Digital Video Project Timeline

Tuesday/Thursday
This project began with our watching the film The Five Obstructions by Lars Van Trier and Jorgen Leth. Upon completing that film, I assigned the Digital Video Project and as a class we talked about the film and generated our own list of potential inventive obstructions to work with.

Tuesday
The next class was an introduction to working with iMovie, followed by 25 minutes of either an “idea generation workshop” or time to start working on their projects, which ever students chose.

Thursday
This class included an introduction to working with Windows Movie Maker, with the remainder of the course time being an open studio day, where I provided “on demand” guided video instruction.

Tuesday
This was a Video Workshop day. We workshop our video drafts in a peer-review format, and left any additional time to continuing our video work.

Thursday
Digital Video Showcase & Discussion. Students volunteered to share their videos with the class, and then we discussed the videos in terms of production, message, intent, and so on.
