9:45 Senior Portfolio / Game Team Presentation
There are a lot of you who are taking some sort of Senior Portfolio class for graduation. The amount of emails and phone calls I got yesterday for plenty of you is concerning. This is a GRADUATION requirement. This is super important and also super flippin easy. I bet you all could do ALL of the work in a few hours at most. Stop procrastinating. As far as I understand the things you all need are below:
- A Website (bootstrap, wix, html, wordpress, any of them)
- 3 Pieces of work with Written Descriptions
- Reflection Essay
- Recommendation Letters
- Community Service
I know all of you like to make the fanciest of things to represent your work. Not this time. You literally just need a website that works. Not responsive. No fancy bells and whistles. Literally just a website. Use the CAWD space. Use your own URL. Whatever works. But you HAVE to finish this.
Please use today / this morning to catch up on all this work. No slacking off this morning. I will be meeting with ALL of you to see where you are at in your senior portfolios.
Game Team Presentation Display:
Judah and Colton. Let’s be a bit more proactive this year. Let’s draw up a display that we can all agree with. What display objects do we need to buy? What worked at the game convention? What was bad?
I would like to solidify the electronics we are going to be bringing today. TV? PC Comp? Lights, whatever? I just need to know so I can plan to pack those things. I also need to know this sooner rather than later in case we want to buy a big sign or order something from Amazon.com.
Please use this morning to work with me in this planning. Also please focus on Senior Portfolio if that is applicable to you.
10:40 Break (20 Minutes)
11:00 Youtube to Animation Short
This morning we will take a stab at the Youtube to Animation Short project. This one is really fun and may be something a few of you have already done… (man meat) The idea to this project is to go find an audio clip, and basically redefine the scene / situation around that audio. Take a look at some of the examples below.
(quality of second video may not be that great….)
As you can see above, the videos shown are NOT the highest quality animations. But to convey the story through visuals differently than the actual events. Some jump from still frames scaling / panning around, and some go to frame by frame animating. So the style / quality is really up to you.
You have choice for you youtube clip, but this HAS to be school appropriate. So:
- No swearing
- No offensive jokes
- No references to “things”
- No hate
- No dying
- So on…
- 30-60 Seconds
- 1280 x 720
- Mouth Movements (animals, humans, aliens)
- Color (just the right amount)
