    This video combines a great script, solid voice-over, and well-suited visuals to match the audio content. The script for this information is developed and presented in a compelling way that narrowly eclipsed many alternatives. Using questions to frame and structure the video's content also is a strong choice which establishes clear segments that build into an effective whole. The voice-over provides an authenticity to the information being delivered, as well as establishing a craft and human touch to the work. Also, primarily using still images helps establish the best synchronicity between what is viewed and heard. The clarity of message in this video is second to none.

    This video also combines a great script, solid voice-over, and a good selection of curated video footage. The script develops and presents a strong argument about the topic and includes multiple angles for consideration. The voice-over and audio is the strongest of the bunch, without question, combining excellent vocals and a well-chosen score. Using found video footage, the video provides a slick, professional-quality aesthetic that is compelling. The footage limitations of the provider may have created more challenge but what was chosen makes for a strong overall product.

    This video took a more creative turn in its storytelling, using original footage, and an overall concept to communicate the message. The combination of narrative informative communication is clever and quality. The concept of dramatizing an aspect of the topic to make it real is not one that is often chosen but can be remarkably effective, as it is here. The original footage shot worked well but the conceptual design of the video worked even better.

    Fred Haas:
    This project
    always an extraordinary honor for me to review the commendable workrenders a number of these creative, confident students in the Flat Connections Global Project. The thinkinginteresting videos. Creating a video based on research that embraces and preparationmakes strong use of the studentsmedium is evident,always challenging. However, it is a challenge well worth pursuing, requiring a whole range of skills. Distilling academic research, making decisions about storytelling, developing a script that works with visuals, creating or curating video assets, creating or working with audio assets, editing and I knowlayering multiple multimedia elements, and developing an overall aesthetic style are just some of the skills that these students were supported byput into practice while making their teachers,video projects.
    Consequently, students that attempt to shoot their own original footage, make use of their own recorded voice,
    and thisattempt novel storytelling while crafting their videos always rise to the top in itselfmy mind. What is a wonderful collaboration. I can’t thinkalways exciting is when the creativity of approach, technical elements, and synthesis of information all come together in a better projectcollective whole that works its participants as hard asinforms and engages.
    Design and Technical Quality:
    While originally shot video always gives projects an edge in my mind,
    this one – it isproject's crop of videos the strength was with a projectsolid script that requires higher order thinkingprovided structure and research to getclarity about the job done, while collaboratingtopic. Combined with peers and using technology skills. I must point out againa quality voice-over, there were a handful of videos that separated themselves from the teachersother selections in terms of these students are to be applauded for their guidance and supportdesign and for their visiontechnical quality. There are few substitutes that today’s education must utilize authentic projects like FCGP. To allwork as well when communicating complex information than a human voice paired with compelling visuals.

    strongest videos for Judging:
    The guidelines used
    this project were ones where the rubrics A: Design & Technical Quality and B: Synthesis & Construction. Technical content included sound quality, balancescripts provided a level of music/voice-overs, transitions,synthesis and clip editing. Synthesis included fitting withwell-structured ideas about their topic that were informative and engaging. Understanding how to distil the theme, sequential/understandable flow, good writing, evidence of collaboration using outsourced videos or actors,research on a topic into a clear and being professional with credits for content, graphicseffective message that is both informative and video. Of course, each student applied herengaging is no small task. Using original footage or his own special touchremixing curated footage to match the scripted content shows a level of creativitysynthesis that is immediately noticeable. As always, it is the combination and personality to eachexpression of ideas that makes for the videos.strongest content. This project also featured some genuinely creative approaches that deserve recognition as well.
