Up Date 01.03.17

I have spoken to the model agency and they are not interested. I was given a name for The Herald however when contacting it there was no response.

I spoke to the SA and they said to just pop down and ask on the day if any students there would want to be interviewed. I did try and get something more solid, however that is all the assurance they could give me.

Plans still in place for Thursday the 9th with Ann.

Have contacted  DC publishing, they would have liked to help however are fully booked for the next few weeks- recommend contacting for future.

Up to Date;

So far I have contacted lots of people about interviews. I have spoken to two of them and they decided they did not have enough knowledge to be of any real use in terms of the subject matter. I have been speaking with a lady (Professional) and she seems interested. Though do not want to speak t soon. 

I have sourced a book that I think I will use in the interviews, and as a rough guide for some of the speakers.  

In terms of location, that depends on who I interview, 

Examples 



So I have spent some time looking at past examples of " Sexism in the Media" and was is everywhere, even in an add for a tie. So I began to look at sexism today, and although it is not as in-your face it is still very visible. 

Sadly I can't find images of future sexism in the media, that part with be more based on the persons opinions.

30.01.2017

I have contacted the media department for the college asking if anyone would be available for an interview from their staff. This would mean they have a good knowledge of the industry and its background. Waiting to hear back from them.

Posted on the City of Glasgow College page to see if I could get any help from media students- this would give me an up to date opinion and a range of views. Waiting to hear back.

Treatment- Sexism in the Media

Sexism. Past, present and future. We see it in our everyday life, we pass it without a second thought. How long has it occupied the media, the way it is presented? from who we see in TV adverts to what we read in newspapers and magazines.

Join us as we investigate the evolution of sexism within the media. Is it really gone? Did the feminists really win? or have we simply chosen to turn a blind eye?

Lets take it back a few decades, were women were targeted by cleaning adds, told a woman to keep house and cook dinner and men to get a job, work, make the money and let their wife deal with all the rest- including the kids. Hearing from industry professionals and looking at archive materials about a time long past. A time were society was less advanced or so we are lead to believe.

Although the past is important we can't forget today. We can't forget the media and its "new found" approach to attracting the masses. Today, we have products, and adverts, we have window displays, and gender discrimination. No. Not gender discrimination, more suggested norms. Asking for public opinions we find out the truth. Have we really moved past the abusive adds? blue for men and pink for women.

Moving on, we look to the future. Will history repeat itself or will the media truly evolve?

Start thinking about the modern world and the role the media play in shaping society. How the glossy covers and glamour magazines encourage you to see false ideals. Remember the past, recognise the signs in the present and embrace the future with understanding of this. Allow our speakers to tell you, the story and uncover the truth behind the air brushed images. 




Concept


Possible Topics

       Sexism in the media (main idea) 

Possible interviews- Social media teacher (Main Source)/ Industry worker
                                 Teen (F)- backup source
                                 Teen (M)-backup source
Tone - Casual

Basic Story Line;
                         Will be looking into how women and men have been shown over the decades. I feel this is shown best in terms of social media/ newspapers as a form of marketing.

I will look at how it "was", how it "is"...but aim to close it with how it "will be".

Will be 5 minutes long on screen.
Have a budget of 10 thousand pounds.

Pre-watershed (before 9pm) but will be broadcast at 8pm on Channel 4.


       Is watershed still needed in modern society?

Possible interviews- Industry worker (Main source)
                                 Teen
                                 Middle aged man/woman

Tone - Casual

Basic Story Line;
                         I will look at how TV has changed and how peoples interested have changed thee so called "Pre-watershed" laws and rules applied to our everyday Television (Entertainment)

Again, how it was, how it is and how it is predicted to go in the future.
