Initial Ideas & Filming By Victoria Hamilton & Josh Fry
Mind Map <ul><li>Before we decided on any ideas, we did a mind map each, to see what different ideas we came up with, to then adapt. Here is an example below. </li></ul>
Word Clouds <ul><li>We also did a mind map of words that relate to documentary, to help us get an idea of what they include and the different styles of documentary. </li></ul>
Who is Michael Moore? <ul><li>Michael Moore is an American filmmaker, </li></ul><ul><li>author and liberal political commentator. </li></ul><ul><li>Michael Moore was born in Flint, on April 23 </li></ul><ul><li>1954. Michael began his journalistic career writing </li></ul><ul><li>for the school newspaper and after dropping </li></ul><ul><li>out of college briefly worked as the editor for "Mother Jones’’. </li></ul><ul><li>He then turned to filmmaking, and to earn the money for the budget of his first film Roger & Me (1989) he ran neighbourhood bingo games. The success of this film launched his career as one of America's best-known and most controversial documentary maker. </li></ul>
Spurlock’s Methods <ul><li>Spurlock used shock tactics to allow the public to see the horrible effects of eating fast food in large quantities. </li></ul><ul><li>His motive was to expose and express to the public the immediate affects of consuming McDonalds products and the affect this is having on the health of the public. </li></ul><ul><li>Spurlock uses very reflexive methods in his documentaries and during Supersize Me in particular he went to the extreme, using himself as a human guinea pig. </li></ul>
Our Ideas <ul><li>We have decided our target audience will be teenagers ranged between 13-18. </li></ul><ul><li>We also want it to appeal to females and males, so our topic has to interest both. </li></ul><ul><li>We were thinking of basing it on </li></ul><ul><li>teenage lifestyle/experiences to </li></ul><ul><li>show how different teenagers cope </li></ul><ul><li>with different problems. </li></ul>
What style we have chosen to do. <ul><li>We have chosen to use an expository style of documentary, as we felt this would be the most effective style to utilize our ideas. </li></ul><ul><li>We decided this style for our own documentary because we were inspired and influenced by the impact of both Moore’s and Spurlock’s documentaries. </li></ul>
Clips of films <ul><li>We interviewed a few people from our target audience for some research, about what documentaries they watch and why they enjoy watching them, so we could relate it to our documentary. </li></ul><ul><li>We also created a video by interviewing people about some teenage topics and how they cope with different situations. We also used a number of different camera angles and documentary styles, to give us a taste of what we could use in our documentary. </li></ul>
