let’s look at our last assignment together and then get going! Below are links to a previous student re-creation and the original.
it is the last assignment for this segment of the course. It will be done in pairs and is due on Monday.
please take a look at the Movie Poster assignment. This is to be done in pairs.
here’s 1 more local film example:
it is time to form a group and begin brainstorming for your own short film! I do not want to set too many parameters for this project, but I would advise that you do NOT go over 5 minutes; the shorter the better for your film. Please remember: you will be making this film, so don’t write a script that you cannot make a reality! You will be given a rubric on Monday.
What makes a good short film? What types of stories and characters can be captured in this short format?
In pairs, please view at least 5 Short Films and take notes using the format below. Find quality short films… like Oscar Nominated Shorts, and other award winning short films. View others you find on the web. Be selective. Join Vimeo to help you start a list of your favorites. If possible, find works that relate somehow to your own creative work, as inspiration for a technique or look you hope to achieve. Try to use films that are longer than one minute and shorter than 10 minutes (though the definition of a short film may vary).
Make notes on your favourite shorts, record your reflection once you have viewed 5 shorts. Your submission must note the below info for each film (some of this info can be found online and pasted into your reflection):

thank you so much for your patience in the heat yesterday and for being so understanding with all the technical difficulties! Hopefully today will run more smoothly. We will move on to the second Audacity assignment and then consider our final, unit ending, project. Also, attached is a short study guide with some audio/audacity terms; if you are finished a little early, please study for a quiz we will have tomorrow.
