Story Ideas

As discussed in class, please send me a few grafs on your primary idea by Friday, mid-day, so I can take a look at them and get some notes back to you. Doesn’t have to be too fancy – who/what the idea is, what your level of access will be, why the story is important and any challenges you think you might hit.

We are going to ditch this as a full audio slideshow project. Once you’ve heard back from me, start shooting stills so you have some idea of what will be happening. Think about long, medium and close-ups, think about sequences, interview locations, cover shots, transitions, etc. Use the still photos as scouting photos and then we’ll turn them into storyboards before you’re released with the video cameras.

And I talked to Dave, he’ll have books … bring checks or cash.
