Project 4 Storyboard

  1. 1. Project 4 Storyboard Elisabeth Gabriel Multimedia Design Fall 2009
  2. 2. a Project 4 Overview For the final project I have decided to do something fun relating to a favorite pastime of mine. I will create a website using Flash, and the theme of the site will be about reading and books. The main purpose of the site will be to review and recommend books I have read. One section will be a “book of the month” audio podcast book review, another section will show previews of movies based on books (one currently in theaters and one available in stores), and the last section will provide resources on where to find and download audiobooks (including ones being reviewed in this website). This last section is also aimed at providing an accessible option for those with vision impairments to have access to books.

The title of the book being reviewed will follow, and below this will be an image of the book cover and an audio podcast review of the book I will create using Audacity (see Project 4 Storyboard Page 3).

  7. 7. Project 4 Storyboard Page 3 From Frame 2: Audio Podcast Book Review (text may differ in final version) Hello book lovers! For this month’s review, we will be looking at the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan: The Lightening Thief. The series is listed for young adults, but having read the entire 5 book set I can say that this is a story that anyone would enjoy reading no matter their age. The first out of a series of 5 books, the Lightening Thief begins the tale of Percy Jackson with the discovery of his heritage as the half-blood son of the Greek god Poseidon, and his role in a prophecy that foretells the fate of the gods, one which depends on the actions that Percy will take upon his 16th birthday…providing of course that he can survive until then! The story brings the classic tales in Greek mythology to the modern world, where the gods and all the creatures from the tales live hidden among us. Children like Percy who are half-human and half-god are known as half-bloods, and during the summer they each attend “Camp Half-Blood,” where they learn to control their powers in the hope of becoming a hero like those in the old Greek mythology tales. The author, Rick Riordan, does a fantastic job of creating this world hidden within our own world, as well as the characters introduced throughout the story. And his portrayal of the Greek gods in the modern world and their antics is a riot at times! Imagine Ares the god of war riding around the world in his own motorcycle gang, or finding Medusa running a garden gnome emporium store off the side of a road in New Jersey? And who knew that Mount Olympus today is actually located at the top of the Empire State Building in New York City? (Providing you have the key to the 600th floor that is!) But I would definitely recommend adding not only this book, but the entire Percy Jackson series to your reading list, you won’t regret it! And don’t forget to check out our movie preview review next month, where we’ll be reviewing the Lightening Thief, being released in theaters on February 12th 2010. Remember if you have a favorite book, send us the title and we’ll be glad to feature it during our monthly reviews. Until then, enjoy your reading time! Additional Notes: The podcast will be recorded using a microphone headset and Audacity. A short interview with another person who has read the book may also be included as part of the podcast. A link to the amazon.com page for the book will be included below the audio review: http://www.amazon.com/ Lightning-Thief-Percy-Jackson-Olympians/dp/0786838655/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255380463&sr=8-4 Podcast name has not been finalized.
  8. 8. Project 4 Storyboard Page 4 Frame 3: Recommended Book-Themed Movies Navigation info Page links on the left side of the page will go to each section of the site (main page plus 3 additional section). Links will be buttons created using Flash. Media information Banner image of books. Flash initials GIF logo at the bottom of the page. SWF files of movie previews (See Project 4 Storyboard Page 5). Content Information and Additional Notes: This page will show previews of movies in theaters and in stores that are based on books. The title of the page and a brief intro of what will be included in the page will appear on top. Movie previews being reviewed/recommended will be shown depending on what month it is (which will appear as text below the page intro text). Below this will be a movie preview clip for one movie currently in or will be in theaters and one already in stores (as swf files, see Project 4 Storyboard Page 5). A brief review and a link to more details about the movie will appear below each video preview. At the very bottom will be my flash initials logo and page copyright information. Page title has not been finalized.
  9. 9. Project 4 Storyboard Page 5 From Frame 3: SWF Video File Movie Previews and Descriptions Books in Theater: • The Twilight Saga: New Moon Released November 20, 2009 • Movie Preview Clip (clip is about 1:49 minutes long) • Text: Based on the fantasy-romance series the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyers, New Moon is the second movie and book following the story of Bella Swan and her involvement with the Cullen family of vampires. Critics so far have been positive about the second installment of the Twilight series movies, and fans of the book are commenting on this movie as being much better than its predecessor. • Official Site: http://www.twilightthemovie.com/ • Movie Reviews and Updates: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1259571/ • My Review: Although a lot of people were disappointed with the first movie, if you’re a fan of the book you might enjoy seeing New Moon. Otherwise I would recommend saving your money and waiting for the television release. Books in Stores: • Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Released May 16, 2008 in theaters, December 8, 2008 in stores. • Movie Preview Clip (clip is about 2:31 minutes long) • Text: Prince Caspian is the second movie in the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. The second movie provides the same breathtaking effects, endearing characters, and memorable soundtrack as the first. Definitely a must for your movie collection. • Official Site: http://disneydvd.disney.go.com/the-chronicles-of-narnia-prince-caspian.html • Movie Reviews: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0499448/ • My Review: Hopefully you don’t need my review to convince yourself to purchase this movie! Fans of the book as well as those who haven’t read the series will both enjoy Prince Caspian. For more information on books and their movie counterparts, visit the “Based on the Book” database at http://www.mcpl.lib.mo.us/readers/movies/. Additional Notes: Text sections may change after the movie is released in theaters.
