 Assignment

Now that you have had some time to work through the tutorials and at least some of the homework assignments, it is time to apply your new knowledge of this programming environment.  You will be creating a short movie that will showcase your skills.  Have some fun with this assignment…get creative!

Assignment requirements:

1.   Your movie must tell a story.  For example, in the tutorial, the bunny and cell phone scene would be considered a story.

2. Your grade will be determined using the following rubric.  In each grade category, you should consider the requirements as minimums.  Your success in completing these requirements and the quality of how you do so will determine where you land in that grade level.  Each subsequent grade level requires that you complete the requirements of the lower grade level, so to get a B grade you must also have included all that was asked for in the C grade level.

3. In addition to the creating the animation, you will write a short summary of challenges you faced in creating your animation as well as the solutions you chose and why,

4. To begin your presentation you must talk about at least two of these challenges you faced when writing your story and what you did to “fix” them.
