Transformation is the process of changing the way something is presented. In this assignment we will transform this article into a recorded interview. The original article is a news article from Georgia Tech’s “News Center” under the categories of “science and technology” and “earth and environment”. In our opinion, the current format of the information is uninteresting and lacks a sense of conviction. We chose an interview format in order to present the information in the article with more conviction, to broaden the article’s audience, and to allow them to better understand the benefits of the fabric and why it is so innovative. We believe that the interview is a better medium to use when presenting information as such because with interviews, people are asking questions that the audience wants to hear, in order to get direct answers. Interviews are very direct and personal and are great with connecting the information to the audience more.
To successfully revise our texts we will:
- All review the article together and mark key points that we believe should be mentioned in the interview
- Develop a “script” for the interview
- Assign roles (cameraman/ woman, interviewer, person being interviewed, video editor(s))
