Writing up Draft Dialogue!

Yesterday I started writing up a draft version of the dialogue I’m going to use in the video. As you can see I put pen to paper, accompanied with a large coffee! I had a lot of factual evidence to include, but i don’t want the dialogue to be full of numbers and statistics. I’m writing in a slight casual manner, since the campaign is aimed at young people.

Came across this article for some factual information that I can integrate into the dialogue.

Mp3 users ‘risk hearing loss’

  • More than two-thirds of young people who regularly use MP3 players face premature hearing damage because the volume is too high
  • 72 out of 110 MP3 users tested in Brighton, Manchester and Birmingham were listening to volumes above 85 decibels.

  • “It’s easy to crank up the sound levels on your MP3 player to damagingly loud levels, especially on busy streets or public transport.”
  • “But if people can hear the music from your headphones from just a metre away, you’re putting your hearing at risk.”

I also referred to the Don’t lose The Music campaign’s, About Us page for some information as well.

  • Social noise levels in the UK have tripled since the early 1980s. This means we are exposed to more noise in our daily lives than generations before us.
  • RNID research found that huge numbers of young people are experiencing warning signs of potential hearing damage (ringing and dull hearing) yet they don’t know what they should do to protect their hearing.
