Universal Quick Ourview

Students will use a wide range of methods to learn how a large handful of global companies ultimately fell into the hands of just five or six. Using a wide range of learning techniques—from in-class lectures and discussions to individual reading, writing, screening, and research—students will dive deep into what makes up the structure of media and entertainment industry practices. Students will be expected to prepare for class by completing assigned readings and work prior to class time, during which they’ll take part in interactive activities, group research projects, and two individual tests to challenge their acquired knowledge.

Universal Quick Ourview

For our final project, we analyzed the Big Five/Six in the media industry, from their origins to what they have become today. For our midterm project and final, we analyzed Universal in a Vox-style video highlighting the film company’s journey from the very beginning.
Our team created a timeline of Universal’s journey through researching different areas and finding old newspaper articles. The main goal with this video was to demonstrate how Universal has evolved to where it is today.
The process of making this video included finding old footage of Universal and incorporating creative text and voiceover to help viewers understand the timeline in a creative, educational, and compelling way.
