This panel features various women in different parts of media who are successful at reaching a large digital audience and establishing personal brand. I’m interested in this panel because it can give insight on how to both gain a digital audience and how to turn that audience into a business. One of my idols, Issa Rae, is in this panel and she literally started out making her web series, The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl, with a low quality camera and a good idea to working with Pharrell Williams and Shonda Rhimes on various projects and owning her own production company. The best way to cover this story would be through an article and interviewing the panelists.
Bill Cosby is a legend who book down many barriers in the realm of television for African Americans. While this is a comedy show, I bet Cosby may offer tidbits of wisdom on how he managed to do all the groundbreaking things in his life. The best way to cover this would be through a review and tweets.
It’s not often that you see a movie about one of the greatest musicals of all time played by one of the greatest musicals of all time directed by a Academy nominated writer. I’m just interested in the subject manner of the film and the chaos involved in attending a world premiere of a film. The best way to cover this would be through a review and tweets.
I am interested in this event because I love science and Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of my favorite astrophysicists of all time. Neil deGrasse Tyson became known to the mainstream world for being the guy who declared Pluto not being a planet and for becoming a very popular meme when memes were huge. The event would be best covered through twitter.
Since alot of my group is interested in hip hop, this concert would be a time to reflect where hip hop is going and if the Childish Gambino’s brand of hipster hip hop is where everything may be headed. Is rap going to go towards a more traditions Kendrick Lamar route, or is the Childish Gambino a more accurate determination on what rap will be in a decade? This concert would best be covered through a review and tweets.
