Video & the Rhetoric of Sustainability
PSA’s, slide share presentations, and documentaries are a mainstay of the discourse of sustainability in which scholars, activists, and policy makers aim to persuade individuals of environmental problems and how they can take action to solve those problems. As we watch the sample videos, please keep the following questions in mind for the discussion that follows:
- 1.The problem presented and the solutions the videos offer.
- 2.Describe sound effects and/or background music; Camera movement (panning shot, tracking shot: from above, below, in/out/circular; zoom in or out, slow or fast; zip pan; tilt shot; handheld shot; camera on vehicle); and POV (Does the film acknowledge the spectator, or do events transpire as if no one were present?)
- 3.Who is the intended audience of the video and of what does the video attempt to persuade its audience? Is one video more successful than another, why or why not?
