To create a coherent Project #5, you need to do a significant amount of planning and preparation before you begin shooting footage or entering into the video editing environment.
Once you've chosen your text (and your group, if you go that path) planning and scripting/storyboarding are a good place to start. Take a look at Indie-film-making.com's discussion of planning, scripting, storyboarding .
Here's a sample of a storyboard in someone's book trailer creation process.
I am starting a document in Google Docs where we will add everyone's groups (if any) and choice of texts for the projects. Please add yours as soon as they are chosen. I will respond with my approval, any comments, etc.
On Monday I will post a survey of tech access and literacy for all of us to take. Please watch for it.
By next Wednesday: Please have your text and group members, if any, confirmed.
