Resource summary

Coursework A2 Media
1 Advert
1.1 Why I discounted this idea
1.1.1 I discounted this idea because I feel like I don't have a passion to do it meaning I would get bored and wouldn't put in 100% of my effort.
1.2 Negatives
1.2.1 I don't like the sound of the ancillary tasks
1.2.2 I feel like I would waste time of the project trying to decide which product to advertise and how to advertise it
1.2.3 I would struggle with keeping the timing short so the work wouldn't be the best
1.3 Positives
1.3.1 Can choose from multiple different products
1.3.2 Many different ways to construct the advert

2.2.2 Having to film more than you need and then cutting it down to make it fit within the time frame of a trailer
2.2.3 I struggled with making the opening 2 minutes of a film last year so I don't feel like making a trailer is the best thing for me to do

3.1.1 I chose this idea as I feel like it will keep my interest for the whole length of the project whereas with the other ones I feel like I would get bored

3.3.3 Already having a base for the ideas because of the storyline of the song.
3.3.4 Lack of Narrative will allow more creative freedom
