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.

Title Task

Posted on Jan 21, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 21, 2015

This task is designed to assist students in analysing what goes into film, TV, game and webseries titles. It then moves on to brainstorming and then designing titles for their own project.  Works really well with these resources (as well as my previously posted storyboard template): Art of the Title How They Did It

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.

Global Video Battle 2015

Posted on Jan 7, 2015 by Matthijs Clasener Last Activity on Jan 8, 2015

After the great successes of the last three years it's not surprising that the Global Video Battle continues in 2015! This competition was started in 2011 by Matthijs Clasener and Dusty Parrish.  The idea is simple: Students teams trying to make the best short fiction movie possible in order to get one winner! The winning team wins a year long subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud. And all teams get feedback from a professional jury which is a wonderful prize too! More information on our website www.globalvideobattle.com and of course we would like you to join.

My Flipped Classroom Experiment

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

As part of the 2014 Adobe Generation Professional: Video course, I was asked to share a resource I made using Premiere about my flipped classroom.  This little video doesn't focus on Adobe products but utilizes them as I do a lesson for my students.   As an added bonus, it is a flipped report on flipped learning from early in 2014.  I've now done this for 2 years and the results haven't wavered.  Only one student has failed and that's because the student left all tests blank, turned in no homework, and was often truant.Class statistics: a. Students ages 15-19 b. Videos were each about 3-5 min (one concept each).  A whole lesson is about 10-15 min of instruction.  I made no changes to what I would traditionally share live in class. c.  Were there any students who did not bother to watch? A few at first. However, in our Moodle classes, I made quizzes to complete after watching (short 2-3 min) and I occasionally do examples from their homework. This is the same issue I wo... Read More

Premiere Pro: How to apply the Ultra Key effect on Animated Graphics

Posted on Dec 31, 2014 by Alyce Hoggan Last Activity on Jan 8, 2015

The attached resource is an instructional video to demonstrate one particular feature of Premiere Pro. It shows the step-by-step process of using the Ultra Key effect to make a digital green-screen transparent. In addition, I share how to apply a black and white effect and reduce opacity. The animated graphics were created using Processing for my music video called "Night Flight" (made during the Adobe Generation Professional: Video course).

A simple how to guide for Premiere Pro

Posted on Dec 16, 2014 by Brian Shaw Last Activity on Jan 26, 2015

A handout I prepared for staff at my school. While it uses videos made at the school which I cannot share, I am sure that you can use videos that you have created or go to https://archive.org/details/movies for a huge range of public domain/creative commons use videos. I placed these videos into a shared folder on the school's network for staff to use during the professional learning session of 1 hour.

Creating Video For Use In Teaching & Learning - Premiere Pro

Posted on Dec 15, 2014 by Rob Knight Last Activity on Dec 16, 2014

A structured 8+ hour professional development plan designed to help educators across all subject areas consider how the creation of video material can support teaching & learning especially using flipped methodologies. We look at the use of Premiere Pro from the capture stage all the way through editing and creating an output video file which educators can use in their teaching & learning via their institutional VLE or a media sharing web site such as YouTube / Vimeo. The course incorporates 'flipped' principles for the direct instruction portion so as to allow educators to maximise the valuable face to face time for guided / independent practice as well as allowing us as course leaders to harness the experience of higher level users and foster an environment of peer support and social learning. The session has been used successfully to support the delivery of media suite facilities in a UK higher education establishment within subject areas of Business, law and Social Science although it is equ...

Video - Types of Shots (Real World Examples)

Posted on Dec 14, 2014 by Mircea Lungu Last Activity on Dec 14, 2014

This is my assignment of "AdobeGenPro: Video" course - week 2, a video called "At a Great Ice Skating Rink - The Shot Scavenger Hunt". I went to a great indoor ice skating rink, going past the Parliament Palace and, while video-recording, I took into account what I had learned so far, part of the video course. I used a full HD digital handheld camcorder with no advanced features available. I also used a tripod while filming at the indoor ice skating rink. There are various types of shots according to the theory. Basic static shots (which are the shots with no camera movement): Extreme Wide Shot (EWS)Extreme Long Shot (ELS)Wide Shot (W/S) - this is sometimes called a Full Shot (FS)Long Shot (L/S)Medium Shot (M/S)Medium Close Up (MCU)Close Up (C/U)Extreme Close Up (ECU)Over the Shoulder Shot (O/S)Point of View Shot (POV)Dutch Angle (DA) Action shots (which are the shots in which the camera moves): Zoom or IN/OUTPan or LEFT/RIGHTTruck or Track, or IN/OUTTilt or UP/DOWNArch The types of...

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...
