'Portfolio karma'

I have sent round emails with directions - that is my PL role - as a tutor I wish you well.

Both Adesola and I have been through these types of submissions...

When I taught printmaking I used to call it 'press karma' because if you were too nervous abut putting the paper onto the plate to print - it would shift and make a mark.

So this would be 'portfolio karma'.

Calm - not at the very last minute - and we are there to help.

updated George Siemens

We have that early info about Siemens - but here is in person  YouTube

a longer interview with him

Using research from hyperlinks - ex. film and gender

I was looking at this article today on the Guardian website

which led to this report form the UK Directors about gender and film directors
Often you can ink to goo d sources very quickly  this days - the power of the hyperlink!

and then I saw this earlier report.

Ilona - will mention when we speak.

What is quite irritating with doing inquiries is that these things do have the habit of popping up at the last minutes as you are finalising drafts!!

Hope that helps - you might have a pop up source - so worth a google... or look at places you know have good information.

A few more writing links

Hi everyone - a few more sources - we also have link on your MyLearning site for writing help - ours is a reportage style writing in the first person...

writing is a creative process - use drafts version 1 , version 2, version 3 to edit and shape the writing - especially after feedback. Remember you are in the driving seat - the author - and communication can be in a written form but don't forget images, visual diagrams, and audio-visual. The use of the later can increase you file size - but submissions can be up to 500mb in the final portfolio. Beyond that consider WeTransfer for artefacts over 500mb
