Read Chapter 1 of Shut Up and Shoot.

Production Exercise 1. Self-Portrait.

Make a slide show with stills or a video.
Why are you here? Tell us a (classic continuity) story about your day or create a portrait (montage) of things you do using 19 shots at least once.
Record Voice Over and lay it undertone images. You may use music for rhythm or ambiance, but it has to be much quieter than the voice over narration. Those who are working with stills do not have to use short with camera movement (pan, track etc). The video should not be longer than 3 min.

You can find examples of shots that I showed in class here:
