The essay

Research is crucial for any production or product that is being created, getting information on a certain topic and building on the information with your own. Research lets a content producer get information on things they previously didn’t know for example when filming about animals in a factual piece its important that you toughly do your research to know everything about the animal. For me research means a solid foundation you can base the rest of your work off of  Research can be classified in different ways such as…

  • Primary- this  original research is carried out by yourself typically trough questionnaires, focus groups and interviews to obtain new information specific to your needs. Primary research gives the producer control over the research they produce although it won’t be fully controlled it will give them a chance to choose what questions and people to ask.
  • Secondary- this research is research that was carried by other people. there are many  different ways you can obtain this information such as books, forums, spoken word, reports and previous  research done. The benefits to this research is that it saves time and money in research costs but the information could be unreliable and that could jeopardise content you produce.
  • Quantitate- research based on measurable facts and information that can be counted and produced in graphs. This information is all data and it shows us what research is as a collective problems with this include, the information is very generalised and doesn’t go into special situations that could happen.
  • Qualtive- research that is based opinions attitudes. This gives researchers more of a specific answer, for example instead of just asking what someone liked about something they can explain why they liked it. Problems include this takes a lot of time and money because methods include interviews and focus groups and that could take a while to set up.
