Living/Working Digitally Project – Sources

This semester, I’m taking Digital Media II, and the project we’re working on now deals with how the digital world we live in has made things possible that just couldn’t happen a few years ago without the technology we have now.  An example of this would be the woman who fell into a big fountain in the middle of a mall because she was texting on her cellphone. You can check the video out here:

We were to choose a topic that interested us enough to write a short research paper on and create a documentary about it.  I chose to work with the topic Catfish.  Long story short, Catfish is a documentary about a man, Nev, who starts an online relationship with a woman through Facebook.  Throughout the relationship, there were always excuses as to why they couldn’t video chat or why they couldn’t meet up in person.  By the end of the film, he finds out that the person he had been dating wasn’t who she claimed to be.  This eventually inspired Catfish: The TV Show, sharing similar stories like Nev’s.

In order to get started on my research, I have to gather sources.  These sources can be anything that will help me gather information for my topic and create my documentary (videos, articles, people, etc.).
