It is described as "a chance to showcase the skills and abilities you have learnt in the program, and is an opportunity to do something that you otherwise would never have had the chance to do if it weren't for the program." -Most of the CreComm Instructors
A lot of students like to throw fund raisers and benefits. It's also common for students to write books, novels and blogs, and make Podcasts, documentaries and Apps. I can't say I'm much different from the other students.
My two ideas for an IPP are either A) a Documentary or B) a Podcast.
Real original, I know.
But hear me out...
Downtown Winnipeg Doc: I know you've read about it, talked about it and are sick to death about hearing about it, probably because you don't go there anymore unless there is a Jets game, but the goal of my doc would be to rectify the negative stigma which many people have attached to their idea of downtown Winnipeg.
I would like to interview people involved in the Downtown Biz, The MTS Centre, The Forks and 5468796 (Barcode) architecture firm, as well as people who live or work downtown.
However, in the words of my loving boss "Talking about change in downtown Winnipeg is like beating a dead horse."
(Google-ing "Dead horse images" was a bad idea).
Plan B) Podcast
Ideally, my Podcast would be modeled after CBC's Q. Instead of interviewing famous actors, singers and bands, I would interview bands from across Canada who are passing through Winnipeg on their summer Canadian tour. Or do a series of phone interviews, with a few songs from the band's EP or album. And finally, instead of a witty Jian Ghomeshi as the host, listeners get me, Josie Loeppky :).
I would market the show, turn it into a brand and make it into a series people can download for free or listen to it on 92.9 KICK FM.
I would love to get feedback on my ideas because I would like to make something that people would actually listen to or watch, and to really "showcase" my skills.
