October 27, 2014 by Brian Harmon


What do you know about raising money with crowd-sourcing?  What do you know about Kickstarter?  Have you supported any campaigns?  Why?  Looking ahead to the AFFECTIVE VIDEO ASSIGNMENT, what object/service do you think might be a good candidate for your project?




Object in 60 Mini-Assignment:

Over the next two class periods, you are to produce a video that addresses, introduces, suggests, and/or explains a specific object, concept, or service in EXACTLY 60 seconds.  This assignment is designed to give you more practice with non-linear video editing while focusing your attention toward a specific purpose.  Your video must meet the following requirements:

  • Your video must run 60 seconds – no more, no less – including title screen and any credits.
  • Your video must take an explanatory, critical, reflective, and/or interpretive approach to its subject matter.
  • You must strip your video of all actual audio.  You may layer audio in your project as long as you avoid all literal video/audio recording.
  • Your video must be titled “__________in 60.”  There must be a title screen somewhere in your video.  You must also give yourself credit as the video artist/composer somewhere in the video.
  • You must secure permissions for all materials used in your project.  You must give credit for all media used in your video.
  • You must upload your video to your Youtube Channel and tweet a link to the video @techwriting462 with #objectin60 by the end of the class period on Wednesday 10.29.



Gather media for your video.  Be sure to bring your hard/flash drive to class.
