Learning objectives / What will you do: By the end of this activity, you will be able to:

  1. Create a shot list for your collage. In the future we will be using scripts, but for this project, if you have spoken information/narration, you can include it as notes in your shot list.
  2. Create a new project in Premiere Pro, saving the project file in a specified project folder on your C drive
  3. Create your own pictures and video clips using school cameras or your personal phone (with permission). Create or download audio files.
  4. Upload that media to your project folder on your C drive
  5. Import the media to your Premiere Pro project
  6. Compile and edit your collage in the Premiere Pro timeline
  7. Export your collage as an mp4 video (H.264 in the export menu)
  8. Upload your video to your project folder on Google Drive
  9. Get a shareable link for your mp4 video and submit to Google Classroom

Individually, you will combine images, video, and audio into a video collage.


What are we doing exactly?

Step One

Think of a subject for your collage! It can be about anything, but all your pictures and video clips must be related in some way. Some ideas include: a pet, vacation, favorite place, hobby, or even something fictional.

You must make a shot list for your video before starting production. Using one of our shot list templates or your own file that uses the same format, create a shot list for your project. If you plan to include any spoken narration, that can be placed in the Notes section. Your video should be between one and two minutes, and you need at least ten files (pictures and video clips, total) plus an audio track. Please see the rubric above for details.

Step Two

Start creating and gathering your media. It's OK to use old pictures of video clips from home, or you can take news ones either with a school camera or your own phone or camera.

The easiest way to get files from home to your school account is to upload them to Google Drive, then at school you can download them to your lab computer

Step Three

Use Premiere Pro to create your video! You will first import your media to Premiere Pro. Please see the first couple of tutorials on the lots and lots of tutorials page.

Step Four

Export your video to mp4 format, upload it to Google Drive, get a link, and submit that link to Google Classroom.

Congratulations! You're done! Woohoo!


Please read me

This is an individual project, meaning you each must turn in your own video. But, you are encouraged to help each other. You may help each other take pictures, record video, use Premiere Pro, and basically do everything related to this project.

This project has two deliverables with two different due dates.
1. A shot list to be turned in before your video
2. The final video
