60-Second PSA - MS Movie Maker (WeVideo) S1 17-18

"There are many different definitions for a public service announcement (PSA) or public service ad, but the simplified version of PSAs are messages in the public interest disseminated by the media without charge, with the objective of raising awareness, changing public attitudes and behaviour towards a social issue."
                                                                                                        - Wikipedia Definition



Over the next few days you will be completing a Public Service Announcement in MS Movie Maker.



TODAY: You will work with your assigned partner to CHOOSE A TOPIC, COLLECT OR MAKE PHOTOS FOR CONTENT, DECIDE ON MUSIC, and RESEARCH AT LEAST 4 FACTS!





Getting Started (from Center For DIGITAL Education Website)
1. Choose your topic. Pick a subject that is important to you, as well as one you can visualize. Keep your focus narrow and to the point. More than one idea confuses your audience, so have one main idea per PSA.

2. Time for some research - you need to know your stuff! Try to get the most current and up to date facts on your topic. Statistics and references can add to a PSA. You want to be convincing and accurate.

3. Consider your audience. Are you targeting parents, teens, teachers or some other social group? Consider your target audience's needs, preferences, as well as the things that might turn them off. They are the ones you want to rally to action. The action suggested by the PSA can be almost anything. It can be spelled out or implied in your PSA, just make sure that message is clear.

4. Grab your audience's attention. You might use visual effects, an emotional response, humor, or surprise to catch your target audience. Be careful, however, of using scare tactics. Attention getters are needed, but they must be carefully selected. For example, when filming a PSA about controlling anger, a glass-framed picture of a family can be shattered on camera. This was dramatic, but not melodramatic. Staging a scene between two angry people to convey the same idea is more difficult to do effectively.

5. Create a script and keep your script to a few simple statements. A 30-second PSA will typically require about 5 to 7 concise assertions. Highlight the major and minor points that you want to make. Be sure the information presented in the PSA is based on up-to-date, accurate research, findings and/or data.

6. Storyboard your script.

7. Film your footage and edit your PSA.

8. Find your audience and get their reaction. How do they respond and is it in the way you expected? Your goal is to call your audience to action. Are they inspired?

MICROSOFT MOVIE MAKER (WeVideo.com) Movie Marquis Project Directions

You will be making a number of movies with Windows Movie Maker during this class. Starting later this week you will work on creating a Public Service Announcement (PSA) with a partner. Start thinking of ideas now so you will be able to pick something for next week.

Watch the following clip on your own to get ideas about your Personal Movie Marquis. This is a short movie clip (10-15 seconds) that you will add to the end of your PSA to "sign" it. The Movie Marquis you are creating should be a reflection of your personality, and is intended to let people know who created the movie it follows. It can be used at the end or the beginning of a movie. I want you to pretend you are creating a Movie Production Studio and give some thought to the kind of movies and messages you would like to support. Be creative and have fun with this project. It can be serious, funny or anything you want it to be. Please make sure you use the clip you created in Soundation for this project. You may find pictures and other video clips online or sign out a camera. I have a limited amount of equipment, so you will have to share.



Please create a Movie Marquis in Windows Movie Maker. It should be 10 to 15 seconds long and use audio, pictures/video, titles and effects. You must create your music for this project with Soundation.

YOU MAY NOT USE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE MUSIC!  
When you have edited the movie and created it, please use the SAVE Movie Function to save the file and the video to the desktop. Upload that file to your Google Drive and share it with me for credit for the project.

Soundation - Creating Our Own Music!

As you enter the room today, go to your Technology Journal and create a new entry 
(Today's Date, TOPIC: Effects of Music).  Please read the following article to yourself:


Once you have read the article, please answer the following questions:

How Does Music Affect You In Your Daily Life?  How Often Do You Listen To Music?  What Is Your Favorite Type Of Music, And Why?  What Was The Last Song You Listened To, And How Did It Make You Feel?

