VCE Media 2020

The media is ubiquitous in today’s world. Working on a personal, local, national and global level, media is deeply embedded within life and culture. It entertains, teaches, informs, and shapes audiences’ perception of their lives and the worlds in which they live.

Stories in all their forms are at the heart of the media and its relationship with audiences. Through stories narratives are constructed that engage, and are read, by audiences. Representations of ideas, realities and imagination are constructed and deconstructed, remixed and reimagined with ever increasing technological sophistication, ease and speed to engage audiences. Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority VCE Media Study Design

For my Media SAT I created a Photographic Narrative that explored the themes of family and change. My inspiration is from the stories told by my parents and grandparents about their migration story from the Philippines to Melbourne, Australia. The autobiographic genre not only tells the narrative of my grandparents but also allows audiences to view it from their own perspective. Thus, the narrative is open to interpretation, for example through the blank page that can be interpreted as whatever the viewer desires.

My film is a short documentary that focuses on the impact social media has had on teenagers and young adults. I chose this topic because many young adults and teenagers often compare themselves to others on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, as many influencers often only show their life as a highlight reel and do not show that they have bad days as well. I took inspiration from Ava DuVernay who is a producer that has made When They See Us and 13th, which informs audiences about issues happening around the world.

My film is short horror comedy. I chose this genre so I could make my audience laugh and feel unsafe in the same situation. I decided to combine the two genres to get more emotion out of my audience and to confuse them by making them feel two conflicting ways throughout the film.

For my Media SAT I created a short travel film. My intention was to promote Victoria, as I found that most people preferred visiting other countries when Victoria had so much to offer. Throughout my folio I explored different photographers and YouTubers and their styles. By doing so I was able to incorporate their style to create my own. I looked at their use of camera and transition through the editing stage.

For my Media SAT entitled The Culprits I created a photography folio originally supposed to be a short film that explored the theme of good vs evil. My inspiration was taken from directors Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino who explore the genres of crime and drama in their films such as in Martin Scorsese’s film Goodfellas and Quentin Tarantino’s film Pulp Fiction. It follows the storyline of four criminals who are taken in to be questioned and interviewed by two detectives for their crimes however they fool the detectives by creating fake stories that sound real and convincing and end up escaping and get away with their crimes.

I created a short documentary that focused on my own disability and what life is like living with it. My intention was to create a piece that would enlighten and inform my audience of the hardships people with Tourette’s and seizure disorders face on a daily basis. I was inspired by other Tourette’s documentaries I had viewed and the stories being told within them, and decided I also wanted my story to be heard, showing the real side of this life.
