Be sure to watch Mr. Bateup's video alongside the supplemental guide ( to create some differentiation for your various learning styles.

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

Creativity Booster

Posted on Sep 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 19, 2015

Over the course of this year I have been attempting to build my skills in a range of Adobe programs (particularly Photoshop and After Effects). I have given myself a task using the restriction method where I must create as many new animations as possible using the same source material. Each animation must be based around the image you see here (or some derivative of it) - an emblem of sorts that I have created for myself. The animations must also perform a perfect loop so that they can be saved as GIFs. Although not a specific restriction I have also been endeavouring to keep file size small given the nature and use of GIFs.  Skills in programs like Photoshop and After Effects are like muscles in the body - if you exercise them they will grow and strengthen and if not you will begin to lose the ability to do things you once found simple. This exercise has been a great boon for me in terms of my own skills and my creative thinking and problem solving - I can only imagine what students woul... Read More
