WORKSHOP POWER OF THE MEDIA
The workshop ‘power of the media’ is mainly about image manipulation. Students learn about the power of the media by a preparatory lesson, in which the history of image manipulation is treated and in what way this works on a global, national and local level. Afterwards the students go to work.
They think about what kind of image manipulation they are going to adjust and in what form (this could be a movie-trailer but also a fictional commercial video). They write a script, form a crew and make a storyboard. After filming the students edit the film on laptops provided by DROPSTUFF.nl. In this way the students learn in what way media can manipulate and persuade.
