Screen shot of black actors that have been nominated for an Oscar
and those who have won over the years.
Since 1958 to 2013 only 4 black actors have won an Oscar.
More black actors have won Oscars for a supporting role than a lead
role.
I asked some student about their opinion on the Oscars through a
survey on SurveyMonkey.com
These are the results.

Potential areas of interest: Andrea is a Film Studies teacher, so she


knows everything there is to know about film. This is why I chose
her to my interviewee as she will know what shes talking about and
I will also be interested in what Andrea has to say.

Research of Guest
Key Facts:
- Estate photography is the act of talking and developing
photographs of houses for estate agent companies; this
usually includes interior and exterior photography of every
type of building in the industry.
- Estate agent photography is a professional method of
taking the photographs of houses; these photographs will
be used by companies on websites and flyers or for
advertising purposes.
- The property industry uses this service to provide them
with a professional service. Often the property companies
will produce photographs of every room in the house
including the exterior shots; they will then be required to
edit and enhance each photograph to create the desired
perspectives of the property by the company or property
owner.
- In the industry, higher demand for estate requires a higher
demand for photography. Because of this, property
companies have been using photography companies and
film photography companies to produce the images of their
properties.
Potential areas of interest:
The areas of interest are the opportunities that developing
methods are providing for film/photography persons to
consider taking on the job as a career. This is because the
market is expanding and varied techniques for creating the
companies desired images are developing. This means that
the production will be significant and vary varied for
different peoples intentions.
Areas of concern:

Competition is a key concern for this business, to remain in


business companies are constantly competing with each
other; this might place pressure on workers. Another key
point is editing skills, editing is another important part of
the process of this job, and professional standards are
expected from property companies and property owners.
