Entertainment.  Pictures   29-­‐09-­‐2011   ©  2011   Ryan  Inglis  Documentary      Plan  of  Action    Internet     • Ryan  Inglis’  blog:  www.ryaninglis.com   Ryan  Inglis  keeps  an  up-­to-­date  blog  featuring  info  on  tours,  gigs,  music  and   music  videos,  etc.  –  good  source  of  research  as  it’s  a  primary  account  of   Inglis’  activities   • Weston  Mercury:  http://www.thewestonmercury.co.uk/home   The  Weston  Mercury  is  great  source  of  articles  about  Ryan  Inglis  and  also   features  a  database  of  headlines  such  as  the  news  of  Charlie  Derrick’s   accident    -­‐  useful  in  getting  a  full  account  of  what  happened  and  when   • Slice  the  Pie:  http://www.slicethepie.com/   Website  in  which  upcoming  artists  post  songs  and  are  rated  by  users.  Inglis   won  a  £20,000  deal  to  record  his  album  with  after  receiving  a  high  amount   of  hits  on  his  song  ‘secret’  -­‐  good  source  of  facts  which  we  can  use  in  the   documentary   • Charlie  Derrick  Bursary  Website:   http://www.footprint.org.uk/bursary   Charlie  Derrick,  one  of  the  focuses  of  the  documentary,  has  had  a  charity   created  in  his  name  by  his  mother  to  help  aid  young  musicians  –  Very  useful   as  this  features  a  full  account  of  people  the  charity  has  helped,  possible  to   use  this  information  to  contact  these  people?    Interviews     • Ryan  Inglis   Very  important  as  focus  is  on  Inglis  and  the  charity,  who  better  to  ask?  Need   to  email  a  few  questions  and  create  a  profile  on  him   • Julie  Derrick   Mother  to  Charlie  Derrick.  Also  very  important  as  she  set  up  the  charity  and   again  who  better  to  ask?  Need  to  email  a  few  questions  such  as  what  is   appropriate  to  mention  –  we  want  to  handle  this  documentary   sensitively/respectfully   • Tony  Hobden   Friend  of  both  Ryan  and  Charlie’s.  Tony  mixed  Inglis’  acoustic  album  and  is   now  mixing  his  latest  album  (funded  by  Slice  the  Pie)  –  he  can  provide  a  lot   of  background  to  Ryan’s  journey   • People  affected  by  the  Charlie  Derrick  Bursary     On  the  Footprint  website  there  is  a  long  list  of  who  the  Bursary  has  helped   over  the  last  7  years;  Weston  is  an  interesting  place  as  someone  we  know  is   bound  to  know  someone  else  on  that  list  –  they’re  all  musicians  so  the   Weston  College  Music  Department  might  know  a  few.  Also  according  to   Tony  Hobden,  many  of  the  musicians  at  Weston  College  are  behind  the  
  2. 2. charity  so  it’s  now  just  a  matter  of  finding  them  and  seeing  if  they’ll  do  an   interview    Our  Audience    Who  is  our  audience  and  how  should  the  documentary  be  tailored  to  them?  It’s  very  important  we  understand  this  if  we  are  going  to  appeal  for  their  charity.  How  can  we  research  this?     • Questionnaires   We  need  to  know:   •      how  long  they  expect  it  to  be   •      artistic  expectations  (artistic  look,  lens  flares,  High-­‐Definition,  basic?)   •      appeals  previously  seen  on  average   • Group  Experiment   Select  a  random  sample  of  music/media  students,  split  them  into  groups   and  present  each  group  with  a  different  type  of  documentary  (one  artistic,   one  basic,  one  funny)  and  see  the  effect  it  has  on  the  audience,  fill  out   questionnaire  afterwards  and  compare  results   • Research  into  Music  Documentaries  and  Charity  Appeals   The  typical  Musician’s  documentary  is  presented  artistically;  take  for   instance  Live  at  Abbey  Road,  which  is  shot  in  HD  featuring  focus  pulls  and   large  cinematic  depth  of  fields.  This  is  one  style,  the  typical  style   associated  to  music-­‐literate  audiences  which  we  want  to  combine  with   the  Charity  Appeal  documentary,  such  as  Secret  Millionaire,  a  different   genre  in  it’s  own  right  in-­‐which  we  must  create  a  successful  hybrid    We  currently  see  our  audience  as  Musicians  and  students  of  music,  this  is  because  there  is  a  large  focus  on  Ryan  Inglis,  a  musician,  and  also  a  main  focus  on  the  Charlie  Derrick  Bursary  which  aims  to  help  young  students  of  music.    Whether  this  is  an  accurate  estimate  of  our  audience  shall  be  revealed  through  research.
