For this Digital Artefact for BCM215 I have changed the approach and area of study that I am going to look into. Originally, I was looking at the effects and future of VR Gaming within Esports and how it has progressed within the new age of Esports. I decided to change the approach of my DA when personal and family issues put me out for a week. This made collecting gameplay and the footage for VR gaming harder to explore in detail.
My new iteration of my DA is something that we explored in recent weeks on class and its participatory media. This is the exploration will look into how Machinima created the Red vs Blue series, how participatory culture has led it into a new era of media with the expansion of Mods, Video creations and level/map creation. For my new DA I will be creating levels within the game Fortnite which has its own creative level maker. I will be submitting these to Epic for display on The Block, a location in the game itself. I will also be following the Machinima style videos and creating an in-game movie style such as Red vs Blue or Ignis Solus which are both in class examples. I believe this new DA will allow for a more streamlined peer review and a information loop allowing and allow me to implement a new scope too look at gaming in with a focus on Individuality, Technological and cultural impacts of cultural participation.
