Persuasive Commercial - Media Design 2 PBL Project

This is a 4 week project enabling students to apply their persuasive writing skills acquired in English class. Students will have the opportunity to choose a product that they will "sell" through a storytelling technique. This project can be a pure filmmaking project or depending on where students are at in their curriculum a mix of live action, animation and special efx. Approach 1: Students will create a cereal box. They can use Photoshop or collage to create their own cereal brand/ Or students will select their own product to use. Students will team up to create the script and shoot their commercial. Students will edit video with voice over and music added to complete commercial and add still at end of product. Approach 2: Students choose their product and write a script and animated commercial using 2D or 3D animation. Once students have refined their skills they could approach a non-profit and work with an actual client to produce a commercial for them. Potential tools: -Photoshop -Premiere -Aftereffects -Flash -Google Sketchup -Source Filmmaker (do not download Film maker during school it is a 7.5 gig download - yes I found this out the hard way with a call from tech - whoops) Essentially you can use any tool that is available to you.
