This will be fun and we will learn a lot about camera work.

  • We will collaborate our minds to create ideas and camera angles that could make our project excellent
How long do you expect this project to take?
Until the end of the school year.
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them?
How might your project fail? (Conduct a pre-mortem)
Making the trickshots and creating high-quality videos, it may take a while to get good videos so we will need persistence.

If we get good feedback and if we are pleased with our performance
How should we evaluate your success?
We should saee if we have high quality videos and if we are using good trickshots
How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project?
Yes it can be measured because we will post photos of our work to the wiki
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas or possibly Rubistar.)
Design your own rubric.
“What are you making?” “Why are you making this?” and “Who is it for?”
