    • Individual INSPIRATION FROM SIMILAR PRODUCTS
    • Chelsea Inspiration from similar products Reflexive mode: cameras are not hidden from view of viewers. Allows audience to see from more than one point of view (the main camera) Titles: titles and credits fit the theme (social networking) of the documentary and make reading them more fun for the viewers.
    • Chelsea Inspiration from similar products Titles in large, bold font, making it eye catching to the viewer Expert interviews: musician Pharrel is interviewed about Miley. Interviews: throughout the documentary, pieces of Miley’s interview is shown Archival footage: images from her twitter page are shown
    • Inspiration from similar products Rosalin Zein Expert interviews with YouTubers. Reflexive mode – as the construction of the documentary is exposed through the cameras and the presenter having direct address with the audience Archival footage / Found footage: e.g. the footage of the man jumping from space
    • Inspiration from similar products Rosalin Zein – Don't Blame Facebook The transitions that are used in this documentary are really unique. The effect resembles a fuzzy TV screen which relates to the topic of the documentary which is social media. Throughout the documentary there are cutaways to Facebook & Twitter posts as evidence for their case studies. What I liked about this was the way in which their cutaways appeared on the screen and the use of sound effects. In this documentary there would be different angles/shots of a single piece – for example, in this clip the man being interviewed has a long shot and a close up shot.
    • Inspiration from similar products Russ Monocillo statistics (captions) subtitles are easy to read Archival footage

Archival editing How TV Ruined your life is TV Show Documentary that uses various achieved clips to create sketches on attempts to place the fine line between reality and television.

In Vanguard the Mayor Of New York states statistics to strengthen his argument that the city is now better due to strict Tobacco laws.
