1 Propaganda Project Brave New World

2 Objective Students will create a 60 second commercial advertisement using the proper formatting to show their understanding of propaganda and its use in the World State of the novel Brave New World.

3 Essential Questions How does a society, state, or social group use propaganda to maintain social order? How do the elements of argument (ethos, pathos, logos) apply to advertisements? How do the audience and message of an advertisement affect the way it is delivered?

4 Introduction Congratulations on your job offer and welcome to Mustapha Mond's Department of Propaganda!  As a new employee, it is imperative that you understand clearly and completely your role in our brave new world of stability, harmony, and never-surpassed human happiness…

5 Departments Shop 'til You Drop Sub-department: You are responsible for promoting the idea that an increase in production and consumption lead to happiness and virtue.  Newer is better!  More is best!  Old is horrid! “Ending is better than mending” Better Living Through Test Tubes Sub-department: Everyone belongs to everyone else!  And all have a role and a function in society.  Everyone has to do their part!  To understand and act on this is to be happy and to live healthily.  One cannot be reminded of this long enough - or forget the ugliness, squalor, and irrationality of the old family-model based on [sic] "parents"! Never a Dull Moment Sub-department: Whether it be the Obstacle Golf, Orgy Porgy, or the Feelies, a normal person just wants to have non-stop 24-7 fun!  Sensory stimulation is the highest pursuit of the best form of happiness.  Don't be the last to indulge in the latest greatest amusement!  And let's all do it TOGETHER! Happiness is a Pill Sub-department: Feeling a bit under the weather?  Gloomy thoughts clouding your day?  Take a Soma vacation! Pop a pill(s) and kiss those rain clouds good-bye.  Relief is just a dose away! What are you waiting for?  TAKE IT NOW! You will be assigned to one of four Department of Propaganda sub-departments responsible for reinforcing correct thought and correspondingly correct behavior:

6 Keys to Effective Commercials
Message Make sure your message is clear! What are you selling? How can you sell it? What types of persuasion can you use? Slogans? Jingles? Audience Know your target audience. What makes them tick? What “buttons” can you push? Call to Action What is it you are trying to get your audience to do? Don’t forget to inform them how to do it!

8 Formatting The most common format for a television commercial advertisement is the 2-column script format.

11 Formatting The standard font for the film industry is “courier new”, but you may use any legible font for this assignment VIDEO AUDIO

12 Formatting In the Video column, everything is in ALL CAPS. Your video descriptions should be in present tense, as if it is happening right now as we read it. You may choose to use film terminology to explain what we are seeing at that point in the commercial VIDEO AUDIO OPEN ON LITTLE GIRL SITTING ON FRONT PORCH AT WICKER TABLE. BEGIN SLOW MOVE IN ON HER AS SHE SINGS.

13 Formatting In the audio column, describe everything that is happening that the audience hears - including music, voice overs, and sound effects (SFX). Names of people or VO (voice over) are in caps, everything else is lowercase. VIDEO AUDIO OPEN ON LITTLE GIRL SITTING ON FRONT PORCH AT WICKER TABLE. BEGIN SLOW MOVE IN ON HER AS SHE SINGS.
