YouTube Proposal

Write a proposal of 200-500 words that describes your YouTube video essay, which must be on a topic related to digital communication or social media that is relevant to the issues raised by the course. Explain what other videos are available on YouTube on similar subjects and list at least one possible YouTube video that you might choose to respond to in order to get your video viewed by members of the general public.

Think about if you want to use images, footage from creative commons sources, or fresh footage that you have shot yourself. Give the reader information about your argument, the central claims, and the evidence that you plan to present. As you work on the script and editing, you may find that this basic proposal needs to be revised, but it is important to start with a sense of rhetorical context, audience, and purpose.
