Part 1: Final Project Proposal
As is true in all media professions, the proposal for a project is very important. You will describe what you want to do and how you will do it.
The proposal must be:
- visually attractive
The quality of your proposal is important - it will receive its own grade.
First - see below to understand your medium and your limitations. It is better to do a modest product well than to do a very ambitious project poorly.
Write a one paragraph concept statement. This will essentially be your "elevator pitch."
It should describe your goals for the work - its intended content, or its narrative, or its physical appearance. In other words, describe what you want the viewer to see in this work. This is basically your "elevator pitch." Don't use the word emphasis in this description!
In the second paragraph (process), describe your production process. The parameters of the final project. Your basic means of carrying it out.
Then make a list of the shots you will want to capture. (You don't need to include every one of the 60 or more images - just the groups of shots, or motion-creating sequences.) For each group, describe the setting, the lighting, how you will create emphasis in the frame.
Be sure to include illustrations in your proposal - either made by you or found ones (that come close to what you want).
Be sure to make your proposal good looking and easy to follow.
Proposal example one
Proposal example two
Put your proposal in AW Express in .docx format. The filename should be <sec-lastname-proposal-v1.docx>. (Alternately, you can build your proposal as a web page.)
Proposal is due in AW Express at class 8a (Tuesday 4/22).
Note: most likely, you will have to submit a revised proposal <sec-lastname-proposal-v2> that will be due at class 8b (Thursday 4/24).
When I've approved your proposal, I'll move it into the "approved" folder.
You should not begin work on the actual final project until you have approval.
