For this piece, my research will be primarily literature based. I will be looking at many academic journals and online articles and books, such as History of Visual Effects. I will be using these to bridge the gap between people who feel that Visual Effects is being overused and those who feel it is not.
I will be looking at journals and articles to see if they would be beneficial to my research. If they are, then I will be able to assay their pieces and using it in my piece.
I will be using qualitative data, such as online questioners, which will give me a good sense of how the general public feels and then be able to use the results throughout my piece. These questioners will be carried out through the use of social media.
I also will be trying to get in contact with Visual Effects artists in the industry. Aron Merritt (Game of Thrones VFX Data-Wrangler) and Arron Roebuck (Game of Thrones VFX Data-Wrangler) would be fantastic people to get opinions off. As well as both Aron and Arron, I will be trying to get in contact with Visual Effects artists in Northern Ireland. I intend on asking them all the same questions, as I would then be able to compare and contrast each of their answers against one another.
