BASIC ELEMENTS NOTES:
What is it? First, there's the "digital" part--that's easy. Video, images, recorded audio--that part isn't rocket science!
So, let's take a look at the art of storytelling. We all know what it means to tell a story. But, what is it that makes a GOOD story?

There are a few basic elements that make a story really GOOD:

1. HOW YOU TELL IT. The best stories are told in a way that enhance the experience. Ever had someone tell you a story and they have an annoying voice or they take WAY too long to tell it and, before you know it, you aren't even listening anymore? How we tell our stories is a BIG DEAL. When people tell stories through images or video, the same applies!

2. THE BIG QUESTION. A good story makes people wonder "WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN???!!!!." It compels us to keep listening or watching or paying attention to find out what happens in the end. Movie trailers have this down to an art! They show you just enough to make you want to see the "rest" of the story!

3. PACING. This sort of relates to #1. It's tricky to tell your story in just the right amount of time that's not too long and not too short. You have to edit your content in a way that keeps it moving along, but doesn't leave the audience confused.

4. THE HUMAN CONDITION. The best stories have something in them with which the audience can identify or recognize within themselves. A good story about a super hero makes us feel good because it may appeal to our desire to see good defeat evil. A good story about a "nobody" becoming famous might appeal to our dreams of being a big success. A really scary movie triggers our fear about something. Whatever it is, that human condition is what helps an audience "connect" to a story.

5. SOUND--Music, sound effects--all of those beautiful auditory "accessories" are what helps pull a great digital story together. Think about it. When someone tells a story to little kids, they tend to use sound effects to make it more interesting. The same principle applies to "big" kids, too!

BASIC ELEMENTS FILL IN

ANALYSIS 6 WORD STORY

ASSIGNMENT:

1. WRITE A STORY ABOUT YOURSELF IN SIX WORDS.
FOR EXAMPLE, ERNEST HEMINGWAY ONCE WROTE A SIX-WORD STORY: "FOR SALE, BABY SHOES, NEVER WORN."
THIS IS ACTUALLY A SAD STORY. WHY IS SOMEONE SELLING BABY SHOES? WHY WERE THEY NEVER WORN? THINK ABOUT IT.
*SO, THINK ABOUT YOUR ENTIRE LIFE UP UNTIL THIS MOMENT. THINK ABOUT A SIX WORD PHRASE OR SENTENCE THAT WOULD REALLY CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF YOU!


WHAT MAKES A MOVIE “CLASSIC”?


QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:

1. DOES THIS FILM ADDRESS ANY SIGNIFICANT SOCIAL ISSUES? HOW SO? WHAT MESSAGE DOES IT SEND ABOUT THE ISSUE?

2. DOES THIS FILM TOUCH ON ANY CERTAIN ASPECT OF THE “HUMAN CONDITION”? WHICH ONE? HOW SO? WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT OURSELVES OR IDENTIFY WITH?

3. WHAT DOES THE FILM USE TO CONNECT WITH THE AUDIENCE? AMAZING CINEMATOGRAPHY? A WITTY SCRIPT? STRIKING VISUAL APPEARANCES? AMAZING ACTING? SPECIAL EFFECTS? HOW WELL ARE THE KEY TECHNIQUES USED?

4. WILL THIS FILM STILL HAVE “VALUE” FOR VIEWERS 20 OR 30 YEARS FROM NOW? HOW SO?

PROJECT 1 STEPS:

1. PRE-PROJECT DISCUSSION/ORIENTATION-THURSDAY

2. INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH INTO “CLASSIC FILMS” *USE THESE LINKS FOR REFERENCE:-THURSDAY
AMC'S TOP 100 CLASSIC FILMS
ROTTEN TOMATOES
AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE

3. SELECT CLASSIC FILM & WATCH WHOLE FILM OR SIGNIFICANT CLIP OF FILM. HAVE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN WATCH THE CLIP AS WELL.-OVER WEEKEND

4. WRITE A PARAGRAPH EXPLAINING WHY YOU CONSIDER IT A CLASSIC (CONSIDER QUESTIONS ABOVE). -OVER WEEKEND

5. INTERVIEW YOUR PARENT/GUARDIAN WITH THE 4 QUESTIONS ABOVE AND WRITE THEIR ANSWERS DOWN BELOW YOUR PARAGRAPH.-OVER WEEKEND

6. PRESENT PARAGRAPH AND INTERVIEW ANSWERS ALONG WITH A BRIEF CLIP TO SHOW TO THE CLASS.-6TH-TUESDAY/8TH-MONDAY
*MRS. B WILL PULL UP YOUR SELECTED CLIP FROM YOUTUBE. HAVE CLIP DESCRIPTION READY SO SHE CAN FIND IT.*
*REMEMBER, SOME CLASSIC FILMS DEAL WITH SUBJECTS SUCH AS DRUGS, VIOLENCE, ETC. YOUR CLIP SHOULD STILL BE SCHOOL APPROPRIATE. CLIPS WITH TOO STRONG LANGUAGE CAN BE MUTED AND YOU CAN PARAPHRASE WHAT IS SAID.
