ASSIGMENTS: Event Video, Column, Profile Video UPDATED

Here’s the rundown …

Event Video, due on the server by 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 10. This will be a 90-120 second video centered on an event. Find a voice to tell the story, though they may appear in it only minimally. Lots of b-roll and natural sound, let us feel like we were there.

PSA/Explainer Video, due on the server by 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 10. This is the explainer from earlier on steroids. In about 30 seconds, what can you teach us? Audio matters, matched action matters, no jump cuts. Perhaps you do something similar to this Peabody Award winning piece by two University of Oregon students (though you need more shots). Or maybe you take Lowe’s Vine campaign and expand on it. Or take maybe something like the BBC’s doing. (Note: This is part of assignment 9 from the syllabus, now worth 5% of your grade)

Photo Column, due on the server by 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 17. This can be either an audio slideshow or a collection of 10-20 images that show how you documented an issue or idea over time. Pay attention to that last part – this isn’t a one-time shoot, it must involved multiple visits or ideas. (Note: This is assignment eight from the syllabus.)

Profile or Event Video, due on the server by 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 24. This will be a 90-120 second video that profiles an individual or organization. Again, it needs a primary voice and lots of b-roll. Most of the audio should be nat sound, some can be from an interview. (Note: This is part of assignment 9 from the syllabus, now worth 15% of your grade)
