Standard Practical Exercise Reflection Sheet

Posted on Jan 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 27, 2015

I use this for every practical exercise I have my students undertake (whether it is animation, photographic, film, planning, whatever).  I have students collate all of these together as a sort of a practical journal - the end result is a go to cheat sheet for all the skills we have covered. It is a brief selection of questions (with prompts) and is broad enough to suit any practical task. It is designed to be done by hand in the last 5 or 10 minutes of a practical session.

A Lesson in Light Leaks and Tall Tales

Posted on Jan 26, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Jan 26, 2015

In this lesson plan, I tried to incorporate many aspects of this course while keeping it simple enough for my film students to still accomplish in one assignment. As you look through this lesson, you'll notice that certain aspect of this lesson assume certain abilities from my students. This is because we've had class for half the year and they already have certain skills and concepts mastered. If applied to another class, topics of quality sound recording, 3 point lighting, composition, editing, and basic color correction would need to be touched on in addition to my lesson. One of the best parts of film is the ability to be creative in story telling. This is why I'm requiring a tall tale storyline with this assignment. This makes the light leaks lesson exactly what it should be; a physical special effect and nothing more. I have included my tutorial for making physical light leaks as a part of this assignment. I've used this technique with my students for a few years now. It works great. My only word... Read More

Shot Construction Worksheet

Posted on Jan 23, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 30, 2015

This short activity provides students with an opportunity to practice storyboarding a range of shots portraying familiar situations. There is a predominant focus on subtlety and it also provides opportunities for sharing and reflection to better deconstruct the work they are doing.  I have included an example page of a completed storyboard from an unrelated project called Fistful of Detentions. I have also included the preliminary draft of this work.  Hopefully this is a helpful reference.  This is obviously designed for Media and Photography classes but would work well in an English class that is working on a film as text assessment.

Storyboard template

Posted on Jan 18, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 24, 2015

This is a storyboard template I use for the planning of any visual project - videos, animations, photography, flash projects, etc. It is adapted from classic storyboard templates to include the rule of thirds. I have found that this results in students naturally following the 'rule of thirds' when composing their shots even if this hasn't been explicitly covered. Also, I often tell my students, as a good rule of thumb, to storyboard about 20 to 30 shots per minute of film. Overall this generally results in better composition overall and a more engaging end product.  I have included links to Mike Browne's introduction to the Rule of Thirds, Brett Lamb's shot type examples, and a South Australian tourism advert that employs these concepts quite beautifully.  Mike Browne Brett Lamb Barossa. Be Consumed A good introductory exercise would be to attempt to storyboard shots from the advertisement.

Advertising and Critical Thinking

Posted on Dec 7, 2014 by Craig Richardson Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

Advertising and Critical Thinking Skills Advertisement is a powerful manipulative force as well as a powerful creative force. Learning how to identify the different strategies used by advertisers and how they are used is an important life skill and involves critical thinking skills.   One project involves having students first evaluate advertisements from different media and brainstorm on the different strategies they believe are being utilized and how effective they believe them to be and whether they are used alone or in tandem.   Second, students will learn about different advertising strategies by watching video and reading articles before creating a summary chart.   Third, students will use various media to create their own advertisements using digital manipulation including still photos and video as well as audio effects.   Fourth, we will explore our views on the ethics of digital manipulation and the inaccurate messages they convey in both advertising and other medi...

Convert quadratic functions from Standard Form to Intercept Form and Vertex Form

Posted on Nov 26, 2014 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Jan 15, 2015

Quadratic functions is a main core Math subject at high school level. That is why, studies on quadratic equations have been numerous and diversified. This article explains a general method to convert a quadratic function, in standard form y = ax^2 + bx + c, to intercept form y = a(x - x1)(x - x2), and vertex form y = a(x - p)^2 + q.

The Quadratic Function and the new Quadratic Formula in Intercept Form

Posted on Nov 18, 2014 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Nov 18, 2014

There are so far 8 common methods to solve quadratic equations. They are: completing the squares, graphing, FOIL factoring, quadratic formula, the Bluma Method, the factoring AC Method, the Diagonal Sum Method, and the most recent Transforming Method. Students are usually confused to select the best method to solve a given quadratic equation. When a given quadratic equation can't be factored, the quadratic formula would be the best choice to solve it. There is a new Quadratic Formula in Intercept Form that is simpler and easier to remember than the classical formula.
