Last Day of Class

Today is the last day of class. This is your time to check your grades and get everything you need posted and/or turned in. I will be entering grades in the grade book. I will accept any work up until Friday however I will not be in the room, so make sure it gets posted on the blog.

As your final post please write a brief paragraph reflecting on your experience in this class, including things like what you learned, what you really liked, what you didn't like so much, and anything else you feel relevant.

Have a great summer!

iMovie Assignment

For this assignment, use iMovie to create a video slideshow of your work from the quarter. Requirements include:

- All applicable work you have accomplished this quarter (Photoshop pictures, B&W photography, photocubism, alphabet, illustrator/ indesign projects, etc)
- Add transitions between pictures for smooth transitions
- Have the entire video timed to music of your choice (school appropriate of course)

There will not be a demonstration for this project. iMovie is a very intuitive program. Open up the program and find your way around. I will be willing to help with any specific questions.

Next Flash Assignment

After you have completed the bouncing ball tutorial, create your own animation with flash. You can still use the ball if you want, but make it more complex. Have it bounce back and forth or off a wall, add a second ball or other object, bounce it into a basket, etc.
