No notes for slide
  • Slide 1 (Hook/ attention grabber):
    I love the arts and recently discussed this passion with some of my friends telling them my desire to enter the arts field. They immediately responded with their contempt for the arts as a false view of reality. This perception is a hard one to take and yet is played out all the time in the arts in advertisement and marketing.
  • Slide 2 (Hook/ attention grabber):
    Photoshop, and other photo editors, can be used to convey and push a digital story through photo manipulation. However, most advertising companies distort this view and treat photo manipulation as their tool to advertise to the masses their “ideal” woman.
  • Slide 3 (The Big Idea):
    If you airbrush models in advertisements, then you display that image as the ideal woman, even though they tend to portray an unrealistic, and in some cases impossible, image.
  • Slide 4 (What’s in it for your audience? Is it worth it?):
    This matter is of increasing importance as young girls are seeing these advertisements and are judging themselves based off of this false sense of reality.
  • Slide 5 (Why should your audience listen to you? Your Ethos):
    I love the arts, and believe photo manipulation can be a beautiful thing as long as you treat it as what it is, an altering of reality. I personally have taken a strong stance against the portrayal of models and actresses in these ridiculously altered states when my niece who is only 8 told my family that she isn’t pretty enough because she doesn’t look like the models on the covers of magazines.
  • Slide 6 (Call to adventure):
    Art should be used as a way to express oneself not as a way to suppress the expression of others. We all need to understand that airbrushed models should not be the standard against which we measure our own worth.
  • Slide 7 (Preview the three main points that will support your idea):
    1. Showing airbrushed models portrays an unrealistic image of women
    2. This unrealistic view leads to depression
    3. Even models and actresses are opposed to their airbrushed images
  • Slide 8 (Introduce and setup supporting point one):
    Showing airbrushed models portrays an unrealistic image of women
  • Slide 9 (Factual or emotional evidence):
    I want these two slides to be a recount of the article I found that took a model through the steps of a photo shoot and then revealed to her the airbrushed image at the end and her reaction.
    This article written by Hollie McKay of Fox News tried to get real accounts from models who have experienced airbrushing. She found some models who preferred airbrushing because of the nature of the industry yet several, including a Victoria’s Secret model, preferred not to be airbrushed.
    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2010/09/17/airbrush-smackdown-models-say-ban-actresses-say-way/
  • Slide 10 (Factual or emotional evidence):
    I want these two slides to be a recount of the article I found that took a model through the steps of a photo shoot and then revealed to her the airbrushed image at the end and her reaction.
    It is difficult for teenagers to learn respect for their own bodies when the standards created by airbrushing are so unrealistic.
    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2010/09/17/airbrush-smackdown-models-say-ban-actresses-say-way/
  • Slide 11 (Introduce and setup supporting point two):
    This unrealistic view leads to depression
  • Slide 12 (Factual or emotional point one):
    This slide will show a visual representation of depression in younger women linked to society’s view of the “ideal” woman.
    According to all on depression help &lt;dot&gt; com, statistics show that 20 out of every 100 teenagers suffer from depression.
    http://www.all-on-depression-help.com/teenage-depression-statistics.html
  • Slide 13 (Factual or emotional point two):
    This slide will have statistical representation of depression in young teen girls relating to their self views.
    The number of teens diagnosed with depression seems to be on the rise every year with 70 percent of teens suffering from a single episode of depression before they turn 18.
    http://www.all-on-depression-help.com/teenage-depression-statistics.html
  • Slide 14 (Introduce and setup supporting point two):
  • Slide 15 (Factual or emotional point one):
    This quote comes from a former model. It depicts how eve models aren’t always happy with how their images are retouched essentially telling them that they aren’t “good enough.”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24522060
  • Slide 16 (Factual or emotional point two):
    The author of the BBC News article, “What does it feel like to be airbrushed,” filed the role of a model for a photo shoot to do just as the article suggest. She was surprised by the results and as you can see from the quote had a different opinion of photos she originally thought were fine as soon as the photo was distorted into an image that represents the “perfect” woman.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24522060
  • Slide 17 (Call to action):
    We need to start appreciating beauty for what it is and stop manufacturing what advertisement companies consider “perfection.”
  • Slide 18 (Summarize the main point):
    1. Showing airbrushed models portrays an unrealistic image of women
    2. This unrealistic view leads to depression
    3. Even models and actresses are opposed to their airbrushed images
  • Slide 19 (Restate Big Idea):
    If you airbrush models in advertisements, then you display that image as the ideal woman, even though they tend to portray an unrealistic, and in some cases impossible, image.
  • Slide 20 (Clincher/ New Bliss):
    Art can be an incredible means for expression. Manipulation of photography can yield some fantastic and unique alternative views of reality. However, we have to realize that that’s exactly what it is, an alternate view of reality. These airbrushed women are not realistic. In most cases the way they are portrayed is unhealthy or physically impossible. We need to step beyond what these advertisers want us to believe is real and start appreciating us for who we are.
