Why Use Movies? Video has a special power for kids Video is COOL! Another way to show learning Good for ELL, LD kids Impact (favorite thing I did) Audience (creates an atmosphere of “what am I cable of” global audience)
Video Projects Assign time limits ( A must!) 30 seconds – this makes them careful about what is included No Violence and martial arts Start with podcasts and slideshows Encourage Quality Students may work alone in a group with no more than 3. Provide alternatives ( poster, etc) not everyone can produce video because of lack of equipment.
What is involved with a movie project? Gathering research needed for the project Planning – creating a storyboard Locate pictures, sound effects, music, and narrative (be careful to maintain of list of sources for the credits) Producing Creation of video Editing of video Testing to make sure it work on another computer Finishing Saving the project as well as finished product and delivering product to recipient.
Storyboard Contains a rough sketch or outline of the project. Timeline of the project. Helps to keep the developer on track. Should be complete and approved begin production begins. May look like this:
Space Requirement on Computer For every hour of captured 12-13 Gigabytes of disk space is needed. For every minute captured.2 gigabytes of disk space is needed. (12/60 minutes) After project has been rendered into a Movie. It will be compressed. When downloading a compressed movie the rule of thumb is: 1 Minute of Video = 2 MB (Another reason for keeping project to a minimal time constraint)
