I have had to go virtual for my intro to field video class right before we started work on their short film project. I am going to use some of your editing exercises, scripts, and download footage to provide my students material to edit to partially make up for not getting to shoot their films. The Animatics/Animating Storyboards exercise is especially useful as an introductory exercise before they do their final project which includes voice performances from the actors we were to work with. This will give them an idea how to work with drawings or inanimate objects for their visuals.California_State_University_Fresno
