Projects are large scale endeavors, that usually require a crew.  Projects may be done individually as well, but extra work may be required at no additional point value.  You must complete 3 projects per semester.


Documentary:  A short examination of a subject that is interesting to you.

Narrative: A short story that explores an idea through both plot and theme.

Video Art: Something that you might see in a museum.  Made from video, but without a story.

Animation: Of any sort, any subject.

PSA: Public Service Announcement – like a commercial for an issue that you care about.

Other: Got an idea? Pitch it to the class.
