AV/Film 1:  We are wrapping up our Magic Vine Videos, showing students how recording something just right along with editing the timing just right can make their videos look magical.

We will then begin learning about commercial terminology and start working on how to script and shoot a commercial.

AV/Film 2 & 3:  Students should have created a Schoology account for my class.  I have provided them links to a weekly submission form which they must turn in every Monday to let me know what they are working on for the week.

Also in Schoology, they can find a study guide for tests and a Rubric I will be using to grade their video projects.
