Some Ideas for Presenting My Research

DSC_0028At the end of this semester I must present all the research I am doing. I’ve been meditating on that since I’ve involved so much media in my project. If I start recording some video diary entries now, I could do a lengthy vlogumentary, but I’m not sure how I would query that.

DSC_0116I also thought about making a picture book. I mean, I have so many pictures I’m sure I could just sue those and some Photoshop filters in order to make it all look like sketches, or I could color-pop Belle and I out… But would I make it a non-fiction picture book? or maybe write a fictional story based on my research?

I also think it would work as a short story or a novel, but writing about my experience would require it to be a little further along. In my proposal, I stated that I wanted the piece to end with Belle’s first competition and I just don’t think I’ll be able to do that. I didn’t realize that there would be so many obstacles to learn at the beginner level.

Honestly, I’d like to either write the novel length experience about it or do the vlogumentary. I’m just not sure that the vlogumentary would fly.

What do you think I should do?
