Once on our bus journey to Blast Theory in Portslade we had to draw our journey of the bus in our sketch books of what we could hear. This is how mine came out
On Saturday, our group met up at the light house at 1 o’clock. We had a discussion for about an hour about how and where we were going to represent our work and what location everyone was going to hand out their leaflets. Also while handing out the leaflets we had to explain what our project was and how they could take part in our project and, if so, what prize they could win. There were three locations which were, Fabrica, Churchill square and the Brighton museum also a few others went round the pavilion gardens. I found it very nerve racking speaking to people at first about our project but after a while it got easier but then some people were quite rude. When asking people if they would like to take part in our project, most of the people weren’t interested while others would be ‘okay, yeah sounds exciting’ and then i would explain more about what they have to do and where about Lighthouse was.
It was very difficult to attract the target market. Also it would of been a lot better if we had permission to be on the site as everyone was worrying about if people said anything to them about what they were doing and what they were handing out. The whether made it more difficult because it was raining lots and everyone was getting moody and stressed out and then started rushing around getting to places which meant they were not interested and when we asked they would get quite rude with us. Our group also discussed how it was easier working in a group of three because the most confident person could do all the talking while the other two could get a bit stuck in and start talking to the people and would feel more comfortable with it knowing there not on there own talking. We all agreed that the advertising should have been a lot better and the signing outside the lighthouse because it wasn’t easy for people to go down to the studio and ask where the lighthouse is. It was also a bit embarrassing knowing that there was lots of paper to give out because, usually, when you hand out leaflets you only have one leaflet and we didn’t we had three!
My last thought is that the view-finder t-shirts looked good but could have been better as they didn’t really stand out and catch the people eye and make people go ooh ‘wow’.
