Public service announcements
Project Published Nov 12, 2013 Last updated on Jun 8, 2017
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.
