Title: The Fax Machine Taught Me How To Read
Description: This piece is the result of the prompts, storyboarding activities, and a peer review type of exercise. Recording proved to be difficult with lack of equipment, but working with what I had led me to explore media options I hadn't worked with before and realize how equipped even the cheapest piece of technology is for this kind of multimodal project. I opted to splice the piece together with examples of the commercials I speak of in the narrative, not only to give the viewer a break from slower parts of the piece, but also to give validity to the statements I make. Transferring these videos from old video tapes proved difficult and several of them ended up pretty grainy. Although I wrestled with the idea not to include the commercials, I feel the decisions to incorporate them into the video was a wise one.
