We chose to undertake a project on plastic trash and pollution because we believe it is a subject that needs to be addressed. We want to raise awareness about how often people throw bottles trash without even realizing it. I think I did a good job writing the Commercial speech; nevertheless, I wish I had done more study on the topic.
Our video went over extreme heat problems in suburban areas and how that affects the community. I thought this was a good idea because, during the summer, my room drags in and contains heat. This is a problem that a lot of people face. My group talked about how the problem could be fixed with minimal effort. I think my group did well with picking locations to film in. The most meaningful part of making this PSA was talking about a problem I know first hand.
We decided to do a project on plastic waste and pollution because we feel like it’s an important topic. People throw bottles away without even thinking about it and we would like to bring awareness to that. I feel like I did well creating the dialogue for the PSA, I just wish I wouldve done more research on the subject.It was very meaningful to work together with my classmates as the year ends.
The contents of our video include examples and facts about plastic waste. Plastic waste is basically masses of mismanaged waste over oceans and land. I chose this topic because it’s simple and interesting. I did well by editing the video. I wouldn’t do anything differently because I put effort into the PSA. The most meaningful part of the PSA was my group’s collaborative effort to complete it.
Our video went over extreme heat problems in suburban areas and how that affects the community. I thought this topic was good as it isn’t one that gets as much attention in the world of environmental justice and sometimes people forget why it happens other than just climate change. We talked about mostly how things could get better if we take better care of our vegetation and plant trees in these environments. I think we could have had a more consistent filming session and better timing on that so editing could be more concise for sure. I think the best part about making the PSA is the sense of accomplishment for sure. Even though there were some bumps along the way I’m pretty impressed with what I could conjure given the circumstances of me having to be sick.
This video is about oil spills. I just kind of go more into detail about them. So personally I liked this topic because I do like to learn about the ocean and watch shows and stuff like that, but I wouldn't actually have a job that has something to do with the ocean. I feel like I gave good information you know not too much but not too little at the same time. If I could have done something differently I probably would have picked a different project just to have the chance to learn about something else. To me, there wasn't anything meaningful about this maybe for someone else but not me. This was fun to do though.
My group’s PSA is an air pollution warning in the format of an apocalypse. We chose this topic because we originally wanted to study the harm of fast fashion brands, i.e., SHEIN. However, that wasn’t a large impact on our country. So, we decided to settle for air pollution. I did well with planning the outline of the video. When we were given class time to work on the project, I remained diligent to complete the task at hand. I also served as a reporter within our PSA. In terms of doing things differently, I should’ve tried better at keeping my group on task. During class time, my group members were off task. In addition, we didn’t feel an urgency to complete this project. So, maybe we should’ve spent more time brainstorming how we could’ve made the PSA the best it could possibly be. The most meaningful part about creating the PSA was that this could be real life if we don’t take action now. Even though we tried to add humorous elements to the video, it could all happen in a matter of years. Overall, this was a fun project to make, and I’ll miss doing creative projects like this after graduation.
The video is a PSA on air pollution disguised as a dramatized apocalyptic world caused by increased air pollution. I chose this topic because I think it’s important to discuss because this is an issue that affects not just all of us but especially those most susceptible and vulnerable to it. What I liked most about making this PSA was going with the apocalyptic style. I’ve recently been into apocalypse scenarios and I really wouldn’t hold anything against someone who believed this could actually happen. What I think could have been done better is time could have been managed better, but despite that, we all came through and our project came out great.
This video is split into 2 parts about Sanai, Ainyah, and Walsend’s issues with food insecurity and their actual experiments. They also discuss what politicians (their target audience) could be doing to help citizens in Philadelphia gain better access to healthy, affordable food. I feel that the video itself is done well. I wish we could have made it a bit shorter to make it all one video but we wanted to give you all a full experience. The most meaningful part to me was our discussions. It really gives our perspectives on what we feel needs to be done and how it should be carried out to affect all citizens.
Air pollution is one of humanity’s biggest threats. Everyone will feel the effects of air pollution, especially those in poor countries. Air pollution is one of the world’s largest social justice issues. People of color and low-income people are disproportionately affected. Our video touched on a dramatized version of what might happen if air pollution worsens. We also talked about which countries are most vulnerable, and what we can do to resolve this issue. Our PSA was entertaining and provided very important information. Everyone should be aware of the statistics provided. We are glad that we were able to educate everyone on the effects of air pollution. It’s important that everyone is aware of how environmental and social justice are connected.
