Year 12 Media - Coursework Blog Commentary


















I have been closely scrutinising Media blogs looking at the standard of research and planning. I have broken the blogs down into four distinct areas:

Those with obvious:

Blogorexia - A very 'skinny' blog with little meat on the bones! Some effort is evidenced but posts are too brief and lack depth, application of meadia language and or critical engagement in a consistent manner.

Blogstipation - Writer’s block. A solid blog with some sound/good elements but not yet fully realised because of Blogstipation. 

Blogathy - Weak blogs displaying a lack of engagement with the coursework and a 'I can't really be bothered' 'I don't care' attitude. 

Blogopotamus Syndrome- A lot of long posts that need punctuating with evidence of practical production work (continuity sequence, animatic, rough cuts, sound, final cut) and examples (Youtube videos/images etc.) Posts may lack attention to detail and may be waffly in nature.

Blogorrhea - A high output of articles and engaging with the coursework blogging on a regular basis and frequently updating reader of progression. Posts are not always but often likely to be short bursts and lack real attention to detail through close analytical study. 

Then there's the:

Blogbusters - High end blogging - the Hollywood of the blogging world. Personalised with a strong sense passion and engagement. Consideration of design and navigation for the reader; blog clearly communicates genre and production processes in an interactive and engaging way. Analytical, good use of media language and thoughtful, well constructed posts. 

OK - So here is my assessment of blogs so far:
