Public Service Announcement (OpenShot) Video Project PREP DAY

"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 



Here Is The BEST Source for Information on how to MAKE A Public-Service Announcement:

PROJECT STEPS:
1.  READ ALL DIRECTIONS ON THIS POST BEFORE BEGINNING PROJECT
2.  Choose a PARTNER and a TOPIC
  a.  Use resources online to choose a topic.  Research ideas for your project.
3.  Create a NEW Google Document Named "



Over the next few days you will be completing a Public Service Announcement using OpenShot Video Editor.  Directions are listed below>



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?

Links For Music (MP3's)

PSA Bibliography Google Document Requirements
You and your partner must CREATE and SHARE a Google Document with Mr. S (hscribner@ccs.us) that has a paragraph about the reason you chose your topic, the names of the two students who worked on your PSA, and the six references that you used to find your facts. The following format must be used:

Digital Animation Video Clip 18-19 S2

Digital Animation Video Clip Introduction:
Today you will begin to create a Digital Animation Video Clip. There are many resources for creating digital movies, as listed below. Before class is over, read all directions in this post and learn about different types of ANIMATION.  Then OPEN Google Slides/PowerPoint on Computer and begin to create a "stick-figure" background scene for your longer digital animation using the draw tools found in each of those programs/applications.

Start by watching this introduction to Lego Stop Motion Movies

DO NOW:  Create/Send Technology Constructed Response Email

TO:  Mr. Scribner (hscribner@ccs.us)
SUBJECT: Digital Animation Project CR

BODY:  Describe, in 1-2 Sentences, what type of animation/cartoon you are interested in creating.  Think about any topic you like, and try to imagine a cartoon that illustrates (and creates action and characters) your idea or subject.  

Resources & Examples
First Animations:





Pixar Examples

Mr. Scribner's Examples

Tomorrow you will be using your scene to create a 75-slide (minimum) animated scene. Eventually you will EXPORT your slides as Images (JPEG) and using MS Movie Maker to create a Digital Animation with Music, Titles, and Credits.

Digital Animation Using Google Slides / MS Powerpoint & OpenShot Video Editor

When you make animation you have to create each picture on the film.
There are normally 25-40 pictures per second. When animating we recreate the laws of nature as we are able to relate to the action. However, with animation we can do a lot more than just follow the laws of nature. We can do anything, we can tell the story just as it is in our dreams.

Animation is a tool of communication.
When we animate we must not forget to put idea and intention in the movements. A movement without idea and intention is boring. Another great communication tool is the contrast; fast/slow, backwards/forwards and so on. If we remember this it makes us animate better. So if you want to animate something going up, you think go down first. If you you want to stretch your character, you squash him first. The best thing is to do the movement yourself or make a friend do it so you can study the movement. This also helps you plan your animation. The better you know what to do, the better you can animate it.

See The Animation Section of ANIMWORK (Click Here) for more information about this project.

I Can't Wait, I Want To Make Something Right Now!  Try the ZIMMERTWINS website for a longer animations made easy. You could have them talk to each other, about different things, or create news-style reporting cartoons.

But for those with limited options, here are some resources to help teach yourself animation. And a step-by-step guide: http://www.awn.com/blog/teach-yourself-animation-2d-tools-part-1

You Could Also Check Out: A European partnership created this guide to help teachers learn more about using animation to teach. With some basics in place such as how to create a good story and what tools to use, ANIMWORK puts everything into perspective for any teacher who wants to create his or her own animation.

DIGITAL SCENE & BACKGROUND PICTURE
CREATION PROJECT DIRECTIONS

IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT: CREATE A ZimmerTwins Cartoon and send it to Mr. Scribner (hscribner@ccs.us)!

A. CREATE A BACKGROUND SCENE TO START WITH:
Step 1: Log into Google or Open Microsoft PowerPoint on your Computer
Step 2: Create NEW Slides Presentation or NEW Presentation in PowerPoint
Step 3: Use the Drawing Tools to make a stick figure scene. Make sure to place specific layers in order and use a variety of colors and styles to make it vibrant.
Step 4: Export you Presentation/Slide as an Image and Upload to Google Drive
Step 5: SHARE your Image with Mr. S (hscribner@ccs.us) for credit.

REMOVE THE BACKGROUND FROM AN IMAGE USING: 

https://burner.bonanza.com/

https://clippingmagic.com/

https://online.photoscissors.com/

B. ANIMATE IT:
  • Your project must include at least 200 slides (Minimum).
  • It must have at least 3 layers of depth: Foreground, Middle Ground, Background.
  • It must have at least 3 things moving during the course of the animation. 
  • Your motion must incorporate LAYERS of movement where items move in-front or behind each other.
  • You must Upload and SHARE your project with instructor using Google Drive for credit.
C. MAKE IT INTO A MOVIE:
Step 1. Open your project in Google Slides/MS Powerpoint. (If you created it in Google Slides you must Download it in MS Powerpoint to Export the slides together.

