Audience research

My developing digital story needs to have an audience to be successful. so I must consider Who  will be  my audience for my project.

I found when i use facebook,if i post something information about rmit,my classmates and someone who intrested in rmit,they always  give me a comment when i use instagram,i usually post some pics about melbourne ,and i definitely like to tag some attracted with the landscape of melbourne ,so they will give me a like and communicate with me about how can catch the better views through the easy skills.

When we have spare time ,we always go to the cinema with our friends ,usually girls like love movie,boys perfer to action movie,and kids almost like cartoon movie.

Audience research is a systematic and accurate way of finding out about your audience. There are two main things that audience research can do:

(1) estimate audience sizes

(2) discover audience preferences

In the media industries, the equivalent to walking is broadcasting the programs. The equivalent of watching where you are going is audience research.

But when you are walking, you are doing more than simply move your legs, and watch where you are going. You will also have decided where you are walking to. Depending on what you see, you will adjust your steps in the desired direction. And of course, at any time you may change your direction of walking.

Then the effective way to do the audience research ,there are two way will help you to catch your audience as soon as possible:

  1. Instagrok research search engine for education It is not only just educational search engine,it also offers definitions and related concepts,and breaks down the search results into different types – websites, photos, videos and so on.
  2. DuckDuckGo privacy policy DuckDuckGo has everything you expect a search engine to have, including images, news and places, all while respecting your privacy. Great results without tracking you. That’s DuckDuckGo in a nutshell.

In my digital story ,i must find my audience by the right locate ,and it will be better for my promote and spread.

Hashtag-let more people find you!

What is tag?

Tag is a non-hierarchical keyword or term assigned to a piece of information (such as an Internet bookmark, digital image, or computer file). This kind of metadata helps describe an item and allows it to be found again by browsing or searching. Tags are generally chosen informally and personally by the item’s creator or by its viewer, depending on the system.(from wikipedia)

Many blog systems allow authors to add free-form tags to a post, along with (or instead of) placing the post into categories. For example, a post may display that it has been tagged with baseball and tickets.(from wikipedia)

An official tag is a keyword adopted by events and conferences for participants to use in their web publications, such as blog entries, photos of the event, and presentation slides.(from wikipedia)

A researcher may work with a large collection of items (e.g. press quotes, a bibliography, images) in digital form. If he/she wishes to associate each with a small number of themes.(from wikipedia)

what is hashtag?

A hashtag is a kind of metadata tag marked by the prefix #, sometimes known as a “hash” symbol. This form of tagging is used on microblogging and social networking services such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, VK and Instagram.(from wikipedia)

Just decide on the keyword you are targeting, place a pound sign in front of it, and you are all set!

Firstly when I saw the world hashtag ,I think of that are you serious?hashtag is so common to me ,I used it very frequentvly when I use my facebook,twitter,Instagram or blog.However when i finished this task ,I realized that hashtag is not only just great for small groups and attract the people to follow you but also a great way to organize your followers and get the word out about your brand.

This really made me consider my use of hashtags and how important they can be to promoting and marketing your product to your audience. They need to be relevant, catchy and state what you are talking about so that the audience know precisely what to look for without having to think too much about it. The spelling should also be correct and the hashtags themselves, catch but simple.

In my instagram,i used post some picture about melbourne,and i tag my pic with melbourne,so if the people want to see some news about melbourne,they maybe have a change to find me .

After my research ,i take to heart to consider i will use my hashtag in my project when i promote my project-rebuild bohol! And for encourage our  stealth audience can catch our  propose with i want the people who can see this event.Firstly,this is an event about rebuild,so I would tag some organization they care about rebuild,such like:RSC,WHO.Secondly,this is about children,so I also tag some organization they care about children.Thirdly,it is an event about music,so I will add some hashtag with music.Then ,this event will present at melbourne and it is about choir.In one world,I will try our best to let this event known by more and more people .

But I think Keep it Short may made your hashtag more easier to remember and spread.

