Students are exposed to basics in video project composition. Activities include learning how to build visually effective shots, how to use music to enhance the feel of the presentation, and how to create a movie project that is designed to keep a student’s attention in the context of teaching standards-based material.

We will watch the rough cuts in class, give editing suggestions, add audio (foley, voiceover, soundtrack), and and work on the 29 second final cut in class. The rough cut is due week 6. A rough cut does not have to be perfect. However, it does need to have every scene filmed and placed in order, and should be complete enough to share with others to solicit feedback. The final commercial is due week 7.
