Next Steps for your Movie Project

Well today (MONDAY April 13) was the deadline for your essay. You have had a chance to have it peer edited and looked over by a teacher. The rewritten essay needs to be republished.

Hand in copy of essay to your home room teacher (73 give it to Mr. Mclean). Your teacher will read it and return it to you that period or before the end of the day.

The next step will be to use all of the essays from the group and to pick out the important information from each one. An example would be in each essay choose 2 to 3 ideas you think are important. In a group of 4 that would be 8 to 12 points to link together in a story line. Consider this another essay outline without the essay. You will now create a story board for this outline of important points.

At your Google Presentation you will now create slides showing the storyboard of your movie. Even though these say slide 1,2 etc add these slides to the end of your current presentation.

Slide1 Title
Slide 2 First big idea and supporting points
Slide 3 Second big idea and supporting points
Slide 4 Third big idea and supporting points
Slide Fourth big idea and supporting points

... and so on.

Timing is important. You only have 2 minutes to make people want to make a difference. You now need to think about what pictures would capture the hearts and imagination of people. You might need to film some live action shots for your movie too. All of this needs to be taken into consideration when creating this movie.

If you do not plan live shots and will just narrate over pictures and posters you need to check out this presentation.

The Storyboard is due on Monday April 20th. Your Movie Google Presentation and Essay should be part of your e-portfolio. Please embed both of them into your portfolio before the end of the week. Thanks.
