What is the Icy Poll?
We arrive at a public place and ask passer-bys to vote on a topical issue. Eg: Who should be PM?
Yep, we know that no-one really cares about politics. So voting is motivated with a free icy pole. That’s why we call it an - Icy Poll.
At each poll we film a short videos of people who had something to say on the issue. These are similar to the Vox Pop interviews you might see on the news (seen here). The whole Icy Poll is cut up into a neat little video.
Who are you?
I’m just a Monash journalism graduate building a portfolio. I ask a few friends to help me out each time. Nope, I’m not a socialist alternative, young liberal or brooding communist. I have no political or commercial affiliations. I created the project and fund each poll. Luckily Zooper Doopers are cheap!
Where does the results go?
All the vote ballots are anonymous and I publish the results in the video.The video is posted on Vimeo and then linked to my this site and Twitter.
When is the next one?
