Year-end Assessment Activity

Using iMovie, you will be putting together a slideshow featuring your best 3 projects from this past school year.

Step 1: Gather all the work that you have done this year. You should have already done this as part of your website portfolio assignment. Find out if you need to take pictures of your hand-drawn work with a camera, or take screenshots of assignments, or final rendered animation.

To take a screenshot on the iMacs, use Shift-Command-4, follow the instructions here:

Step 2: Create a new project in iMovie and add all of your items to the timeline. Add transition title pages that accurately describe each project in a few words. Your final movie should be a minimum of 30 secs.

Step 3: Add background music to your project

When done, render your final video and hand it to the server as usual.

This assignment will be worth 20% of your term 3 mark.

Using Adobe Muse, you are to create a portfolio website that will feature all of the work that you have created so far this year.

  • Scratch, you will need to take screenshots, save them as .JPG
  • Photoshop, make sure you save them as .JPG
  • Garageband, you will need to upload the .MP3 files, and then create links so that users can click/download them
  • iMovie, you will need to take screenshots, save them as .JPG

  • Web design, you will need to take screenshots of your Adobe Muse website for the company or product, save them as .JPG

Step 2: You will need to create a site layout. You will need a front page and 4 more pages (about me, graphic design, audio-video, animation). For each of the sections, you will need to create a separate page that shows each project.

Step 3: Design your A-master template. You must have a custom banner, a background, and a horizontal menu.

When done, you will submit your published website as a folder, along with the .Muse file by Fri June 16.

 

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.
