1st contact & 2nd contact

I created an email to contact the charities to give our ideas and help them in a media way.

To whom it ma concern,

Hi i am Leonora Alcaide, I am a student from Southwark college and am currently studying Creative and Media advanced diploma. For my course we were given this opportunity to help charities for our next unit, and I thought of your charity because, I would like to offer you ideas in your organization. Your charity was chosen by myself because a family member had cancer themselves, so i thought i'd pick your charity to help in collaboration to share my ideas to you.

Thank you for your time and i hope i shall see you soon to share my thoughts and ideas by arranging a meeting with you.

Yours faithfully,

Leonora Alcaide

This email was sent to 2 different charities and was edited to the nspcc charity.!!

I then got two replies from both of them and they both replied that they will contact me in 5 working days.! But i didn't get a reply so i need to contact different charities.!

Charity Ideas

Breast Cancer Research - http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/breastcancer/

*Promoting the breast cancer by creating a bold poster
This poster will include facts about breast cancer and how people can help save lives by donating, buying products and volunteering etc. or An event to help raise money for the charity.
This will include;
• People doing art posters to win a competition. And the poster can be shown for breast cancer research to promote and to raise money for the charity! The people designing the posters will need to put money in to enter the competition. At the end of the competition they can win a small prize.
• A group of people doing random events, for example; sitting a bath tub full of beans, running for an hour. All these can raise money by people sponsoring you.

* Creating a video about breast cancer – to encourage people to help. This video will be given out to a range of people from gender to ages.

The video will include; the short film is shown in colour, the woman has kept this lump for ages. After a few months she got checked up, and got told by the doctor she’s got breast cancer, then the video then pauses and goes black and white. Then you have a replay of the film although she goes to the doctor as soon as she sees the lump, then people start to help her. While the film is going on a voiceover is going on during the positive side of having breast cancer as people can help by giving money to charity to help women out there that have breast cancer. - A woman walks out the doctors, rather than a phone call. She looks emotional, a voiceover and a text is then shown and said “if only she’d gone sooner.” [Pause - Rewind]

* Leaflets, to tell people facts about breast cancer.
This leaflet will include facts on how you’ve got breast cancer and how you should prevent it.

15th Jan 09 Tate modern gallery

Had a book that Fiona created and got told we had to draw a couple of paintings that Fiona showed us!! about 2 paintings and 2 objects.

The paintings was about slavery from the past and the other painting was about a woman crying about a boy who died.

The two objects were bars of soap on a long string and the other object was a big box with random photographs on the sides.

Then we got told we had to choose two other things we like around in the gallery and draw it in the book. I chose two paintings.

What is Copyright?

Copyright is a form of intellectual property which gives the creator of an original work of authorship exclusive rights to control its distribution for a certain time period, after which the work is said to enter the public domain. Generally, it is "the right to copy", but usually provides the author with other rights as well, such as the right to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other, related rights. Copyright applies to any expressible form of an idea or information that is substantive and discrete.
Copyright was initially conceived as a way for governments in Europe to restrict printing; the contemporary intent of copyright is to promote the creation of new works by giving authors control of and profit from them.
Copyright has been internationally standardized, lasting between fifty to a hundred years from the author's death, or a finite period for anonymous or corporate authorship; some jurisdictions have required formalities to establishing copyright, most recognize copyright in any completed work, without formal registration. Generally, copyright is enforced as a civil matter, though some jurisdictions do apply criminal sanctions.
Most jurisdictions recognize copyright limitations, allowing "fair" exceptions to the author's exclusivity of copyright, and giving users certain rights. The development of the Internet, digital media, computer network technologies, such as peer-to-peer filesharing, have prompted reinterpretation of these exceptions, introduced new difficulties in enforcing copyright, and inspired additional challenges to copyright law's philosophic basis. Simultaneously, businesses with great economic dependence upon copyright have advocated the extension and expansion of their copy rights, and sought additional legal and technological enforcement.

My Presentation

The creative and media group was told to create a presentation about the history of Bermondsey. Everyone was aloud to choose anything about the area. I chose to do the whole area on how poor the area used to be and how the area is now.

            In my presentation I made a poster and a power point presentation. In the poster I mainly based it on how the living was in the past. When I presented my project I first spoke about Jacobs Island and how the area was a dirty smelly place. Then got into more detail about the Bermondsey area.

            I think that my presentation worked out well for me because I kept the audience entertained and made sure I created a colourful presentation. If I could re-do my presentation I think I’d slow down rather than rush to the next subject.
