During the workshop on thursday, we began to look into possible VT’s we could use in our live show. As our group has decided to go with a childrens show focusing on risky decisions that could danger a childs life and looking into healthy and safety.
One thing we need to be careful with is copyright, especially with it being a childrens show therefore I thought that by using exisiting government campaigns would be an idea because they are created for the public therefore they would be open to public useage.
We looked at the “THINK” campaign aimed at keeping children safe out on the roads.
I think these set of adverts are very effective in getting the message across to children in a realistic way yet without too much of the horrible side to it. After doing some research into this campaign I found out that it is aimed at children between 6- 11 year old.
Research found that children in this age range need to understand the reasons for always using good road safety behaviour. The campaign therefore uses animated characters that are vulnerable to the real consequences of not following good road use. The key message is ‘you need to use good road safety behaviour or you could come to real harm’. The campaign also demonstrates the correct road safety behaviours. – Taken from http://talesoftheroad.direct.gov.uk/grownups.php
After Thursdays Editioral workshop we have now got a final concept for our childrens safety show, It will be based on road safety. Now we have etablished this it will be a lot easier to finalise VT’s we could use. We havent decided which VT’s we will be using …. TO BE CONTINUED.
