    You've been going on the wrong media... That's almost like saying "I hate YouTube because they have PewDiePie vids and I hate him".

    It requires so much creativity that it becomes a chore. I want to go in the media industry but the subject is awful. I thought it was watching films at GCSE lol.

    I am not very creative. Media would not be my cup of tea… I am more… sarcastic and short-lived. I think that puts me in the position to be a weather forecaster for Channel 5 :holmes: — better than nothing I suppose? :dontknow:

    I took it for GCSE and then again for A Level purely because nothing else was on offer. A lot of the times you may need to analyse a film, create a poster/dvd cover, come with up with a game idea, film idea and learning about the media industry. It has given me skills however but there is more I can elaborate on. Do you want to take it?

    To be fair a lot of people do want to hear about that sort of stuff, it is news.
    Do you not follow celebrity culture, listen to music, watch films? Would you not want to find out that a favourite musician/actor of yours had died?
    And you wouldn't want to know about your heads of state, and their affairs?

    Sure, I listen to music. Mostly old music though. No, I can still listen to their music. I couldn't care less about politics, not like my opinion matters, we've never had a democracy.

    analysing a film in what way? I know we do that in art sometimes but that is obviously in an artistic critical analysis/philosophical type way, how would you do that in media studies? No I don't want to take it I'm simply genuinely interested, it seems so foreign to me. What "topics"/projects have you done so far this year? and what do the AS exams entail?

    Also what about the media industry do you learn, yh pls do elaborate if you can be bothered to so late at night

    Fair enough. I would want to know because I believe that social interactions are guided around the media a lot. I talk about current affairs in politics, celebrity culture, etcetera on a daily basis with my friends, teachers and people I encounter everyday. I feel as though without engaging with the media there would be a lot more social disconnect.

    Out of interest, do you actually check sources of media a lot?

    Regarding your statement I highlighted in bold: Oh but it does! And your next statement is very bold indeed, what makes you say that 'we've never had a democracy'?

    Analysing a film in terms of camera shots and angles, setting etc really. And working out the intended audience and why they were targeted. That was more GCSE to be honest. And I'm doing an OCR Cambridge Technical in Media so it is all coursework based as my school scrapped the A Level version. My projects this year have entailed coming up with a film idea and writing the production schedule and everything about it. Creating film posters for a TV series and coming up with a game idea and doing case studies. And we learn a lot about the process of how films are made, how to write scripts and the inside process in terms of everything. I did want to do a Media degree but it'll get me nowhere so an English degree is miles better.

    Sure, on a global scale a lack of media would mean social disconnect. But nowadays' you see everyone on their mobile phones not even connecting with people right next to us. Media is either depressing or ridiculous and pointless..

    Multiple sources that I trust a lot more than the government as they have no reason to deceive.
