Student Showcase plan

Posted on Jul 29, 2015 by Amy Roberts Last Activity on Jul 29, 2015

I wanted to share a basic look at our Student Showcase that we hold each year.  We call it the Media MashUP and it is pretty simple to put together.  I have my graphic arts students create posters and programs to promote the event.  I use Google Docs to keep create an entry form. Students submit their work as a link on Youtube - so I don't have to deal with any files until I am getting ready for the award show night.  I have my Animation students create show opens and animation interstitials for the award show (ie: AND THE WINNER IS!) We rent a red carpet, have T-shirts made(graphic design students work) and have our photography students do red carpet photos.  I hold the event in our auditorium in Spring on the last Friday night of classes. I have 2 senior student act as hosts.  It's a great way to end the year.  Here is the link for my entry form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/17DErl-BVUVkP0zyKS94kB2LF3wi66pDnZppk5SDBVsQ/viewform Our Facebook page with photos fro...

Soundscape Task

Posted on Jul 22, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jul 26, 2015

This is a short task to introduce students to the importance of sound in film and how they can harness it in Adobe Audition.  Sound can make or break a film. Bad sound is ten times more distracting than bad visuals and is something that audiences won’t forgive. The best way to get good sound is to record well on set and follow the right procedures. Sometimes issues are unavoidable and students get bad sound and it’s very important that they know how to fix (or cover up) sound issues. Provided (for free) with Adobe software is a collection of copyright free sound and music. This collection is enormous – over 11 thousand individual files. Using these sounds students are to create a 20 second soundscape that establishes a realistic location. These sounds can be found here.  I had my IT department place these files on one of our College drives (so that the students could access them without needing to download them themselves - there's more than 20gb of files here). I... Read More
