  • Next assignment…
    • Using your storyboards and one-sheet proposal as a rough guide, create a 10-slide presentation in Powerpoint 2003 (or other presentation program) and upload to Slideshare. Do not indicate your name anywhere in the slideshow.
    • The criteria are the same regarding the slides and the information contained within, that is
    • Three of the screens will contain a graphic and a block of text.
    • Two of the screens will contain charts, one will be a pie chart and the other is your choice.
    • One screen will be text only.
    • Two screens will contain full-screen graphics.
    • Two of the screens are up to you but I suggest that if you are referencing outside sources that you reserve one screen at the end for citations.
    • Another idea might be to create an original piece of art in Photoshop if you want to try out painting and drawing in Photoshop.
