INTERACTIVE AWARDS: WHY WE NEED TO INNOVATE TO KEEP US WATCHING

“We need more to do than to watch.”


statues and speeches

We have for years tuned in to watch the annual award ceremonies that take place on television. But with so much to be involved in this new digital age, why watch any of these ceremonies. There is just too much to occupy time besides hearing, “The winner is…” and “I want to thank…” These awards shows have become boring over the years.

So what should be done so that they don’t die out. Because when you look at a show like the Oscars, you’re talking monumental, but year by year, no one seems to care.

keeping up with the times

Like I said prior, with so much in a digital age, how do award shows compete. Well, they are going to have to now adjust to the times. They need to start incorporating an element of mediated ion the shows. Just a two hour program award people give speeches and hand each other awards is not good enough.

There need to be an experience where people at home can be actively involved, and not just spectating. And with the introduction of AR and VR headsets, there is so much room to be apart of the Golden Globes, Oscar, Grammy, etc. experience. Also, why not incorporate questionnaires from the audience to their favorite actors/actress for content.

a generation fighting change

A generation that watches these are used to the same ecstatic, but the times are changing. And the past generations are apprehensive to the change, but things must. They are dying and there is no replacement to keep the show going. So, in order to keep the machine moving forward, you have to cater to the demographic that is younger.

And what better way to engage your new generation of potential viewers than to attract them with what has their focus already.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
