Theme: Introduce yourself
The goal of this assignment is to let you explore with creating a digital video project. What you choose to create is up to you just stick to the theme and follow the specific following guidelines:
  1. Your video can be NO MORE THAN 4 MINUTES
  2. You have 30 minutes to plan and capture
  3. You have 60 minutes to:
  • edit,
  • sequence
  • add an audio track
  • add a title
If you have time you are welcome to explore integrating other things such as transitions.
Your group will present the video to the rest of the class.

Digital video and still cameras will be available in class but are also are available to sign out at the COE at any time. In addition the computer lab has a variety of different software applications that might also be of help. If you are a Mac user, iMovie or Garage Band is a great tool for bringing together various elements. PC users can use Windows Movie Maker.
