We have watched the old and tired PSA's on KVHS, time to do it our way. In our PSAs we need to get our audiences' attention while still delivering our message. Think of some commercials you have watched... which ones stand out & why?
Once your group decides on your idea for a Character Counts PSA, it is time to create your storyboard. Remember to be creative (and school appropriate- no violence, blood or gore) and think of unique and original ways to get your peers attention and still convey you message.
READ: How to create a storyboard
- You will be creating drawings (6 or more) that tell us the story and what your PSA will look like.
- Using photo size document (5h x 7w) @300ppi, landscape (horizontal) orientation for each drawing.
- Save the drawings as JPGS in a G: > Digital Art > New Folder > Stop Motion Storyboard. (storyboard1.jpg....)
- Each drawing should consider angle, framing and location (how close are you, are you shooting direct view, from above or below, etc). You must have a completely planned and well thought out storyboard presentation and present to the class before you can shoot your final PSA. Here is a Sample.
- Have 1 person create a new presentation in GOOGLE DOCS and share it with your group. Work together and create a single presentation per group, insert the drawings each on their own slide. When finished share your Google Presentation with Ms. McKay (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- PRESENTATION MUST INCLUDE: Title Slide with group member names, Minimum 6 drawings that tell that show what your PSA will look like. Each of those slides need a description of what is happening, and actions. You final slide will be the prop you will need to prepare and bring in.
