How-to Video Project
You are to prepare and film a 3 minute video instructing someone how to do a certain task: play a certain position at a sport, make a cake, play a video game, etc.
The video should include a beginning (tell them what you are going to tell them), a middle (tell them) and an ending (tell them what you've just told them). The video should include a script as well as footage that actually demonstrates the task you are explaining how to do.
The objective is to for you to actually instruct through presentation and demonstration through the use of a role model.
You also need to insert during post-production a series of pictures or footage about the instructional topic that supplements instruction.
Remember, the video should be in focus and properly
framed, according to the techniques we learned in class.
How you will be graded
Does your video actually teach something? You will be evaluated on how well you use the beginning/middle/end technique. You need to show footage of the task being done with voice-over. Guidelines for the the length of the video are not exact, but it should not last longer than 3-4 minutes. It should be appropriate for the amount of information you chose to teach.
You will also be graded on the appropriateness of the cover shots, or footage inserted during post- production.