I really believe that Hashtag can make it easier for people to find you and get  your ideas.

Delectable Mountains 6: Programming concepts 2

At first,i have no  ideas about code.after i finished these twenty lessons introduce programming concepts using ordinary language. Anyway, it’s aimed a children – in particular, girls – but it gives you  the best way to learn.and i realized that code is not difficult to us beginner to start,and finally i use code to paint my own ice art.And I find  code studio is a very convenient way to learn about computer language ,and through this system i can made my own digital story by a different way.

for (var count2 = 0; count2 < 6; count2++) {
  // create_a_circle
  for (var count = 0; count < 36; count++) {
    moveForward((10));
    turnRight(10);
  }
  turnRight(60);
  penColour(colour_random());
}
for (var count3 = 0; count3 < 3; count3++) {
  drawSnowflake('square');turnRight(30);
  penColour(colour_random());
}
for (var count2 = 0; count2 < 6; count2++) {
  // create_a_circle
  for (var count = 0; count < 36; count++) {
    moveForward((10));
    turnRight(10);
  }
  turnRight(60);
  penColour(colour_random());
}
for (var count3 = 0; count3 < 3; count3++) {
  drawSnowflake('square');turnRight(30);
  penColour(colour_random());
}

Take This Lollipop… I Dare You!

I review  three examples of interactive storytelling, and considering visual design, functionalityand structure. After that I think about how the viewer interacts with the story and how the story is told for a long time .

I totally be attractive by Take this lollipop.Firstly ,when I saw this topic ,I just can image as a child my parents told me that never take candy from a stranger.Then I google more details about this film.Take this lollipop is a 2011 interactive horror short film and Facebook app, written and directed by Jason Zada, which uses the Facebook Connect application to bring viewers themselves into the film, through use of pictures and messages from their own Facebook profiles. Starring actor Bill Oberst Jr.as ‘The Facebook Stalker’, the film acts to personalize and underscore the dangers inherent in posting too much personal information about oneself on the internet. The information gathered from a viewer’s Facebook profile by the film’s app is used once, and then deleted.(from wikipedia)

Then I open this website,and log in by my facebook account ,then the movie is start by a very weird and gloomy performance.Showing ‘The Facebook Stalker’ as a thin, creepy fellow, hunched over and typing at a computer keyboard by his urgly and dirty fingers, images provided from the accessed Facebook account begin to appear as the stalker types at his keyboard, and appears to search for the specific Facebook user who had granted access. The Stalker becomes more and more agitated as he scrolls through the discovered information, until he locates the home of the user, pulls up Google Maps, and finds directions to the user’s home from geographic data contained in his or her profile. With the user’s profile picture taped to its dashboard, the stalker is then seen driving in his car to the user’s location, apparently to perform mayhem.

At the end of the film, a screen appears with an image of a red lollipop containing a razor blade. Below the image is the viewer’s Facebook screenname and the name of the stalker’s next victim as gleaned from the viewer’s own profile.

Take This Lollipop is the 21st century re-imagination of that conversation, reminding consumers why privacy should be a concern. And, perhaps, why you should never trust virtual strangers.

It is very interested  that audience can attend this story by themselves ,if i talk about my digital story ,maybe i can use this style to make others like real experience and real life and their real reactions.

I really like to tell my digital story in this brief way,the perfomance and the music ,it all makes a story likes real just infront of your face.In my digital story or next project,i maybe can take this way to attract my audience.And if I use the audiences personal social media to attend my digital story,I think it would be lots of fun and attractive.

If you would like to be the star of your very own horror film, go ahead and try it…I dare you!

Hear the real voice–sound of my voice!

Do you know what  idea is not right?

Do you know what reason is it?

Comprehend what is?

Consciousness of it?

I would like to know the result of my own answer is: the idea is always sacrifice the long corner; intellect like caged bird; see self would not comprehend; know their fans throughout only a slight chance to have consciousness.

