c. Application and Analysis
First and foremost, we would like to thank our Social Psychology lecturer, Mr T.
Shankar for his guidance in this assignment. We have learnt to implement concepts to
practical environments through this assignment given by Mr. T. Shankar. Besides that, we
would also like thank our group member for their contribution especially Michelle Wong
who lead the whole process of this assignment. This assignment would not be completed
without the effort and cooperation of every member who is Melvyn Poh, Soo Yon Li, Chloe
Sim, Hafiz and Yee Jyh Lin.
In this assignment, students are required to conduct a social psychology conceptual
video clip and required to do a presentation and a report in a group of 4-5 people. Students
are advised to use materials and theories from various topics taught by Mr. T. Shankar.
There are three parts in this project which are recording a video clip based on the
concepts that we have learned, producing a report of the video clip and conducting a
presentation of the video clip. This assignment allows students to learn implementation of
concepts to practical environments. Hence, students will be able to apply critical thinking in
application of real world experiences.
Methods of Filming
A. Apparatus / Materials
We have discussed about suitable props and costumes to filmour video and
prepared props so that the video is filmed in a more realistic and natural way.
i. Props & Costumes
- Test papers
- Study essentials
- Study Outfit & Casual Wear
These two outfits are worn by students in order to portray a
school and education environment. It also shows a
teenager’s outfit style which suites a study era.
- Lecturer’s Outfit
This outfit is a formal button up long sleeves dress shirt in
order to show the professional look of a lecturer / teacher.
- Doctor’s Outfit
This outfit is a long sleeves button up shirt which signifies
the outfit of a doctor which is usually known as a white coat
B. Video Making Apparatus
In order to have a good quality outcome of the video, we have chosen
suitable apparatus and equipment while filming.
i. Filming Equipment
- Camera (Nikon D700)
We have chosen a suitable camera to film from to ensure
that the voice recorded is clear and the video quality is good
We have used a tripod to stabilize the camera while filming
ii. Voice Over Equipment
- Apple Ear Piece
The ear piece is used in order to record the voice clearly to
be placed in the video
iii. Video Editing Software
We have used this editing software to edit the video in order
to edit the video properly bring out the best video quality.
Before starting to film, we have discussed and decided on the location of the
places to filmeach scene based on each scene’s suitability.
Since the video is based on a teenager’s experience, most of the
scenes involve a study environment and setting
- Office room
The video is taken within a day because most of the scenes are
flashbacks which occur during the afternoon and morning
- Morning to afternoon (11a.m.-4a.m.)
Classes and school hours occur during this time so the video
is filmed during this hour
- Evening (6pm)
To get a darker environment of the main character entering
his home late at night, this scene is taken during the evening
to ensure the suitability of the scene.
This is our operation sequence for the video taking and making process.
Before filming, we have carried out in-depth discussions about
our video storyline. We first discussed about the general part of
the video which is the theme, storyline and flow of the video.
Next, we proceeded with role delegation based on each
member’s suitable personal and characteristics. We then
decided on the psychology concepts to be implemented in the
video where 5 concepts will be shown and brought out in the
video. All the discussion outcome were written down and
We finalized the storyline with the characters, role delegation of
each member and psychology concepts to be implemented in
the video. All the finalized ideas were then compiled in words
and drawings to be shown in the report.
iii. Role Delegation
Since it is compulsory for each member to be present in the
video, we have assigned ourselves into each character in the
video based on the suitability (acting skills) of that person. We
have also included additional people as supporting characters in
the video to make the video look more realistic and natural.
We have also separated the jobs according to each member’s
strength to increase our efficiency. The table below shows the
job and role delegation of each member throughout this project:
Member Job Role in Video
Chloe Main Video Editor
Hafiz Report Writer Doctor
Jyh Lin Report Writer
Main Slide Maker
Melvyn Report Writer
Yon Li’s Friend
Michelle Main Script Writer
Yon Li Director
E. Video Taking
As most of our video compromises of flashbacks, there are many difference
scenes included. Therefore, our pre-discussion came in handy during the
video taking because we were able to go and set up each setting straight
away before filming the video.
