<p>  </p> <p> <iframe frameborder="no" height="166" src=";show_artwork=true&amp;maxwidth=900" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>Who will be the next president of the United States? On November 6 2012, American voters will choose between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. From September to November, the campaign will be in full swing. It's the time that we have chosen to be on the field. But not just any field.</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> American universities welcome 20 million students each year, approximately 30% of an age group. Why did we choose to focus on college students? First, because we feel that the "youth" is too broad and vague to be fully treated in our webdocumentary. Furthermore, as students, we want to go to meet our American counterparts to bring an external perspective and original approach to this campaign.</p> <p>  </p> <p> We feel that there is a strong link between the academic diversity and the context of the election campaign. At the crossroads between campus life and the race for the White House there are a  series of topical issues that will weigh tenfold during the campaign. Our project is therefore to analyze a panel of universities around the themes present in the campaign.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> Our selection method is simple: associate each theme with a campus that best embodies it. Campus Campaign is therefore conducted cross-country to the beat of the campaign and to our steps on campus.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Each week, we will publish new content on our dedicated website. We have chosen to use video as our main format because we feel that it is best suited, but we will also use text and photo as we travel through the ten campuses.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>Details of the shooting</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> ● Duration: 2 ½ months of filming and 5 500 miles from the first week of September to the second week of November.</p> <p> ● Publishing rate : weekly for the web-documentary/ daily blog / pluri-daily for social networks</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>About the Authors</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> Hugo and Marie are both students at the Sciences Po Paris School of Journalism .
