48 Hour Challenge

This project will require you to work with a classmate to create a 3 to 5 minute video utilizing all of the techniques discussed in class to this point. Additionally you must use 3 of the following props and three lines of script. You will create the entire audio track in Soundtrack Pro. You may NOT use any pre-recorded music. All audio must be created in Soundtrack Pro!!

Choice of props (Pick 3):

    ·Stuffed animal



    ·Text book

    ·Cell phone



    ·Can of Tuna

Choice of Lines of Script (Pick 3)

    ·This is our new product

    ·What are you planning to do with that

    ·I am sure you are mistaken

    ·If only I had thought of that

    ·There has been a breach in security

    ·The invasion is planned for tomorrow

    ·He/she went quietly into the night

    ·After I finish watching this

    ·Would you like to dance?

The props and lines of script MUST be essential to the overall story. You cannot just randomly speak a line of script or randomly show a prop. They must be a central part of the story!!

Steps to complete:

1.Decide on the props and lines of script

2.You and your partner must write a memo to me where you identify the props, script and overall story idea for the project

3.Write your script (See attached example)

4.Storyboard the project


6.Edit footage in Final Cut Pro

7.Create soundtrack in Soundtrack Pro

8.Export video from FCP

I will use the rubrics on the back side of this page to grade your project. Make sure you completely understand the requirements.

Storyboard shows exceptional detail of audio and video components, all camera angles are identified, exceptional detail provided in each frame of storyboard. Evident that the student put a great deal of thought and planning into the storyboard.

Shows in detail what finished project will look like.

Average detail in audio and video components, average detail provided in each frame of the storyboard. Evident that student put some time and planning into the storyboard but could have used more. Shows and acceptable idea of what finished project will look like.

Very little to no detail in storyboard. Looks like it was put together in a relatively short period of time. Does not provide an adequate idea of what finished project will look like.

​This is a great idea. You might also want to take the content in the description and also make it into a PDF/Word doc that other members could download and replicated this idea with their students. Thanks for sharing!
