Smart objectives

Strategic – I am going to create a newspaper consisting of 20 pages. Based on Hull for tourists and students.

Measurable – As a measurement, i will produce a Gantt chart so that i will track my progress throughout. It will include pre-production, post and the final product. This will be evident via links and screen shots on my blog.

I know that this project is achievable as i live in Hull, therefore content about Hull will be fairly easy to get. Secondly, after getting the initial content i will be working alone.

Agreed – It is possible as about 60% of information that can go in my newspaper i already have obtained from previous journalism pieces.

Realistic –  The Ipaper is around 30 pages long. Therefore i think a realistic measurement would be that i create around 20 pages and have 10 dummy pages.

Timed – The project completion date is the 10th of may 2013, therefore i have created a gantt chart to make sure all the work is completed and handed in in time.

Change of plan – Self initiated project

Unfortunately, some shops in the Hepworth arcade did not want to participate. Others, bosses were too busy, meetings etc. Lastly, some people’s shifts clashed with my lectures, therefore my plan is not moving quick enough to meet my deadline for work.

Although this plan was feasible over a longer period of time,  i have learnt that not all clients are reliable.

Therefore, i have decided to completely change my idea and create a project based on a newspaper design lecture. My new project will now rely on myself and my journalistic skills.

My new plan consists of creating my own newspaper using Indesign. (Adobe software) I am going to create a newspaper styled magazine which has a similar features to the I paper, only, based in Hull.

I think that this is a good idea especially from the point of view of advertising and exploring new genres of writing for myself.

I would like my newspaper to be around 30 pages. As a goal i want to achieve 20 pages, any more pages created would also be good. But, ideally having 10 dummy design pages.

Indesign workshop

Today our tutor showed us some tips on how to create a front page of a newspaper using in-design.

Here are my screen shots.

Hepworth Arcade interviews

Today i visited The Hepworth Arcade which is located at the end of the Whitefriargate shopping area. I went into every shop to see if the owners were interested in being filmed speaking about their store and being located there. The Aim of my video is to promote The Hepworth Arcade. After collecting many contacts for every store i called around everyone. Unfortunately, the clients i needed to speak to where not available at this time. However, one client Julie, who owns Roisin Dubh, a vintage a shabby chic furniture store, has agreed on a short interview to be scheduled at 12pm on Thursday 14th March 2013. Thanks very much.

Flip book research

Within my project, i would like to film walking through the arcade and then using a light board to turn my video walk through into a flip book. I think that this will give the video and artistic feel, much like the Hepworth arcade.



Self Initiated project lesson log

Wednesday 20th February

Today, we received our individual tutorials. I was told to continue to reach milestones within my project and make sure that i cross reference my work with the learning outcomes.

In light of this tutorial, my tutor thinks that my project is ready to make progress. I am also happy with the level of my research. Therefore, on the 21st February, i am going to go to the Hepworth arcade and inquire about interviews.

Smart targets

Specific –

My specific target would be to ensure that people know about the Victoria Arcade and to publicise the arcade as a whole. In the hope that Whitefriargate will seem appealing to the public.

Measurable –

To measure the time management i have created a gantt chart that i will follow to ensure that my project will be delivered on time.

Achievable –

My primary goal to achieve is a video that emphasises what the Victoria has to offer. In addition, i need to achieve interviews from the consumers of the shops within the Victoria arcade and the shop owners. I find this goal entirely achievable as i have worked with the shop owners before and carried out many interviews around that area within previous projects.

Realistic –

Realistically the video will not be a problem to create, although still challenging. Ideally, i would hope for my work to be published on websites such as This is Hull, Humber Mud, Youtube and Hyperfruit. However, i’m not quite show how realistically achievable this is. Time and emails will tell.

Time-limited –

The project as a whole from pre-production, post-production and production is a rounded 12 weeks. Although this is a tight time frame. I believe if i carefully plan and document my work, particularly by following and updating my gantt chart that the project is entirely possible.