We needed warm ups and a few practices before taking the video in order to
achieve the mood needed and facial expression of each member to portray
the suitable feeling of the video.
Our video we filmed according to each scene and everything went smoothly
because we were clear of our objectives, motives and filming requirement.
We had several different takes during each scene to show different angles.
The different angles are shown to enhance the importance of the dialog,
character, expression and feeling in order to complete the video.
It was not only the videographer who took the video but each member whom
have contributed to the filming angles and expression to wear during the
video taking. This cooperation between each group member brought up the
efficiency of our work as a whole.
F. Data Compilation & Presentation
All the outcome from each discussion is written down and then compiled in
the report. We have made scripts, drawn scenes, discussed about the
psychological concepts implemented and made the video after the video
taking. All of the process outcome was then written and typed properly to be
compiled in the report.
The data compilation is categorized into the video, report and presentation
slides. We have split the work and each worked together to complete the
Concepts & Definition
After many discussion sessions among ourselves, we came up with a few ideas which
revolve around bullying, changing attitudes and lastly different perspective or perceptions
by different people. Our initial idea was to have romance as our video guideline but in the
end we decided to give up on that mainstream concept. Our video concept was scripted
inspired by a Taiwanese movie called “Our Times”. We have used a scene from the movie to
show the concepts mentioned above. The occurred situation is similar to the situation in the
movie but there were twists of events and additional thoughts, views, perspective and
perception of our own that we have included.
Bullying has always been common in school, on TV movies and social media so we
have decided to use bullying as one of our main situation in our video to ensure that
students nowadays witness this seriously. Bullying consists of few types, and the one is
implemented in our video clip is physical bullying. Bullying the weak has never been a nice
thing to do and bullies are usually not conscious about the feelings of their victims. Victims
are often seen as physically, emotionally and mentally unstable, threatened or under
constant fear of being bullied. By implementing bullying as one of the main points in our
video, we hope to bring awareness to the public and society that people who used to be
bullies can also turn over a new leaf and change for the better.
A brief explanation of our concept is showing that the main character who used to
be a bully and convicted rules breaking crime has changed his attitude after a certain event
which has occurred. Many outsiders such as classmates, schoolmates and lecturers still
think that the main character is still a bully and a bad student. However, the main character
has changed his attitude and tried to get rid of his bully image. He has turned over a new
leaf and is penitent and secretly hoping that everyone would just spare him a chance to see
his change in character and forget of his previous wrongdoings. It is not easy to change, but
when someone does that does not always mean that person will be fully accepted over
again. Many who have tried changing for the better do not get a second chance to prove
that they are different. In some major scenarios, these people might end up taking their
own life because their change is not accepted by the society. In our video, the main
character does not take his own life but is drowned in despair, disappointment and regret
when his change in personality is unaccepted by his lecturer.
Perception is a mental impression, basically the ability to become aware through
senses. In this case, we treat “perception” as perspective or how feelings affect our
thoughts. It is an expression of different thoughts made by different individuals depending
of their schema on a certain item, person or situation. This is also known as having different
perspectives. In our video, the main character has changed from a bully to a hardworking
student, this shows a drastic change in personality and habit. There is a difference in both
attitude and not everyone will believe or accept his change in personality. There are
individuals who may think that all of this is just an act or play, some might think that he has
genuinely changed and is currently working very hard in studies.
The main theme of our video is to portray and show that no matter bad a student
might be in the past, there is always a chance for a person to change for the better. They
have a choice to change their attitude but that does not mean or suggest that third parties
will accept their change. Third party people will have their own perception on this person
either believing that they have changed genuinely or will never be able to change their old
habits, personalities and attitudes.
The main psychology concepts we have chosen is confirmation bias, social
interaction, instrumental aggression, extrinsic motivation and social perception. All of these
concepts will be illustrated in the video.
Before proceeding to film the video, we have prepared a rough sketch of all the
scenes to have a rough idea on how we have to film the scene. It shows the environment,
situation and timing of that scene. Our video is taken mainly showing the positioning of each
character in the video. The storyboard has helped us have a clearer imagery vision of how
the video should be filmed. It also displays the angle where we should film the video from in
order to capture the situation, expression of the character and film in a more realistic way.
