Bonus Final Project

On Thursday’s class, I will assign your final Website project. In the meantime, for those who are keenly interested in a particular field of study that we’ve worked on this year, I’d like to open it up as a bonus project for you to work on for the rest of the year.

Perhaps you would like to create another game or animation in Scratch. Or perhaps you have a great idea for a photoshop project. Or maybe you want more time to work on the perfect song in Garageband. Or maybe you have an even better idea for a Flash animation that you would like to create.

If you can’t think of anything original, you can redo an earlier assignment. Go through this website and think of an assignment that you didn’t do so well on earlier in the year, but you feel that with more time, you could improve your mark.

When you come up with an idea, please come up and tell me, or email me if you prefer, so that I know that you are working on it.


Marks, final animation scene

Here are the marks for the final animation scene. There are several of you who haven’t handed in yet. Overall, I was very impressed by the creativity and visual appeal by the projects submitted. I really hope many of you have chosen to take Visual Arts – Animation next year, where you can hone your drawing and animation skills, and have a lot of fun along the way.

Create a Product or Company Website

Your assignment is to develop a website for a product or company. The product or company could be real or imaginary. Try to be as creative as possible

Step 1: Think of a product or company that you would like to create a website for. Examples could be:

  • video game company or brand, car company or brand, athletic wear or brand, restaurant, clothing

Step2: Come up with a site layout of a minimum of 5 pages that will make up your menu of your site (eg. home, about, product, services, contact)

Step3: Design your A-master template. Your template must include:

  • a custom banner image that is a minimum of 468×60. Must be a custom photoshopped by you to include the name of the product or company
  • a horizontal menu that has rollovers that change color, with at least 5 pages
  • custom background color or tiled image
  • footer, that includes custom background color, and a copyright textbox

Step4: Design the rest of your pages. You must include:

  • Using Flash, create a small animation to appear somewhere on your website
  • a lightbox slideshow widget somewhere on your website (most likely on the front page)
  • a news item widget somewhere on your website┬á(most likely on the front page)
  • A form and a google map widget
  • A youtube video widget

When done, you will publish, and submit your .muse file along with all of the published files to the server in a folder that has your name. This assignment is due on Tue May 30.
