BCM241 Pitch

Hey guys, the video includes my pitch for the digital artefact. I basically chose this as my subject because I love watching sports of all kinds. I am a massive fan of F1, but I also love cricket and hockey. If anyone wants to go watch some sport, I would be down! And linking it to the topic because I am also studying to become a journalist, so looking into female sports journalism is something that I am very interested in.

Below is a schedule for the semester.

Week 1– find idea
Week 2– research ideas more to find a niche
Week 3– (I changed my idea so had to redo the first two steps).
Week 4– create pitch
– submit pitch
Week 5– begin to find articles and collect data
– create a Twitter for DA to instantly upload articles that are found
– weekly check-in post
Week 6– get together 4 blog posts for the assessment task
– continue work on DA
Week 7
Week 8– upload assessment task 2
Week 9– start to collaborate data for DA report
Week 10– record 5 minute video
– finalise report
Week 11– submit final assessment
Whilst I am going to be actively on the blog as my main form of media for the digital artefact I will also create a Twitter account to easily share any articles that I read for stats to share instantly to my audience.

I hope you enjoy the pitch and keep an eye out for more work on my D.A.

Here are some pictures of me trackside at the 2022 Australian Grand Prix, (the race was on my birthday).

    Hi Hailee,

    First of all I love the topic idea, great to see another sports themed project and I love that you have such a defined idea all sorted and ready to go. I like the idea of using Twitter and blog posts, and I like that you’ve provided some photos and a bit of background about yourself as a sports fan that helps develop your persona from the beginning of this project.

    A couple of suggestions I would include would be to try and build your autoethnographic persona by also including how you feel when you study content from male and female reporters, and combine that with the study of comments and engagement that you find. Also a little more content from lectures and readings might have come in handy here but I still think this is a really clear pitch that I’m looking forward to seeing grow this semester.

    Also, if you are looking for some female cricket writers to read and then study, I would recommend Firdose Moonda and Melinda Farrell’s work for ESPNCricinfo and Sporting News Australia, as well as Annie Chave, Georgie Heath and Abi Slade who have solid followings on Twitter and then link to their writing, which is usually on their blogs but sometimes gets used in other publications.

    Hope this helps, best of luck.

    Russ.

    Hi Hailee, I wrote a feedback comment here a while ago but can’t see it now, so I’ll just try to go over it again 🙂
    First of all I really like this idea, its obviously closely connected to media and the google search you provided shows just a singular example of a difference in public perception of male and female journalists. It would have been great to see a little more lecture content or links here, but I think what you have provided is a great snapshot of your niche and you can easily problematise that from there. I also like your time management chart and feel that if you are able to follow it you will have success in this subject.

    P.S – love to see that you are a cricket fan, if you ever need female commentators or writers whose work you want to study, I would recommend Firdose Moonda, Melinda Farrell, Lizzie Ammon, Georgie Heath and Alex Blackwell, and from there hopefully you can find a few more of your own.

    Cheers, Russ.

    What a great Pitch! I love the niche you have chosen and I am looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Here’s some feedback against the marking rubric which I hope you find helpful for future reference!

    Grading Criteria 1 – C
    – No mention of, reference to, or hyperlinks about the subject lectures, tutorial, or information on the Moodle page. However, you have clearly stayed up to date with the learning assessment task instructions as you know what needs to be done.
    Grading Criteria 2 – D
    – Great video, it was informative, professional, and well-sequenced! I also loved your inclusion of photo definitions and music, it made it very engaging!
    Grading Criteria 3 – P
    – Unfortunately, I found your media niche very broad, I believe this could have been improved by choosing a specific sports commentator to look at. There was no mention of the field site, specific research methods, or ethical considerations. However, you do have a schedule which is great! There are also no hyperlinks or supporting material, which brought it down.
    Grading Criteria 4 – P
    – You discussed ethnography and how you will research your field, which is excellent! However, I didn’t see any references, hyperlinks, or mention of lecture content, readings, or additional materials.
