October 19-30

Continue Veteran’s Day and Halloween/Fall Videos

October 5-October 16

You will be assigned a project. Most are tied into the Veterans Day video we are making. I will also be assigning a couple various projects in addition to the Veterans Day video.

We have six total projects. You can be in groups of 3-4 people as long as we have a total of six groups.

The projects are:

Choir Song
Band-National Anthem
Legion- March of flags, taps, gun salute
Interview with Dan Wilczak
Fall sports/Activities Highlight Film
Dog video for the Columbiana County Humane Society

Your first job with this assignment is to contact the lead person for the project and discuss options with him/her. Second will be to make a storyboard based on that conversation. You will need to schedule a time to film and then edit your own video to be put together with a bigger video to be done at the beginning of November.

September 14th-October 2nd

3 Groups-will rotate each week

Group 1- Classroom group

  • Richard Jewell Story

Group 2- Filming Group

Mock Newscast Project

You will be creating a mock newscast. Your goal is to film on scene events for your broadcast in this group. You will create the scenes and interviews etc. Your broadcast must include the following:

Breaking News

Again all of this is made up. Be creative with how you want to tell the story. You should have a different reporter for each segment. Also, you can use other people to interview etc. If you are filming by yourself at home create new characters for each segment.

Group 3- Editing Group

As an editor you have two jobs to do. One will be to edit your on scene footage. The other will be to film your desk scenes.

Your at desk scenes should set up the news cast. Additionally you will need to use the green screen for you at Desk scenes. I am including two links for how to green screen whether you are using Premier Pro or iMovie.

You will also need to include an intro and outro for your broadcast with graphics and music.
