The media fair event is held once a year at Yokohama International School by Grade 10s. This media assignment will allow us to explore different topics and types of media. This was a great opportunity to learn about new topics and text types.
Shishir, a student of Yokohama International School spoke to us about “Captain America Civil War”. Shishir has told me about the things the creator of the movie did to gather audience and what they did to the poster to show us a bit of what is on the movie. He showed this by using 5 different types of text types, Article, Trailer, Poster, Comic, and Movie. All this showed different ways of gathering the audience. Shishir had a very interesting poster. He had followed the color scheme of the movie which is Red and Blue and although some texts were scattered, it was still an organised poster in general.
Rica, a student of Yokohama International School spoke to us about “Black English” and what effect it has on us. She gaves us some examples and one of them was “I has a dream”. “I have a dream” is a famous line said by an African-American but Rica mentioned that if he had used the Black English, he wouldn’t have had as many supporters as he did. Rica had a nice poster. She had shown 5 different types of text types which are Advertisement, Web Q&A, Cartoon, and Tv. All this gave different examples of “Black English”. If she had planned out the space more nicely, the poster would’ve looked nicer but like I said, the content was very interesting and I think I would look out for Black English when I see an African-American around.
Tyler, another student of Yokohama International School spoke to us about “Disney buying Studios” which the content was mostly on Disney buying Starwars. I have learned that he is a huge fan of star wars and had a lot of complaints about Disney buying Star wars. This is because if Disney now owns star wars, they would release the films more frequently which means that the fans wouldn’t need to wait in anticipation. I thought this was interesting because usually, if you like a film, you would want it to come out more frequently but in Tyler’s case, it was the opposite.
