As part of my teaching load for 2013 I lucky enough to have a year 10 class for Multimedia where we focus primarily on digital media and digital media creation.
The first task that I have issued over the past few semesters is having the students in groups producing a ‘SuperBowl Commercial’. This focuses heavily on the planning aspects of producing film via investigating storyboarding techniques along with script and screenplay development.
In the past few years I must admit that the quality and effort that’s been placed in to these projects has risen considerably which has been great! I see this task as a mini test if you will as i do not cover a whole lot about camera use and technique. I leave all of this solely to the students to demonstrate which then gives me an indication of their knowledge behind camera and filming techniques!
So, without continuing to rant… Here they are.
