1. Conduct and record your interview for your multimedia piece. Using the information I shared in class, please attempt to record the best audio possible. Choose a room or space with minimal ambient noise and if possible using an external mic such as a wired lavaliere or boom mic. If you are using the camera’s built in-mic, keep the camera in close proximity to the subject. Bring a DVD of the unedited record video to class on DVD.
2. Write and submit the 3 key points, ideas or topics that you will use to design the structure of your piece. Provide a brief paragraph of the style and approach you intend to use for producing this piece. If you are shooting on location with a subject, please include information on the choice of location, subject matter and the goals of that location shoot. Bring in the 3 points and synopsis on a single printed sheet with your name and subject’s name.
3. Provide a web link to a multi-media piece that you’ve found online that may be source of inspiration for what you would like to achieve in your own piece.
