#1 What's this?
Students watch a common craft-style video and identify (1) its main components and (2) what needs to be done to create such a video. They can also outline the main steps of the process.
Students choose or are given a topic. They create a script of their narrative for their video with relevant scaffolding if required. They consider (1) the purpose of the video, (2) the context, (3) audience.
Using their scripts, students identify the images central to their video story line. They draw the images or find some online. In doing so they consider which images will be appealing to their audience and also work well for their videos.
Students practise reading the script and manipulating the paper cut-outs. They can use a timer if there are limits to the length of their videos. They next revise the script as required.
Students use available technologies to record their videos. They explore how to operate the device and/or application if they are unfamiliar with technology.
If required or desired, students use movie-editing software to edit any parts which require editing.
