For thirteen weeks, I have been working on a digital artefact titled: the future of online media. As the names suggests, it is an online WordPress blog that discusses different aspects of online media, what the culture is online, different aspects that have arose, and what is predicted from my standpoint to be the future of these trends. The blog itself featured three overall posts that discussed different topics of online media. This ranged from media companies and their influence online, the transition of television to the internet, and the influence AI has performed online.
So now was the time for everyone to tell BCM325 about their betas and I looked at three different BETAs and how far they had come, and what I believed could help them for their final DA.
For my project, I directed a pitch, which can be viewed here. After the response from both my classmates and Chris, I decided to tweak my methodology, utility, and presentation.
I have enjoyed seeing different posts from my peers and this is the summaries from three different pitches I commented on:
For the past three to four years, I have been a regular on Twitter, this either consists of engaging with my Bachelor degree and the various subjects, or for personal use where I would follow certain people and news events as they broke. However, this is the first time I have been asked to dissect and curate my tweets, giving a reflection on how I did in addressing the films as well as how I connected with others.
My Digital artefact is titled ‘The future of Online Media’. The intention is to record how different trends, creators, and look at the overall space of online media. I will focus solely on Youtube for the moment, and spread to other platforms. The aim inform people on the current state of online media and how different people or companies grow on these sites. The impact it will leave will help people of the long term future understand the trends of why certain events on these platforms happened. I intend to do short videos online, and create them using final cut pro. I hope that this will create discussion between the audience and posting on multiple social sites (e.g. reddit, twitter) create a dialogue for present and future audiences to come.
To say I have learned a lot from this subject is an underestimate. I think back to what has been taught in The Future of Work (BCM313), and I think it has been more of what has happened outside of the 3hour seminar each week as well as what happens during. Looking back on these thirteen weeks of classes and assessments, I look and see a different individual than who is writing this now.
For my project, I decided to explore the beauty industry involved in East Asia. The main aspect to explore contained three parts: The products themselves, the digital aspect, and the the ingredients. This was presented in an Instagram page, where I would review a beauty product from East Asia in one post, then discuss the ingredients in a second post, and repeat with each product. The final posts consisted of 10 products and 20 posts.
When I was deciding who to interview, there were many candidates I could choose, my parents, my aunts and uncles, work friends, but in then end, there was one person that I knew would be honest and comfortable. We would sit down on the couch, relax, and they would answer every question with no hesitation.
That person is my sister, Nicolina Radic.
