After the pitch presentation in this week, I have heard some great ideas and learned a lot from others presentation.
- A new place I call home
I felt it is a warm story when I first heard this topic. The project is a documentary web series about immigrants’ favorite food and documenting their cooking process. I have watched a lot of cooking videos or tutorials, and they are all just teaching the audience how to cook and lack a more attractive theme. However, in this project, I can not only view the cooking process but also listen to the stories about the meal form each participates. Moreover, all participants are the group of people who have immigrated to Australia, so it enhances the emotional resonance of the immigrant community.
- Machine Generation: The Passion of The Heist
I decided to work with this project because I completed many documentary projects in my previous experience, but this project is a science fiction project, I think I can learn different fields of knowledge and skills on the project. I have never been in touch with Augmented Reality technology before. I know that this technology has been widely used in many libraries and art galleries, but I have never experienced it. So, I hope that I can get more knowledge in this area through this project. Also, “The Passion of The Heist” is a transmedia storytelling project that includes the book, mobile phone, and social media.
My project only focuses on using Facebook and Weibo, and the Instagram is also a great social platform for uploading behind scene stories and short videos. Furthermore, there are few interactive elements in my piece, but only through simple clicks to interact with the audience and users, I need to think about how to attract viewers more efficiently and make them willing to watch and share videos. In the first stage project, I want to make a website about gender equality, users can listen to the story of the participants by clicking the audio, and I think audio can let the audience sit down and listen carefully. But the web design is a tricky part, so I chose to use the Klynt to interact with users.
