Basketball Trick Shot Proposal

Basketball trickshot video
Brenden, Fawaz
  • We want to make the most ridiculous trick shot videos in the gym.
What do you expect to learn? / Why are you making this?
We are making this to have fun and to learn about how to make those shots. Also how to edit videos thoroughly.
How will you be challenged?
We will be challenged because these shots are really hard. We also might need to get someone else to record for us.
  • Brings resources as needed (bjk1)

  • Continues working on the task even when difficulties arise or a solution was not immediately evident. (fa2)
How will this stretch you? (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.)
  • Basketball
  • Camera
  • Gym/Outside
Main Steps:
  • Outline the main steps to complete your project or provide a link to another site that has the steps. Below the link explain any additional steps you need to complete.
  1. Get permission from Mr. Whitmer
  2. Get a basketball
  3. Get a camera
  4. Decide on which shots we will take
  5. Make a storyboard for the shots
  6. Record them once we figure them out
  7. Edit them
  8. Post them
  • How will you document your process/progress beyond your journal entries?
We will record it with a camera/Fawaz's phone, it will be during academic lab and ILD. We will make a list of what shots we will do, at least 10.
  • If this is not an individual project, how will you work together so that all are learning/working equal to their abilities? Roles? Accountability?
We will take the same amount of shots and do the same amount of editing. Also Brenden will be bringing the basketball and Fawaz will bring his phone.
How long do you expect this project to take?
We expect this project to take about a quarter.
  • List possible resources/sources of inspiration to complete this project. Are there existing examples of the sort of project you want to complete? Has anyone else done a similar project in Thinkering Studio? What words did you search the wiki for when checking?
  • Who/what will be your "teacher"? (Outside expert, in class expert, book, video(s), website(s), Mr. Whitmer, experimenting, experience, etc.) Make sure your "teacher" is included in your steps.
  • How will you develop your PLN (personal learning network)?

What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them?
How might your project fail? (Conduct a pre-mortem)
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • How will you share what you have learned/created/made/produced with others?
  • Who is your target audience?
How will you/your group define the projects success? How will you know that your “good” is “good enough”?
  • When we have created a playlist of YouTube videos showing the first 10 shots we will attempt
  • When we post a list of video tips/tricks we will use with a link (and time) where we can see the tip/trick being used in a YouTube video
  • When we have done at least 10 trick shots, each posted to our playlist separately
  • When we have posted a compilation highlight reel
  • Do we get a minimum of 100 views? (Each thumbs up counts as 2 and each comment counts as 5)
