While Assessment 1 focused on a specific text (and its industry and/or audience implications), the aim of Assessment 2 is to discuss the implications of a specific technological change in the screen industries.

Your video essay should:

Discuss the textual, industry and audience implications of the technological innovation

Contain a combination of still and moving images and voice over exposition. You can ‘grab’ video footage from online sources using a tool like videograbber: [url removed, login to view]

A voice over script should be presented as a word document uploaded separately to your video essay. This script should show evidence of substantial research – at least 6 valid sources (all research sources should be bibliographically listed at the end of the script).

Take the form of a legitimate academic video essay. That is, while the video should be engaging and technologically competent, the focus should be on presenting high quality research about your chosen screen innovation.

Be made with whatever video editing software is available to you.

Be presented as a single video file (details for submitting this to follow).

NB: For the purpose of this assessment, your work is covered by the fair use clause in the Australian copyright legislation. Therefore, you can use materials for which permission has not been sought. However, you should be aware of the restrictions of this exception available here: [url removed, login to view]

The video essay should be between 4 and 6 minutes long and the voiceover script should be approximately 750 words.
