sloth18 Photo Message

impending doom

1) What is the title or tag line of your photo?

“impending doom”

2) What action links will you use? What concrete, specific, measurable actions do you want people to take after seeing your message? For example, visiting a website, volunteering, donating money, buying a product. Did I already mention be specific?

I initially wanted to use this image to promote the local food movement.  However i think that some may find it violent or off putting so I have moved away from that concept.  I think that this image could be utilized by something like the occupy movement.  It is a powerful image and if it were used in the context of the protest it could help to draw people in.

3) What is your specific, focused message? (One or two sentences.) Do not post this to flickr. This will strongly inform how your photo message is graded however. How well does your image live up to its intended message and effect?

Do not let this happen to you.  You are human and deserve to live as such.

4) What kinds of people or audiences do you intend to reach? Who are some of the people that your message won’t appeal to? Again, do not post this to flickr. This will also inform how your photo message is graded.

I intend to reach anyone who feels disenfranchised with the american system as it is today.  There has been a huge groundswell of support for the occupy movement so I plan to tap in to this already existing audience.  It will not appeal to those who oppose the movement obviously but I am not trying to reach those people.
