David West MEDIA & FILM Teacher

Greetings Media and Film Students!

There are plenty of things you can do with your unscheduled day off and prizes await you for clicking on the Edmodo icon below and responding to today's posting. And remember to bring back your Field Trip Permission Forms for the annual outing to the Lagoon Theatre to see the Acadamy Nominated Live Action Shorts on February 6th. 

IB Film-- we'll still be doing our oral presentations and this is an ideal day to do more research and/or writing on your Documentary Script Project. Media Arts II-- you can read the essay on Run Lola Run posted in Edmodo and continue brainstorming your embarrassing moment video. Media Arts I catch up on back assignments and study the new post on camera shots and angles.

And here's a reminder to all of the supplies you need to be successful in Media or Film:

1. Earphones or headphones.

2. An 8 gig(or more) SD card

3. A USB drive of preferably 8 Gigs for storage of video projects.

4. A notebook or folder in which to keep notes, storyboards, scripts and handouts, and of course something with which to write. 

5. Your student ID to check out cameras and other equipment. You may use your own camera if you wish but be sure to secure it at all times. We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.
