Video #7 - "Promotion"

Length: 00:01:00:00 - 00:02:00:00
Description: You will make a promotion/commercial that will be mainly driven by text and audio. You can use a voiceover track, but you cannot have any speech where the viewer sees someone talking. For a good promotion you need to include the necessary 5 W's (who, what, where, when, why) or have some direct "call to action" and you need to get all of that across with your use of text and graphics. Remember to use the four rules for adding elements.


Pre-Production Requirements: First, you must complete the Promo Project Proposal. As far as a storyboard or shot sheet, neither is required for this assignment, but if you found that they helped your overall product, you should use one.

Production Requirements: Much of your footage could have text "over" it. It would be a good idea to follow your shot sheet or storyboard and plan your shots accordingly.

Post-Production Requirements: This is the bulk of this assignment. All of the text and graphics that you need to add will happen during post-production. Remember to apply the four rules for adding elements.

Distribution Requirements:Name your project "3_lastname_Promo" Export your project as .mov file with the H.264 video codec settings. Then, add your 3_lastname_Promo project to your DPS Google Drive, and share it with me.





Video #8 - "Tribute"

Length: 00:01:00:00 - 00:03:00:00 (increments of 30 seconds, but not a frame longer than 3 minutes)
Description: For this project you will use a combination of still images and text to make a video that is a tribute to someone or some group that has a connection to you. You can also use video if you choose, but you must use still images and text.

Pre-Production Requirements: First, you must complete the Tribute Project Proposal . As far as a storyboard or shot sheet, neither is required for this assignment, but if you found that they helped your overall product, you should use one.

Production Requirements: A large part of this project will be gathering your media. Do you already have the images? Are you going to take pictures or video?

Post-Production Requirements: This is where the magic will happen. Use appropriate music with adding motion to your still images (Ken Burns effect) and make something that is memorable.

Distribution Requirements: Name your project "3_lastname_Tribute" Export your project as .mov file with the H.264 video codec settings. Then, add your 3_lastname_Tribute project to your DPS Google Drive, and share it with me.
