Hi Molly; My first question for you is: What is the project? I read that you are not interested in political activism (I think for you that means not about political candidates or political figures), but are perhaps interested in activism around animal rights or eco rights. Okay, that's interesting. But which one? Both are incredibly broad in themselves. What I was hoping in this proposal was that you'd give me a very specific, concrete project that was centered on a very specific, concrete issue.
Activism is definitely very broadly defined. I think what you need to do is choose what issue, under either the animal rights or eco (environmental)? movements, is compelling to you, and what do you have to say about that issue.
What you also need to do is explain exactly what the project will look like. Remember, you only have until the end of the semester. You mention a 15-20 minute video report. What do you mean by that? what will it look like? What will be included? How is a video report different from a documentary? Do you have time to shoot a video that long?
for the pitch session for next week you'll need to answer all of the specifics above in 5 minutes. Think about narrowing way, way down to something that's do-able, that's specific, and that shows your voice.
Hi Anna; The information in your Lit. Review is well organized. You'll need to work on writing issues for the final draft that you give me at the end of the semester to accompany your project. I'll scan and email you the copy that I commented on. I suggest you get help from someone to do a good edit on that paper. Otherwise the sources and organization are good.
