Deadline: Week 10 - September 19, 2011
HD: High Distinction 80-100, D: Distinction 70-79, C: Credit 60-69, P: Pass 50-59, NC: Not Yet Competent
In order to achieve a HD for this brief you need to:
1. Project Description
During the Workshop Program you will be creating a project exploring issues around media censorship and privacy. Digital media censorship and media privacy is a contentious contemporary issue with several examples across the spectrum of digital media shaping a reassessment of how we see our right to privacy, and what we feel should be available to us in digital mass media.
Consider events such as:
Censorship is a topical and highly relevant issue for online content producers of the future. Internet filtering could affect freedom of speech, artistic expression or even the viability of a high speed Internet. Censorship generally, and our rights to privacy are not guaranteed within either Sate or Federal legislation. Unlike the USA, we have no legislated freedom of speech. While several governments have tinkered with a Bill of Rights that could include Freedom of Speech legislation, this has never eventuated with strong lobby groups rallying against the proposal.
You should research these issues and develop a perspective on the issues, or a particular topic in this area. What will you say about the topic? What is your central idea?
How this relates to SIM2
For the Workshop Project module you are to create a project that articulates a perspective on issues around media censorship and privacy*. The project can be representative or a digital media abstraction. It might be documentary, narrative, interactive, game or a combination of different media types.
For this brief in SIM2, you will create a CONCEPT and PRESENTATION of your proposal for a project you will create in the Workshop Project module later this semester as an "interactive presentation" using Flash as the medium for your presentation.
Your workshop project can use any media that has been covered in the course to date. The project may be anything you like as long as it does not breach standards of decency that might cause offence to individuals or groups within the wider community or represent activities of an illegal nature. The project should have the capacity to be exhibited with other student work at the end of year exhibition. This project is an individual project.
Your project must represent 90 hours of class work in the Workshop Project subject & a similar amount of time outside of class - so it must be a project of substantial scope and content to justify 6 weeks of production. Don't forget - this unit of competency in SIM2 is called "Originate and Develop Concepts" - so as with the previous assessment task, concept development is important - you really need to work hard on your IDEAS.
