Evaluation question 1 (1)

  1. 1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. 2.  It was quite clear our documentary had to be classed as participatory, this allows the presenter to interact with the interviewee and the dogs on camera meaning that it would create a more laid back and relaxed feel to the documentary.  An example of a participatory documentarian is Louis Theroux, Louis manages to get personal will his interviewees and ask deeper quicker die to the extra interaction level of the documentary.This makes the documentary a lot more interesting and more hands on.  From our target research we decided this was the best thing to do as it is a lot more interesting and the interaction level makes you fell part of it.  If you watch our target audience interview you will see this was the best thing to do.
  3. 3.  Many documentaries used sourced footage at some point of their documentary, however we thought that didn’t truly reflect what we wanted to achieve and decided we were going to film the whole thing by ourselves.  Sourced footage doesn't always convey want you are trying to send across to the audience, although it could be the perfect clip it is pretty much always obvious and brings down the tone of the documentary.
  4. 4.  Montage of clips at the start of the documentary gives a general insight and overview as to what the audience can expect from the documentary. It shows exactly what the documentary will focus on and defines the fact it will be showing dogs in the best possible light.  The montage itself has an happy feel about it and all the reasons why Dogs are mans best friend are positive ones, a comparison of one documentary to another is between the BBC1 documentary‘The Wonder of Dogs’ and ours. At the start of the wonder of dogs there is a montage of clips where dogs are predominately shown doing activities related to the documentary, although simple this is a common technique used in a lot of documentaries to set the tone and mood right from the start of viewing.
  5. 5.  Throughout daily life, social media is starting to take over all aspects.With this in mind as a group we decided to incorporate this into our documentary so people can connect in real time and a lot quicker, we included two definitive hashtags throughout our documentary.  Our two hashtags were #Dogumentary and #Mansbestfriend  These hashtags will be seen on our audiences social media timelines and will spread the word about the documentary quickly and easily making them aware of what to expect and curious as to whether they would enjoy it.
  6. 6.  In many documentaries there is the common theme that a voiceover is heard then the documentarian of presenter is introduced.This is also a common theme in our documentary.  Like the wonder of dogs a voiceover is heard and then they're introduced, our documentary is very similar to this and portrays a lot of the same views and conventions of documentaries.  The voice of god offers a voice that cant be put to a face, however a lot of documentaries use this
  7. 7.  Documentary music is used to create a mood and feel to the scenario, throughout our documentary there is a consistent happy feel and this is reflected in our audience feedback.  At one stage of our documentary there I however a change of mood and this is easily shown in the music, when our sight impaired interviewee Sarah is talking about her condition and how it came about the music turns slow and sad to highlight how it is a difficult subject and could be very sensitive to her. It must be hard to talk about it and the music changes will help the audience understand this.
