The following scenes should last 10mins each.

1st Scene
The audience walks into a scene at the market, with people talking really loudly, some will be talking about what they are selling, and what they want, pricing…etc.
That will continue for about 5 minutes and then the scene will freeze and the narrator would come on and talk about when this was taken place and what is happening. Afterwards the lights would die out and the audience would be led to the next scene.

2nd Scene
A few of the actors would be in the ‘shelter’ as soon as they go in there would be loud noises of the air raids and the people in the shelter would usher the audience in and tell them to be quiet. And they would all sit in the darkness with sounds of bombs going off etc. After the sounds stop their will be a narration about when this happened & what it was like. After the narration the audience will go into the next installation.

3rd Scene
The audience would be given ration books as soon as they walk into that section. They will be asked what they want by the people at the shop. And they will be told that there is none or if there’s just a limited amount of food, their ration tokens will be stamped after they collect the food. After this scene the audience will be guided to the next section.

4th Scene
Will be a more visual installation as there is faded music in the background while the audience listen to interviews from people who live locally nowadays. They will also see images of Bermondsey such as the river Thames, the Cold Stores that aren’t used & luxury apartments.

Handouts may be given out at the end of the installation so that the audience was clear about what they saw and what it was about.

What is Marketing-04.11/08

Marketing Trip

I attented a marketing presentation in Southwark town hall where they told us what marketing was and what we thought it was. I felt that the presentation was boring because there was too much writing on the powerpoint, their presentation skills were bad because they didn't involve the audience in a fun way. They talked for too long about marketing, and it felt like they were reading a book. They showed us leaflets for a activity created by differnt organisations, and asked us which ones were suitable for the target audience, and which ones appealed to us more. They got us to create a campaign that would get young people to get involved to be a junior street leader. Overall I felt that the begining part of it was not useful at all, but the campaign we had to create was fun. Especially when we got given free chocolate bars =D

Red Hat= Feelings

Yellow Hat= Positives

Green Hat= Creative Ideas
Finding new ideas

  • Ideas: Theatre, Library, Classrooms
  • Black Hat- Not a good idea to use the library becuase not enough space, and people would be cramped, not a good idea because people might eat the food and not pay attention to the installation.
  • Red Hat- Felt it was a good idea to use the theatre, as it has a large space, and can do more things in it, felt not a good idea people would only be intersted in the food.
  • Yellow Hat- To use the theatre because of the overhead projecto, giving out free food to attract people.
  • Green Hat- Thought that using the library or a museum would be an idea.
  • Blue Hat- The theatre is a good idea, but the free food isn't.

Time of Installation

  • Ideas: Lunchtime, After college, During Lessons.
  • White Hat- Everybody has different times when it comes to lunch time.
  • Black Hat- People wouldn't give up their lunchtime to watch an installation.
  • Red Hat- Lunchtime is a good idea because in everybodys spare time.
  • Yellow Hat- it would work at lunch as that is the time when everybody is around.
  • Green Hat- After college as all the classes would be free.
  • Blue Hat- During lunchtime is the best time.

The rooms

  • White Hat- Have to think if some classrooms were going to be in use, and which ones we could use, maybe transfering from one room to another.
  • Black Hat- Switching rooms during the installation is not a good idea because people would get tired of moving, outside space wasn't a good idea because of technical difficulties and it being cold.
  • Red Hat- It could work if everything gets set up.
  • Yellow Hat- It would make make things different and interesting, to use differnet kind of installations for each group.
  • Green Hat- Instead of using the rooms, could use the outside space.
  • Blue Hat- The moving from one room to another is a good idea.
