2016 Campaign Election Pop Culture Analyzation

For my midterm video, I decided to focus on a handful of ideas - the campaign coverage (as a whole) between Clinton and Trump, how the media approaches both of these candidates, how these candidates have been received from audiences of different ages, the societal issues that Trump has brought to surface through his disgusting character and how he reflects part of America's indecency.

I scoured the internet, for hours, looking for footage that related to one another and tied them all together to create a short documentary. I've noticed how big of a part pop culture has played in this campaign and continued the pop culture lens theme from my last few projects by using more pop culture-based sources (like Ellen and SNL).

In editing this video, I started off comical and playful with what has been going on. Further into the video, the audience would then find the progression of ludicracy within the Trump campaign and how the inappropriate behavior can also be observed in the American culture. It then ends with the note of how through this election, the indecency is losing is shock value and taking away from the truth; taking away from the pure havoc that is being exemplified.
