HERE IS YOUR ASSIGNMENT FOR WE EK #7:

NOTE THAT WE HAVE NO CLASS AT SWOCC STUDIO ON SATURDAY, 10/29/11.

Once you have created a "New Page" and placed some type of Heading at the top of the page to signify who's page it is, you need to formalize an OUTLINE of your project. In developing your television project outline, go back to the outlines we presented to you for the content of each class. If you cannot find those weekly outlines, they can be found, downloaded and printed from the http://publicaccessuniversity.wikispaces.com website.

Include the following in your outline:

1) Title of the television show;
2) Summary of show's contents (as if reading from a TV Guide)
3) Duration of the show (e.g., 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 2-minute PSA, etc.)
4) Set design description (what do you want in the composition of the shot in the studio?)
5) Props (do you need any)
6) Talent (Is this show to be hosted by anyone? Will there be a "guest" to be interviewed? Who?)
7) Crew (Who would you like to invite first to assist you with your project? You might wish to begin with others that have similar interests as yours, and if you've forgotten who is doing what projects then check out their pages and sign up to help them with THEIRS while you're at it.)
8) Estimated amount of time to complete the setup, taping, and "striking" of the set
9) What you'd like to suggest to others that you'd like to bring to eat that day to ensure that all volunteers enjoy their work with you and leave feeling as good as they did when they arrived.

That should be good for starters on the remaining weeks we have. Again, contact us if you have questions, by email or - this weekend only - by calling David at the phone number listed above.
