In case you forgot, or wanted to make sure you were doing it properly, I've written a guide to help you convert audio properly for use in Final Cut Pro.

Let's Write a Script!

Beginning Video Production (Per. 1, 2, & 4)

This week, let's write a script. So far, you've made a one-shot silent movie (The Lumiere). You've shot a scene from a gritty cop show (The Interrogation). Now let's get those creative juices flowing on a new three-minute original project.

Here is link to a page of suggestions to help you come up with an original story. Read it and see if any of the suggestions spark a fire in your mind.

The first step is to write out the story as you would in your English class: in simple prose, as a short story. You may write it in any tense you'd like. If you can't decide on one idea to write about, write two of them.

Two guidelines: 1) The story must be of subject matter appropriate enough to be approved by your ENTIRE family. 2) It must be a story that can be believably staged and filmed on campus.

This is due on Wednesday, April 1st. The next step will be revealed on that day.

Sunset Boulveard

Beginning Video Production (Per. 1, 2, 4):

Due Monday, March 30 - 1/2 page typed.
Using the link below as a starting point, research and determine what you believe the genre of Sunset Boulevard really is. Is it a Drama? A Comedy (Dark, Romantic)? Maybe even a Horror film?

P.S. Instant "A" for the paper that mentions what other film "borrows" the convention of a dead narrator.
