1. Organize and host an activity for a group of at least 4 people (friends, classmates, and/or strangers) where you work on building a fort, treehouse, or shelter together. What will your structure be used for? Invent a real or imagined use for it. Document your work through video or photographs. Present your documentation as an edited video piece, a blog/website with text and photos, or both.
2. Expand on or revise the ideas that informed your video project. Make an entirely new video that sets out to do the same thing more effectively. You may NOT use any of the same footage or audio material as your first video.
3. Start a band where every member wears a costume. (It could be just you.) Write at least two songs that relate to your costumed persona(s). Document your project in one of the following ways:
A) Perform your songs live for the class.
B) Organize an off-campus performance and videotape it.
C) Make a complete MySpace site with photos and mp3's.
4. Dream assignment: You can do whatever you want. However, your proposal must be approved by me. Bring a 250-400 word proposal explaining the concept of your piece, how you plan to realize it, and what form you'd like to present it in.
