Multimedia: Video & audio editing, 3D modeling, 2D image editing, and a whole lot more. 

The video below is from a class project where students developed a 30 second television advertisement as part of a marketing campaign to promote and sell a home they designed in Google SketchUp. The students had to make at least two models, one of the exterior of their house, another of the home's floor plan. Then, they had to use screen recording software to create video of the home. The final project was edited in iMove and Garageband.

The two images below are a  examples of a flyer and poster students created to promote their Google SketchUp renderings. In each, the students were tasked to design an original piece of furniture and later a house.  This lesson not only covered the technical skills of how to use Google SketchUp and 3D model software, but also explored some aspects of  page layout,  design cycle, and much more.

The following two videos are stop motion movies created by 7th and 8th grade students. The images were captured on DSLRs and turned into video animation on their  MacBook computers using iMovie. The students also used Garageband to create and edit their soundtracks.

The next video is a 7 minute collection of "Epic Skills" that this 7th grade student was so excited to share. This was not an assessed assignment, rather just to demonstrate some of the editing skills we learned in class. The project’s instructions stated "please keep your video limited to 30 seconds", but this guy felt needed to go that extra mile, or 2, or 5, or . . . . The final video here shows a trailer for an upcoming feature film . . . I can't wait!

Epic Skills

This was a simple formative project to demonstrate some recently learned technical skills in Apple's iMove software, though the goal was more about composition, story boarding, etc.
