Film Annex Article #3: AAA Country
No, it’s not about road-tripping across America (though that is a good idea for a short-subject video channel–I would probably watch that). This one is about America’s economic policies and how they play out both domestically and globally. 16 or so videos, really nice graphics, and pretty thought-provoking (as much as 1-minute long videos can be). These ones also come with a set of questions to think about after you watch the video, so a little but more user-involvement than past channels.
AAA Country: Economy-Sized Questions, Super Short Format (Full article, as well as links to videos and more information, is available on my Film Annex page.)
Sidenote; I don’t know how I drew the political channel beat for Film Annex. I’m much more of a film and entertainment buff than a political commentator (which is why this website is dedicated to television/movies/games inside of current events). So, while these articles are solidly outside of my comfort zone, it’s been a fun experiment, though gauging my success and effectiveness is…well, basically impossible, since I have nothing in my past to really base it on.
Oh well. One more article and my contract is up (barring a renewal, which is really up to them). Next one is either going to be about Film Annex’s coverage of Afghanistan, or about Film Annex founder Francesco Rulli and the videos on his blog. Should be fun either way 🙂
