From the Paper:"The document below is a critique of a research dissertation of match-moving's production methods. The dissertation is fair in nearly all aspects. However, there exist a number of discrepancies in the dissertation. The dissertation's abstract is an excellent summary of what the reader expects. It touches all the aspects discussed in the dissertation sequentially. The overall presentation of the dissertation is worth praising to some extent. However, it is also worth critiques. The dissertation has been arranged consistently. The chapter three of dissertation explains the preparation as well as the preproduction process. It also explains the methods that were incorporated. The chapter hence acts as a hint or introduction of the discussion found in chapter four while chapter five explains the findings which are chapter four's results. This is enough evidence that the dissertation's consistency is worth praising.
On the other hand, the dissertation has been presented with very technical terms. It, therefore, makes no significant sense to a reader who does not have any media-based knowledge. The technicality of the language cannot be termed as a problem but failure to explain the real meaning of these technical names creates the major problem. For example, 3D has just been shallowly described as three-dimensional but it is not clear the real meaning of the three dimensional from the media perspective. The dissertation's literature review outlines research and theories that have been carried out in match-moving field, camera characteristics, match-moving history, similar methods to match-moving and the future of match-moving (Hornung 2010).
"The literature review does not raise any form of a research question that the dissertation is aiming to find its solution. This clearly shows that the dissertation is not offering any solution to the problem. The author of the dissertation should have indicated how match-moving is beneficial. The author should also have indicated the objectives in the literature review. The main idea that was supposed to be incorporated was the importance of the dissertation's subject matter and how the dissertation would help in solving a certain problem. This aspect, however cannot be traced anywhere hence putting the dissertation's essence in question. The author has, however, cited the references rigorously. The sources have been well cited including the pages where information has been retrieved (Hornung 2010)."
