The following week, you’ll bring in your own footage and we’ll put it all together and send the videos to YouTube.  Script Writing and Camera Skills *This is Part 1 of the 2-part series.  Work in pairs to develop 2-3 minute scripts in which you tell your stories to a government official of your choice. The overall goal is to make an issue which affects you directly become “real” to someone in power by putting a face to a problem.  Once you have a rough script, you will make a storyboard and a shot list. Then we will go over some basic camera angles. Your homework before Part 2 will be to gather footage over the next week in order to edit it together into a video.
