Sometimes, going against the norm is not good, it can just create problems
I feel that my situation for the remediating project is different than most, and as a result, I am not sure as what I am going to do. Most people’s repurposing project involved transforming an essay they wrote into another form of written genre. So, for this project, they have a wide variety of non-written mediums to utilize.
For me, the situation is reversed; I repurposed a memoir I wrote into a video already, one similar to The Daily Show or Last Week Tonight. Now, I am not sure as to what medium I want to remediate this project into. I cannot think of a non-written medium that has a similar audience to the target audience of my repurposing video (generally curious young adults who want to learn things from a different and unique perspective). For me, some options that have crossed my mind is a podcast and an article similar to The Onion.
However, one possibility that I have been mulling over considerably is creating an animated cartoon of sorts, like Futurama or South Park. While this is still a video, the genre and style is vastly different from programs like The Daily Show. Instead of acting like a news reporter and directly giving information to my audience with a satirical twist, an animated show would involve me creating a story of sorts, one that has a plot where I could tie in the information I gave in the repurposing project. The reason why I am suggesting this is because of my target audience; while the audience would be less inquisitive about certain topics, they would still appreciate the humor that is presented. This would most certainly be reflected in the material; I would be less informative and more comedic if I decided to remediate my video into this type of show. Nevertheless, I could still include some informative elements into this type of show, which is why I have strongly considered this possibility.
However, I am still in debate as to what I want to do for my remediation. Since my target audience for the repurposing project was so specific, I am still exploring other forms of media perfectly encapsulates my target audience.
