Well, what you have here is a speech about how awesome MUD is. My question is: What’s the story? Did you follow the creation of an issue from start to finish? That would have a built-in narrative progression. Take a look at this documentary. It’s about Vogue, yes, but it tells the story of Vogue by taking us through Vogue doing what it does: http://www.firstmondayinmay.com/synopsis
What is your multimedia? Is this primarily a written story (not more than 400-600 words. Be sure to review the assignment). Is it video? Think about the way you’re telling the story. The multimedia piece and written piece should complement each other, not repeat each other.
Looking forward to seeing the final product.
When it comes to the spread of culture and embracing the youth, more and more attention is being focused on the younger scene. From art, to music, and even social issues, the many different cultures in which play a part is growing daily. With this growth the appearances of new and independent ventures striving to bring many different sources of “fresh” unique talents and minds are providing a new view in terms of culture.
Within this growing likeliness for independent work, self/cultural expression, and the influence of youth MUD Magazine is making waves to create a foundation for the wide variety of people who are creatively expressing theirselves themselves, as well as their culture through curation, photography, music, and many other creative directions incorporating individuality.
MUD Magazine is an independent publication inspired by “a love for our hometowns” as well as the many different arts and music that spawn from the cracks of each unique street. MUD is striving to bring and capture southern culture to the world by showcasing an abundance of “talents, work, and spirit of individuals across the region and beyond”. Punctuation goes inside quotation marks = Associated Press style (which is what we’re using in this class since it’s journalism).
My Midterm story will be on the Independent publication know as MUD Magazine and will follow their second official appearance at Austin’s very own music festival South by South west. “SXSW” being a staple in live music to date is a platform for new artist and organizations to be put on the forefront, with hundreds of performers flooding the streets of downtown Austin. MUD, having grown substantially from previous years will be hosting their very own events and artist.
During the festival i will collect images of the cultural environment MUD resides in, as well as the people who work everyday to see the spread of content reach the corners of the world.
I will also Interview one of MUD’s publishers to:
- Gaining insight on what MUD has to offer
- Figure out why MUD is here at SXSW
- Find out what MUD aims to do in terms of culture and youth
- Lastly ask why people should care about the work MUD is doing in general
