Yesterday I had the unique opportunity to meet Lee and Sachi LeFever, the brains behind the common craft videos that you may have seen already on the internet. In this class I have showed the video about Google Docs.
They own the company commoncraft. They use video, paper cut outs and a script to produce 3 minute videos that explain complex topics, such as twitter, social networking and creative commons. Below is their famous Zombie video.
I’m telling you about commoncraft because it may be another avenue for your culminating activity. You could take an issue and try to explain it in 3 minutes. This would be great for you because you all have experience with cut out stop motion already. This venture would also include researching a topic, writing a script, adding some video and doing a voiceover. More details to follow!
