Class Notes 2/20/09

by Amani Channel

Greetings Class

You all did a great job last week. This week we'll have a brief review. We'll work on developing your final projects, and we'll have another editing assignment with Windows Movie Maker.

First take a look at this video I produced this week for a Digital Bootcamp, I'll be participating in.

I shot this green screen, and edited it in Final Cut Pro.

Please make sure you have all of the class notes and papers for this week.

We'll first have a quick quiz/review followed by a discussion that builds on our planning exercise from last week. By now you should start planning your final production. It's time to get serious about developing your script.

You should be critically watching other videos to get ideas about your final production.

Write down any creative ideas you may have, and start thinking about the beginning, middle, and end of your project.

Then, break into your same groups as last week and edit one of the interviews using either Final Cut Pro, or Microsoft Windows Movie Maker. If you shot your interview in green screen you may want to use Final Cut, to practice keying out the green screen.

Remember to always create a file folder for your project on your desktop to save your project. With Final Cut you need to set your scratch disks.
