#BCM241: Cinemas – Strangers in Public

Hagerstrand’s three human constraints… and carpool karaoke with FLOTUS

  • Capability (can I get there?)
  • Coupling (can I get there at the right time?)
  • Authority (am I allowed there?)

Hagerstrand’s Time Geography: http://escholarship.org/uc/item/2t75b8sj#page-1

Cinema spaces

Audience participation at cult cinema events is counter to the typical discourse on cinema viewing:

The end of cinema?

 

or the evolution of the ‘cinema event’?

Cinema as a consumption of place (see Hubbard, 2003) – Gold class, boutique cinemas.

Consider the consumption of space this week, as we ask you to plan and attend the cinema – how did Hagerstrand’s constraints come into play?

Ideas about ‘home’ are changing – connectivity.

Alone…but together?

Changes to traditional family life…

Activity and – 1st BLOG POST THIS WEEK:

Try to return to your previous interview subject and ask:

-find out how the internet is changing practices and spaces

– what kind of internet access is there (if any?) what kind/how many devices? What kind of data plans? Is there access to the NBN?

-if no internet, why? Personal choice, or difficulty accessing (either the internet, or perhaps lack of affordability of devices?)

THEN: compare this to the themes you uncovered from your TV interviews – any overlap?

Here’s a sample of ‘best practice’ from last year: https://igoogledthisname.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/the-blue-pill-leads-to-a-short-movie-but-an-enjoyable-life/

PAST PROJECTS:

THIS WEEK’S BLOG POST  “THE PITCH”:

The final blog that you will submit next week. This should be a proposal for your final digital storytelling assignment: think about what interests you in relation to media, audience, and place? and how might you present this?

*We are expecting you to be ethically bound by the MEAA Journalist Code of Ethics, available on Moodle*
