A. Follow the Adobe Premiere CC Project Set-Up to set up your project and import your footage.  B. Next open the Basic Video Editing tutorial and skip to page 3 to edit a video that shows the best shots from your team in this order: 1. Your team's best wide shot. 2. Your team's best medium shot. 3. Your team's best close-up. 4. Your team's best pan. 5. Your team's best tilt. 6. Your team's best zoom. 
 Please note:  Do not add any transitions between shots, nor at the beginning and end.  Your video should start with the first frame of the wide shot, and end with the last frame of the zoom.
C.
 When your editing is done, export the file using this naming format: "Basic-Shots-NAMES" substituting the first names of each of your team members for NAMES. Remember to use hyphens instead of spaces between each name. When your video is ready, place a copy of it in the class Google Drive Drop Box to share it with the teacher. Once you have shared your video, turn in your team's log sheets.
 After submitting your video:  Refer to the Basic Shots handout terms and use them to discuss the reasons why you chose the shots in your edit.  When your team's video is presented to the class, one of your team members needs to use the terms to explain why each shot was chosen.
