P351 Drama / Storytelling Project

Overview: Your Drama / Storytelling project can range from 3 to 5 minutes and includes both pre-production and production elements. You will produce this project with 1-3 partners. Each student will initially submit and pitch a story proposal and treatment. Once stories are selected and production teams chosen, each team must create a *script, visualize or storyboard key scenes, and carry out any other preproduction work.

*Script: Submit either a two-column script or a single column (drama style) script with corresponding storyboards.

Editing: In order for everyone to tell the story in his or her own way, students have the option of either turning in their own edited version or collaborating and participating equally in the post-production phase. Individual edits are expected. *If* your group wants to share in the edit process you must contact the instructor in advance and provide your strategy for how your group will collaborate with the editing. (One person could create graphics, another could carry out sound design, etc.)

This project is worth 60 points, broken down as follows:

  • 8 points: Program Proposal and a Treatment (Individually graded)
  • 12 points: Script, storyboards, and any other pre-production materials (production schedule, shot sheets, floor plans, etc.) This component also includes the release forms. (Group grade)
  • 35 points: Production (25 points for shooting/lighting + 10 points for editing)
  • 5 points - Critique - Be sure to address the process, crew participation, challenges and how they were dealt with, and the final outcome.

You wll turn in:

  • Project Proposal (find details here) and treatment
  • Script (either two-column or drama style with storyboards)
  • Preproduction materials (varies): This could include a list of props and wardrobe, shooting and production schedule, shot/location list etc.
  • Talent/location/intellectual property releases (copies of originals are OK). Make sure your project has legal integrity. That way you can enter competitions and use it for your professional reel. Please note which audio tracks you used and their source.
  • Final program delivered as an 1920 x 1080 HD file
  • Critique

All your materials (excluding footage logs) should be typed and neatly presented.
