Video 2 – Reflection

Please comment on what you thought of the class, what you’ve learned, and how your final video turned out.

Was it what you expected?

Did you do your fair share?

What did you do better this time around than on your first video?

How could this class be better (i.e. types of projects, format, or anything else you can think of)?


Today you are to complete your test. GOOD LUCK!

No talking until you have finished.

After EVERYONE HAS FINISHED, you may talk.

After test – work on your video edits!

Be finished with videos by tomorrow!

Review Day

Today we’ll spend a few minutes reviewing for the final (TUESDAY’s TEST). It will include the same questions from the pre-test along with a few more over new things we’ve covered.

Today also, go through the BLOG (this page), and check to make sure you’ve responded when necessary. I went through each of the assigned postings and left a reply at the bottom as to whether you earned credit for a post on that topic. PLEASE CHECK! Any late posts not posted by today will NOT earn credit

Post a comment telling where you think you are in your production.

  • Is your production book complete and ready for grading?
  • Are you finished with all your shooting?
  • Do you have all the scenes you need to complete your video?
  • Do you have all the resources (sound effects and images) you need?
  • Does everyone know who is editing what?

Leave me a list so I can determine if you need help or resources to complete your video!

For Group 3

I was watching this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mI_n732MWeo&feature=related and thought of something I want to share.


Special Effects

You are probably going to use at least one or two special effects in this movie. I’ve posted tutorials here.

Exporting audio – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7qfQlE7t50

Importing audio into Garageband – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLv6MPRFFE8

Watch at least three videos then let me know what you thought of the tutorials.

Please leave a comment telling where you are on your production book. You can paste the URL also so I can check it quickly. Once I okay your production book, you may begin recording. Make sure you know what you are doing so you don’t waste your time. Think in professional terms. How much money would you spend per hour if you just took off and started filming without a plan? You’d have to pay your director, your camera crew, your actors, permits for location shooting, etc. HAVE A PLAN AND FOLLOW IT!
