Short Story Adaptation (Period 3) and Camera Basics (Period 1)

Period 3:

This week we viewed your student films.  Please make sure you've turned in your storyboards and screenplays!
You will have a test on rehearsal/production etiquette before spring break.  Study your notes!
Also, we read the short story "Desiree's Baby" by Kate Chopin.  We're going to adapt this for the stage for the 11th grade English classes.  Our performance date is scheduled for Friday, April 20th.  Please make sure you have read the story before Monday's class.  You can find it online here: Kate Chopin's Desiree's Baby.
Any questions, please email Ms. Yanchak.

Period 1:

We took notes on camera shots, angles, and movements.  You will be responsible for knowing and using this information.  There will be a test before you begin your film project!
Be thinking about who you'd like to work with on your film.  Groups of no more than 4 people (you can do this project by yourself, but it's a lot of work -- be warned!) will be reviewed before spring break.
