    TCarter, this work does not begin to meet the requirements for the Visual Rhetoric assignment. I have asked in two Professor Posts pinned to the top of the blog that you read both your classmates’ first drafts and your beloved Professor’s remarks about the first second or two of their analyses BEFORE submitting a first draft. I’m glad you asked for feedback on this post, but the first recommendation I will make to you is that you follow those instructions as a guide to the amount of detail required for a thorough analysis.

    There should never ever be a 10-second segment described in a single paragraph, for example.

    You are NOT to include any notes about the sound track. In fact, you are to ignore the audio portion of the production completely. Watch the video without sound. It will help focus your attention on the visual aspects that are manipulating you.

    What is the significance of the racial/ethnic mix of the subjects chosen.
    Why does the camera move slowly in every shot?
    Why is everything in slow motion?
    Why does the first subject blink slowly when she could certainly have kept her eyes open for two seconds?
    Why does almost every other subject also blink or move their eyes?
    Why is everybody outdoors?
    How do the various settings contribute to the message?

    Does this help you understand what’s missing from your draft?
    Let me know when you’ve reviewed the drafts for oaktree and runnerd4 and my Replies to both.
    Then make your revisions and put this post back into Feedback Please.
