6th Period ONLY: Make It If You Try

Sixth Period:

Here is a link for what you all have been asking for. Extra brownie points go to the student(s) that break down the song and transcribe the lyrics.

Once again...
Type a one-page story in screenplay format about a student who is distracted from or having trouble reaching their goal of graduating. The next part will show how the student overcomes the distraction or trouble by "trying." Then show how the student has succeeded, or how he/she can "make" it.

If you are having trouble with the format, try searching for screenplay templates for your word processor. Here is an example.

Advanced Video Production Period 6 - Here We Go!

Period 6:

Ladies and gents, we've got a big week ahead of us.

On Tuesday, we will share all of our story ideas for the "Make It If You Try" music video project.

We will also be assigning textbooks for everyone to take home and start reading. By Friday, February 20, read Chapters 1 through 3 (pps. 1-33) from the Pulling Off Your Shorts text. Make sure to study the "Reshoot" sections of each chapter.

For further help in Chapter 2, please read the following link from the Scriptwriters Network Website.

On Tuesday, it is expected that Jordon and Joshua have a shooting draft finished for their Untitled RR Project, which means two things: One, they will now begin to break down the script for Locations, Characters, Props and Wardrobe. If you are interested in a crew position, please speak to Joshua and Jordon. The second thing it means is that they need a title. Those who first get to read the shooting draft, please make a few suggestions, those boys are stuck. Also, let's congratulate them on being the first group to start Pre-Production.
