B7.1 Assignment: Multimedia of Social Issue

After having reviewed the techniques and tools used to create a listening text like Podcasts, your final assignment is to create your own Visual text (video), which will include these similar types of tools to develop.

Student Examples: 
The following videos have been shared by former students who understand seeing a sample of a project helps give you a good idea of how to develop one yourself.

As you view them, consider the following qualities of the constructed videos:

  • what their beginnings and endings look like, in particular. These are often the least considered or developed parts of the videos, but leave a significant impact on viewers.
    • A beginning might start with a title slide and title or it begins in a more dramatic and unclear manner to catch a viewer’s attention and then narrow into the focus of the video.
    • Endings might include a simple message in text letters on final slides or it has music building for an emotionally convincing end and a narrator’s voice to impact readers.
  • You can also consider things like the quality of videos used or sound recordings.
    • Some student projects have included video that was recorded off an iPad screen, or over-pixelated video, or better quality video that’s screen recorded or downloaded straight from a video source.
  • The tools available to use by your video making program:
    • transition types
    • font styles, sizes, colours

Supports:

  • Instructional Video: Overview of the characteristics and techniques to consider using to develop your video
