Final Project Guidelines
DUE: MONDAY, December 13, 3:30pm
100% finished and mastered to tape for exam time

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. You may also create a video installation piece if you like. The only qualification is that it must be art.

Things to Consider:

Professional Proposal: You must write a professional, well-written Project Proposal. This must include:
1) your concept clearly stated
2) what type of shots and camera work
3) what your intention is with the piece (what you want the audience to think about with the piece)
4) details about the sound, editing, timing, and text if used.
It must be in paragraph form, spell checked, grammar checked, and typed. Bring the printout or email it by 11/23. I will give you feedback to help you toward your storyboard

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!
