Welcome to the Science and Technology assignment page!
This marking period projects are "open ended".  You should never be saying "Ok, I'm done now so I am going to ...."fill that in whith your favorite non class activity.  I can only show you some of what you need to know, so much more rests in your searching, finding and trying information about the programs.  The "A" student will be the student who seeks to learn more than the basics that I show you in class.
    On this page you will find the following:
  1. Tasks and help information links.
  2. Due dates
  3. Quizes
  4. Homework
  5. And general information

The page will be updated with each new assignment but the old ones will remain.

Assignment 3 class work "I Movie" introduction

Objectives

  1. Students will use a story board to plan a short film
  2. Student will film, edit and plan the film cooperatively
  3. Students will develop titles, transistions, and other effects including sound to create the film.
  4. Students will plan time effectively to finish on time

During this assignment you will work in groups. Your group will create a story board of at least 8 frames describing in a simple picture what you plan on shooting and how you will set the camera. Your group must select from one of the following topics for their film unless otherwise approved.
  1. a film about each of the members of the group including some clips of some talent that you have, such as a sport , playing a musical instrument, dancing, reading a poem, an so forth
  2. a video about how to make something. include gathering materials, tools needed, tipos and tricks. You may consider filming in the art building if you want to show making a crafts item or an art item.
  3. a short play that you create, topic subject to approval.

your group will only have one class period to use the camera guaranteed, so plan you filming well. A good film of 5 minutes will easily take the entire 40 minutes of shooting. Take many small shots rather than one long one. editing is much easier with small parts and the download time is much bette too.

good luck

You will have to find time to work on the film inbetween doing other assignments. Class time will be provided as well. All members must participate in filming, acting, and editing to get credit.
