Produce a a 45- to 90-second video that could be used with a class in your discipline. video. It could be an elevator pitch, a how-to video or a digital story. Use Adobe Premiere or other software* that allows you to work in multiple tracks.
- WRITE - create a script. I takes about 30 seconds to read 75 words, so the length should be 115-225 words. Identify yourself and the topic at the beginning. Include credit for the music soundtrack at the end.
- PLAN - identify the shots you will need and the locations where you will record them.
- SHOOT - capture your raw video. We recommend (not require) using either the One Button Studio (Hesburgh Library) or the video camera described in the Remix tutorials.
We don't expect professional quality work, but excessively dark, jumpy or blurry video is not acceptable.
- FIND - locate copyright-safe music for a soundtrack; it must have a Creative Commons (CC) license that allows derivative works. Good places to look include Vimeo Music Store and ccmixter.
- EDIT - use Adobe Premiere* to produce a video
- Minimum settings: 1280 x 720 resolution, 30 frames per second
- Titles - opening and closing
- Fade from black at beginning, fade to black at the end
- At least three scenes (not a single uncut video clip)
- Music soundtrack for at least 10 seconds
(all the way through or just opening and closing)
- Export in YouTube 720p format.
- DOCUMENT - save a screen capture of your entire Adobe Premiere* project time line. This will show how you assembled the video. Add the image to your Google Drive media folder. (yours will probably not be as complex as the example below)