We have written a complete script to know a clear conversation between each
character. The script includes dialogue, actions, environments, locations and expressions.
The script not only allows us to identify the expression of each character at that moment of
time easily, it also allows us to film the video at ease because we are sure of the things we
are acting out.
The casting list (characters) are assigned to each member as so:
Main Character: Yon Li
Yon Li’s Friends: Melvyn & others
Classmates: Michelle, Chloe & others
Lecturer: Jyh Lin
Main Character’s Mother: Michelle
We have included other people as additional characters in order for the video to
seem more realistic and natural.
The script is written as so:
Bolded words: Location
Character Lines: Dialogue
Others: Situation / Action
Class situation is noisy. Lecturer (Jyh Lin) is walking towards the class.
The lecturer enters the noisy classroom.
Lecturer slams his books and papers onto the table and class becomes silent.
Lecturer: Now, I am going to distribute the exam paper.
Lecturer distributes the exam paper to every student until the last paper which belongs to
Yon Li. The exam papers are from the lowest marks to the highest marks.
The class, especially his friends, cheers for him as he stands up from his seat.
Suddenly, the lecturer rips his exam paper in half right in front of him. Yon Li is in shock and
the whole class falls silent. His friends support him by shouting and asking the lecturer
rudely on why he ripped the exampapers.
Lecturer (fierce): You cheated in the exam!
Yon Li (shows anger): I did not!
Lecturer: How can a person like you get such good grades!
Yon Li has never been a model student. He has always been known to bully others.
Yon Li and his friends surrounded the boy wanting to hit and beat the boy.
The boy is scared and is curled up in the middle.
The lecturer walks past and sees the scene. The lecturer points at them.
Lecturer: Stop that!
Yon Li and his friends runs away from the scene and out of the campus. They run pass Chloe
who is walking nearby. Chloe looks towards them and the direction they run from.
There was once when he forced and threatened a boy to steal the exam papers for him.
Yon Li and his friends were surrounding a boy.
Yon Li shoves the boy to the side.
Yon Li: I want you to steal the exam papers for me.
Yon Li slings his armover the boy’s neck and points towards an office
Yon Li: They’re in there. Get them for us.
The boy nervously shakes his head in fear.
You Li: When I tell you to do something, you better do it! Or else (crushes fist)
The boy nods in fear.
The boy had no choice but to follow his orders because he was afraid. The boy has always
been a victim to Yon Li and his friends
It was not long after when Yon Li was caught forcing the boy to steal the exam papers for
The lecturer is talking to the boy in the office room while the boy is explaining himself. Yon
Li walks towards the office room and enters. When Yon Li enters, the boy stops talking and
immediately looks down with his head. After Yon Li enters, the lecturer asks the boy to leave
Lecturer (angrily): What do you have to explain for yourself.
Yon Li shrugs and shows that he does not care by standing there with an expressionless
Jyh Lin slams the table and starts scolding Yon Li with Yon Li arguing back. He then tells Yon
Li to leave and get out.
Yon Li enters his house where his mother is seated in the living room. She glares at him and
they start to argue. She points to the clock showing how late it is (3A.M.).
Yon Li always returns home late. His mother is upset at his heart breaking actions and
attitude. They always argue with each other all the time.
Yon Li and his friends and taunting the boy again when he receives a call. He answers the
call and then his expression turns dark. He drops the things in his hand.
Doctor: Hafiz, your mother is diagnosed with pancreas cancer, she is very ill at the moment
and might not have much time left. I am sorry.
Yon Li is studying in a library searching for information.
He is searching and referring to books.
Chloe is nearby searching for books too and she notices him.
Yon Li is studying and he asks for help in his studies from a student nearby.
He also studies with her sometimes.
Chloe is working on her project nearby and this does not go unnoticed
Yon Li has turned over a new leaf after hearing the news about his mother. His mother
words would always continuously ring in his ears.
Mother’s words: All I want is for you to talk good care of yourself and be hardworking. It’s
never too late to change
BACKTO PRESENTCLASSROOM SCENE
Lecturer: We are going to see director now.
Yon Li follows unwillingly.
Lecturer: Ever since the last time you were caught cheating, your impression has been
destroyed. A person like you would never change. Who you were in the past still shows who
you are today. If you were a bad student, you’ll be one forever.
Melvyn: Yon Li would have never cheated in this exam. He worked hard because of his
mother’s wish and we all saw the change in him. It’s so unfair for him. He didn’t even get a
chance to show that he has changed.
Chloe overhears this and turns over to Melvyn.
Chloe: I might not be close to Yon Li, but I do agree that he has changed. I was there when
you guys were bullying the boy, you guys ran past me. I used to think that you all were bad
students and were bullies. But I did see him studying hard recently. He could have gotten
Main character: I did not cheat. I was once a bad student but ever since my mother was sick,
I have changed to become more hardworking. All she wanted was for me to change and I
did it! But you still think that I am the bad student from the past. Why can’t I have a chance
to change and be accepted?
Application & Design
This will be a further explanation of each concepts that we have chosen and can be applied
into our video clip.
Scene 1 - Confirmation bias
The lecturer does not believe Yong Li has good grades for his examination.
He thinks that he cheated in the exam.
Concept definition: This concept refers to people favour to seek out information that
confirms their existing opinions and overlook or ignore information that disprove their
Explanation: Confirmation bias often occurs when people remove out potentially useful
facts and opinions that don’t coexist with their biased belief. It affects perceptions and
decision making in all aspects of our lives and can cause us to make limited choices. Seeking
out people and communication with different opinions than our own can enable us to
overcome confirmation bias and make better decision. Most of the biased individual
information of a certain person, event or situation is perceived to be made due to personal
experience, opinions and perceptions.
Scene description: The lecturer was handing out exam papers in class. He called the
students one by one from the lowest mark to the highest mark. Yon Li was called last by the
lecturer which strongly suggests that he has obtained the highest mark from his class.
However, shockingly, his exampaper was torn instead. His lecturer scolded and accused him
for cheating in exam because of his high grade in the exam. He does not believe that Yon Li
is able to achieve such good results without cheating. The lecturer has asked him to meet
him at the director office. On the lecturer’s way out of the classroom, he has inner thoughts
saying that since he first met Yon Li, he has been a bully and cheater. He has come to
believed that he is one to violate school rules and is a bad student. Once a student is a bad
student, there is no going back or changing
Application: When the teacher found out that Yon Li’s has gotten good grades for his
examination, he does not believe that Yon Li has managed to get such unbelievably
remarkable good grades. He accused Yon Li for cheating in this exam so he tore away his
exam paper in front of the class to clearly state that Yon Li has cheated even if there were
no evidence or facts that said that Yon Li cheated. He told off Yon Li and scolded him
regardless of all the explanations Yon Li was trying to explain In actual fact, Yon Li did work
hard and studied for his exam but all of this has gone unnoticed by his lecturer. His lecturer
does not believe that he has changed his attitude because he has labelled Yon Li as a
student who bullies others, violates school rules, cheats in exam and is a student who does
not bother about his examresults. Up until today, his perception of Yon Li still remains as a
bad student. He thinks that Yon Li will never change his student because for him, bad
students will never change and will remain the same forever. Therefore, since he has known
Yon Li as a troublemaker in the past who has tried cheating in exam before, so he is still the
same person in the past as of today.
Scene 2- First impression
When Yon Li’s lecturer first saw Yon Li and his gang bullying a nerd at the staircase.
Concept definition: First impression is the event when one person first encounters another
person and forms a mental image of that person.
Explanation: It takes only a few seconds for people to form a first impression of other
people. First impression of people will first judge on people’s different traits like, race, looks,
gender, posture and voice. The first impressions that an individual give to other people will
greatly determine how they are treated and viewed in their daily lives.
Scene description: Yon Li and his friends are always known to bully people. When they saw a
nerd walking up the stairs, the gang rushes over to bully him because he seems like an easy
target who is not able to protect himself. The nerd was helpless and overwhelmed by the
bullies. He could only hurl up in the middle trying to protect himself but he was not able to
fight back because he was afraid of Yon Li and his friends. Yon Li and his friends started to
hit, bully, taunt and laugh at him. There was a lecturer walking down the stairs at that time
and noticed the ongoing situation. He ran down and shouted at them to stop their bully act.
He was in shock and was very angry as he noticed how these student treated other
students. The gang quickly fled down the stairs as they noticed the lecturer’s presence. They
did not want to get into trouble for hurting the nerd for their bullying act. The lecturer
worriedly asked if the nerd was okay. He managed to get a glimpse of Yon Li’s face and tried
to remember his face. Since then, a bad first impression of Yon Li has been made. He has
labelled Yon Li as a bully and considered him as a bad student who violates school rules.
Application: When Yon Li and his gang of brothers were bullying the nerd, the lecturer
noticed this situation and tried to stop what Yon Li and his friends were doing. Yon Li and his
gang hurried down to escape the lecturer but the lecturer managed to get a glimpse of Yon
Li’s face. When the lecturer first saw Yon Li bullying the nerd, his first impression of Yon Li
was that he is a bully and treats other students in a bad manner. This causes himto believe
that Yon Li also violates school rules and is not a model student. He also thinks that Yon Li
does not care about his education and homework due to his first impression of Yon Li. He
has labelled Yon Li as a bad student who bullies others, violates school rules and does not
care about his studies after his first impression of Yon Li was formed. Yon Li’s first
impression towards his lecturer was very negative which causes him to continuously label
and believe that Yon Li is and forever will be a bad student.
Scene 3- Instrumental aggression
Yon Li and his gang surrounded a nerd and taunted him.
Concept Definition: Instrumental aggression is a harmful behaviour that engaged without
provocation or injuries to obtain a certain goal.
Explanation: Instrumental aggression is a non-injurious behaviour that usually associated
with forcing people or taunting people to do stuff. Sometimes can be seen where bullies try
to intimidate kids with their aggression so that the kids will be scare and listen to them. This
kind of aggression is harmless to people. It does not cause any physical harm or injuries to
Scene Description: While the Nerd is walking along the campus corridor, Yon Li and his gang
of friends saw him and rushed towards him. They surrounded the nerd and started to taunt
him. Yon Li as the group leader started to grab the nerd around his shoulders and started to
talk rudely and threatened him. Yon Li started to frighten the nerd so that the nerd will help
him steal the test paper. The nerd was scared because he has always been a victim of bully
from Yon Li and his friends. He is afraid of their threatens and he agrees to do so even if it
might put him in a tight situation later on.
Application: This concept can be seen when Yon Li and his gang of brothers surrounded the
nerd while he was walking along a corridor. The boy has done nothing to Yon Li but Yon Li
has been bullying and picking on him all this while. Yon Li used his aggressive tone to taunt
the nerd, so that he will be frightened of him and give in to Yon Li’s request. Yon Li’s method
of forcing someone into doing something they reject, despise or go against is by force and
bullying. This aggressive situation forces and threatens the victim (the nerd) to giving in to
his request of stealing the exam papers even if the nerd knows that it is a wrongdoing.
However, since this is an action which violates the school rules, Yon Li does not want to bear
the burden of getting caught, so he forces the nerd to do this job instead by aggressively
threatening and taunting the nerd. He knows that the nerd is afraid of him and he will be
able to get the exam papers (his actual goal) to be able to cheat in the exam. In this scene,
the bullies did not hit or injure the nerd, they just taunted and threatened the nerd verbally
to achieve their goal which is for the nerd to be scared and willing help Yon Li steal the exam
Scene 4 – Extrinsic Motivation
Yon Li heard the bad news of his mother’s sickness. He has turned over a new leaf and
Concept Definition: Extrinsic motivation drives people to do things for tangible rewards or
pressures, rather than for the fun of it.
Explanation: When an individual is forced to do something that individual really hates but at
the end of it, the individual is reward with something after completing the task or when the
task is being done. This is known as extrinsic motivation. These are the things, actions or
events that a person really hates doing but that person just have to complete it because the
person knows that they will get something in return after completing that matter. For
example, you are lazy to study and your mum keep on nagging and persuading you to study
hard. She promises you that you if you get good grades in your study, she will give reward
you with a new laptop. In this situation, we see that you are someone who hates studying
but for the sake of the reward your mother is offering, you are motivated to study and work
Scene Description: While Yon Li was busy bullying the nerd at campus, he gets a called from
the doctor and who has informed him that his mother had a pancreas cancer. He was
shocked from this upsetting news. Although he has always argued with his mother, he
hopes and wants his mother to recover and get better. He feels bad for arguing with his
mother all the time. His mother advices and begs him to change his current attitude. She
encourages him to do so because all she wants is a change in him, for him to become a
better person. He listens to his mother’s words because the doctor said that she might not
live any time longer. He wakes up and regrets violating school rules and being a bully. Since
that day, he has started to change his lifestyle to be more hardworking by studying hard in
school. He works hard so that his mother can see the change in him and will be proud of his
Application: In this scene we can see that Yon Li is motivated to do something that he never
done before. Under the situation where he knows that his mother has caught on a serious
illness and might not have much longer to live, he wakes up from all his misbehaving
attitudes. He listens to her advice and words telling him to change his attitude. He regrets
arguing with her all the time and decides to make it up to her. Her pleads does not fall under
deaf ears because he follows her orders and encouragement. Her words has become
encouragement and motivation for him. Therefore, even if he has always hated studying, he
has started to start studying because of his mother’s words. Over time, he is seemto have
changed and has become a better person. He has started to focus on his study and stop
picking on or bullying others. Under his mother’s motivation, he was driven to make a
change in his attitude and has finally managed to turn over a new leaf. This new behaviour
and actions of his obviously does not go unnoticed by his classmates who and close friends
who have known him as a bully and misbehaved student.
Scene 5 – Social Perception
The students in class are talking about Yon Li’s situation
Concept Definition: Social Perception is the process by which we form impressions of other
people and make inferences about them.
Explanation: The study of how people form impressions of and make inferences about other
people. We learn about others' feelings and emotions by picking up on information we
gather from their physical appearance, and verbal and nonverbal communication. For
example, on the first day of a new class, when a lecturer walks into the classroom, I may
perceive the lecturer to be short, poorly dressed, and socially awkward, he might have
initially remind me of previous teacher I didn’t like. But later on, once I have gathered more
information, I may re-evaluate the lecturer as humorous, intelligent, and an excellent
teacher because my perception of the lecture has changed over time depending on my
exposure, thoughts and views of the lecturer
Scene Description - After Yon Li was called out by the lecturer, his friends started to talk to
each other. They were not satisfied with the lecturer’s attitude towards Yon Li. Since the
lecturer accused Yon Li out of the blue with no evidence pointing towards Yon Li, they
started to complain about the lecturer being biased because as his close friends, they have
seen the obvious change in Yon Li. They believe that the old Yon Li has disappeared and is
replaced with a hardworking and diligent one. They know that his mother has been the key
factor of his change, so they believe in him. One of classmate overheard their conversation
about the situation in class just now. She also joined in their conversation. She too stood up
for him. She does not know him well but not only did she see the obvious change in attitude
of him but she also spotted him studying at times. She was not close to him, but did not
have ill feelings towards him which causes her stand to be neutral compared to the lecturer
and his friends.
Application: For this scene, we know that each of the character have their own personal
views on the situation which causes them to have a social perception in this matter. Each
and every character has their own feelings, perspective and opinion towards Yon Li. All their
perception is told in this scene which. All his friends supports and believes in Yon Li. They
truth him for not cheating in exam even if he did try to cheat before. This is because they
knew the reason behind the drastic change in Yon Li which is due to his mother’s illness.
They have noticed his attitude change which is why they believe that the lecturer is accusing
Yon Li out of nowhere. Other that his friends, a classmate also voices out her opinion on Yon
Li. She is only a classmate, not his friend, so her position is the most neutral among the
other characters because she does not need to be biased towards anyone. Her opinion of
Yon Li started off with him being a bully and bad student because of the bad impressions of
his spreading around campus. However, she also notices the change he has had throughout
the past weeks. She knows that he has turned over a new leaf and his attitude could have
changed because she has seen him studying hard. She believes that it is possible for him to
achieve good grades due to his new hardworking attitude that she has witness countless
