The I HATE WRITING project was inspired by a blog (http://ihatewriting.net/) that discusses different issues connected with negative attitudes towards writing. The author of this short decided to feature the I HATE WRITING phenomenon because those who struggle with writing due to their extreme dislike are often omitted in academic multimedia projects. In the past, scholars tended to deliberate on writing as a passion, a cognitive skill coming from within, or as a positive aspect of life in academia. Few have discussed the other side of the problem. Therefore, I HATE WRITING incorporates people from different environments English teachers, students, attorneys, ESL speakers, and professors studying and interacting with those the filmmaker terms I-HATE-WRITERS, to convey the real message, revealing not only the problem but also possible solutions proposed by its participants. The remix of iconic music, strong images from a British CCTV camera (the office clerk losing his mind at the beginning of the movie) and convincing academic arguments, was used to find the lingua franca of todays multimodal generation. Final Cut Express, iMovie, Picasa, Xtranormal Text to Movie, and Audacity combine video and animation with slides, borrowed (with permission) from the South Central Writing Center Conference presentation of T.R. Johnson, Associate Professor of English at Tulane University; additional footage was obtained at the 2009 San Francisco CCCC.
