Public service announcements

Project Published 11/12/13 Last updated on 6/8/17
Public service announcements (PSA) bring public awareness to particular issues. They are short, concise videos that make a point quickly and clearly. PSAs can be an effective way to teach students how to focus content on a specific topic and goal while learning the video production process.

In this project, students plan, shoot, edit, and produce a PSA. They analyze how a particular shot will impact the mood and intention in a video. They learn how to create motion effects for both video and audio. For this project, you might decide to work with school groups or local community organizations so students create a PSA for a particular issue or group.
