Sadly this will be my last post on this blog, so before I begin this post I would like to thank all of those who took the time out of their days to read my posts. I really appreciate all your comments!
After completing my PSA project, there are a few things that I would like to communicate to my viewers that I could not do through the video. First off, I believe that we successfully met the goal that we set forth before we began the project and for that I am very proud. However, along the way we certainly encountered some difficulties and setbacks that we needed to overcome. For example, it took us a significant amount of time to figure out how we wanted to begin the video in a manner that would grab the audience’s attention and make them want to see more. After several ideas we came up with the idea of using pictures of babies who were doing things that were absurd and ahead of their time. By using these images we were able to set forth our overlying idea that our society is growing and developing at a pace that is incomprehensible. In terms of the audience that the video was intended for, we believe that it was widely applicable, however it was directed mainly towards our generation(college students).
Our ultimate purpose that we hoped to accomplish from creating our PSA was to raise awareness for the development of communication and to give up to date examples of how communication has evolved to be briefer and more straightforward. We did this by demonstrating the changes that have recently been taking place, along with sharing an interview we had with a current University of Michigan Freshman pertaining to the development of E-Mail.
Through this project, as well as this class, I was able to get a better grasp of the concept of rhetoric, composition and analytical work. As straightforward as these concepts may seem, they are difficult to utilize in many scenarios. I believe that I now have a better understanding of how to use these techniques to my benefit in order to effectively communicate the point I am trying to make.
