Final Project Guidelines
DUE: THURSDAY, December 11
mastered to tape by start of class.

Objective:
Create a 3-6 minute video, content of your own choice. You may choose to experiment with form, content, or hopefully both. You may make an experimental piece, a narrative, a documentary, or a short essay piece. It must, however, be art.

Things to Consider:

SCRIPT ESSENTIALS:
Your script must include a paragraph describing your idea, and descriptions of the visual and aural sequence.

STORYBOARD ESSENTIALS:
Your storyboard must contain the following:

  1. A Sketch of the shot
  2. Description of plot / action of story
  3. Transitions (dissolves, wipes, cuts, fades)
  4. Description of Camera work (i.e. close-up, pan, track, midshot, etc.)
  5. Soundtrack (description of narration, sound effects, non-diegetic sounds, etc.)
  6. TIMECODE: length of shot, overall time

** Your final grade will be comprised of grades based on meeting all of the deadlines and the thoroughness of the script and storyboard, so be sure to come to class prepared! The final is worth 100 points, so please take it seriously!
