Each day we will produce and distribute the morning announcements for our school. These announcements will go onto our class YouTube station and will be broadcast through the school on the large screen televisions. The outline for the day's broadcast schedule is available on this sheet. In addition to the morning announcements each day, we will add in a special interest story to liven up the show. It will be a quick 20-40 second spot highlighting one of five daily topics we will serve up in rotation. The schedule for those will be as follows:
The hope is to have a few shows this year, but the schedule really has been about doing the news. As we work through the various days of news broadcasts I hope we can sprinkle some Film Punch submissions and short stories into the mix. It is important that we work to meet the demands of the news show timely so we may have extra time to work on the additional projects.
Here is the schedule for October:
No School - Staff Development
No School - Columbus Day
Halloween Show - Costumes
Filmpunch.org is a independent film community that was started by a co-worker friend of mine back in 2012. It has become a lot more dormant in recent times, however, hidden within the halls of the site are 6 great prompts for filming. You will work on all 6 of them through this year and get your feet wet with independent short film projects. You will follow their prompts and completion is the priority. Grades are of a pass fail nature... with a wee bit of a rubric to guide you. Here are the links to the six challenges:
