Jen White, Communications
I am creating a short film for an honors seminar on mass media objects (taught by Robert Tynes). I plan to take the spectacle of the Super Bowl and show what it says about American consumers by cutting the commercials together and showing sequences of images juxtaposed with factoids about life in America (for instance, alcohol ads and the number of people killed in drunk driving accidents each year). The project should be no longer than five minutes. I am planning on using the ideals of power, likeness, norms, gender roles and glass ceilings to portray American consumerism. It is a self-created and produced project.
