We actually had made various adjustments to our presentation since my last blog post. Instead of having everyone speaking for about 40 seconds each we decided to each come up with points from our allocated time of day and put them into a Google document. We then refined the document as a whole to derive our finalised presentation script. We put the script into a voice generator which we found on Google so as to let the voice present apposed to our own individual voices.
The reasoning behind this was we wanted to generate some sort of robot voice as nowadays there is less and less human interaction. We wanted to experiment with the notion that in the future most aspects of life may be operated by robots. I have read a quote online by Kristen Soltis Anderson which further amplifies this notion of robots taking over.
"The robots are coming, whether we like it or not, and will change our economy in dramatic ways."
The script played over an approximately five minute video which had music in background and images on screen which related to what was being said at the time that they were shown. We wanted to take a slightly light hearted approach and include a hint of humour into the presentation. This being said, we mainly wanted to include facts about the environment which got our message across.
The feedback from John was good as was the feedback from Locks. However, it was noted that we should have credited the source for our chosen backing track and the images which we used. This is something that is important when it comes to intellectual property and it is something which I will be aware of for further projects like this!
Overall I was pleased with how our presentation went as I feel we took a unique approach to the task and presented it in a humours yet informative manner. I think my group felt the same as they were also very happy because of how it went. Although we were slow to get a start on this project, I feel we really tied it together as a group and came out with a successful outcome.
