[SOLVED] Video Reporting

Assignment 6 guidelines – Video Reporting – due 5 pm, Monday, July 27 – (Final Assignment) Select one of the following topics for a five to seven-minute persuasive oral report. Describe a potential work-related problem caused by mistaken or misguided use of social media. Conclude with a recommendation to ensure a similar problem doesn’t reoccur. Describe a workplace situation in which fallacious reasoning caused both unnecessary conflict and expense. Conclude with a recommendation to ensure a similar problem doesn’t reoccur. Market yourself to a potential employer by convincing them you are an ideal candidate for a position. Demonstrate your understanding of the related duties and responsibilities, explain your suitability, and describe the benefits of employing you. Although it doesn’t necessarily have to be a position that’s currently posted, the job should be one you aspire to hold after graduation (or as a step up from your current post). Post your presentation to ‘Media Gallery’; include a short title in the ‘Name’ box as well as a self-evaluation of its effectiveness (four to five sentences) in the ‘Description’ box. Further Guidelines: Online audio-visual interaction is becoming increasingly common such as when job candidates are interviewed via Skype, FaceTime, or other real-time interactive platforms to save time and travel costs. Increasingly, many individuals post a short video report on their personal web site or social media page in order to market themselves to potential employers. Indeed, the ability to connect through video reporting is a skill that can differentiate you from others and significantly work to your professional advantage. This is as an opportunity to demonstrate you can write and organize information in a way that can be effectively communicated in a basic video report format. Frame your visual as a head and shoulders or upper body shot. Be yourself in order to appear natural, but also aim to convey a professional ethos. The essence of any effective business message is to come across in a serious-minded and persuasive way, so make your points clearly and convincingly. The only visual aid required in your presentation is yourself. It’s not just what you have to say but how you say it, so convey interest in your topic. Someone who looks or sounds bored can’t expect their audience to find them engaging. Someone who sounds rushed or disorganized will also be less effective. Someone who is difficult to understand is obviously unlikely to be persuasive. While an online oral report might seem like an easy task to some students, it can be a challenge to ensure your content and delivery come across the way you want, i.e. clear, meaningful, and persuasive. It’s not uncommon to have quite a few ‘takes’ before you’re satisfied. If you get 99% through it error-free only to misspeak a word or two in the last sentence, you’re certainly not alone. You may, if necessary, speak for up to eight minutes at the very most in order to present the content to your satisfaction. See the guidelines for recording and uploading your report. To make sure the video presentation software works properly with your computer, post a test video you can then check for acceptable visual and sound quality. You can delete any test videos you upload. If you have any problems with your own computer, use one of the UFV computers available to students. Value 10%

[SOLVED] Media Analysis

For this media analysis, you will analyze how one part affects the whole media production. Note that you should select only a single piece of media; you should not be discussing more than one film, for example. You should choose one1 of the following parts to explore: ? Genre: Explain how the production you chose fits into its genre. ? Camera: Analyze how the camera’s use (camera angles, for instance) affects the overall production. ? Lighting: Describe how lighting is used to enhance or detract from the production. ? Actors/Characters: Analyze how the actors OR the characters themselves enhance or detract from the production. ? Symbols: Explain what the symbols are and how their usage affects the overall production. ? Music: Describe how the music enhances or detracts from the media production. ? Sound Effects: Analyze how the sound effects enhance or detract from the production. ? Special Effects: Explain what special effects are used and how they affect the viewing experience. ? Comparison to a Literary Work: (Note: This option may only be chosen if the film you chose is also in print form.) How are the book and film similar? How are they different? Which is better, and why? Your purpose in this assignment is to explain how or why something works; therefore, you should not include a full summary of the media production. Instead, you can provide context where needed so the reader understands what is happening. The body of the essay must 1 Please review the rubric and note that you will not earn full credit if you analyze more than one of these components. focus on your analysis. You can use the ideas contained in the Media Analysis lesson presentation and the Writer’s Handbook link to help you. As with all college writing, your essay should have a strong thesis statement in addition to an introduction, body, and conclusion. Other than your chosen film, television show, and/or book, you are required to cite at least one other credible2 source for this essay. This resource from the course will help you understand more about evaluating sources. Moreover, if you use specific information from the media production and/or print source, such as a quotations, you should include your chosen media source on your Works Cited page, too. Use proper parenthetical citations or signal phrases, and be sure to include MLA documentation and a Works Cited page for this assignment (this resource from the course will help). Review the rubric to see how your work will be assessed on this assignment. Thesis hints: You might use these guidelines in crafting your thesis: If you are analyzing elements in a production: In (add your one chosen production), (add character 1), (add character 2), and (add character 3) were used to (add how they enhanced the production or explained the production’s message). OR If you are comparing/contrasting a book and film: (Add book) contained (add one aspect that made the book better than the film), but (add film) used (add one aspect that made the film better than the book) and (add a second aspect that made the film better than the book) to better capture the reader’s imagination. Here are more specific thesis guidelines: If you are analyzing elements in a production: In the movie The Lorax, the characters Lorax, Once-ler, and Alocius O’Hare were used to show how environmentalists are fighting against profit-driven industries that are harming the environment and depleting natural resources. 2 Please note: Basic dictionary sources, user-edited websites (e.g., Wikipedia, eHow, etc.), and sites that house databases of quotations are not considered “credible” sources. You will lose points in the Research category of the rubric if your sources aren’t credible. OR If you are comparing/contrasting a book and film: Even though the characters were portrayed mostly the same across the book and the movie in Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight, the setting in the movie was much more detailed, which made the movie a much better overall experience compared to the book. The guidelines for this assignment are as follows: Length: This assignment should be at least 500 words. Header: Include a header in the upper left-hand corner of your writing assignment with the following information: ? Your first and last name ? Course Title (Composition II) ?

D’Angelo (2017) explains that there is a direct relationship between civility and credibility. He points out that it is critical for professionals to keep this in the front of our minds.  Why do you think that professionals must maintain civility?  Do you agree with Greenblatt’s (2012) statement that the public respects civility but rewards rudeness?  Support your opinions with examples. https://prsay.prsa.org/2017/10/05/civility-as-professional-imperative/
