Video 2 Winter Break Short Movie Homework

When you get back from break you will have two class periods (at least) to shoot a short movie for the SC/SW Film Festival. You will also need to shoot at least one day away from class.
Movies can be as short as three minutes or as long at eight.
You may work with a partner or four people can create a PART 1 and PART 2 of a specific story.
You may start shooting over winter break.
Simply put, this should be the best fictional story you have created.
A mockumentary style movie is OK.
You will be required to edit at least once during TAP or after school.

Please answer the following questions in great detail. This document is due the first day back from winter break.

1. What genre will you shoot? Action? Suspense? Comedy?
2. Describe at least three characters in great detail. Examples: age, hair color, personality traits, occupation, and disposition. What motivates your characters?
3. Describe the plot of your movie from beginning to end. Use three to four sentences to describe each section. Please describe shot locations within each section.
a. Intro
b. Conflict: All stories have some form of conflict. What are the characters trying to do or achieve?
c. Conflict Resolution 

4. Will you work with anyone in class?
