SMI 2010 Final Project
For their final projects, students are given much more flexibility. The thought being that at this point, they are equipped with the skills to be able to effectively create and write a story and how that story will be told visually. Students are able to work independently or in groups. I’ve definitely found students participating in the program for the first time that are under 16 sometimes have a challenging time coming up with a compelling story idea. For this reason, I try to encourage the older students to mentor and help support these projects.
Students are given ample time to brainstorm, plan and produce these projects. Almost three weeks in a six week program.
