Video with Content Project

You are to create a public service announcement or commercial or short film, or documentary that will be between 30 seconds and 3 minutes. Your project must have a clear theme using video clips that you have shot yourself.

1) Before you start filming: (Pre-production)

You must hand in (paper or electronically) a document that includes your:

- topic
- goal
- intended audience
- and script

Based on this document you must create a storyboard that includes all main scenes with:
- camera angles
- text
- sound effects
- music and transitions. 


2) Filming (Production)

Consider lighting, sound (voice and background), use of a tripod for non-motion shots


3) Editing (Post production)

You must include:

  • opening and closing text (intro and credits)
  • music track (max 30 seconds of copyrighted songs)
  • appropriate transitions
  • video effects (fade, scale, etc)
  • audio control (fade, effects)
  • Graphic creations (fireworks) (eg. a logo for your video company, still images, backgrounds, etc)
  • Text to enhance and emphasize your content


  • Voiceovers
  • Appropriate use of video and audio filters
  • Cool stuff that we haven't covered yet.
