Our project about video games started in September when we were asked to do a project using different media formats to solve a problem of our choice. All 5 of us are pretty into games, not addicted, but we can play for a good few hours. As this was the one interest the whole group had in common so we pursued this idea. At first we thought we’d host a Fifa Tournament at the Manchester Metropolitan Student Union and show that people do come together and socialise whilst playing video games but after much brainstorming we decided not do that (fun though it would have been). Instead we came up this as our problem: ‘A lot of people assume that playing video games is detrimental to people’s social skills but this is not necessarily true’.
But how are we going to do this? Well, at first we decided on doing a documentary and attempt to get it shown in top retail stores and 3rd party gaming places but we realised this was too much of a big task for our low budget and not many big companies would be interested. Then the light bulb turned on, the world wide web, what better way of getting our film seen by as many people as possible? We then scrapped the documentary idea and decided on to make our video more fun and make it not only interactive, but factual and a quiz.
As I write this the film is currently in the editing stage, so for now here is a poll which I would like you to answer.

It’s time to celebrate Folks, Sandeesh Samra has got the famous line ‘your fired’. Been a long time hasn’t it. I’ve never disliked a candidate so much for being lazy. She only tried to shine when she was project manager, ironically tonight. Am not saying she was a bad person, she was in-fact quite smart, but hiding yourself to the final cannot work in this kind of show.
Tonight’s show was a really good episode, the two teams had to sell personal DVDs to the public by putting them in a blue screen movie, Stuart’s team chose to do racing cars and aimed it at children and Sandeesh’s team decided to do skiing for all ages, reading the info for tonight I didn’t like the sound of it but like Sir Alan said himself, it took the candidates out of the comfort zone. I wanted Sandeesh to go out but not to such an idiot, the other project manager tonight was Stuart Baggs, how annoying is he can I ask. He was lucky to even win tonight, he cannot lead the group. If they gave him feedback he ignored them and when there was no feedback he kind of pretends that they have given them feedback and puts words in their mouths and explain that is his overall decision. And he is also cocky as well. Be cocky if your being a good business man, he isn’t even close to being a paper boy never mind working in business, Stuart-to-go campaign under way already.
The costs between the two teams were quite close tonight. Sandeesh’s team would of won if they didn’t open their stall in the mall an hour later.
So now Sandeesh is gone I’m still not sure who I think is going to win, but just for fun I’ll give you a prediction for winner. My prediction at this moment in time is Jamie Lester because so far he hasn’t done anything crucially wrong, he speaks well and he has done consistently well in all tasks.
Next week is Crisp Selling, lets see what this brings.
