~ As the photographer- say something quick about your short.. like where you took it or if you had
difficulty with the shoot-- never start by saying "Its not that good"... in any art class!

~As the audience
T--Tell something you like
A--Ask a question
G--Give a suggestion
*You may not work on other work while we are critiquing.. Either be on the class site or on the blog of the person that we are critiquing.

DO NOT SAY..
Its pretty..
I like it...
cool..

Elaborate on your comments.. what makes it pretty?
why do you like it? What is unique about this piece?

Do not raise your hand! This should be an open dialog.

story board-- Presenting TOMORROW


 storyboard is a graphic organizer that plans a narrative. Storyboards are a powerful way to visually present information; the linear direction of the cells is perfect for storytelling, explaining a process, and showing the passage of time. At their core, storyboards are a set of sequential drawings to tell a story. By breaking a story into linear, bite-sized chunks, it allows the author to focus on each cell separately, without distraction.


IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PHOTOS..open a blank page in Photoshop and start illustrating a storyboard using your bamboo tablet!  Add this to your planning page!