We will be using Soundation to create unique, and customized pieces of music.  You must follow the directions below, and export your music as a .WAV-File so you can use it in an upcoming project.  Please follow the directions below to begin creating music with Soundation.com. If you have already used this program, it is your obligation in class to help others.  We will discuss the Essential Questions below in class prior to working on Soundation.com.  HAVE FUN WITH THIS PROJECT!

ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS

YOU MAY ONLY USE SOUNDATION. YOU MAY NOT LISTEN TO MP3's OR OTHER COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE MUSIC.

Today is your day to familiarize yourself with how the program works, and how to navigate around the different toolboxes. Save anything that you want to keep by uploading files to your Google Drive or save them to your desktop. Because other students use these computers, there is no guarantee that your work will be here tomorrow.



SOUNDATION.COM INTRODUCTION:  Open the Soundation.com Application. I have included a short VIDEO from YouTube to help you work independently. Once I have finished the demonstration in class, use your headphones to listen to your work while you create a personal track. Try to create a track that is 20-25 seconds and includes any of the instruments listed in the Loop Browser. You will be using the final cut of this track you are creating as the background for the Marquise Project in Microsoft Movie Maker later in the Marking Period. Make sure it sounds like you want it too. When you are done look under the FILE section to Export Song To Disk as a WAV File and save it. You must upload your file to your GOOGLE DRIVE and SHARE it with MR. S for credit.  Please upload the file to the DROPBOX Link below as well:


When you have finished the project, use the GRADING RUBRIC below to figure out your score on this project. Additional learning should include working on completing the Music Lyric Project listed below, or use SOUNDATION.COM (Link Below) to create another unique song and EXPORT it as a .wav file for use later.

    Integrity (13 Characteristics)

    13 Characteristics of People Who Have Integrity

    1. They Value Other People's Time: They value their own time so they also value the time of other people. They know you have plenty of other places you need to be and won’t hold you up. If you spend time with them, it is likely they will thank you for that as well.

    2. They Give Credit Where It Is Due: They do not take credit for things they did not do. They will always credit those who deserve it. If you help this person with a project he or she will likely mention your name so you can take credit for your work.

    3. They Are Authentic: They are their truest forms. You won’t catch them in a lie or being fake.

    4. They Are Always Honest: They are honest people that feel no need to lie as it is important for them to get to where they need to get in life honestly.

    5. They Never Take Advantage Of Others: They are not the kind of people who will take advantage of someone else. They love to build people up and help them get where they need to be. Taking too much from someone else will never be an issue with someone who has a lot of integrity.

    6. The Do Not Argue Over Disagreements: They will talk through things in a civil manner or not talk at all. You cannot and will not force this person into arguing over something completely ridiculous. I find this to be a very respectable trait.

    7. They Give Most People The Benefit Of The Doubt: They try to see the good in everyone. I think this is because they feel like maybe there are more people in this world that also have integrity. That being said, if you take advantage of them too much they will get rid of you.

    8. They Know When Something Is Bothering Someone: They have a great intuition that lets them know when something is going on. If someone is down in the dumps they will notice. Chances are they will actually do what they can to cheer you up.

    9. They Believe In Others: They accept your word as truth until it is dis-proven. That being said, they do not take lying well. And once you lie to them, it is unlikely that they will ever take your word again.

    10. They Apologize First: If they have done something wrong they will come to you and apologize. This is just how they are. They own up to their mistake and try to make things right.

    11. They Are Humble: They do not quite know their own worth. While they are very important and do so much good they don’t quite see it. You should remind them of it.

    12. They Do Good When They Can: They are always helping other people. They love to know that they have improved someone’s life. It gives their lives meaning.

    13. They Are Always Kind To Those Who Need It: Giving kindness can go a long way. When someone looks like they need a little pick me up these people deliver. They can brighten up almost anyone’s day.

    If you are someone who has true integrity, thank you for being who you are and thank you for all that you do. You really do actually make a difference in society, please keep up the good work. If you feel no one else is proud of you, know that I am.
