Year 12 Media Studies - Homework 2 and a 'Moan'

It appears that lots of you have not completed the Saul Bass research and posted this on your blogs which is quite disappointing. You should be spending 4 hours a week on media work outside of lesson time and this is not evident from looking through many of the blogs. Also, there are a number of you who have not yet e-mailed me with your blog URL address links - Shazna, Deepak, Becky O'Keefe, Becky Hammond, Luke Bradshaw, Harry, Ellis, Hannah Davies come to mind. I know some of you have done it, but I have not yet received an e-mail from you. My e-mail address is: ninanoo@btinternet.com

PLEASE GET YOUR BLOG POSTED ON 'THE NOODLE' ASAP - IT IS PART OF YOUR ASSESSMENT! 
If you want to see some great blogging visit Tara Costello and Joe Smith's links as they are looking super-duper. By now, you should have the following on your blog:
  1. An introduction to your brief and film production team with some initial ideas for your title sequence documented as an entry.
  2. Your completed 'Continuity Sequence' embeded in your blog.
  3. A 500 word analysis/critique of the work of Saul Bass having looked at a minimum of three Saul Bass titles and the documentary posted last week
HOMEWORK FOR WEEK BEGINNING:
1ST DECEMBER 2008

THIS WEEK I WANT EVERYONE TO CRITICALLY ANALYSE 2 OPENING TITLE SEQUENCES FOR FILMS THAT HAVE INSPIRED YOUR DEVELOPMENT OF IDEAS AND ENABLED YOU TO EXPLORE YOUR GENRE. I EXPECT LINKS OR EMBEDDED VIDEOS ON YOUR BLOG WITH A 250 WORD ANALYSIS (MIN) OF EACH SEQUENCE BY NEXT WEEK'S LESSON. BE PREPARED TO SHARE YOUR BLOG AND TO SHARE WITH THE CLASS YOUR ANALYSIS. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET DONE THE OTHER TASKS, I ALSO EXPECT THOSE TO BE POSTED BY NEXT WEEK. 

I'm sorry if I sound grumpy but I want the best for all of you and if you fall behind at this stage, it is difficult to catch-up later especially since Blogs record dates of entry! Alan and I are really looking forward to seeing the development of your title sequences and feel confident that they will look fantastic. However, it is essential that you put the work into evidencing and showcasing your film development as this forms a significant part of your overall grade for coursework and cannot be done 'last-minute' as sketch books could. Rise to the challenge! 

Finally, I know some of you are interested in creating an animated title sequence and this is great. Here is a nice little site I found to share with you that has some good tips for creating different styles of animation in i-movie. Check it out!
