Violence in the Media

    Violence in the media is at an all time high, and perhaps the result is the increase in mass shootings on campuses and elsewhere around our country. Those who are sensitized become victims of creating crime. A sad state of our “freedom of speech”. As college students you are more aware of the gaming violence than my generation (in the 40’s). One thing you might also want to consider is all the violence on Prime Time tv such as the CSI series, Criminal Minds (now there are two seperate series), and the plethera of other cop shows. Perhaps my generation watches these more and for me they sensitize, yet also create an unneccesary anxiety. Is our world actually as violent as these shows imply?

    I liked the voice over, it is a nice change from the other videos. I liked the way the video opened. Good facts used within the video about the impact of violence in the media.

    i liked the video clips instead of static images. I personally had a very hard time adding images and i have alot of respect for all the dynamic changes that happened.

    Definitely the best video produced

    I really like your topic. In our vlog, we talked a little about becoming disconnected from our previous generations. Things that are accepted today would not have been the norm 50 years ago.

    Violence in the media has always been something that I have been interested in and curious about. Do you believe that violent video games have an affect on young minds? I definitely do and think you did a wonderful job in depicting this idea.

    Your use of well known images in society today really helped your message. This is something I also did in my video. Good job.

    Good job!! The video was nicely put together and doing a voice over was very effective of getting your point across.

    Well said. There is a lot of violence in the media that seems to be getting worse and worse as time goes by. Nice video!

    The voice over worked very well with the images, the “assassination” ending really helped emphasize your point.

    I liked the use of different film and video game clips in the video. It helped to prove your point that violence is everywhere in the media.

    I think you bring up a good issue, its true: when is it too much and how much does it actually alter of views on violence

    I like how you combined voiceover and images to make your point about violence in the media. I thought the video was very straightforward and made an excellent point!

  16. March 10, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    The voiceover combined with clips rather than still images made this much more engaging for the viewer, nice job!

    I like how you combined images, voiceovers, and clips together. This is video/message that will always be relevant because violence seems to be everywhere.

    Good job guys! I really enjoyed the clips along with the voiceover narration. I used still images along with voiceover narration in my video about the effects of violence on children however I believe by using clips instead of still images for your video, it was much more effective and interesting for the viewer! I definitely will keep that in mind the next time i have to make a class presentation!

    I feel like your vlog and mine both speak to the effects of media on culture and society. Both are both important topics that relate to cultural studies and media.

    These points are absolutely true. Do you think that perhaps because of the immense amount of violence in the media that we have become desensitized to, we have shifted our national ideals about war? Are we headed for a more violent future led by the youger generations that were influenced by Call of Duty when they were 18?

    great job guys! really slick editing.

  22. March 10, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    We chose to look at clothing and those kinds of media messages, while you guys looked at violence. Similar topics certainly.

    good job with the voice over and editing well put together.

  24. March 11, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Great job on the video! This message is extremely valid- I have seen so much violence in media throughout my life, and it’s not the best thing. You did a great job with the voiceovers and choices for clips from movies.

    I can not agree with you more on this issue. I can not stand how kids are being exposed to weapons and war. I truly believe this has a huge impact on the way a child behaves. I think this argument draws upon the fact that children are impressionable. When little kids see older adults beating up “bad guys” they want to be those heros. We took a similar stance in our video discussing how children look up to free style skiers and see them bumping music in their headphones, and smoking in the ski line.

    I fully agree with this message I look at death in media every day. And more and more I find myself not caring if people die; its a normal thing. On the other hand I cannot handle seeing a dog die, hurts my soul! Good job

  27. March 11, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    I never thought of it this way. Great job

    Nice video! You all contribute and the video clips work perfectly with what you are trying to get across

    really cool clips.. intense

    I really like the video and think that you make a really good point. Your clips especially show what violence is like in the media. While they are different subjects, I think that you guys have a similar idea to the Vlog that Chelsea and I did about women in the media. It seems that people are becoming desensitized when it comes to violence and sexualization.

  31. March 11, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    This was a very interesting video. I liked the way you edited it as well. Good points about how children are becoming more and more used to violence in the media, and are often emulating it. What do you think the long term effects will be? Other than we are just sensetized as we grow? Is it changing our society and the way we interact. It was interecting to see some of the negative affects that can result from the media. Really great job, very well produced!
