What happens when you combine two existing movie titles to create your own movie? Movie Mate Parodies, of course. This project allows students to show off their creative side while demonstrating mastery using masking, non-destructive editing, adjustment layers, blending modes, filters, and the type tools. The project usually takes a week to complete if you are working in one hour sessions.
The original lesson was created for Photoshop, but it could be adapted to Illustrator as well.
