This exercise is to be an individual production. One that will provide each student the opportunity to become familiar with the software and hardware used to produce a video. This is also an opportunity for each student to implement studied video recording and editing techniques as well as use their imagination.
Each submission should:
be at least 2 minutes long
consist of numerous sequences made up of various camera angles
be made up of the right combination of appropriate original footage and/or otherwise, that results in smooth continuity
There should be some kind of storyline, theme, purpose or at least loop to make sense to the viewer
marry enhanced sound effects and fitting musical background audio
Safety Video- include visual branding with musical intro and closure,
Movie Trailer- An original or spoof movie trailer made up of your own footage
Genre Shifting Movie Trailer-
using actual footage change the type of movie by manipulating the footage,
sound, and look.

Music Video- Your own video creation for a popular song... or even better, a music class or student original song.
Lipdub- This is the exception as this is a one shot deal as far as the video goes, but you do have to do a lot of planning and match the sound. Examples: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8d3ueYCU83s
Other- This is an opening for students to come up with their own idea to submit for approval.
