Capture the Spring Video Challenge

Our next video challenge is titled, Capture the Spring. Create a 90-second film capturing what the Spring looks like to you.

Include the following elements in your Capture the Fall film:
  1. 10 or more different video clips
  2. Use a standard transition between every video clip (like a dissolve or cross dissolve)
  3. Embed a piece of CC licensed music to help create a distinctive mood for your film
  4. Include a Title Slide at the beginning with an original title
  5. Add a Credit Slide at the end citing the source of your music
Optional: Experiment with video effects or filters. Try giving your film an interesting look by adding a video effect in post-production. 

Have fun. Be creative. DUE DATE: May 11th

Here's are two examples from a similar project we've done in the past called, Capture the Fall:

Sub Plans for Periods 1 & 3 - Wednesday April 18th

Good morning,

Unfortunately, I am out again today taking care of my daughter. Please follow the directions below as you continue planning your CAP Hollywood stories:

  1. Carefully complete your story planning poster today. Please make sure you have added EVERY possible event or scene in the film from start to finish following the 3 act structure. Some groups were being too general with their events I noticed. Each group must list EVERY little thing that happens in each scene. The idea is that your group figures out all these details now so when you write the script you'll have an idea where you are going.
  2. Once you have completed the story poster you can transition to starting the script. For CAP Hollywood, we are using the standard one column screenplay format. We were going to go over this on class today but instead you're going to have to use the following worksheet to figure it out.

    Fortunately, there are only 4 basic elements in a screenplay format: Slugline, Action, Character's Names and Dialogue. CLICK THIS LINK TO SEE AN EXAMPLE OF THESE FOUR BASIC SCRIPT ELEMENTS.
  3. Please work together as a group as you craft your script. It's never too early to start thinking about music and even sound effects. Google Docs is the best format for writing your script as every group member can be invited to be an editor. Group members can also start working on securing filming locations and reaching out to potential actors/actresses. 
Feel free to email me with any questions this morning: cap10media@gmail. And please use the time today wisely. I look forward to reviewing your scripts Friday.

PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL THE CAP HOLLYWOOD STORY POSTERS ARE COLLECTED AND STORED IN MY ROOM AT THE END OF CLASS. YOU WILL CONTINUE TO USE THOSE OVER TH ENEXT FEW WEEKS!

Documentary Research Outline/Interview List

Hello,

Please make a copy of the following outline below using gdocs. Invite all your group members as well as Mr. Mayo (cap10media@gmail.com).

Documentary Research Outline

  • Each group member MUST assign themselves to ONE PART of the outline and begin their research using the MAIN IDEA HANDOUT. Voter Guides are located on the table next to my desk. Please make sure to return all voter guides by end of class.

    First, each group must identify the main sections of your outline. What are the main ideas of your topic/issue that you need to elaborate on in your film? Then, each student in the group must choose what section of the outline they are responsible for.

    Find ONE trusted source today that connects to your particular section of the outline. Read the article/source you find and complete the Main Idea Handout. Once you have completed the handout transfer the info to your Research Outline. It's a good idea for each student to color code what they add so everyone can see who is working/contributing. 

    MAIN IDEA HANDOUTS ARE DUE AT THE END OF CLASS TODAY. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAMES ON HANDOUT BEFORE TURNING IN.
  • Each group must generate a list of at least FOUR potential people they can interview: Name, Title, Organization, Contact Info. Start this list at the bottom of your Research Outline. Time permitting, send out an email or two requesting interviews. 

PLEASE USE CLASS TIME TODAY WISELY. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! :) mayo
