I’ve never had any assignment like this one before, and I’m enjoying it!
I feel like a successful re-mediation won’t necessarily be a good piece of writing or even have well-articulated and logical verbal language (in a video or podcast), but will demonstrate sensitivity to a new audience and to the new medium through which the message is communicated. I’ve never been able to practice the skill of being a flexible, adaptable writer before, but I can see the relevance in knowing how to reach completely different people and in a completely different way, but present the same message, and maintain a consistent purpose.
For my project, I’m re-mediating an argumentative journal article into a podcast one might hear on NPR. I’m excited about mixing and mashing up the paper into the opinions and commentary of members in the talk show, but mostly about having no set format I have to force my language into. It’s all up to me!
Ahh sweet freedom…kinda makes me feel like this:
Enjoy these precious few weeks of beauty, friends.
