Homework assignment #14 (Thursday class)

Due by the start of the Dec. 12 class meeting

1. Read:

2. Come up with at least 1 question about any of the readings and be prepared to discuss the question(s) in class.

3. Review this video on shooting sequences and read the grading rubric. Then, plan, shoot and edit a 1-2 minute video sequence that compresses the time it takes to show someone doing something. You can use the footage you gathered in class or you can shoot more. Here’s an example. Here’s another example.

  • Don’t stage anything. Instead, be there when something interesting is happening.
  • For a 1-2 minute video sequence you’ll need about 2 dozen different shots, each about 3 seconds long (after they’re edited).
  • You can add music to your sequence as long as the song is Creative Commons licensed or if you have the necessary permissions to use it. Remember to credit the artist.
  • Publish the video on your Tumblr. Or, if you prefer, bring it to class on your USB drive.
