Internal/External

Just a wee note to help you and that came as a result of a question…

In essence:
Internal factors relate to choices the producer makes for their own reasons or that they have control over. (e.g.: Band image/producer’s target audience/casting/budget/etc)
External factors relate to things outwith the control of the producer but which the producer has to bear in mind such as Codes of Practice (from CAP), working conditions must comply with relevant legislation (e.g.: Health and Safety), regulatory bodies (e.g.: BBFC/ASA/the Law!),  and so on…
In general terms, when you made the poster, you had internal factors to consider such as actors (who you have control over), budget, software, lighting, equipment, etc… but while making it, you have also had to be aware of (and possibly made changes to comply with) external factors such as making sure your poster is legal, decent, honest and truthful… etc.
So in short… an internal factor is one that a producer controls, and external factor is one that someone else controls… yes, they sometimes cross over, but keep it simple… stick with the obvious!

Final example from PQD:

Internal: The producers choose the cast (Terence Stamp)
External: The BBFC issue the classification certificate (15)
And a cross over: The producers approve the script (and allow bad words) which is an internal factor but as a result of their decisions, the BBFC give it a 15 certificate which is an external factor.

The Doctor Will Be In At 10(ish)

I’ll be checking blog/emails/edmodo/etc from just after 10 this morning. I’ll be online for most of the day until about 10 tonight if you have questions/etc…

I’ll be returning things as soon as they’re processed, and will probably use edmodo for secure postings.

If you don’t remember the email to use, LEAVE A COMMENT HERE and I’ll get back to you asap!

Deadline

Two things…

If you haven’t already heard, your Assignment needs to be good to go next Thursday, 27th. That gives us 8 days to whip it into shape… doddle!

Second, if you want to see me today, don’t head in before 1pm. I haven’t seen the timetable for the INSET day yet, but I’ll almost certainly be in meetings in the morning. 

🙂

Welcome to Disasterville

TODAY IS POSTPONED! Due to events entirely outwith my control, I cannot get in to the school today. I will be in tomorrow, and I will be online later today (from 12)… in the meantime, I am unavoidably detained. I cannot overemphasise just how much this is stressing me out, so I can’t even begin to appreciate how it’s affecting you.

I’ll try to sort something out for Friday and/or Monday as well, though we may need to meet outwith the school (any suggestions?) I’m genuinely gutted.

I’ll post the Part 2 Guidance when I get back online in an hour or two, in the meantime, I’m really really sorry.

Finally, can you let anyone else who’s not on the blog know!
