    Objective:
    Produce a clip to teach how camera movement and multi-camera set-ups impact the way the audience receives information. Include a description of the assignment and the storyboard.
     

     

    Clips will be presented in one live-action, fully credited film edited via Pinnacle.

     

    No gore, creepy stuff, crime, nor horror may be shown. This is school; know your audience.

     

    Anticipated Time: 3-4 weeks.
     

    Text Box: Tasks to Produce:

Choose Two…

A.	Go Fish: - Film at least two people playing a card game. Ensure that the audience sees the cards of all players.
B.	Ding Dong: - Film multiple points of view of at least one person entering a room and sitting in a seat. (An opposite scenario is acceptable.)
C.	Going Up: Film multiple points of view of at least two people crossing paths as they go from one floor to another via the stairs. (No collision is permitted! Safety first!)
D.	Catch that Ball: Film at least one person looking for a ball, or other object, that has rolled away from a setting. (Remember, safety rules are enforced. There is to be no throwing or other potentially dangerous behavior.) 
E.	Chat It Up: Film at least two people in a walk-and-talk with the amount of people changing. Since we don’t record dialogue, the characters must show engagement by looking at an object or appearing to exchange information. (From one to three people, or three to one, etc.)

With mutual agreement from the teacher, students may propose a task to produce.


     

     

    Tips for Completing the Project:

     

    1.     Watch for consistency in clothing, hair-dos, and where characters and objects are placed.

    2.    Be careful about filming in a classroom. It might not be available every day.

    3.    Spending a lot of time planning will save your group from having to reshoot.

    4.    Stay consistent and keep the storyline simple.

    5.    We aren’t writing dialogue; that would triple the amount of work! Let the eyes and music be the dialogue.

    6.    Keep in mind the importance of the credits.

    7.    Have fun, share the work, and be a good partner. 

    8.    Be sure to teach about camera movement and multi-camera set-ups.
