For this project you will be creating a documentary style presentation about MLK. 

Theme: MLK, a person of influence

Time Length: 4 minutes-5 minutes

Genre: Documentary Style

Due Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2012 by the end of the hour.

Must Includes:

  1. Content:
  • Biographical Information about MLK

  • Interviews from at least 3 people, not in Productions class, about MLK or closely related topic

       2.    Video:

  • 3 -5 second intro with title of documentary, students names and music 
  • Transition to close with rolling credits with music
  • Voiceovers of recorded research exported from Audacity
  • Utilization of Camera techniques (steady filming including use of tripods if necessary, different angles, bust shots, panning, zooming, stills)
  • Clean editing (transitions where appropriate, subtitle captions announcing the person/event, consistent sound volumes among clips)

      3.    Ideas for Documentary: You might consider using one or more of the following guiding questions to shape your documentary.

  • What makes MLK a person of influence?
  • What was MLK’s concept of freedom as outlined in his I Have a Dream speech?  Do you think we have accomplished his ideas?
  • Compare MLK with other, modern day people of influence
  • What are the ideas people have about the American Dream today?
  • How have (or have not) race relations in America changed since the Civil Rights Era of the 1960s?
  • Compare and contrast the Civil Rights Era of the 1960s with the Civil Rights issues of today.
  • Any other topic not seen here, but approved by teacher.
