Week 6 – Comm 11007 – Practical: Photocaptioning Inquiry: Cirque de Soleil Media Kit



This week I tried my hand at Photo Captioning.   Please check out my Storify link 🙂

Inquiry: Amaluna – Cirque de Soleil


b) The show I selected from Cirque de Soleil is “Amaluna”, which means “mother moon”.  In each of the press kits includes the following highlighted sections:

  • Show Overview
  • The Acts
  • The Main Characters
  • Costumes
  • Music
  • Set Design
  • Creator’s Biographies
  • Village on Wheels
  • Fast Facts
  • Cirque de Soleil at a glance
  • The upcoming shows of 2015

c. Having these categories laid out this way illustrates how easy it would be to write a story from them.  The press kit explains the acts, the characters, an overview of the story and what the title means, and it would just be a matter of cross referencing all the pieces of information to get an idea of what the show would be like.  Additionally supplying the dimensions of the set design and what instruments that will be used, the reader can start to get a very good idea of what the show would be like.

  1. Hi Morgana – these are OK captions generally. A photo essay focuses on one event, so that the photos tell the story of that event. So if you have a series of photos of the race day, for example, you can caption the photos so we get a sense of the race day without you having to write up a story. I hope that makes sense. 🙂


    1. Hi Kate – thankyou for reviewing my photo captioning post. That is a very good tip about using a series of photos to do the story telling. I will consider this is the final touch ups for assessment 3. Thankyou.


  2. Hi Morgana,
    My only recommendation would be to maybe go into a bit more depth on how you would use these topics in a story. I enjoyed your photo captioning though! Great pictures!
