Today I continued with my Discrimination project. I worked more on the posters that we needed to make for the product, today I focused on making the posters for Transphobia and Sexism.
The transphobia poster is made up mainly of a transgender bathroom sign with some text at the top and bottom of the page, it is rather basic at the moment however and I would like to expand upon it further at some point.
The sexism poster I completley redid as I was not happy with my previous final product when it came to that poster. Currently there isn’t a lot on it at the moment due to having started from scratch, however I have ideas for what I want it to look like and am confident that I can get it done.
Today I did some more work on my Discrimination powerpoint and Star Wars product.
I found some examples of discrimination in Radio and other media shows. One such example was a Christian radio station that legitimatley thought that homosexuels caused natural disasters.
Otherwise I also did some more work on my Star Wars product. I added a list of features that I would like to see in the final game, as well as updating a few old sections so they were either phrased better or incorperated some of the new information that I had added in the features section.
Today I did more work on my Discrimination project, I tried to find examples of different kinds of discrimination in TV, Video-games, I found it quite difficult as a lot of the sources google turned up did not relate to what I wanted to find, I had to use Advanced Search in order to find things related to the project at all.
I found it somewhat difficult to find problems related to Transphobia as a lot of the results were articles talking about shows that weren’t transphobic or didn’t include transphobic themes. This meant that it took far too much time to fins an example of a transphobic TV show. I hope to have this project finished by next week at least.
Over the course of the weekend and today I worked on two different projects, my Star Wars marketing project, in which I had to design a new product based on the Star Wars franchise. On which I decided to create an RTS game.
The second project was the Discrimination unit, in which we had to create a powerpoint showing examples of discrimination in different mediums, such as film and video games. From there we had to create a product to stand against discrimination. I have not yet made the product, though I am quite close to completing the powerpoint so hopefully I can move onto that soon.
