The best example I can give of long-form journalism is in the form of my Dissertation that I wrote in my third and final year of University. My course? 3D Animation and Game design. My chosen subject to explore? A contemporary analysis of Machinima: now and then. In my investigative piece on Machinima as an art form, I explore the history of the medium, the changes and problems which the form encountered, as well as the future and legacy of the craft to name but a few headings that scratch the surface of my paper.
The Cinemasochist is a blog run by myself, Mitchell Cork, a London based 3D Animation and Game Design graduate. This blog will focus on the demonstration of my journalistic work; Reviews, Opinion Pieces, Top 10 Lists, Spotlights and more are examples of the kind of content you can find here. The areas which my work will cover will focus primarily on the Games and Film industry, but may at times cover other similar areas of importance. I intend to cultivate this blog by supporting it via a mix of written and video content, so that in time it is a prime showcase of my abilities as a professional in the journalistic field.
That’s it for now, and I hope this brief paragraph accurately surmises the purpose and intention for the Cinemasochist blog.