Step 2. EXPORT your slides as JPEG Image Files to the Desktop.

Step 3. IMPORT your JPEG Image Files into MS MOVIE MAKER.

Step 4. Using OpenShot Video Editor, you must create a Digital Animation "Short-Film" by making each image "flash" for around 1/2-second each. This will give the impression that the images are animated. You should add Titles, Credits, and a short burst of music to finish the film.

YOU MUST IMPORT AT LEAST ONE (1) SOUND EFFECT/MUSIC AND ADD IT TO THE ANIMATION PRIOR TO SAVING IT!  (You can use freesound.org and audacity to record sound effects or music for use in this project.)

Step 5. SAVE MOVIE as an MP4 file, Upload it to Google Drive, and SHARE it with Mr. S for credit.

Have Fun with this project. If you would like to know more, here is the original link to 50 more digital animation websites at TEACHTHOUGHT.COM (Click Here)! Good Luck!

History of Digital Animation - 18/19 S2

Later in the course, you will start creating your first (maybe) digital animation project! For more information, and in depth learning, please review the "Pixar In A Box" Digital Animation Course on Khan Academy (Click Here)


Today you will learn about the History of Digital Animation. Please enter class and sign into your Google Accounts (If you are in the Technology Lab). Begin the class by viewing the following website about PIXAR ANIMATION (Click Here). Please watch the video on the bottom of the main page ("25 Years of Pixar Animation"). If you do not have access to technology, you may sit quietly and review the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sfzy05M-nzY Make sure you take some notes while you watch.


When you are done viewing the video you will discuss, as a class, some of the videos and movies you are familiar with, and how they were made. Please be specific about the techniques and animation used in the video you just watched. How has animation changed over the course of history, and where could it be going? What are some of the technologies used that are new, and how are we using these technologies in class to create our own video clips. Please review the PIXAR DIGITAL ANIMATION PRESENTATION here. Show the following PIXAR Animation SHORT FIlm: "That Was So Cute Bird" (Click Here)

When you have completed the discussion, you should open the following Google Document "History of Digital Animation Worksheet" Make sure you click FILE and MAKE A COPY to put one in your Google Drive. Make sure you SHARE your COPY with me as soon as you create it, to turn it in. Then you may follow the directions and complete the research portion of the project. If you do not have access to a computer or Ipad, please complete the printed copy on your own for homework. You may turn it in tomorrow.

Finally, Please spend some time working on your Digital Animation Project. Make sure you re-read ALL DIRECTIONS, and make sure you are completing the project correctly. SHARE the project you have created in your Google Drive for credit.

VOCABULARY
Animation A filmmaking technique where the illusion of motion is created frame-by-frame. The word comes from the Latin word, "anima," meaning "life" or "soul".

Animator The person who draws the moving character in an animated film.

Background A flat piece of artwork that is the setting for a moving character in an animated film. A background could be a picture of a forest, a sky, a room, or a castle.

Cell A clear piece of plastic on which the animator's finished drawings are painted. The cel is clear so that when placed over the background, the animated characters appear to be in a setting.

Frame An individual still picture on a strip of film. 24 frames equal one second of a motion picture.

Frame-by-Frame The filmmaking technique in animation where each frame is exposed one at a time and the object being photographed is slightly altered for each picture.

Ink and Paint The step in cel animation where the animator's drawings are placed on cels to be photographed. A drawing is outlined on the front of the cel with black ink, while the back of the cel is painted.

Kinestasis (Kin-e-sta'-sis) An animation technique using a series of still photographs or artwork to create the illusion of motion.

Model Sheet A reference sheet for animators that shows a number of different poses of an animated character. The model sheet also shows how characters relate in size to other characters.

Pixilation (Pik si la' shun) A stop-motion technique in which life-size props or live actors are photographed frame-by-frame. When viewed, they appear to be moving at a fast speed.

Script The written story of a film that supplies dialogue, camera moves, background, staging and action.

Squash and Stretch A drawing technique used by animators and originally developed at the Disney Studio to show exaggerated movements in characters. For example, if you wanted a character to jump, you would draw him close to the ground as if 'squashed' and then you would 'stretch' him out as he went into the air.

Storyboard A "storyboard" is a visual representation of a story. Pictures can be sketched on pieces of paper and pinned to a large board, or they can be drawn on a large piece of paper, comic-book style, to represent scenes in a film. A story sketch should show character, attitude, feelings, entertainment, expressions, type of action, as well as telling the story of what's happening. When you look at a board, it should reflect the feeling of the sequence so the viewer starts to pick up some excitement and stimulation. A story sketch artist at an animation studio us usually an artist who has special interest in illustration, design, appearance, and character.

Zoetrope (zo'-e-trop) An early animation device that spins drawings in a revolving drum to create the illusion of motion. Inbetweens Drawings that are in between the drawings that are at the beginning and end poses.

Extremes Drawings that are at the beginning and end of a particular pose.

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.
