Transcript of Big Cats

Rhetorical Analysis Strategies Success? Ethos Pathos Logos Who? What? Additionally... Audience! For my article, I believe my audience is any adult or young adult that may be interested in big cats or zoology. The presentation is casual, yet informative, which greatly extends the viewership. It's not just for scientists! It's for anyone interested in animals. The video itself is not just a person talking, it is a married couple with a lot of experience under their belts. They tell entertaining stories, provide meaningful statistics, and have breathtaking photographs and heartbreaking video. They try their best to connect with their audience through visuals and humor. ted.com, the source of the video, is a website that touts "ideas worth spreading" and "riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world". They want people to come and find what possibly interests them, and expand their view of the world. They have Talks, which are videos you can watch, articles, and discussion boards. A wide variety of mediums to appeal to everyone! They not only cover science, but also technology, entertainment, business and more! Presenting their audience with facts, such as how the death of a single lion due to poaching can result in the death of 20-30 lions due to pride hierarchy. They present a story of a pride of lions they discovered were adapted to hunt in water. Through a collection of videos and photographs, they show how animals can have personality, that they are not just instinctual creatures. They can feel conflict. Beverly and Dereck Joubert have worked as conservationists and documentary filmmakers for over 25 years. Their work has been published in magazines, books, and scientific journals. Their documentaries have earned them five Emmys.
Although they speak out against poaching, the couple shows the brutal side of wild cats, rather than trying to convince their audience that they are like house pets. Through their talk, they tell personal stories. A tale of a leopard that kills a mother baboon, but then cares for the child.
The Joubert's try to connect with their audience on a more human level, as well, speaking about how they drowned their jeep, as well as nearly two million dollars worth of camera equipment.
They attempt (and succeed) to shock with footage of a number of lionesses hunting an elephant, and talk about how "death begins in the eyes".
Accompanying their talk are a number of amusing and breathtaking photographs to keep their audience engaged. I found the Joubert's presentation to be very successful, in that they covered just about everything, and did so in a way that kept their audience engaged. Of course, they seemed to hit more on pathos than logos, but as they seem to have quite a bit of ethos between them, I would consider that acceptable, especially considering their audience. You'd want to encourage people to do their own research and this talk would be a good push in the right direction. "Life lessons from big cats" by Bryony Grover http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Gc2MBpfqGc#t=1m30s Summary In their video, Beverly and Dereck Joubert talk about their recent time in Africa and a few of the big cats they encountered. This includes a leopard that they tracked from birth to the end of her life to a pride of lions adapted to hunting in water. They also discuss conservation and their own personal stories on the African plain.
