PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Posted on Nov 10, 2015 by Beverly Baker Last Activity on Nov 10, 2015

Down to the wire on this one.  I had a lot of fun using After Effects for the title page the animation screen.  In fact, I hope to find time to go back and use stills with animations for the rest of project rather that camera video.  While I drew I drew on Marks skill set to do the title page, Deila skills helped me through the second sequence's animations.  I also played around with orientation animations and even clip art. A word of thanks to all the facilitators for the course, I enjoyed it ever so much!  Can't wait for games tomorrow! PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Shot Construction Worksheet - Flipped Learning Lesson

Posted on Oct 21, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 19, 2015

This is a revised version of this post. 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. This lesson is designed for Media and Photography classes but would work well in an English class that is working on a film as text assessment. Realising that I often spend a good portion of beginning of the lesson going through examples and shot types I thought I would try a flipped learning approach - the lesson begins with a Video Essay to be watched by the students before the lesson so that they can get straight into the activity and use the class time to their advantage. I have attached a link to the YouTube video and also the shot construction worksheet.  Just in case the YouTube link doesn't work, this is it: Read More

Lord of the Rings Edit

Posted on Oct 19, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 20, 2015

I received this project a few years ago.  Its the script, soundtrack and RAW video clips from the first Lord of the Rings movie. The project included script comprehension, clip edits and cutaway designations, sound/audio design and timing of reaction shots according to the actual movie.  The best part of this is the students have to determine the correct clips, sound files from the clips and clip designations and they can add reactions and cutaways the actual movie does not have.  This is a great production edit project! PS: The video starts at Aragorn saying "If by my life or death....The audio quality will need edited!!!! Let the fun begin! PLEASE HAVE YOUR STUDENTS CROP THE TIME CODE OFF THE PROJECT! I have created a drop box to download the zip file of items.  If you do not have a drop box log in, go to and create an account, Its Free.

This project uses multiple phases of production involving scriptwriting, voice-over narration, acting, filming, lighting, color corrections, sound design and creative thinking to develop a short movie trailer.  These students were lucky enough to find an abandoned school that the owners let them use.

"The Worst Roommate Ever" Practice Edit

Posted on Sep 25, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 21, 2015

I found this video on Film Riot which they suggested be shared for basic video editing practice.  The material depending on what grades you teach may not be appropriate for school.  Not for foul language but just in general content.  This is up to your discretion.  I am attaching the script and the video for this project that teaches practical editing, timing, reaction shots and cutaways from raw footage shot by the Film Riot Team.  Please have your students give credit to Film Riot in the credits of their project.

Berry Broadcast

Posted on Sep 21, 2015 by Greg Allen Last Activity on Sep 23, 2015

My 2nd year students produce a weekly news-type "what's going on" show for our High School. We are the Logansport Berries (don't judge us) and our mascot is Felix the Cat (why I don't know nor do I know what that has to do with berries) The Berry Broadcast is uploaded to Facebook once a week (every Wednesday on our homeroom day).  On Thursday we talk about what next week's show will look like, discuss events happening that week or coming up, and teams of 2 or 3 select stories or segments they will work on.  An anchor ties the segments together (with sprinkled in announcements) and all try to have everything wrapped up for the Tuesday deadline. It's a great way to get all students working toward a common goal.  They do a great job. You can find the Facebook page here

Green Screen Music Video

Posted on Sep 18, 2015 by Greg Allen Last Activity on Oct 5, 2015

I gave my advanced video production class the project of creating an ALL green screen music video using motion tracking.  The students started complaining about the project saying that it was too difficult and bet me that I couldn't do it.  So I wrote my own song and proved them wrong.  LOL.  It was fun to do and I was able to help them work through the difficulties that they were having by showing them my process.  Enjoy

Conversing With Myself Clone Project

Posted on Sep 6, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 7, 2015

This is a great project for Critical Thinking and Problem Solving.  Students will have to script their concept and determine specific angles, movements, cutaways and timing to make sure that their cloned individuals are all in place and look realistic.  Great script writing, filming and editing project in Premiere or After Effects or both.  This can be done as a Photoshop or Photography Collage Concept as well.  This sample production has a noticeable jump cut which I use as a sample of what moving the camera will result in.

Final Short Film

Posted on Aug 15, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Sep 19, 2015

This is a culmination of every aspect students learned over the entire course of the year.  It includes lighting, producing/directing, editing, filming, filter effects, shot composition, location scouting and photography for story boards, special effects, animated titles, scriptwriting, story-boards, video research and final rendering.  This project still bugs me because they didn't complete what I think could be a really good short film.  However what they completed in my mind is really good for high school students.  Especially finding a burned down house to match the online video they found to assist what their actor did.

Sound Design Project

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 21, 2015

One of the students most detailed projects that I use as a final project is the sound design project.  It gives a final assessment on all the areas that are taught throughout the year.  I find animated short films online and remove the sound.  Students have the choice to choose which video they want to do and then they must repeatedly watch the video and write down a list of sounds, sound effects and music they feel will enhance the video.  The choice of the mood, timing and sounds/effects music are all up to them.  Then they must download and organize their sounds to use.  Students will include critical thinking, problem solving skills, creativity, timing as well as visual effect, relativity to the theme, mood and meeting criteria and deadlines.  After they are completed, I allow them to view the original to see how they stack up against animated film students around the world.  Some without being biased are better than the originals.  The rule is they are not all...

Cartoon Illustration/Animation

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 3, 2015

I had my students write short stories and then record the voices for each character.  Then the students drew, illustrated and exported their characters for animation in After Effects and Adobe Premiere.  Voice overs were recorded and edited using Audition and then inserted into the animation process.  Songs and sound effects were taken off royalty free web sites. Here is a finished animation of characters, backgrounds and facial features and mouth movements completed by one of my sophomores. The cartoon character animation adapted and Papagayo voice animation software to complete this project.
