We’ll spend time in class today continuing our work on the Photoshop movie poster and begin to evaluate and self-evaluate our drafts. We’ll have four groups (listed below). I’d like each of you to evaluate your poster and then respond to two members of your group by email. You should send your emails no later than Tuesday night, 2/2. In other words, each of you will send three emails: your own self evaluation and a response to the two other members of your group. Please copy me on all responses.
Your guiding questions are listed below:
* How well does the movie poster articulate a central concern of the Bruce and Hogan reading? Can one identify the article by looking at the poster? What might be done to make it stronger?
* Does the poster have a movie title and subtitle that captures the sentiment of the article? (As we discussed, your movie title should not be a repeat of the article’s title.)
* Do text and image seem connected in interesting ways?
* What revisions might you recommend?
* If you saw this movie poster, would you want to see this movie?
* Does the work properly cite images from Creative Commons?
Your grade for this project will be based both on your poster and your participation in this process.
GROUP 1: Christine, Tali, CJ
GROUP 2: Hannah, Andy, Pedro
GROUP 3: Matt, Lisa, Marisa
