Official Flash Project Handout

Categories: Handouts,Project Info No Comments

Linked below is the official Flash Animation handout. I’ve already approved everyone’s storyboards (if you did one), so I think almost everyone is ready to go! This handout will just serve as a simple reminder for what you need to do, as well as possibly help some of those who haven’t come up with an idea and done their storyboard yet. If you are struggling with this, please let me know, and I’m sure I can help you come up with a few ideas.

Photo Project – Assignment & Shooting Schedule

Categories: General Information,Handouts,Project Info No Comments

Okay, I have made the schedules for the in-class portrait project. Note I have also posted the assignment sheet so you can go through it and refresh your idea of what exactly I’m looking for with this project.

And here are the schedules for the portait sessions. Please keep in mid that this schedule names the photographer, not the subject. the photographer is responsible for reminding and making sure that the subject brings their prop(s) for the portrait session. In the case that someone forgets their prop(s), the photographer will have to improvise, but the subjects will lose points from their project.
