After discussion about last weeks attempts of showcasing emoji language in different mediums such as short stories and poetry. We came to the conclusion that it did not have the same effect as using a conversational piece had. The stories and poetry became too cluttered and uneasy to read and comprehend. It also left too much subjective thinking for the audience who may not know what was going on if they hadn’t heard about it or read the artist statement.
From this analysis, we decided to stick to more conversational piece of writing. However, being unable to write our own interesting conversations without being to clique, we decided to stick with dialogue already produced from our favourite TV shows.
We looked at Friends, Seinfeld and The Office. We decided to look at The Office, following a conversation with Jo about people in the office environment using emojis within the workplace to the ends of their emails and sentences to sound more “friendly”.
This is what we came up with:
This is what we’ll record next week and see how we can change and improve it.
