Key Research Interests

Daryl's current research interest is within creative practice research methodologies within film and tv theory. Currently, Daryl is evaluating how practitioner-researchers actively create and reflect on filmmaking within videographic criticism as a mode of argument and analysis. In doing so, it elaborates on how we can use videographic criticism to expand our approach to film theory through creative cognition. This research, therefore, seeks to evaluate and identify auteurism through the cinematographic rather than directorial.

Daryl is also interested in Broadcasting operations research, Media as a didactic mode of knowledge transfer, from taditional broadcasting methods to online streaming sites suh as Netflix, Amazon pron to Youtube and Vimeo.
