This is a great beginning assignment for students to learn how to put video pieces together rather than just one long stream of video without cuts. The goal is for video to be fast paced while telling a story.
Students will learn how to put together video to form a sequence, and then edit the project in any editing program. Students will learn what a sequence is using basic camera angles, then brainstorm a sequence, capture video with a camera, edit, and write a script. Rubric for grading included. You can also combine this with the Natural Sound project/activity for added practice. Nat sound activity is for sale in my items.
The first 5 seconds of any video should consist of the following:
4 seconds of black
15 frame (half second) slate (with slug of video)
15 frames of black
*included in project bundle
