Grade 9’s, Dr Tech here with a few comments and reminders about both projects that are running at the moment. Time as always is your enemy with both projects as you only have 3 weeks left to finish both – but remember you are only producing a product this time not any evidence/portfolio work.

Screenplay reminders:-

  • I would imagine you will be filming over the next week and a bit, so producers and directors will need to make sure that everyone is organised and ready for filming on particular days and times. You can film during lesson times, but you will also have to film afterschool or at lunchtimes to get everything done.
  • Make sure all information is placed onto your film pin boards so that everyone in the class knows what they are doing.
  • Once you have filmed a scene, remember to pass this onto the film editors as they can start editing that scene straight away.
  • Students have been asking if there will be a FOSCARS, and the answer is there is no time. The three films will be shown at an assembly if you all manage to film in time, and we can also make voting forms to see which is the best.

Animation 4 Action Reminders:-

  • Remember not only to watch your teachers demos for Flash skills, but to search out your own either on YouTube or other sites.
  • Here are some other great tutorial sites:- Webwasp, GotoAndLearn, Smashing, Cartoon Smart , Flash Banner Tutorials and there are many more….just go out and search…
  • Remember all you have to do is produce an animation promoting your organisation and cause, the style and content is up to you!
  • Note check your guide to see all the skills you should use within your animation for it to be of a high enough standard for a good creation grade!
