Good morning. Please do your attendance.

Your movie review were due (on Youtube and then shared in the Google classroom) on Friday. I will accept them today and tomorrow, but points will be deducted for lateness.

This week’s assignment will be to select a poem and then create a video to go with it.

Tomorrow is the award “thing” for the public service announcement. Half of you do NOT have signed releases (Thomas, Isaac, William and Mohammed). Get a copy from me today or we’ll have to put you to the side tomorrow and you will not be filmed.


Monday, May 6, 2019

Good morning. Please do your attendance.

Your next project will be a movie review. You’ll work and film in pairs. So today, answer these questions (create a document, name it YOUR NAME movie review).

  1. Film title.
  2. What you expected from the film.
  3. Genre: what type of film is it?
  4. Does it have a message?
  5. Plot: what happens in the film? Does the plot make sense? Is it easy enough to follow? Is it believable? Avoid spoilers.
  6. Characters: Who are the main characters and what are they like? Who are the actors playing these parts, and are they good in the parts?
  7. What is the camerawork/ animation like? If there are special effects, what are they like? Are there beautiful scenes? Are there moments when the camera is used in an interesting way?
  8. Did you enjoy the film? Why/why not? What were its good and bad points?
  9. Write about a scene you particularly enjoyed or remembered. Why was it good/ memorable?
  10. Would you recommend this film? To what sorts of people? Why?
  11. Are there any other films you can compare this film to?

Before submitting your answers to the google classroom, put your name and your partner’s name on the Word document.

This is due today. NO EXCEPTIONS. We’ll film the reviews tomorrow.

Morning. Should we do announcements? Up to you.

Please do your attendance. 

Monday you watched a video that reviewed B roll (and A roll).

Today, I’d like you to watch this video. It explains ALL the tools in the tool box (tool panel) in Adobe Premiere Pro. Any idea why I want you to learn the tools?

I’d like you to download and save this handout to your desktop. I can print out a copy if you’d like one – just come ask me. Look it over for a bit. We will have a quiz on the tools on Wednesday as well.

Here are some flashcards for you to practice with.

Tomorrow we’ll have a quiz over this week’s reviews (B roll, all the tools in the panel).

Good morning. Please do your attendance.

Please check your grade in StudentVue. Grades are due at the end of the week. See me if you need help with any missing work.

Today, I’d like to make progress on the PSA edit. We need 2 different edits, we need titles and we need royalty free music. Once you have something to show, let me know.

Good morning! Please do your attendance.

You’ll have a guest teacher today.  I’m sure you’ll behave well. Should you choose NOT to, you will be sitting in detention tomorrow.

You only have ONE assignment today. That is to finish your Titan TV edit.

If you need help, ask your neighbor or students in the class who’ve already finished their work. And remember, the step by step video is still available – just scroll back to last Tuesday’s class post and click the link.

I’ll see you tomorrow.

Good morning! Please do your attendance.

I am at an off campus meeting today.

So then, for today, your assignment is pretty easy. However, it IS worth a lot of points, so make sure you do it and turn it in to the sub before leaving today.


Please download this worksheet. It has live hyperlinks in it. Click the link, THEN BE PATIENT while it loads!

Watch the 3 videos I link to in the worksheet,  then answer the questions.

Once complete, save it as your “FIRST NAME LAST NAME” and share it into your Google classroom.


Monday, January 28, 2019

Good morning. Don’t forget to do your attendance.

I hope you all had a good weekend.

I’m at a conference today. You have TWO assignments.

  1. Achieve 3000 – read the article “Enthusiasm and Attitude” and then do the activity. The score you make on it will be transferred into the grade book, so don’t rush through or guess.
  2. Once you complete that, you need to complete your How To video, export it and upload it to YouTube. In order to get a grade, you must share the YouTube link into the Google classroom.
