300 word essay


[Luke, Kassem, Imogen and Mikael]

For our news package we brainstormed idea's for our project to be presented on a news show lasting one-minute. The idea had to relate to student life. We started developing idea's about student life, the idea's that we came up with was;

  • Drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Music
  • Finances
  • Student Fees
We then decided to choose Alcohol as our main focus of the project. Our main aim with this idea is to try and warn students about the effects and dangers of alcohol. Some of the effects being financially and some of the dangers being the risk to your body.

Next, we gathered facts and statistics about Alcohol.

"With cheap deals on alcohol in student unions and deals aimed at students in other bars, cost isn’t much of a barrier to drinking at university. And with those deals extending to weeknights, students can often go out anytime and drink cheaply. However, spending does add up - The National Union of Students estimates that the average student spends £675 a year on socialising." - 13/12/2011, http://www.drinkaware.co.uk/alcohol-and-you/work-and-study/students?gclid=CI3j4KyA_6wCFQUhtAodyhSNTg
This is Secondary Research, we want to gather information ourselves which is Primary Research so we decided to interview students asking questions about Alcohol, to gain more facts and statistics.

All that was needed now was some General Views to use as cutaways during the package, these general views will be edited with the interviews into one sequence ready to be presented on the live broadcast.

Throughout our research and filming, we always took copyright into consideration.
