3G :: SOUND :: final crit requirements

  • final swf and fla file. filenames: na_lastname_nonlinear.swf, na_lastname_nonlinear.fla
  • final collection of carefully edited mp3 files. filenames: lastname_voice.mp3, lastname_music1.mp3, lastname_sfx1.mp3, lastname_sfx2.mp3, etc.
  • for multiple files within a communication channel, simply add a number for each successive file.
  • collect all files into a folder labeled with your last name only and place in my CAS dropbox ten minutes before the start of your class wednesday. note that a timestamp goes on the folder when it's uploaded, so make sure you’re on time or your grade will suffer.
respond to the following bullets with a brief statement on your blogs. title it "statement for nonlinear project", post a screen shot, and label the post "NA". your statement will count toward your final presentation grade.
  • what music, voice, and sound effects bring to a narrative that is different from visual communication channels
  • the different communicative qualities of music, voice, and sound effects (compare and contrast)
  • the differences between simultaneous and sequential communication
  • user vs designer control of your project
  • participants’ ability to discover relationships through interactive play

class time will consist of 3-minute demos of your projects with no formal presentation. you will just click through the project and show how it all works. this will allow everyone to see all results.

the actual critique will consist of each student providing written criticism of two peers. your criticism of your peer’s project will count toward your participation grade. post your crit as a comment on the appropriate classmate's blog post titled "statement on nonlinear project".
