    For our first Video Production we will be creating digital poetry.
    Step 1: Create your I AM poem. Use this web site as a guide.
    Step 2: Copy and Paste your I AM poem into Microsoft Word. This will be your script for your video. Practice reading your poem.

    Step 3: In Microsoft Word, you will be printing a copy on 8 ½ x 14 paper. You must use a different font than the standard font, adjust the font size to fit the paper size, and change the color of your font.
    Your name, course name, and period must be located below the last stanza of your poem.
    DO NOT print until I tell you too.

    Step 4: Working with a partner, you will film a different EXTREME CLOSE UP shot for each line of your poem. Each shot must be a part of you and one line of your poem, narrated. The I AM lines of your poems must be all the same shot of your face.
    Step 5: Upload your shots to iMovie and edit them in the order of your I AM poem.
    Step 6: Please include a title slide with your Name, Course Name, and Period.
