Movie Discussion Summary

During the Movie Review Discussion, I believe the top three most asked questions were: 1. Can we use PowerPoint for the movie? 2. How much of the grading will be focused on content and how much will be on creativity? 3. What is the maximum amount of time our video can be? 4. Can our movie be a skit or does it have to be a voiceover on our PowerPoint? 5. Is the Media depot a place that we need to call and make an appointment for, or one that we can just show up to?

  1. Can we use PowerPoint for the movie? Patrick stated that “some people have successfully used powerpoint as the vehicle to make the movie.” However, he did mention it takes a lot of time to make it do all you are wanting it to do. He believes other softwares are more user friendly. Patrick said you can export the PowerPoint as a movie file and it will work just fine.
  2. How much of the grading will be focused on content and how much will be on creativity? This was a common question but Patrick stated that all of this information is on the rubric to make the movie.
  3. What is the maximum amount of time our video can be? The video needs to be about 3-5 minutes long, which is a decent amount of time to speak and do all you needed to do.
  4. Can our movie be a skit or does it have to be a voiceover on our PowerPoint? I believe a skit would be fun to do and be more entertaining. It would also make the project more fun. Patrick said that creative formats are encouraged.
  5. Is the Media depot a place that we need to call and make an appointment for, or one that we can just show up to? A few people were curious to as if the media depot is a place we can walk into or if it was a place you had to have an appointment. Patrick and Adam thought you could just walk in with no appointment needed which is helpful for peoples class schedules and their timing with their project.

I was happy we had a discussion board where everyone could ask questions and voice their opinions. This will be very helpful towards all of us making our movie because these were the five top questions I believe people asked. I am pleased to know if I have any further questions than these, they are more than likely on the discussion board and answered. These were all very helpful questions.
