Internet, television, radio and print each have their own strengths and weaknesses… … and their own unique way of communicating reality. Those differences affect how stories are told… … and the creative choices media creators make. Movies deliver the big experience. Newspapers are good for facts and figures. Television shows engage us minute-by-minute. Books and novels allow our imaginations to wander. And video games put us in charge of the action. The Internet is immediate and highly interactive. Social media allows people to instantly share thoughts with others across the room or around the world. Understanding how each medium is artistically different will help you when you create media constructions of your own. Have fun out there and hey, be Media Smart!
