Things to do:
1. Finish Watching your video - If you haven't yet, finish watching your movie with the tonal lens you are shooting for.
2. Begin cutting your video clips in iMovie. You may try to open the file up on your iPad. My assumption is that it won't work because...iPAd. But give it a shot. If it doesn't, you may go down to the library and open it in iMovie on the computers. You'll have to download the full video file from drive to the computer. You may also be able to use a chrome app called WeVideo which would allow you to use the chromebooks. I am taking a look at that right now.
3. Add music. If you need specific music, I can get anything and put it in your drive to add it to your videos.

Notice this Trailer and the Tone

YouTube Video


Notice how many seconds between each clip

So today is the equivalent of research for your piece.
You should all have your movie in your google drive. Make sure you know what tone you want BEFORE you watch the movie. This is the same way that you would do an interview or news piece. You have bias in journalism and reporting, it is more important that you embrace that bias and be able to create something interesting with that bias in mind.

Things to do:
1. Watch your movie
2. Have a notepad, piece of paper in hand to mark down times in the movie when words are said, or phrases are said that would match your tone.
3. Listen for music that would match your tone. Write down the time it occurred. Write down the time it occurred.
4. Watch for scenes/events that match your tone. Write down the time it occurred.

You will need about 1 minute worth of video which doesn't sound like a

Your job today is to give us a pitch.
In groups of 2 or 3 you must come up with one idea per person in your group with a story boarded idea for every 20 seconds.
Standard W5

The piece needs to be:
3 minutes long (9 storyboarded parts)
a human interest (something that makes us feel a certain emotion)
must include someone in our school but not in our class.

You have 50 minutes to get this done and ready to present.

It is March Madness!
Yay!

Your assignment is literally due on Thursday by the end of class so I am going to get out of your way after I present this.

In groups of 1-3 you must make a NCAA Tournament-Style Bracket for a topic.

For those that aren't familiar with the format, here is a quick "NCAA Tournament for Dummies" description

You may do this in a few different ways. 
Here are a few examples:

Your created bracket must have 32 objects to compete.

You must make an infographic. Best place to do this would be notability.

If anyone wants to make a form with voting here are some options:
