dunphy
