For my year 12 english course, the first assessment task is to create a video essay (maximum 5 minutes in length) comparing a documentary called Waste Land with a related text of your own choosing.

The question is: Analyse how composers create texts that may give insights into the anomalies, paradoxes or inconsistencies in human behaviour and motivations.

My video essay compared Waste Land with Blade Runner 2049.

Thanks if you watched. Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated because I still have 2 days to work on this before the due date.

P.s. I know my voice sucks, I have a sore throat so go easy on that :)

Looks good , great work. I can't really say much about humanistic psychology and your video essay but Blade Runner has always highlighted the racial discrimination between man and replicants. I mean the center focus of the film was always same.

As for K, IIRC he learned about his feelings towards Joey being nothing than more one sided love with pre-programmed product when was show her as an actual mass-product.

The volume on my computer isn't working for some reason. It's been kind of janky these last couple of days. I'll watch it on my phone tomorrow if it's not working by then.

Fantastic video man. Very clear and precise presentation both in terms of audio and visuals. The content you covered is rather interesting, especially the idea that K is fitting the mold that's been cast for him by pursuing a relationship with his AI companion. Also enjoyed how you covered the idea that bigotry is used in order to make one feel better about their own circumstances. If you ever go back to this topic it might be cool to try to connect that idea shown in Wastelands with the dregs treatment of K in Bladerunner 2049.
