You are going to create a musical animation. It can be for anything (within school limitations) you can think of - favorite show, music group, product, person - anything. Be creative.
You must demonstrate the following skills:

Here is an EXAMPLE of how to cut to the beat of music. This is NOT the song you use for this project:
Get the Flash Player to see this player.

First part is NOT cut to the beat, just thrown in with the music; 2ns part is cut to the beat however not very creatively; 3rd part is cut to the beat with animation.

When you are done, look it over and ask yourself: "Did I impress myself with my movie?"

Here is what I will be looking for when grading:
1. Creativity - how far "outside the box" was your overall design?
2. Theme - Did your theme come across, was it a good idea?
3. Difficulty - was it animated or was it just a slide show?

Try to impress, because we will be watching these (finished or not) in class.

When you are done, you will be handing in "Task 8 - yourname and theme.mov" to the file server.
