Imagine America

Post by Pianogirl123 » Sun 05.18.2008 2:34 pm

crate a 15 minute video about what america means to you. You need to create a visual narrative: a story with a behinning, middle, and end. You need to compile your images from the entire spectrum of American history and literature so as to reach a fully comprehensive definition of America. The final project should have a professional quality to it.
Topic: up to you

...WHAT DO I DO??? I'm really struggling to come up with a good theme, and then how to represent it.. I thought maybe something related to American Art/Science accomplishments, or how we stand in the Age of Information... maybe something about the whole media deal. But what do I do with that? Help much appreciated! :?

Independent thinking might be one topic to cross off your list.

After I've crated it do you want me to ship it to you or are you going to come and collect?

The others are having a little fun with the fact we obviously can't know what America means to you personally, but how about making a video about Great (historical) Americans who have influenced your life? Tell the class how Mark Twain made you decide to become a writer or how Samuel Clemens made you want to have an alias.
