  • A fully realized, substantive project
    • OR
  • Process of learning new tech and producing a project as proof of learning – in this cases the necessary learning steps (tutorials to be done etc etc), must be built into the timetable
  • I further expect that you will do a substantial amount of the development at home, including making time to meet with your group as necessary (not necessarily face to face).
    • AND
  • That all time assigned to production during class-time will be spent on production, pre-production etc. If you are not working on your projects in the class time, I will give writing assignments to consist of the analysis of media projects.
