MICRO-SHORT - FINAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Follow these instructions carefully to submit your Micro-short project for final screening and evaluation. Please come to class with the first three steps already completed.

 

1. FINAL PROJECT SUBMISSION TO BASECAMP

 

Submit the following items to the Basecamp Dropbox/Final Submission folder as a single compressed project file.

Square Final Submission Zipped Folder: simpsonB_flandersN_Square_Final Submission.zip

 

 

A. FINAL ANIMATION FILE – A finished movie of your project should be submitted at 1920 x 1080 H624 Compression. Uncompressed files are unplayable and therefore un-submittable. Be sure to include a six-digit date to the file name.

 

B. VISUAL DEVELOPMENT PDF FILE - Include research, inspiration images, concept art and significant test renders as a single pdf file.

 

C. PANEL PITCHES FOLDER - Include all three panel pitches in separate folders as sequential .jpg files.

 

D. PROGRESSION REEL & MOVIES FOLDER Include the Animatic, layout Reel and significant test & process movie files.

2. PARTNER EVALUATION FORM

 

Print and fill out form before class and email to me directly with "420 Partner Eval" in the subject line.  Download Partner Evaluation Form here.

 

 

3. POST FINAL MOVIE TO VOICETHREAD

 

Follow this link to join the 420 Micro-shorts Voicethread group, then upload your final movie by creating a new Voicethread.

 

Go here for a sort tutorial on creating a Voicethread and leaving comments.

 

 

4. LEAVE COMMENTS ON VOICETHREAD

 

After the projects have been presented to the class, take some time to leave at least three comments on each project. Two positive comments on what you think is working effectively and one constructive comment about something that might add additional impact. Voice recording, text and drawings are all useful in communicating your responses.

 

Read over the assignment rubric and feel free to borrow some of the rubric language when posting your critiques.
