5 Things That I Love


Video #1 - "I Love It!" - Stock Edit

Length: at least 00:00:30:00
Description: Using our stock footage service "videoblocks.com" and audioblocks.com, you will search and find video and audio clips that you can edit together in a logical sequence that will highlight one of your five "I Love It" list items from your 8/24/16 activity. You will also need to add text/graphic to your project. You will find AMAZING text templates under the After Effects section on "videoblocks.com" In addition to the text/graphics throughout, add a tag line either at the start, end, or both that reads "_ I Love It!" This assignment will not need any "production" by you. Essentially this is a complete "post-production" assignment to get you acquainted with our stock video and audio service, and to reacquaint you with the editing process in Final Cut Pro, or to let you try Adobe Premiere Pro. Most of you will also use Adobe After Effects for your motion graphic titles.
Pre-Production Requirements: You must complete the I Love It Proposal . (Just click the link) For this first assignment, we will NOT do any other planning documents.
Production Requirements: None
Post-Production Requirements: As mentioned in the description, this assignment is essentially all post-production. After downloading all of your assets, edit them together using transitions, the required text, and video effects of your choosing. To keep the pacing tight, use "at least" 10 different video clips.
Distribution Requirements: Name your project "3_lastname_ILoveIt" Export your project as .mov file with the H.264 video codec settings. Then, add your 3_lastname_ILoveIt project to your DPS Google Drive, and share it with me. (ask me and or see the board to make sure you have the correct Google account for Mr. Laman)




Video #2 - "Great" - It's Gonna Be Great
Length: 00:00:30:00 - 00:02:00:00
Description: It is the start of a new school year. So much excitement, optimism, and enthusiasm. Pick something you are looking forward to this year at Thomas Jefferson High School, and produce a video to showcase what you are excited for and tag it with the line "........it's gonna be great." This is the first assignment of the year in which you need to capture your own video. Quick interviews or soundbites from other people who share your excitement would be one way to complete this assignment. For equipment checkout, make sure to follow the correct procedure.
