Video Production Project
1) Shot list (an incomplete list)
2) Anatomy of a Scene
3) Blank Storyboard for You to Fill Out
Each member of each group will fill out a minimum of one Storyboard, and turn in their Storyboard(s) with their group’s project. As a group: your group will fill out a minimum of one separate Storyboard, and turn in that Storyboard(s) with your group’s project. This means that each group is responsible for a minimum of one Storyboard for each student in your group, plus a minimum of one more storyboard for the entire group (so, if your group has four members, your group needs to turn in a minimum of five Storyboards; five members equals a minimum of six Storyboards; etcetera).
Each Storyboard will be the same scene, but will include individualized interpretations of the scene.
Because each scene will be composed of a minimum of five shots, each Storyboard will have a minimum of five drawings. Each drawing should represent a shot from your scene.
For each drawing, you need to:
A) Describe what you have drawn, and
B) Explain why you chose to depict the shot the way you did.
In your group, look at each Storyboard, compare and discuss each group member’s ideas, and create a group Storyboard. The group Storyboard should represent the best idea(s). It should be drawn by the most talented artist(s) in the group. In other words, it doesn’t necessarily have to represent a collaboration of work and ideas, but it should represent the best work and ideas your group has agreed upon.
Use the remainder of the day as a planning day. Discuss things like props and equipment (Will you need to borrow equipment on filming day? Understand that the class equipment is limited. Do you have equipment of your own to bring in? Cameras, microphones, etcetera). The 22nd is a week away, so figure out a way to remind each other about. Exchange email or cell phone numbers with people you trust in the group.
