Part of Lesson Plan: 14 Shots
Activity Overview / Details
For this your students may have anywhere from limited to advanced prior knowledge in editing.
**My students have already learned some basic editing prior to this lesson.
If you are doing this lesson with students who have not done any editing in your class yet, you can simply have them plug their camera into your TV or computer and verbally tell you and the class which shot is which and who took each shot. Of course, this will be less fun and hands on, but you will still be able to see their work and provide them with informal asssessment and comments based on what you see.
For my class, I have them go to their assigned computer and capture their clips into a new folder called " 14 Shots-Add group name here."
Next they must complete the following tasks in 1 class period:
-Import and arrange all clips in an appropriate creative manner where there is continutity and flow. The 14 shots do not have to be in the same order as the shotlist or the order that they were filmed in.
-Each member must create a text overlay with their name, and which shot they took for all of their own shots. The text overlay should be of appropriate size, color, and placement to fit the clip.
-Students are allowed to use any transitions, video fx, and audio necessary to make this video look and sound professional.
-Students must add a creative title, and a full credit roll that includes any sources used and all group members names.
-After finalizing their editing session students will render or export their video to their folder.
-The final videos will be screened the next day in class for the final assessment.