Previously seen a documentary about the deconstruction of epistemology, the modern view of the world thinks is an advanced, compliance, in fact, the scientific theory of quantum mechanics in the face of problems derived from the new worldview, there is no ability to accept objective science. Darwin’s theory of evolution and creationism wisdom might never compatible. This inevitably makes surprise that modern scientific concept really able to accept and absorb information more effectively it?

Reality keeps telling us, the answer is very shameful! UFO records everywhere, not only the government to stick to people also turned a deaf ear. This seems even more reason not to conceal a secret to avoid panic. But we humans existing worldview really not interested in questioning the existence of those additional principles, so only high-technology sector will be issued so stupid conclusion: Pulse telescopes to see the depths of the universe, but have not found the Buddhist description world. Personally think that this speech is definitely not up to 3 years of age or IQ. He happens to be the most representative of our human and technological achievements.

Anyway the film, describing a cult instructor and his girlfriend sneak suspected, while the recording side of the communication process is intended to expose the cult. Cult leader claiming to be from the future, through the time came here to rescue some people. This kind of old-fashioned doctrine of eschatology really can not see the new. But in the end the police to arrest those who sneak into the leader of the process, there is an incredible process, the details seem to tell us that we see and understand, it seems that something was amiss. It is deeply entangled, I would like to participate in the first line of the play is not only a teacher, even the director himself was unable to clarify this entangled state, and thus is a reflection of us as a derived audience. Will find that we actually are so weak on the details of such discrimination, powerless.

Why?

Anyway, through the film we usher in a better understanding of the plight of self-knowledge and self-concept of opportunity. Such a seemingly minor problem determination in the face, except we think they are right, it would be no law. One, we reflect on the question, the other side, we have turned the limitations of our intellect?

Filmmakers as arts thinkers, able to achieve this in the field of ideas or, reflection or, indeed already is our highest human self-awareness hard. We humans can not say that itself is eat all day long, lazy category, but in the ability to self-understanding in fact it is stretched, no breakthrough. Why are we so unable to break through the cognitive approach for real? Perhaps the reason is that our doubts and suspicion itself does not last long, in fact, in the final analysis is to deny, deny everything that we can not cognitive level, although it seems that there is only a hair’s breadth of the truth from us.

This movie is very conscious of conceptualization .the main point of the story has confessed , the characters in the narrative to establish . The film’s subject matter is very interesting, as God stick pieces , for care of the household of the antecedent summary still very interested, but in the opposite pattern , it is not  good for me.

In my digital story ,i definitly will tell a story somewhere like this movie ,let audience can not guess what will happy in the end.

USEING SKYPE–Convenient way to communicate

Skype is an instant messaging software , it has the necessary IM features such as video chat, voice conferencing , multiplayer chat , transfer files , text chat and other features. It can free high definition voice conversations with other users , you can also call the domestic and international calls, whether fixed telephone , mobile phone, PHS can dial directly , and can achieve call forwarding, SMS and other functions.

I use the skype for the first time because I should keep in touch with a good friend who  studying abroad,for saving expensive international call charges.we use skype to communication every weekend.so i totally can say that I’m a huge fan of Skype.

In the course CMWP,our first group project about digital storytelling need all the group members keep in touch to make this project running good with the schedule.Because each member have their own schedule,so most of time we can not communicate face to face.so the skype give us a huge help.after our calsstime ,when we have time on the night,we can use skype with our group members in order to make sure our project running.

Unfortunately,because the net can not keep stable,when we use skype ,we almost face the problem of signal delay.and the other persons voice always delay for several minutes。it can made us lost our patient.

To be honestly, now I  use skype in my daily life  rarely, because there are many new  Communications tools appears, in my country , wechat was  very popular , we can call each other by our cellphone like facetime by internet without any phone charges .

However,in the future our group need to contact a lot ,if skype can not improve their use system,we definitely will choose wechat or facetime instead of skype to have conversation with members.

So,it has no successful  forever,we should always improve ourself for not be Oblivion.
