Homework (Storyboarding) is due but will be accepted until Friday. There are extra copies on the whiteboard and on the Homework tab of this blog.
The studio will be open after school on Tuesday this week from 2:20 – 4:00. If you need extra time or support feel free to utilize this time. Make sure to arrange transportation with your families before staying after.
This week we will begin the planning process for our final film, the Commercial. Students will work in groups to complete the Commercial Planning Guide. This helps them organize their product name, product claims, theme phrase and logo. The products must be completely made up by them. Once the Commercial Planning Guide is approved they may complete the Pre-Production paperwork (organization sheet, storyboard, script and shot sheet), this must also be approved. This project is the most fun of all the Video A projects. We will be working on this project for 3 weeks.
There will be a sub on Thursday for hours 4, 5, 6 and on Friday for hours 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Please encourage your child to make good choices and enjoy the guest teachers. The students will be storyboarding a Pixar Short (Cars), Mater and the Ghostlight on Thursday, and Pixars Inside Out on Friday. Analyzing which shots are used in famous movies is good practice and helps the students remember the shots when they plan their next film. This exercise will also help them draw camera shots to convey what they plan, so others understand.
Homework will go home on Friday for the weekend.
