I. Watch Joshua Oppenheimer’s Act of Killing. It’s available for rent on all major media outlets: Amazon, YouTube, Hulu, etc. Post your thoughts on the movie’s “key,” or goal + a still from the movie that visually reinforces your point.
II. Read Evidence chapter from Crafting Truth. You can find it here: Evidence from CT. I will email later how we can discuss it.
III. Motion exercise is due. Export you movie with a H.264 codec. It should be less than .5GB in size. Name it FirstName CourseNumber Motion, ex. Anna 4728 Motion. Files named differently will not be watched or graded. Remember, you are graded on animation, videos and text have to move. 10 animations of video and 10 animations of text will get you a B max.

You are sharing this folder with TREM 3871 students, so watch all the videos, get inspired!
IV. Start working on your midterm – a film self portrait that uses interview (A-roll) and carefully composed cinematography (B-roll) to convey your personality. It is due March 31.
