Objective:  The goals of this assignment are (1) to plan your project shoot for logistical efficiency and storytelling impact (storyboard), and (2) to convey meaning through intentional framing, design, and placement (mise-en-scène).  Among other criteria, this assignment’s grading rubric privileges consistent screen direction, the rule of thirds, look space, headroom, and depth articulation.
Assessment:  Your grade will be averaged with other project scores.
Prompt:  Two things meet. Their meeting escalates to a climax. They withdraw. Tell the story in 4-6 well-lit video shots.
