As I was looking at my previous outline for a multimedia narrative and story, I still like my idea but think it might need some changes. I was also contemplating how I could relate this narrative to the theme of Bob Ross. So here it is – Bob Ross’s paintings are often of natural scenes and nature, therefore it can be assumed that he has an appreciation for nature and the environment. I think that I can connect Bob Ross in one of the aspects of the multimedia assignments based on these assumptions and maybe by incorporating a Bob Ross work of the ocean. These are just some ideas of how I could connect Bob Ross, I am going to keep thinking about it and see if I come up with anything else.
As far as the actual narrative goes, I would still like to advocate for sharks and condemn the shark finning industry by exploring this idea. I think this is meaningful to the world because it promotes environmental stability and I plan to explore that idea by explaining how important sharks are to the ecosystem and the idea that without them oceans would become off balance. This is obviously important to me because sharks have always been my favorite animal – even as a young child. My niece also loves sharks and I feel like the inclusion of them in things like Baby Shark has changed the narrative of sharks in the world. So my idea is to take it to the next level and advocate for them through the narrative. I will be telling the story of the Shark and its importance. Hopefully, this idea will work for the final project narrative because I think I will enjoy it and be able to produce a good project.
One thought on “Final Project Ideas – Campaigning for Sharks?”
I think this is a great idea. Most of the shark stories I know of are basically monster stories, so the ecosystem perspective would be very interesting. you would probably have to come up with an outline, and then consider various ways to tell the story using digital media.
