This term the students will learn about radio broadcasting. Through using the design cycle, the students will make a study of a radio station and use this research to create an online radio station for SWA.
Today the students did a web search for a radio station to research. They also took a look at a small Australian community station here Radio Port Douglas
This station is run by Ms. Jane’s sister.
Today the Grade 10s learned to make a podcast. Here is a sample one. Click on the link
Students this week will learn more about logo design. Last week we looked at logos but there are still students that are confused between what is a logo and what is an emblem. Mr. Riga will lead the class this week to further your understanding between the two.
How to Make a Storyboard for a Music Video
The storyboard is a visual draft of a story; in this case, the story is set to music. The music dictates the visuals used in the video, thereby telling the story; or else the music supports the visuals, which means the story is already told and the music supplements the story. Either way, the storyboard provides a sketch of the flow of the audio and video. Storyboards are not set in stone and can be revised as needed. Here are a few guidelines to get you on your way to creating a storyboard for a music video.
Get the lyrics of the song to understand what is being said and copy them to Word.
Listen to the music to determine the tempo, beats and rhythm. Make notes on your Word doc.
Get a copy of the blank storyboard form.
Listen to the music again to document time codes, in minutes and seconds, for changes in the music, changes in rhythm and/or the playing of minor instruments.
Sketch a scene on the storyboard according to a change in the music.
Review the storyboard with the music to ensure the visuals and music relay the intended message.
Draw arrows from one scene to the next and write the type of transition you will use between each scene.
Present the storyboard to a third party for feedback
