Broadcast and Video Production I


Specific messages

Specific Messages

  • In everyday life, you exert considerable influence on how a specific message is received.

    • Ex. Smile/Frown


Marshall mcluhan

Marshall McLuhan

  • A well-known communications scholar who said over 40 years ago that “the medium is the message” (or the massage).

  • What he meant by this was that the media occupy as an important position not only in distributing the message but also in shaping the message.


Aesthetics1

Aesthetics

  • A branch of philosophy that deals with the perception of beauty and ugliness. It deals with the question of whether such qualities actually exist or just exist in the mind of the person viewing them.


Applied media aesthetics

Applied Media Aesthetics

  • How media, specifically television and film, shape the message for a specific viewer response.

  • The branch of aesthetics that deals with sense perception and how to influence them through image elements, such as light, space, time/motion, and sound. Focuses on TV, film, and other electronic audiovisual media.


Purpose of applied media aesthetics

Purpose of Applied Media Aesthetics

  • Clarify

  • Intensify

  • Interpret events for a large audience


Shaping the message

Shaping the Message

  • Applied media aesthetics places great importance on the influence of the medium on the message. The medium itself acts as an integral structural agent.

  • The process of clarification, intensification, and interpretation of events is based on selection and a specific use of aesthetic elements, the recipient’s perceptions are indirectly, and more often, directly manipulated.


Real life application

Real-Life Application

  • When you create a simple commercial, you are essentially manipulating the feelings, emotions, and behaviors of your recipients.

  • Ford Car Commercial Example.mpg


Manipulation

Manipulation

  • We may be aware of manipulation when watching blatantly biased editing, but most viewers remain largely unsuspecting when manipulated through subtle means such as lens distortions or specific lighting effects.

  • This is why you must make all your decisions as a producer of media within a sound ethical context.


Objectives for our study of aesthetics

Objectives for our Study of Aesthetics

  • Recognize, isolate, and evaluate the principles of media aesthetics within any given audiovisual text.

  • Sharpen our ability to think critically about aesthetic choices used in media production.

  • Master the knowledge necessary to make informed aesthetic choices and detailed production plans for our own audiovisual projects.

  • Articulate informed opinions regarding the relationship between media aesthetics and the culture in which we live.


Inductive visual approach

Inductive Visual Approach

  • When you go from details of the event to a general overview.

  • You begin a shot sequence with a close-up of a significant detail. This approach is suited to the small screen (TV).

  • On TV, a close-up usually carries more aesthetic energy than the long shot. This approach allows the viewer to not only see important event details but also to feel the full impact of the event.


Deductive visual approach

Deductive Visual Approach

  • Moving from the general to the specific or from an overview to event detail.


Reflection

Reflection

  • Which approach did you use in your Stolen Box Project?

  • How you could change and use the other approach?

  • What impact would it have on the viewer?
