The aim of this block is to plan and carry out a class Skype interview with the leading producer in the American reality TV industry!

After studying The King of Kong and recognising the clever tricks they use, we'll apply this knowledge to critiquing reality TV. Both films and reality tv use similar techniques to create a narrative. We will study how these narratives are built and how they manipulate the audience to feel a specific way.

Throughout this class we will also explore several writing exercises that will support you in developing a writing folio.
