You are going to be producing a short 60-second commercial. You will need to form groups of 3-4 and give me a list of names of your members. The commercial will target sport enthusiast and will be playing during the NBA Basketball playoffs. Topics may include but are not limited to sports drinks, energy foods, muscle building products, and athletic equipment.These may be existing products or ones you create (invent)… and yes, they may be humorous as appropriate for school. Don't like these choices... see me and pitch me your ideas.
I need story outlines and scripts prior to filming.
News Story Project # 1: Students will research a school related topic of interest. Based on their research, students will create a video news story for presentation. They will present the completed project in class.
Step 1) Brainstorm with your group members topics to consider.
Step 2)Preproduction: You will be writing (typing out) all of your shots in the order you plan to shoot them. It is alright if you make minor adjustments between your written outline and your final project. The purpose is to think through your storyline
PSA - this will be your introduction to creating a Public Service Announcement. For this first one we will keep it short and on target. 15 - 30 seconds. I will get more detailed with you in class. Check out Above the Influence for ideas.
You will use iMovie as your editing tool. You must incorporate live video, still photos optional, and audio (active or voice over). You may want to include background audio files from one of the iLife programs. I want to see your team develop and draw on individual's creativity, editing skills, and the ability to work under the pressure of a short deadline while still incorporating a team approach. Everybody pulls his or her own weight on this project.
