FAO CGAA Yr 1: Unit 4 Storytelling 2011/12 - Online Greenlight Review Tues 14th Feb

Tuesday, February 14th is your Storytelling Online Greenlight Review, for which you need to produce and present two Scribd presentations.

Please note - your OGRs should be presented professionally - which means spell-checked, grammar-checked and designed graphically.  

OGR Presentation 1 should include the following content only.

  • The premise of your story
  • The logline of your story
  • The step outline of your story
  • Your script.

OGR Presentation 2 should include storyboarded content, character designs, concept art etc. and the introduction to your proposed written assignment for Unit 4, Your introduction should satisfy the required criteria, e.g. "A clear introduction to your investigation ... should mention the different published sources you have used and your reasons for choosing them.., conclude with a brief summary of the order of points raised."

Please refer to the Rough Guide to Written Assignments - available on myUCA/Storytelling/Unit Materials - for more really helpful advice on academic writing at undergraduate level. The 'Rough Guide' contains an example 'Unit 4' essay, which will give you a clear idea of what I'm looking for from all CGAA first years in terms of structure, tone and presentation.  You can find more advice on the group blog simply by clicking the 'written assignment' and 'academic writing' labels.

In addition, your OGR should seek to evidence that you are up-to-date with your life-drawing, weekly film reviews, and technical exercises etc.  Your OGR might include links to the corresponding posts and/or images. Historically, students that use the OGR to manage their weekly tasks in this way manage their workloads more successfully.

Tutorial feedback on your OGR will arrive in the form of written comments on the OGR blogpost you created.  Your written feedback may take between 1 and 3 days to materialise, but materialise it will! While there is no formal assessment value placed on the OGR, I can only respond to what is made available to me at time of the review. The more organised and focused you are at this stage in the unit, the more genuinely useful I can be. 

Please use your network of creative partners to disseminate this information and ensure that everyone is up-to-speed and on target for the Unit 4 OGR.

I very much look forward to reading your scripts!  Good luck and 'be amazing'.
