Video Alphabet Exercise

The purpose of this exercise is to help you become familiar with the camera, stimulate some creative thinking and have fun while you're doing it. 

The Video Alphabet Exercise is a creative way to photograph everyday objects that resemble letters of the alphabet. You can represent the letter either literally (e.g., A for Apple - where we see an apple in the shot), or you can show it metaphorically, (e.g., C for Confused when a person is represented looking confused). 

In teams of 2, select a word, but try to make it short between 3 and 8 letters. For example, "dog" or "book". 

Find visuals that create the illusion of the letter that makes up the word. You need to compose the object properly, making sure that it is obvious in the shot. Also, make sure that the object is sharply in focus and properly exposed.  Record each image for at least 5 seconds. 

Edit the letters to create the word. We will screen the finished edit in class. Let the rest of the class try to guess the word. 
Note: It's possible that some of you have used cameras before. If you have such experience, then challenge yourself to get more creative angles.
