It's Your Business! Production Company Logo 18-19 S2

YOUR NEW PRODUCTION STUDIO:  (WHAT IMAGE DOES IT HAVE ON THE STREET?)

Made With YouiDraw.com
You are about to create a logo for your new production company.  This logo, in one way or another, must appear on all documents, videos, websites, and any other media that you create for this class until the end of the Semester.  You will eventually make a video logo as well, and both the one you design today, and the video logo should have a similar message and features/style.

Think about why your production company needs a logo.  What emotions should your design evoke in people who see it?  What types of messages will be attached to this logo, and how can you turn this into a brand?  Once you answer these questions, you are ready to design!

THINK about yourself as the owner/executive producer of a design studio.  You will eventually create a website, videos, and other media associated with this production studio.  What kind of studio do you want to create?  What types of entertainment/news/sports media are you interested in creating?  What social issues might your studio stand for?  How can you be creative with the symbol of your studio so people will recognize it, and want to see your movies, websites, or articles?  Take the answers to these questions, and create a logo for your new production studio! 

Having trouble imagining a name for your new company?  Check this out for a little help:  https://www.oberlo.com/tools/business-name-generator
Made With DesignEVO

Create a LOGO using photos, drawing, or any other medium.  Watch the video about why a LOGO is important "Why is a Professional Logo Important?" (Click Here).  You should be able to create something with either program.  I would suggest using the LogoGarden Application to start getting ideas, but to get a higher quality logo, you will need to use Inkscape (more information to follow tomorrow), or YouiDraw.com (See Below).

You can use the Free Logo Designer on LogoGarden to help you come up with an idea, but you will not be able to download your creation as a High Resolution Image.  There are literally hundreds of other free websites to help you.  Pick one!  Once you have designed it on LogoGarden, try to use a drawing program or PowerPoint to recreate your logo.  Once you have created it and saved it as a PICTURE, you should be able to use it to create all kinds of projects for your new prodution company.  HAVE FUN!

EXAMPLE PROJECT

AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MR. SCRIBNER

I was born in Bloomington, Indiana. I was raised in Indiana, Virginia, and Missouri until I was in the Second Grade. My family moved to western Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. I attended schools in the Upper Perkiomen School District from 2nd to 8th Grade. I was then transferred to St. Pius X High School in Pottstown, PA for grades 9 thru 12.

Growing up in rural Pennsylvania had many advantages. I was active in sports, outdoor activities, and once I was in Middle School, I was able to ride my bicycle just about anywhere. I also had many part time jobs since the age of 12 to support myself. I started working on farms in my area to make extra money. I bailed hay, milked cows, and chased calves around the barn when I accidentally left the gate to their pen open. I then spent time working for a stone mason who lived on our block. I spent a summer lifting bricks and blocks, mixing cement and building scaffolding systems. I learned a lot. I also delivered papers, worked at local fast food restaurants, and did maintenance work on a local golf course throughout High School.

My grades were horrible throughout school. I graduated at the bottom of the class from my high school despite scoring very well on standardized tests. I was accepted at Shippensburg University in 1986 for a summer program called Act 101. I was also accepted to the Antonelli School of Art and Design for my photography skills. In hindsight, I probably should have gone to the photography school. I did not succeed in college and partied too much. Eventually I flunked out. It was not all bad though, I was put in the position of needing to join the Army Reserve to help pay for school, and the leadership skills, training, and discipline would ultimately make that one of the best decisions I have made in my entire life.

I went to Basic Training in 1988. I was stationed at Fort Jackson, SC for Initial training and Fort Gordon, GA for “Commo” school. I made some of the best friends of my life while serving my country. I have excelled at military training and went on to be deployed twice overseas after 9/11. I am still very interested in the firearms training, first-aid, and other classes I was required to take. My military service also allowed me to see the world and to really have an appreciation of what being born in the USA means. I have seen the advantages that are taken for granted by others who have not had the same vision of poverty and war. I am thankful for those experiences as well.

I was married in 1992 to my oldest son’s mother. I was divorced and now am re-married to the mother of my other son’s. My sons are 25, 13, and 10 and are awesome! I will celebrate my 16th anniversary of my marriage to my wife this year. We live in our home near King of Prussia, PA. I began to try to be a teacher while at Shippensburg in 1987. I wanted to be a history teacher, but found my way into other jobs as I needed more money to support a family. I started in sales and customer service for various companies in the Philadelphia area in 1991. With a new family and child to support, I took whatever job was available at the time. I gradually, over the years, was able to turn one opportunity into another while moving from job to job every 3-4 years. I got better at sales and more professional in my manners and appearance. I have sold building products, health care services, engineering services, coatings and paints, and ultimately ended up as a kitchen designer and architectural sales representative. I also went to Gwynedd Mercy College from 2004-2006 and finished my degree in Business Administration 20 years after beginning it at Shippensburg University.

While on deployment in the Middle East in 2008, I was given the opportunity to take my Praxis (teacher’s) exams. I scored very well with no preparation. When I returned from overseas, I went back to Gwynedd and enrolled in the Teacher Certification program. I also approached the School District of Philadelphia for a job. I was given an Emergency Certification and allowed to teach in January of 2009. I was at University City High School for 3 years. I also taught Middle School at Crossroads Accelerated Academy at Meade. Most recently, I was teaching K-8 classes at Roosevelt Elementary School in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, and at Universal Vare Middle School in South Philadelphia. I am excited to be working with you here at Collegium Charter School in Exton, Pennsylvania.

In addition to teaching, I coach many sports for my kids, I play volleyball and lead both worship and missions teams at my church, and I spend time with my family as much as possible. I am also a Boy Scout Leader for my sons. I am interested in sports, video games, and construction projects around my home. My family and I also enjoy spending time outdoors fishing, camping, hiking, and riding bicycles.

Foods I enjoy include anything grilled, ice cream, and spinach dip with pumpernickel bread. I love to cook and enjoy cooking with my 13-year-old. In 2014 I completed my Masters Degree. I want to continue to coach sports and work with the Boy Scouts (BSA), improve the curriculum here at Collegium, and continue to teach as much as I can. Ultimately I might want to be a Principal or a Counselor as well.

ACADEMIC/LEARNING OBJECTIVE 
Students will learn to use Google Drive Documents by CREATING a ONE-PAGE Autobiography. Students spend the next two class periods completing the assignment. They must SHARE it with Instructor for Credit.

STUDENTS MUST START BY READING ALL DIRECTIONS ON CLASS WEBSITE!


Students will enter the room quietly. Once seated, they will log into their Google Account and Click on the Google Drive Button in the Applications Menu (Waffle) of the Browser.

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.
