Photo Documentary Proposal - Radio and V/O

Lance McCormick
Photo Documentary Project Proposal

The concept of my proposal will consist of the daily work that a radio voice over engineer performs. It will focus on a specific individual and will document his job activities while informing the viewer of how things work and why they are important to the radio industry. I will also include the significance of radio and the impact it has had on culture worldwide. The documentary will take place at the Clear Channel Radio headquarters within the private studios available to the workers.

I plan to include audio clips of voice over work and possibly interviews with veterans of the industry working at clear channel radio. The person featured in my presentation will be performing the voice over throughout my project. You will hear his voice as my photo slideshow is being presented, this will give an example of his style of work and possibly voices of other professionals as well.

Annie Leibovitz part 2

Annie has had an amazing life. Full of happiness, adventure, and sorrow. She has lost so many close to her and had seen what true horrors in world exist. I found it interesting how so caught up in popular culture she was. It ran her life, actually, it washer life. When she saw what devastation war can do to people she found her self not so interested in the famous culture.

She began to reflect on her own life and longed for the family she remembers growing up with. She decided she wanted to have kids and this was a growing experience for her and it reflected in her photography.

I liked how she said at the end, "this isn't two lives, this is just one." referring to her personal and professional photography life. And that is how it should be I believe.

Annie Leibovitz

What can you say about Annie Leibovitz? She has had the career that photographers dream of. To have experienced so much and to be apart of the iconic history that defines us. Photographer to the legends of american culture itself. Her photos are simply amazing as much as they are iconic. Something about her style draws my attention. The way she quietly becomes apart of her subject's daily environment, unnoticed and forgotten. This is the beauty that allows her to get intimate shots.

I recall her explaining that when she was a child she was constantly traveling, seeing the world through a pre-made frame (the car window). This made me think about other "pre-made frames" we look through each and every day. Our computer monitor, cell phone screen, house windows, television screen, sunglasses, all constructed with an unnoticeable frame to the person not paying attention. I understand now how and why Annie became who she is today. An undying love for a moment in time when everything stops so much meaning can be extracted.

I cant help to google her images, looking at the quality, clarity, and uniqueness of each one. So many famous people documented over the years. So much of American culture documented. She has a special eye for culture.
