The quick soapbox task was quite good as it got us thinking about certain issues and how we should address the audience.
I decided to make a soapbox on University and how it’s a scam. My original idea was to have me in front of the green screen and saying the points like it was a teleshopping programme, however I find it hard talking directly at the camera so I kept messing up so in decided to give up, also my script wasn’t that good. I then resulted to just sitting down in-front of the camera and just talking about the points that I wrote down, then i would go on to say the good things about Uni, whilst talking I would bring up GIFs that would relate to the thing I was talking about.
My main points were to discuss about:
- Student debt
With these points I would explain the consequences that come with them and I would relate each point which would relate to the next point.
I got some feedback from the class and they said that I should of talked about the good things about Uni first then go on to saying the bad things about Uni as this will help put across a point and would leave the video on a low rather than a high.
